Foreign Beverage Project, Entry #1

Filed under: analog — mhoye @ 2:49 pm

Name: Pocari Sweat.

Mental Image Evoked By Name: A huge factory holding thousands of Pokemon on treadmills, being watched closely by stern-looking men wearing lab coats and holding cattle prods. The Pokemon are wrapped in transparent plastic outfits that are connected by long blue tubes to the top of the bottling mechanism. Spent pokemon are being dumped bodily into a slot at the side of the apparatus, which throbs ominously.

Taste: Flat, thin Fanta.

Verdict: Unsatisfying.


  1. Odd. I am in fact right now in Belgium, watching world cup, drinking Fanta, and thinking to myself “this tastes like that Pocari-Sweat drink”.

  2. Speaking of Fanta, you should check out the most awesome soft drink flavour ever, Lactic White Grape Fanta. It’s impossibly difficult to find, but worth it just to say that you drank it, not to mention it tastes pretty good too.
