Guess that flavor, J-style

Five flavors of Japanese cream soda at Komeda Coffee shop

Most Japanese people hate the taste of root beer (WHY?) so if it’s a hella hot day in Tokyo and you’re craving a root beer float, a soda topped with soft serve (and blasphemously adulterated with ice cubes) is about as close as you’re going to get.

But how close is it? Well…

The blue flavor is
Ramune
(Japan’s earliest take on the exotic western flavor called “lemonade”)

The yellow flavor is

The green flavor is
Melon
(which tastes nothing like real melons, but is one of the iconic flavors of Japanese childhood)

The red flavor is
