I tried 7 Premium Dark Melon Cider 500ml (16.91us fl oz), a carbonated beverage from 7-Eleven. This product has a rich flavor and is fun to arrange. The selling price is 116.64 yen (tax included).
7Premium Dark Melon Cider 500ml (16.91us fl oz)
This carbonated fruit juice beverage is said to have a rich, dark taste, as if you were biting into a juicy melon. It has a fruity, aromatic, and satisfying taste, and is advertised as being made with fully ripe melon juice.
It has a bright green liquid color, and when you pour it into a glass, a large amount of bubbles rise to the surface. When you take a sip, the carbonation is quite strong. As the name suggests, the sweet melon flavor is rich, and even with a lot of ice, the drink is very drinkable.
Melon cider makes me nostalgic for the old-fashioned melon soda floats served at coffee shops. Some authentic café menus are decorated with gorgeous toppings such as cherries, cookies, and mint leaves, but if you make it at home, you can enjoy the atmosphere by simply putting a spoonful of ice cream on top. For the ice cream flavor, the standard vanilla is a good choice.
The contrasting colors of the vanilla ice cream and melon cider, not to mention the soft and mild carbonation of the cream, make the drink even more pleasant to drink. If you miss the retro flavor of cider, give it a try.
