McDonald’s Japan gears up for summer with first ever Ramune McShake

By grape Japan

McDonald's Japan has introduced quite a few tasty takes on the classic McShake in the past, including purple sweet potato and Japan's most popular pudding flavored variations. Perhaps their recent collaboration with sweets maker Morinaga on a nostalgic Showa-era milk caramel McShake left a good taste in their mouths, because they're teaming up again for a McShake inspired by Japan's favorite summer soft drink--Ramune.


Ramune, for the uninitiated, is a lightly lemon-lime flavored fizzy soda known particularly for it's rattling marble-in-bottle design, but is traditionally enjoyed in the summer and often sold at summer festivals. The Morinaga Ramune McShake is inspired by Morinaga's candy version of the popular drink.

We don't need this. We need the Shamrock Shake made available all year.

I might not be first in line, but I'm certainly going to try it. Hope it's as good as the real RAMUNE. Love that stuff. And so much carbonation! Just look at my profile picture to see how much I like to BURP! I hope they don't take the carbonation out. That's the main thing I like.

I want one (or two . . . hundred). McD, Sutaba, KitKat, etc., in Japan are very creative. 'Tis not the case in the States.

As Irish as "top of the morning to ye", leprechauns and The Quiet Man.

(Being sarcastic here. None of these are things Irish people say, believe in or aspire to. Tasty shake, all the same, though).
