Yes, our friends in Japan are at it again – revolutionizing the world of food, drink – and iphones!

Yes, there is breaking soda news to share!

Coca Cola has just announced a HOT Canada Dry Ginger Ale, featuring technology to keep the carbonation from being affected when heating up the drink. The drink also features a new recipe that cranks up the ginger and other spices to better suit the cold fall and winter months.

The new drink will run 120 yen (US$1.20) and goes on sale October 21…


More Hot Drinks From Japan!

Not to be out-done, the Kirin drinks company has unveiled a new HOT version of its popular carbonated drink, Kirin no Awa.

The regular, chilled version of the drink has a cider-like flavor…but, since Japan is all about new and wacky, you can also get it HOT!

Don’t Forget The Coffee Jelly!

The COLD coffee jelly was indeed different…and yes, I bought some…it was like sucking down coffee-flavored jello…so I did what you ALWAYS do with jello: I sucked it through my teeth…
