Taiwan is known for many local delicacies and drinks, including boba milk tea, stinky tofu, oyster omelet, and sponge cake or castella to name a few.
Taking inspiration from these foods and drinks, the Japanese company “Cheerio” which specializes in making carbonated drinks, recently launched a new “Taiwan Castella Soda,” turning a desert into an even sweeter drink.
According to foreign media entabe.com, the latest release will be pre-sold at Lawson and Lawson Store 100, a Japanese convenience store chain.
Starting Sep. 16, fans of the Taiwanese dessert can also purchase the carbonated drinks at Cheerio vending machines in Chubu, Kansai, and Okinawa, the news media reported.
According to its promotional ad, upon opening the bottle cap, customers will immediately smell the tasty aroma of eggs that rises from castella cakes when they are baked.
“The soft and fluffy feeling you get when you take a bite is expressed by the gently popping of the drink,” Cheerio’s Instagram page reads.
Though no official price has been listed on the Cheerio official Instagram page, Japan Haul, an online marketplace, has the new drinks in stock, priced at US$4.54 (around NT$125).
