A banana-flavored Kit Kat? Tokyo, that’s why. Unfortunately, this pairing isn’t one of my favorites. Bananas aren’t my thing, and the banana flavor is too artificial tasting. The crunch is good though.

Looking at my pictures from Japan is making me miss the matcha-infused drinks and snacks. Of course, my surprising highlight was the Chocolate Cake Frappuccino with Matcha Shot. While I’m not a fan of the Frap, I ordered two of these while touring Japan. Other matcha items I should have tried… Ah heck, I wish […]
All good things must come to an end, and Day 16 marks the end of this memorable, caffeinated voyage to Japan. My canned coffee drink was sadly dumped at Haneda Airport when we had to go through security for a second time. Having gone through security at Hiroshima, I figured it was safe to buy […]
What coffee does a day in Hiroshima bring? A Beans & Roasters Caffe Latte for the Nozomi ride.
Driving from Kyoto to Osaka led to a rest stop where a Wonda Black kept me company. Again, I didn’t want a drink that could go bad during the day so bitter black it was.
With a new sticker affixed and majority of the labeling in Japanese, I tried this drink and thought the Wonda did live up to its slogan of “Wonderful Coffee.” This drink has the right balance of coffee and sweetness. Enough coffee flavor with some expected bitterness but with just the right amount of sweetness. The […]
A hot day in Kyoto warranted two drinks in order to keep cool. After walking from the Saga Arashiyama station to the Togetsukyo Bridge, I got an European black coffee via the Georgia brand. Nothing special, but because the day was just beginning, I didn’t want anything with cream that might spoil in the heat […]
Seems like my coffee picks are suiting my tastes more and more. Today’s pick is Suntory Premium Boss “The Mild.” And yes, I guess I like my coffee mild since I like this drink. It’s not too sweet, mildly bitter, but more importantly, it tastes like coffee. I easily finished this drink in no time. […]
Today brings Tully’s Coffee Barista’s Latte. For whatever reason, I was thinking of a Starbucks drink full of sugar and cream. Not the case at all. This is espresso and some kind of creamer. Smoother than a straight up black coffee and with a muted bitterness. I just need to adjust my expectation for this […]
Today featured a double hit. Sure, I was fatigued by the constant on-the-go. But really, the opportunity and experience of trying a new drink couldn’t go unpassed. The first drink was more for thirst purposes, but I think I found my favorite canned drink in this maroon can. The Georgia European is slightly sweetened and […]
Upon arrival to Hiroshima, I didn’t immediately comprehend the sea of red I saw. All around the train station, people were wearing red for the hometown baseball team, the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. In the midst of the season in first place of the Central League, the fans were in full force wearing jerseys, hats, shirts […]
While I’m thankful that there are many coin laundry services available in Japan, especially nearby our hotel in Kyoto, be warned that your clothes may shrink. That’s what happened to my pants. There can be no other reason why my pants have gotten tighter during this trip. That’s my story, and I’m sticking with it. […]
