Suntory Melon Pop Soda: I'm not sure what I expected from this atomic green soda, somehow even more neon green than Surge, the height of artificial soda in America. But I think I was craving some variety after not drinking any interesting beverages for some time. I purchased the bottle from a 100¥ discount vending machine. It tastes just as you would expect: super sweet, but not actually tasting that much of melon; more like liquid fruit gummy candy. I've actually just realized that I believe this is the melon soda you can get from some fast food establishments like Mos Burger, as I can't imagine how many other Melon sodas have this distinct green color. Would not recommend getting diabetes over a beverage as unremarkable as this one. 1.5/5.0
