Ramune is a beloved treat for many living in Asia. This popular soda originated in Japan, and now comes in a wide variety of flavors! One cool thing to note about ramune is the signature bottle that it comes in (officially called a Codd Stopper). The Codd Stopper seals the soda tight with a marble that is held in place by the pressure of the carbonated drink itself. To open the bottle, you must force the marble down into the small chamber using the plastic cap. Prepare yourself for the fizzy mess and enjoy!
The original ramune flavor was lemon-lime, but now there are over 36 different flavors including: Banana, Bubble Gum, Champagne, Curry, Disco Dance, Green Tea, Octopus, Wasabi, and Yuzu.
