Would you drink hot ginger ale from a can? Coca Cola thinks you will

14 Comments

Fall in Japan, like every season in Japan, is a chance for companies to come up with new seasonal convenience store items with fancy color-coded packages. And in summer’s case, tons and tons of salt. In the fall, especially, manufacturers gear up with all kinds of crazy concoctions because it’s (probably) a verifiable fact that everybody eats like a damn starved pig in the fall and they know you’ll eat or drink just about anything if they put some pretty fall leaves on the package.

Enter Coca Cola’s hot Canada Dry ginger ale, which actually lacks leaves on the package – a severe marketing oversight – but does feature some cool technology to keep the carbonation from getting all wonky when heating up the drink. In addition to mad science-ing the carbonation to be just right, 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 and goes on sale Oct 21, which is a little later than the competition for fall specialties, but let’s cut them some slack. From the sound of it, they’ve put a lot of thought and countless hours into concocting the perfect hot ginger ale recipe.

Please spare me the sacralidge of nauseating new tastes in the quest for sales.

For all you know, it might taste fine. Plus, "sacralidge" isn't even a word.

I would, and I will and no one can stop me, don't even try.

I bet it would be good if you had a sore throat. Influenza season isn't far away.

I usually don't like ginger ale drinks but ever since i had that wilkinsons/asahi ginger ale drink, ginger ale drinks suddenly peak my interest. I'll definitely try this if its a cold evening.

Don't knock it until you've tried it. Probably better than drinking tea or coffee cold. This is unusual but cold tea and coffee is just uncivilized ;)

I like Ginger ale so this is probably worth a try.

Ugh, stuff like this is really bad for your health and society as well. Sick people lead to a sick society. Take care of yourselves, folks!

Why won't they sell these in America? I would love this!

If I get sick, I'll drink shoga-yu. I really find it effective for most digestive issues.

Coca Cola’s hot Canada Dry

No, thanks. I'm loyal to the brand jikasei.

Yes, society is obviously in peril from hot ginger drinks in a can.

If it was non-carbonated, I'd give it a whirl. But carbonated? Not a chance.
