Kyushuhok Goyaman Drink
190 mL can
Goyaman is a spoof superhero character created for a Japanese comedy TV show. The character is supposed to be an Okinawan melon, so I'm assuming that is the type of bitter melon used in this drink. He certainly does look a little bitter, or at least regretful, in his expression.
This drink has a strong vegetable smell of celery or stale Cheerios. But the taste is sweet, with a twist of lemon. It doesn't have any carbonation, but instead it is thick, a bit gooey, like cucumber juice, or an aloe drink.
After a while the slight sour flavor and vegetabley smell is getting to me. Its a bit like a white gourd drink, but its better. The lemon is a good addition. Just a little bit.
Water, glucose, bitter melon, lemon juice, citric acid.
