Sakura, which is the Japanese word for Cherry Blossom, is an iconic blooming tree that can be found all over Japan during springtime. Sakura season is one of the most anticipated times of the year, because during this time, people from all over Japan including tourists, celebrate with picnics underneath the beautiful cherry trees.
With these tiny, beautiful pink blossoms being loved by locals and tourists, it’s no surprise if snack/drink manufactures take part in the sakura craze, leading to an abundance of sakura-themed treats in early spring.
Kimura Drink, the maker of the famous Japanese soda, Ramune, released a Sakura flavored Cola, made with actual cherry blossom extract to capture the authentic taste of spring. This fizzy concoction has a light pink hue and a sweet floral taste that is absolutely refreshing!!! (・ڡ・)
In our special April Anniversary box, we included the world’s first ever Sakura flavored Pepsi, and it was a HUGE hit! Everyone was extremely hyped and the flavor of the drink itself really lived up to the expectations!! As you can see from the images tagged to us using hashtag #tokyotreat below, our subscribers really enjoyed the famous drink and even kept asking for more!!
