One of the best things about living overseas is that you get different soft drinks. After 2-3 years Melody and I love green tea now...so much so, that when I was in Hawaii last year, I willingly paid $3.00 per bottle just to get some. I know, I know...it might be an addiction. Well, to that I say (in the words of an old drug rehab center commercial from when I was a kid),
"I don't have a problem...YOU have the problem!! Maybe it just walked out of your purse!"
But I digress...
My current favorite is a seasonal drink by Kirin, called Nuda. For some reason, you only see it during the summer time. Normal Nuda is basically soda water. But now, they've come out with Kirin Nuda Grapefruit and Hop flavor. It's great. So great that I've been stopping by one particular convenience store to buy 4 bottles at a time. They must think I'm nuts. Who puts grapefruit and hops together as a flavor? Where did that idea come from? Chalk it up to another one of the wonderful things about this country.
