Lotte Chilsung Cider

500 mL bottle

History

Chilsung Cider was the first soft drink produced in Korea. In 1950 the Dongabang Beverage partnership was formed in order to create and sell soft drinks in a rapidly modernizing country. The Lotte conglomerate (which began as a candy manufacturer in 1948) purchased Chilsung Hanmi in 1974 creating the Lotte Chilsung Beverage Co. The company now markets many other soft drinks such as Milkis and 2% DBH, canned coffees, juices, bottled water and even liquor but Chilsung Cider is still quite popular.

Review

Mmm. A lemony spritzer. I'm not sure why they translated the name of this drink as "cider", its really just a lemon-lime soda. It tastes a lot like a Sprite or 7up but with a syrupy aspect to it. It has a light soda water sour zing, with sugary syrupy lemon lime following behind.

I like the refreshing lemon & lime flavors, but this is just too syrupy to be a favorite.
