Yuzu drink

20 Comments

This is the third product in Itoen's fruit juice beverage YUZU series. It has the freshness of the Yuzu fragrance, and the fresh taste of Kishunankou-ume. In one 500ml bottle, there are 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C. 140yen.

Tried it but I dont like it. I still prefer the yuzu drink I always buy from Y100 shop and the one they served at JAL flights. They're good.

I bought it too and I have to agree with Beelzebub, the flavor is really bland and you get a kind of bitter aftertaste. It is a shame as both Ume and Yuzu juice are great. This is a flop drink.

Probably high in sugars and no better for you than a bottle of coke.

Out of curiosity (or boredom) I tried it. The flavour was rather bland. But I didn't contract scurvy so it's hard to refute their claims.

@DentShop: "Yuzu" already exists in the West. In English it is known as "citron" and is sometimes used in French and other continental cuisines. But it certainly isn't used as often as it is here and is indeed a nice flavor.

Yuzu is going to change the West once it gets there. A refreshing, piquant but not overwhelming drink. We Gaijins are going to be blamed for holding it back from the "developed" world when they get it...

I can't imagine mixing yuzu and ume, 2 completely different tastes.

But then mixing orange juice and pineapple juice, 2 completely different tastes, is excellent, so... I'll try it!

It sounds good but it might take a while to get yuzu it.

Sounds like a good drink.

Itoen does make good drinks, but this is not one of them.

Also beware of the Fanta cola + orange blend. Disappointing.

Sounds like "use drink!" I had some girl students named "Yuzu". Kind of unfortunate if she even lives in an English speaking country.

It sounds great, but I wonder how much actual Yuzu juice is in it.

It is written on the bottle - !%

I drank it once and won't repeat. It is too sweet and artificial. It is not a new product though.

@galileolover Maybe because there is Yuzu in it???;)
