Before the significant update of the day, here’s a little story about Fanta Furufuru Shaker.

I bought this drink out of the vending machine of the Guest House today. There are two Fanta drinks – one is seemingly regular Fanta grape in an aluminum bottle, and the other is this bizarre little can with pictures of oranges shaking cans of orange soda on it. I like orange soda, so what the heck, right? 

The product name being “sheikaa”, combined with the oranges, makes me think I’ve got to shake this thing before drinking it – seems weird to shake a soda, but as I take it back to my room I notice that the yellow bubble on top says something about vigorously (shaking?) about ten times, so I guess I’ve got to do just that. I shake it up, cautiously pop it open, and take a sip… 

… and I’ve got to say, this is the most bizarrely amazing junction of texture I’ve ever experienced in a drink – and I drink bubble tea on a regular basis. But this is orange soda – sharp and bubbly already – with softer bubbles of orange jelly in it! Smooth and tingly at the same time.

America, you’re really missing out on this jelly-in-drinks thing.
