Suntory just might have the thing for you, but they might not. Late last month, at a concert of Final Fantasy music composer Nobuo Uematsu’s works, they gave out samplings of this much anticipated drink. Reaction has been mixed at best.
I can’t say anything else but this, if the Japanese, masters of politeness even when they don’t want to be, are talking about it like this… it might just be as awful as Mr. Space Apple, the last of my links there seems to say. Be sure to scroll down on that second link too, or you’ll miss his reaction.
But who knows, maybe it’ll taste better to the American palate. Or maybe people will be more willing to drink it anyways because it’s Luminescent Blue. I’ll let you know when I get my hands on one.

Today Fresca was holding a promotion on campus. Free Fresca is not something I’m going to pass someone up on, so I saunter over. To my surprise, there are two new varieties of Fresca… Peach and Black Cherry. I was familiar with their logo change some weeks ago at least, but these new ones had escaped my attention.
A few words on these new flavors:
Peach is peach, It tastes as peach mixed in to Fresca, while interesting, and still good, it isn’t something I’ll be drinking a lot.
Black Cherry is incredible. The flavors mix wonderfully. From one can of it, I have no recourse but to place it in the same realms as I hold Fresca. A lofty achievement. Normally when Iry something new and interesting it takes a while to grow on me. This, on the other hand, is like the first time I mixed Raspberry & Cream cheese ice cream with English Toffee ice cream in a shake. An instant hit to my tastebuds, and something I return to because it’s unique flavor is something truly impressive.
I am again reminded that I want an American company to bottle ginger beer, just so I can buy it for less than $1.70+tax a can. The same 12oz bottle for $1 as what I can get for birch beer would be excellent.
