Also known as ramenade, Ramune is a popular soft drink (soda) in Japan – which is sometimes known as ‘the marble drink’ – as the drink is sealed with a marble inside. The marble is held in place by the carbon pressure and when a device at the top is banged, the marble is released to a compartment at the top of the bottle. It remains there as the drink is consumed – making a rattling sound. Popular in summer, though available all-year round, the most common flavour is lemon-lime (similar to Sprite), but also comes in pineapple, raspberry, melon, orange and others. A unique and distinctly Japanese item which would make a great souvenir to take back to your family and friends.
