GariGarikun ガリガリ君 is a popular brand of Japanese popsicle made by Akagi Nyugyo Co Ltd which is famous for four reasons: 1. the standard soda flavor is available everywhere in Japan. 2. It only costs 70 yen. 3. New flavors come out almost every month and 4. They have an instantly recognizable package design featuring their mascot character Garigarikun, an elementary school kid whose inexhaustible vivacity is only matched by the gargantuan size of his mouth.
2021 marks the 40th anniversary of the ubiquitous Japanese popsicles. To celebrate the occasion, Akagi Nyugyo is launching two new flavors to kick off the new year: Ginger Ale and Lemon Squash (similar to lemonade in the UK or lemon soda in the U.S.).
