Octopus Ball Soda


The Japanese love weird canned drinks and octopus balls, so it’s only natural that there would be an octopus ball soda. I’d just never seen one before now.

Octopus balls, formally called takoyaki, are these delicious dough-y balls you can pop in your mouth, often sold by street vendors on the corner of a street near a suburban train station or a street festival. It’s so popular that there’s even a Takoyaki Museum in Osaka.

  1. That’s just sort of weird, like those Jones Soda flavors. Gravy, turkey etc.
    I’m going to pass on this one.

  2. I was thinking that Japan isn’t the only one as Vagrant points out: the Jones Soda flavors. Although as behind the scenes footage from Hana Yori Dango 2 prooves – the Japanese think that the Jones Soda flavors are just as icky as we do. I laughed a lot as Matsumoto Jun and his fellow cast-mates were sentenced to drink the Green Pea and Turkey flavors!
