Would you like some grape, ginger and sweet sake flavored soy milk?

Kikkoman announced that they will start selling 3 new types of flavored soy milk: grape, ginger and Amazake (sweet alcoholic drink made from fermented rice) on August 18.

Honestly, when another AkihabaraNews editor told me there are new icky flavored soy milk products that will go on sale, I immediately thought what's so wrong about these flavors. They sound good!

Are these weird for you?

Yeah, I shouted Ewww to the cola-flavored one that we previously introduced in March. But these new ones seem like they can go very well as milky soy drinks.

The Amazake soy milk will only be available for a limited time until May 2015. The other two will be sold as regular products without a time limit.

Terrie’s Take is a selection of Japan-centric news collected and collated by long-time resident and media business professional Terrie Lloyd. AkihabaraNews is pleased to present Terrie’s learned perspective; we all could use another take on the news - here’s Terrie’s:

France-based Orangina company made the "Lemongina" beverage with Suntory. It will be available exclusively in Japan in the world. You won't be able to get it in France!

We reported about Pikachu Cafe yesterday and lots of our readers seemed to be very excited about its cute dishes. How about My Melody Cafe for those who like Sanrio Company's characters?

We believe that some people were quite intrigued by the release of Japanese burger chain Lotteria's "Tsukemen" ramen burger that we reported on recently, but many others must have felt sick just by looking at the photos in the article.



Yesterday, Mos Burger, the Japanese burger chain, released some new items for their famous rice burger series.

One of them surprised us a lot. The Sabamiso Rice Burger might look like a very new concept for those living overseas, but actually it's simple and old - it is just made from the favorite Japanese lunch combination: Makerel cooked in miso based broth with some fine strips of leek as a topping and white rice - and put into a sandwich.

Okonomiyaki is a Japanese dish (sometimes referred to as a Japanese savory pancake) that you cook on a hot griddle and eat with a lot of special Okonomiyaki sauce, fish flakes, mayonnaise, and green dried seaweed on top. It's tough to eat it with only one hand, but Ministop made it possible to do that with their newly released product called Tsukimi-yaki.
