No sweet in 7Up or Sprite
Yes, it tastes sour! Why? I brought it up while talking to an old Japanese man, he said that it is because the people here think taking too much sugar may affect their health so they are wary of their daily sugar intake.
What do Japanese people drink then?
No wonder I rarely see any Japanese here holding a can of coke, lemonade, or Fanta. I thought it was simply because they don’t like soft drink or they prefer tea to soft drink due to cultural reason! I was wrong! It can partly explain why tea is the mainstream drinking product in Japan instead of soft drink like coke, lemonade.
I have said goodbye to the lemonade in Japan.
