Ramune, the quintessential Japanese soda

When you think of Japan, what are some of the first things that come to mind? sushi, samurai, karaoke, and...Ramune? If you've never heard of it before, don't worry - you're not alone. Ramune is a carbonated soft drink that's popular in Japan, and it's made with a unique marble-shaped stopper that seals the bottle. But why is it called "Ramune," and what makes it so special? 

Ramune originated in Japan in 1876, and was initially sold as a medicine. It wasn't until later that it became popular as a soda. The name "ramune" is derived from the English word "lemonade." The characteristic flavor of ramune comes from Cucumber extract, which gives it a slightly sweet taste.

Most notably, however, is its unique packaging. Ramune is sold in a glass bottle with a marble inside. In order to open the bottle, you must push the marble into the neck with the provided plunger. This will release the pressure inside and allow you to enjoy your beverage!

There are many different flavors of Ramune available, including strawberry, green grape, lychee, and melon! No matter what your taste buds are craving, there's sure to be a flavor for you. So go ahead and give it a try—we promise you won't be disappointed!
