REVIEW: Strange Yet Delicious Sparkling Strawberry Yogurt & Tapioca Drink with Adorable Very Very Minnie Souvenir Coaster at Tokyo Disneyland
Nostalgia is a huge driver of Disney Parks merchandise worldwide right now. So much so that this winter’s special event at Tokyo Disneyland celebrates past entertainment at Tokyo Disney Resort. Very Very Minnie is on January 10 – March 19, and there’s tons of food to explore. So let’s go!
I know what you’re thinking already – “Sparkling strawberry yogurt drink? That sounds revolting.” And in most cases, you’d probably be right. But being that this is Tokyo Disney Resort, home of weirdly delicious drinks like popcorn soda and hot strawberry matcha, we found ourselves pleasantly surprised at how this tasted. So let’s take a closer look at the Sparkling Strawberry Yogurt & Tapioca Drink (and its adorable souvenir coaster) and tell you why we thought it was good!
This is probably the first specialty drink we’ve had that doesn’t come at least partially mixed together. The drink base, as always, is Kirin Lemon. Under is strawberry tapioca, strawberry sauce, and a nice blob of yogurt on the bottom. In order to get that satisfying pinkish color, you must stir vigorously.
Once mixed, it’s ready for drinking. If you dare, at least. The ingredients may lead to hesitance, but I promise you it’s worth it.
How exactly would I describe it? It’s literally like drinking liquid yogurt. Sparkling liquid yogurt. But in a good way, somehow? We actually really enjoyed this drink, despite its strange combination of ingredients! Plus the strawberry-flavor tapioca added a nice tart flavor to the drink. Seriously, we highly recommend giving this drink a shot. Just try and get past the weird factor.
Souvenir Coaster – +¥500 ($4.59)
If you love Very Very Minnie, you can add this special drink coaster to your beverage for an extra ¥500 charge. Featuring a Minnie silhouette complete with special event-themed bow, this coaster is a lovely souvenir of this special one-time only event! It’s primarily made of rubber and plastic.
All in all, we recommend visiting Tokyo Disneyland and giving this drink a try. We’re pretty sure you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the taste. Plus that coaster just seals the deal, don’t you think? If you feel adventurous, come out to Captain Hook’s Galley, Boiler Room Bites, or Huey, Dewey, & Louie’s Good Time Cafe through March 19th. I doubt you’ll be disappointed!
