There’s a melon cream soda in Japan. The bottle has penguins on it. I only came by it twice, but both times I was very hot and wanted a yummy, cold, refreshing drink. It’s been a few years and I still think about how good it was every now and then.


FlamingoFallout

Like this? https://www.flickr.com/photos/okinawa-soba/13794283055 might be able to order it !


McJumpington

Yes that’s the one :) - I’m going to have to look around to shop for it now! Thanks!!


FlamingoFallout

Found this seems a little promising https://www.hktvmall.com/hktv/en/main/Cheerio-Official-Store/s/H1006003/Supermarket/Supermarket/Beverages/Soft-Drinks/Official-CHEERIO-MELON-CREAM-SODA/p/H0888001_S_10144467A sold out there but gives the product info you you can hopefully find it! Good luck !


kittenstixx

$23 for a liter is slightly yikes but I guess if it's for heaven in a bottle it's a steal.


Kickbub123

It's in Hong Kong dollars. So divide by 7.8.


IceDragon77

I'm a sucker for anything melon flavoured.


McJumpington

Half of my time spent on vacation in Japan is just consuming melon flavored treats. Soda, gummies, buns, ice cream, anything really...I love it.

Thai iced tea


TMJ_Jack

Thai iced tea actually loses a point for being too perfect. The experience always ends on a very sad note because I suck it down in like 90 seconds because it tastes too good.


BobbiBari

This is why I ordered the tea online and brew my own at home. So much better not having to take the smallest sips possible to make it last.


Roboculon

No way. This is one of those things it’s better not to make yourself. It’s super upsetting scooping 50 pounds of sugar into a single cup worth of liquid, I prefer to pretend that’s not what it’s made of.


gwaenchanh-a

That's why you get a mix with the sugar already mixed in and you tell yourself it's tea


Tony_Pizza_Guy

I’m not Thai, but I’m amazed how this isn’t massively popular in the US like Starbucks. I think SB just has the trendiness. Because I feel like Thai Tea is **by far** better than most SB drinks I’ve had. I’d also say boba tea is usually preferable to SB personally, as well. But Thai Tea is the best hands down


ILoveToCorrectPeople

I don't know about the rest of the country, but here in CA it's sold at like every boba shop


[deleted]

Holy fuck this might be the first mention I’ve seen of that! They’re soooo good! Thai iced coffee is excellent as well.


Ok_Employee2270

I had a banana smoothie at a music festival in Hungary. It was the single best thing I’ve ever experienced in my life. The perfect balance of sweetness, temperature and texture. I went back every morning to the same stall for a banana smoothie. Never had anything like it.


jteprev

Damn I now lust for your mythical Hungarian banana smoothie. I love those weird perfect foods/drinks you can stumble on sometimes, I once had the perfect apple from a market stall in a small town in Argentina, I have never been able to find anything remotely like it again, I even went back a few months later and couldn't find the stall or any apples like it.


Globalist2

I had a corn "shake" in Kunming China that was magically delicious. It was basically corn kernels thrown in a blender. Nothing else. Also, most melons in Italy. They were perfectly sweet and almost spicy, somehow. Not that bland garbage we get in the US


Get_on_my_ballbag

Bro you sure your not allergic? I was eating manunka honey thinking it was weird how it was spicy. Turns out honey isn't and I'm inclined to believe melon isn't either.


njnorm

Yep, I mentioned to my wife how weird it is that eggplant makes your mouth and throat burn, and she was like—no, it doesn’t. Went 30+ years without knowing I was mildly allergic. Still eat it all the time. Mmmmmm…tastes like burning.


Heimerdahl

Haha, same with kiwi here! We talked nonsense and I mentioned how kiwis were such dumb fruits. So tasty, yet you can't eat more than 1 or 2 at a time, before your mouth gets all fuzzy. She looked at me like I was insane and told me that that's not normal. Guess I'm mildly allergic to my favourite fruit :'(


StarRiddle

Oh man, I just learned that I'm mildly allergic to kiwi now. I actually thought that that was part of it taste.


TannedStewie

Haha, kiwi fruit makes my lips feel like they have pins and needles. You mean that's not one of the selling points??


Oh-God-Its-Kale

Same here with walnuts. I thought my mouth going numb was part of the deal. Pretty idiotic in retrospect.


jschubart

I mean, people pay $1000 to eat fugu which does that. You get it for the price of a few walnuts.


Rattlehead747

I have it with raw tomatoes. Thought it was normal for the roof of your mouth to start bleeding while eating them lol


Toadjokes

I remember being about 12 going to town on like an entire bunch of bananas. Gobbling them down like a starved ape. I looked at my mom like 4 bananas deep and said, "I love bananas! They're so sour!" She ripped that fruit out of my hand so quick lolol


holy-reddit-batman

LOL my sister used to eat bananas so strangely! She would break off a 1" chunk and use her fingers to place it in her mouth. We commented on it once, to which she replied, "Well how else do you keep it from burning your lips?!" Only then did we realize that she was bypassing her lips. Yeah, less than a year later she went into anaphylactic shock after eating Special K with Red Berries right after a run. She developed the rare Runner's Allergy. Any fruit consumed within 30 minutes or so of a highly intense workout can cause an anaphylactic reaction. It got bad enough with bananas specifically that she requested me to not feed my toddler bananas for a couple of days prior to a visit so she could kiss her sweet cheeks! Edit to add: Exercise-induced anaphylaxis (EIA) and food-dependent, exercise-induced anaphylaxis (FDEIA) are rare but potentially life-threatening clinical syndromes in which association with exercise is crucial. The range of triggering physical activities is broad, including as mild an effort as a stroll. EIA is not fully repeatable (ie, the same exercise may not always result in anaphylaxis in a given patient). In FDEIA, the combined ingestion of sensitizing food and exercise is necessary to precipitate symptoms.[Exercise-Induced Anaphylaxis](https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3020292/)

ForTheLoveOfSnail

When we were in Vinales in Cuba, we went to our local bar for some drinks. I ordered a Pina Colada and it came out virgin with a WHOLE 1L bottle of rum for me to free pour into the glass. You had to drink some of the virgin pina colada before pouring in the rum, to make room. It was the single greatest drink I’ve ever drank. They were so good that we still talk about them now.


dabbers26

Try a mango lassi from an Indian restaurant - I can’t promise it’ll be as good but I think it’ll be close. No, it won’t taste at all the same, but if you like mangoes, I really think you’ll enjoy it.


mygirlcallsmedork

My brother and I had unlimited mago lassi from an Indian pizza joint in SF while we ate delicious pizza, and it is an afternoon of happy taste buds that will stay with me forever. Edit: the place was Zante Pizza

I didn't realize this was my answer til I saw it. I've never ever had a lassi that was less than delicious, and I've never not been sad when it finished. Agree w the other reply that the only thing keeping from drinking 2L a day is type 2 diabetes.

Piña colada on a beach


[deleted]

Thank you! I was going to keep scrolling until I saw pina coladas mentioned. They taste like heaven to me so I can’t understand why they’re not more popular.


make_fascists_afraid

because 95% of the bars you order one at won’t make it properly. they are going to use mix. only way to know you’re getting a good pina colada is to pay $17+ for it at a fancy bar, or make it yourself at home. and it’s kind of a pain in the ass to make, so it’s not exactly the kind of drink you just whip up on a weekday evening. but yea, a really good pina colada made with fresh pineapple is incredible.

Lemonade that's slightly tart and subtly sweet Edit: Thank you all for chiming in. I appreciate the award and the suggestions be it brands or flavors to add. Someone had asked for a recipe so here is mine (haven't made it in a long time but I believe these to be the correct measurements): 2 liters of water 2/3 cup sugar 2-3 lemons (squeezed)(may need more depending on the size) mint leaves (optional and to preference) Mix everything together until sugar is dissolved, add mint after mixed ​ Edit 2: A little update. The hospital I work at just got a slushie machine put in the cafeteria literally today (9/29) and I get unlimited free samples for today and tomorrow. Lemonade is one of the flavors and I am currently enjoying one as I type this. Life is good.

AnOrangeBird

What? I've never heard of this


Thetacoseer

Some water dispensers have these little cones instead of regular cups. I don't think there's an advantage as far as how many cups for in the same size storage space, but I think they are significantly smaller in volume, so the water in the dispenser lasts longer. Also Google says it's more sanitary, because cups can't be left lying around, but I'm not sure what would stop people from leaving them upside down https://www.staples.com/SOLO-Bare-Eco-Forward-Treated-Paper-Cone-Water-Cups-4oz-200-Case-4BR-2050/product_887730?cid=PS:GS:SBD:PLA:FdBrk&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIqMygy7e5-gIVRMDICh1siwHxEAQYASABEgLbffD_BwE


nudemanonbike

They're also easier to manufacture. Single sheet of paper with some glue along the edge, instead of two sheets of paper with more glue. The normal cups also seem to be thicker.


AlekBalderdash

Yup. The absolute cheapest way to make something that mostly holds water for 2-3 minutes.


legquint561

Especially when you've been outside all day and need some


SimplisticPinky

And the best part is that the cones are too small to actually quench you properly so you go for another fill several times and experience bliss with diminishing returns but with returns nonetheless

I'm going to be purchasing some cones now that this memory has been unlocked.

You are correct. My preferred recipe is: 2 parts tequila 1.5 parts fresh lime juice 1 part grand Marnier Shake with ice, strain into glass rimmed with salt over fresh ice

The proportions are spot on, but to me Grand Mariner is just a little too sweet. I prefer Cointreau but I top it off with a little splash of Grand Mariner.

[deleted]

Maxtrix07

Believe it or not, there's scientific evidence behind the reason. The cabin air is 15% drier than the air on the ground, which makes passengers more dehydrated and dry-mouthed. The pressure inside the cabin is lower than on the ground, which makes it harder to detect odorants. Ginger Ale is a drink that manages to maintain its flavor longer when in drier air. So technically Ginger Ale, while flying in a plane, tastes 15% better than normal. Edit: no, it doesn't literally taste exactly 15% better.


mr-sprinklzzz

One of us! One of us! I get Ginger Ale on airplanes and nothing else. It's devine!


werekitty93

Same! What a bizarre thing for us to bond over lol


Navi1101

Wait is this a thing?! I always get ginger ale on planes too! I do sometimes drink it on the ground, but if it's not a morning flight where it's too early to drink soda, then definitely ginger ale on the plane, every time.


DaveTheDog027

Because for some reason (a nerd can probably explain why) everything tastes blander on airplanes. That's why everything is seasoned as fuck but you don't realize it unless you try airplane food on the ground. Ginger ale in the sky mutes the flavor slightly and I guess it tastes better that way to many people.

My parents moved to Wisconsin when I was young and became paranoid that they would have alcohol in everything. So they told me, as a 5 year old, to say the word “virgin” before “Shirley Temple” when ordering. Then anytime I ordered a drink, even at McDonalds, I would ask for virgin xyz. Virgin water, virgin coke, etc. The looks I would get…

I had one of these at a work outing, and the bartender made it look really fancy. A few people saw how delicious it looked and ordered the same without even asking what it was.
