Sangaria 'Hajikete' - Cider drink

Posted by Linda on 08. 2013 1 comments
I can't believe that the last time I had posted a review about a drink or beverage was back in January of 2011! That's almost 2 years & 10 months ago! So I decided it's finally time to post another drink review, and this will be the first time EVER for me to review about a beverage from a Japanese company. Obviously being someone who has such a crazy obsession with Japanese snacks and food, it's ironic that I don't drink much Japanese beverages in comparison. But that's not because I don't like drinks & beverages produced by Japanese companies, in fact, I love Matcha (Japanese powdered green tea) and Ramune (a popular Japanese soft drink), and various modern drinks & ice teas produced by famous Japanese brewery companies like KIRIN and Suntory. I guess I'm just not as interested in drinks as I am with food and sweets, and that includes all drinks, Japanese or not.

Anyway, today the drink I will be reviewing is a cider drink produced by Japanese brewing company Sangaria, this cider is part of their 'Hajikete' range of soft drinks, in Japanese "Hajikete" literally means to "burst open":

I got this drink from my last shopping trip to Maruyu about 3 weeks ago, but I didn't buy it, it was actually given to me as a FREE gift! Maruyu often has special promotions in which they give you a FREE gift if you spend a certain amount of money. On that particular day I went shopping, they had a promotion on in which they gave you a can of this cider for free if you spend $20 or more in 1 transaction. Whenever I shop at Maruyu I typically spend about $20-$30, but often I can spend over $40 there too (that includes their ¥100/$2.50 shop upstairs), so I would usually receive the freebies whenever they have some kind of special promotion on!
Well onto the review, the drink was like soda, fizzy and sweet with a mild fruity flavor, it was very refreshing and a great drink to quench your thirst during the warmer seasons. There's really not very much to comment on the drink, overall it was a very refreshing and tasty drink.

My rating (overall):

I just tested and it is very tasty, soft, somewhat sweet and bubbly. I like it! =D

I love food, especially desserts & sweets, junk food and Japanese cuisine! But I'm a foodie who loves all kinds of good food in general ^_^
I like to review & critique about various food, sweets, snacks & drinks I have tasted/tried based on my OWN personal opinion & preferences. So you may not agree with some of my opinions & ratings.

Please take note that I am not a serious food "critic", reviewing & critiquing foods is merely a hobby I like to do in my free time ^_^

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
