So, I’ll be in Japan until the 10th of August, which means that this is probably going to be used as a showcase for weird food and drink items for the next month and a half or so.
Mind you, those posts are what get me the most traffic, so it’s a win-win: I don’t have to do much work to write them and people come to read them anyway.
Anyway, today’s item: Ultra cola. Actually, Ultra Cola AND Ultra Lemonade, though the lemonade is more properly based on Ultraman’s enemies. I saw these in a vending machine in Mukougaoka, which is a place name I wouldn’t like to say three times quickly, and invested 200円 into the purchase of a can of each.
Of course, what I didn’t realize was that even though the cans on display represented Ultraman and Baltan, the actual cans you got were random, selected from an assortment of Ultra-family members and villians.
So I wound up with a Zoffy and a Dada, but it could have been worse. At least it wasn’t one of the weirder new Ultra-brothers.
