Pineapple in a Can

Tokyo konbinis (convenience stores) are currently selling a Pineapple drink by Suntory called Gokuri.


Drinks are typically sold in 500 ml plastic bottles.  Aluminum bottles (with are screw top cap) are not common.  Japanese beer is typically sold in aluminum cans (not aluminum bottles).

Anyway, since Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits, I had to try this new drink.  It sells for 157 yen ($1.50), about 10 yen (10 cents) more expensive than regular drinks – not sure if this is due to the aluminum bottle.  Though it does have a pineapple taste, I really didn’t like it so I don’t think I will buy this again.
