We found a new drink for Gage that’s similar to pop!
Actually, Gage’s Aunt Tina found a new drink for him!
Thank you Widipedia for helping me with information about this drink.
Ramune is widely known for the distinctive design of its bottle, often called Codd-neck bottles after the inventor, Hiram Codd. They are made of glass and sealed with a marble; the codd head is held in place by the pressure of the carbonation in the drink. To open the bottle, a device to push the marble inward is provided. The marble is pushed inside the neck of the bottle where it rattles around while drinking. The drinks are often called “mabu soda” in Japanese, for “marble soda”.
The original ramune flavor is lemon-lime. The word “ramune” is derived phonetically from the English “lemonade”.
This is the original lemonade flavor. It tastes slightly like sprite to me. Gage just LOVES it.
Including Original, there have been at least 35 flavors of ramune: Banana, Blueberry, Blue Hawaii, Bubble Gum, Cherry, Cola, Curry, Disco Dance, Grape, Green Apple, Kimchi, Kiwi, Lemonade, Lychee, Mango, Melon, Muscat, Octopus, Orange, Peach, Pineapple, Plum, Raspberry, Strawberry, Wasabi (available at Tokyu Hands), Watermelon, Green Tea, Chocolate, Vanilla, Root Beer, Candy, Bubble, Flaming, Sour, Sweet, Mystery & Yuzu.
We have only found the strawberry and original. I would love to find out the ingredients in these other flavors.
The first few days I let him drink as many as he wanted. I think he downed a 6 pack in 2 days. He’s down to about 1 a day now. I figured he would slow up.
One of the funny things is when we use his burping tube after having one of these drinks. The air that pours out of his tummy is unreal! Stinky too. We laugh about it. I am just shocked he’s not burping like a man after drinking this stuff!
Cheers to Gage and his safe new Japanese pop.
LOL Never thought I would ever be saying that.
