Sometimes you just need a melon.
Here is an example of a time you might need a melon:
You’re hungry, and thirsty, and want to eat a melon.
That’s the appropriate time. For the rest of the time- let’s enjoy Melon Cream Soda!
Melon Cream Soda.
Melon soda is very popular here in Japan. For long years I was loathe to try it because I’ve always had something of a vendetta against melons. They’ve blocked my attempts to accomplish wondrous feats on several occasions. Plus I don’t much like the taste of them.
Finally when I was persuaded to try melon soda- I found that it didn’t taste anything remotely like melons. What did it taste like? I’d be hard-pressed to say. Like a soda, really, with some kind of flavor. Not mellony.

Take the next step, and you’re putting a scoop of ice cream into your melon soda and having a cream soda. Yum. I’ve always enjoyed this, often imbibing it at family restaurants such as Royal Host and Jonathon’s.
In a glass!
Now though came the test- can you distill delicious cream soda made with fresh melons, soda water, and ice cream into a bottle?
This is the bottle receptacle.
This is the glass- filled!
The answer to this question is- surprisingly yes. It tastes really quite good. It has the thick cloudiness of molten floating ice cream, mixed with the soda/melon taste, and comes out very well.
3 thumbs up!
