Konichiwa everyone. This is Boss from Japanese Snacks Republic. A Pop Quiz!
What is the name of this beverage that’s a stable go-to in Japan?
Hi everyone~! This is Saori from Japanese Snacks Republic~! ......? ......That’s Melon icecream Soda, right?? It’s a classic summer beverage, and recently it’s regaining its popularity as a drink that looks perfect on social media~!!
Yes! That’s correct! ......But apparently in other countries, ice cream sodas, are typically not green.
【SHOCKED】 Is it only in Japan that (Melon-Flavored) Ice Cream Sodas are Green!? I’m learning while eating Fettuccine Gummy that recreates the flavor of Summer Favorite Melon-Flavored Ice Cream Soda!
The Japanese ice cream soda?
When one thinks of ice cream soda in Japan, it’s typically associated with melon flavor.
Touch of melon flavor is added to a refreshing carbonated soda, and then topped off with ice cream and a decorating cherry—that’s the common version. It became popular in Japan about 100 years ago, and it’s recently getting attention again as a beverage with a “retro” feel.
Yes, in Japan, Ice cream soda automatically means melon-flavor. Of course, there are other flavors, but the consensus is that...... those are more like extra additions to the melon-flavor. But really, is foreign ice cream sodas seriously not melon-flavored?
apparently not......, let’s see.
Ice Cream Soda Outside of Japan?
Ice cream sodas abroad typically refers to “carbonated drink that tastes like cream (cream flavored soda)” or “A drink with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of soda, like coke or root beer.” Like Japan, a carbonated drink is topped with vanilla ice cream. But often, it’s not melon flavored.
Wow~~! So how did Japan come about the ice cream soda image of a melon-flavored soda drink that’s topped off with vanilla ice cream and cherry?
Well, there’s a theory that when ice cream soda first became popular in Japan (it originally came from US as a popular drink), melon at the time was an expensive commodity. So, by flavoring the soda like melon, they began to advertise the ice cream soda as “a modern and affordable drink to taste melon.
I see! And that legacy is still being continued today! ......Okay, so for non-Japanese people, this melon-flavored ice cream soda is rather a foreign beverage, huh.
Yup, and so today, I’d like to introduce to you the perfect summer snack that makes you feel as if you’re tasting the Japanese melon ice cream soda!
