In Japan, Star Wars mania is everywhere. There are posters, ads, products, and toys everywhere. Japan loves Star Wars. With the upcoming movie premiering in only a month, the ad campaign has many people excited about the movie.
Well, there’s a campaign with Kirin (it’s a drink company) where they are selling Star Wars themed soft drinks. They come in two flavours: Mets Blue Force and Mets Red Force. From what the label says, the Blue Force is refreshing, and likely a somewhat minty flavour. Red Force says spicy/dry (they use the same Chinese characters). It also says cayenne, which makes me think it’s spicy. I have to wonder if it truly is spicy.
I haven’t tried them yet, but I’d like to. I’ve seen them everywhere, so it’s only a matter of time. I’ll probably take videos to taste test them. So, look forward to that.
Which would you like to try?
