February 2021 is fast approaching its turn.
It is still cold, but according to the calendar, the first day of spring has passed and the footsteps of spring can be heard.
Pollen has started to fly and hay fever symptoms have started to appear, so I feel like it is spring.
And with the change of seasons comes the season of limited-edition energy drink flavors!
RAIZIN SAKURA", which was recently introduced on Saiga NAK and is perfect for spring, went on sale on February 9, 2021 (Tuesday ), and I would like to review it right away!
A sweet finish with a cherry blossom aroma
First, let's take a look at the "RAIZIN SAKURA" label design.
The simple yet eye-catching design is familiar to "RAIZIN", with a design of cherry blossom petals.
The color gradation from dark pink to light pink is reminiscent of a row of cherry trees.
I thought I had seen this color somewhere in the editorial office, but it is the same shade as Yadon (No.079), which sometimes appears on Saiga NAK' Twitter (@saiganak.com ).
When I poured it into a glass, it was even more pink than I expected! Even the bubbles are pink.
The color of the drink is more like a berry beverage than a cherry blossom, although the photo was taken at night.
However, the aroma and taste are truly SAKURA flavors. It has an aroma that reminds me of spring.
The sweetness is stronger than expected, and the carbonation is weak, making it a good choice for people who don't like energy drinks.
When it comes to energy drinks, it is important to know the ingredients.
The ingredients list on the label shows the following per 100ml
- Energy 0 kcal
- Protein 0g
- 0 g fat
- 1.9 g carbohydrates
- Salt equivalent 0.053g
- Caffeine 0mg
The following is a list of the most popular products in the world.
The ingredients list is unique to RAIZIN's triple-zero ingredients: 0 caffeine, 0 kilocalories, and 0 sugar, which sets it apart from other energy drinks.
RAIZIN's signature enextra is 1035 mg of galangal extract and 150 mg of enextra equivalent per 245 ml bottle.
I put a cherry blossom branch (artificial flower) in "RAIZIN SAKURA".
I did it on the spur of the moment, but it turned out to be an unexpectedly good match.
The cherry blossoms and RAIZIN complement each other.
I put together the " PlayStation Vita Pink/Black ", " BlackBerry Q5 ", " Frienbr Room & Fabric Mist Cherry Blossom Fragrance " and other pink and cherry blossom related items that were in the editorial office. I put them all together.
It is a great picture, isn't it? It feels like spring has already arrived.
Let's feel spring one step ahead!
RAIZIN SAKURA" is now on sale at convenience stores, supermarkets, and drugstores nationwide! The suggested retail price is 190 yen (excluding tax ).
It is a limited time offer and will be discontinued as soon as it is gone, so be sure to give it a try when you find it!
The temperature will warm up soon and the cherry blossom season will arrive.
Why don't you try "RAIZIN SAKURA" and feel the spring one step ahead?
