Given Japan’s love for Sakura, it was a given that brands, local or otherwise come up with tantalizing product twits around the beloved cherry-blossom. While Pepsi, Japan was quick to introduce a cherry-flavored drink right in time for the upcoming season, beverage giant Coca-Cola decided to keep us waiting with boring lemon flavored colas and ginger -based variants. The maximum the marquee did in this regard, is introduce a sakura milk tea, which barely managed to quench our thirst for a fresh, bubbly and citrusy beverage! After hearing (and finally working) on the repeated demands of cola-buffs in Japan, the brand is finally here with a tempting sakura-flavored coke!
Presented in a quirky pink-hued bottle, the container is just as intriguing as the beverage within. Done up in a mix of white with varying shades of pink, the aluminum bottle features soft cherry blossom leaves in the backdrop, with the Coca-Cola logo imprinted across the circumference in the center. The slim-line design is further finished with a striking red cap. The interesting design combined with the comforting taste of sakura presents a cooling experience in the sizzling times of spring. Furthermore, the fruity drink is said to be a perfect accompaniment for the upcoming Girl’s day celebrations in March as well as a great gift for school entrance ceremonies in April. You can now buy a 250-millilitre bottle of the limited edition sakura for $ 1.12 in stores across the country.
