Ramune Soft Drink in Calgary?

  • 5

My kids have apparently discovered the joys of the Ramune Drink (Japanese soft drink) after a recent visit to Globefish. Took me a couple minutes to figure out how to open it as the waitress forgot to give me the "plunger" :-)

If you aren't versed in that universe go here - http://www.asiagrocery.com/sodapop.html

or search "Ramune" in Youtube for a visual...

Anybody run across this in a Calgary Asian grocery store yet?

  1. My first go-to for any Asian food item is T & T Supermarket (here in Vancouver). I've never looked for ramune there but off the top of my head, I would recommend checking one of the 2 Calgary locations of this mega-market.

        And they have other brands with the same kind of bottle for about half the price too. The Ramune tastes better though.

          Sounds good! Thanks - I'll check it out at T&T! Its more the novelty than anything...

            I just bought some of these at Qalala in Dragon City mall (Chinatown) for $2.75 or so each. One had a green lid, and tasted a bit like watermelon, and one had a blue lid and was more like bubble gum. I was able to unscrew the lids easily and retrieve the marble.

            The one with the blue lid was http://www.hata-kosen.co.jp/intro/100...
