Heat Me Up Some Soda!
Yes, our friends in Japan are at it again – revolutionizing the world of food, drink – and iphones!
Yes, there is breaking soda news to share!
Coca Cola has just announced a HOT Canada Dry Ginger Ale, featuring technology to keep the carbonation from being affected when heating up the drink. The drink also features a new recipe that cranks up the ginger and other spices to better suit the cold fall and winter months.
The new drink will run 120 yen (US$1.20) and goes on sale October 21…
More Hot Drinks From Japan!
Not to be out-done, the Kirin drinks company has unveiled a new HOT version of its popular carbonated drink, Kirin no Awa.
The regular, chilled version of the drink has a cider-like flavor…but, since Japan is all about new and wacky, you can also get it HOT!
Don’t Forget The Coffee Jelly!
I posted about my trip to Tokyo when my entire group went a bit mental at the sight of “coffee jelly”….not a hot beverage, but a very unique one…as well as all of those unique vending machines…including Corrado, who absolutely fell in love with them….
The COLD coffee jelly was indeed different…and yes, I bought some…it was like sucking down coffee-flavored jello…so I did what you ALWAYS do with jello: I sucked it through my teeth…
Here is a link to other wacky vending machine items you can get in Japan, like hairy crabs and viagra, along with GOLD:
And of course, above you see a row of vending machines, including one that is, in fact, a vending machine disguise….see the shoes at the bottom?
I LOVE JAPAN.
If you don’t believe me, then it’s time to share their latest new innovation – super-sized iPhone covers!
The Banana IPhone!
Yes, it’s the ultimate iphone cover for the monkey in all of us! Thanks as always to the terrific website “RocketNews24” for the story and great photos – as well as terrific japanese ads for the product!
Behold The “iBanana!”
The iBanana, as it’s also called, is an impressive 31 cm (12.2 in) long. As you can see from this ad, they are very impressed with its size!
It is designed to only fit the iPhone 5 and allows you to use the home button, screen, side buttons, and front and back cameras. It also brings up the question:
“Is that a banana iphone in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?”
Needless to say, it is quite the conversation starter…speaking of which:
