The other day, Gari-gari-kun, who went crazy all over Japan to revive the legendary "Compota taste". Do you all know that Gari-gari has Mr. Sokkuri? That is "Garitto Soda Bar"! Sold at Lawson Store 100.

There are two products that are somewhat similar. Are you wondering which one is the best deal?

If you're curious, it's the eating editorial department that makes a thorough comparison. I bought it at a convenience store and compared it. Well, let's go!


The difference between the packages is obvious

■ Who is "Garitto Soda Bar"?


Garitto Soda Bar is a private brand popsicle sold at Lawson Store 100. It's a very good deal, with a set of 3 for 105 yen.

■ I compared it immediately!

I took out the contents. In the foreground is Gari-gari. The back is a soda bar. resembles…. It's very similar. It's blue and square, and it has a stick stuck in it. It's summer. (Still March)


Seen from above, it's exactly the same

Comparing the sizes, Gari-gari looks bigger. Is it about 5 mm thick? However, I feel that it is indistinguishable if each item is sold separately.

I also weighed it! Gari-gari soda bar weighs 90g (3.17oz) and Gari-gari weighs 109g (3.84oz). Gari-gari is a little heavier. Even so, it's hard to read the scale.


Gari-gari on the right seems to be 19g (0.67oz) heavier

Next, let's compare the cross sections. ... Oh, it's similar! You can't tell the difference by appearance. Both are blue popsicles on the outside. The contents are light blue shaved ice. You won't know this until you try it.

■ I tried it! Is there a difference in taste?

Well then, please. First of all, Gari-Gari-kun. When you bite into a soda-flavored candy, you will find a soda-flavored shaved ice with a crunchy texture inside. Gari-gari ... It's our usual Gari-gari-kun. It has become indebted to.


It's melting more ...

Next is the soda bar. When you bite into a soda-flavored candy, you will find a soda-flavored shaved ice with a crunchy texture inside. Gari-Gari-Gari-Gari-Gari-kun, our usual Gari-Gari-kun ... No! Something is wrong! What's the difference?


…Ah. The feeling of rattling is different! I feel that the soda bar has a larger ice cube. Gari-gari has a slightly finer ice cube and a delicate texture . The soda bar has a slightly strong taste of the shaved ice. The true nature of the discomfort seems to be around here. However, you may not be able to tell the difference in taste unless you compare them by eating them in this way.

It's melting even more ...
It's melting even more ...



■ Well, after all, which one is better?

Gari-gari-kun for 62 yen for 109g (3.84oz) and Gari-gari and soda bar for 105 yen for 90g (3.17oz) x 3 bottles. If you calculate the price per 1g (0.04oz), Gari-gari is 0.57 yen. The soda bar is 0.39 yen. After all, Gari-gari seems to be a luxury item. Just a little.

Alright. It turned out that the soda bar is 0.18 yen cheaper per gram (the unit is too small to understand!). Which one should you take? When asked, I will take Gari-gari. I can't forget the delicate shaved ice, so vote for Gari-Gari! I will conclude that Gari-gari-kun, who exceeds the taste, is more profitable!

However, it's hard to throw away the soda bar. The fact that it contains 3 bottles is attractive! That's right. If you buy one bag and share it with three people, you can eat one bottle equally. Viva, world peace! (What's the story)

By the way, the length of the rod was the same. It was exactly the same. It looked the same. … That's a hit !? When will you hit, Gari-gari-kun!


For the time being, Gari-gari is in the foreground. Indistinguishable means that ...

■ Bonus

Actually, there is also an azuki bar in the "Garitto" series. So, I compared it with "Gari-Gari-kun Rich Azuki Daifuku"!

This is completely different from what it looks like. Of course, the contents are also different. Gari-gari-kun Azuki Daifuku is mochi-flavored ice cream, red bean paste, and milk shaved ice. The azuki bar is azuki-flavored popsicles and azuki-flavored shaved ice. Unlike soda, this one was completely different. However, the azuki-flavored shaved ice is also quite good. "Everyone is different, everyone is good." I felt that I could hear the voice of Professor Misuzu Kaneko. Viva, world peace! (So what are you talking about ??)

The appearance and contents are completely different! It's different!
