Happy Drink! ~Korea

This drink will make you happy - or at least it's made by Hapi.

Mandarin Orange Float Drink - the word "float" made me think of something creamy and yummy like an orange Creamsicle - one of my favorite summer treats as a kid. It was quite exciting when we'd hear the ding-a-ling-ling of the Dickey-Dee ice-cream man/boy/girl. He would ride around on a bicycle with a freezer attached to it - no ice-cream truck, rather an ice-cream bicycle. If we had some extra money from our paper routes or could scrounge around the house for some money before the ice-cream boy was gone, we'd have ourselves a little treat.

Well the Hapi "float" didn't make me very happy. It looked like and tasted like the liquid in a can of mandarin oranges. "With it's own pulp" the can proclaims - so you don't have to worry about it being the pulp from another orange. It was pretty lame. It was clear with orange bits in it. It even had the funny smell that canned mandarin oranges have.

Dd - "Yum - tastes like a bunch of canned oranges mashed up."

Ds - "Good and bad at the same time."

The little can cost about $1.00 and is a product of Korea.

The ingredients are: water, Mandarin orange pulp, Mandarin orange juice, sugar, orange essence as flavoring and citric acid.

Oh yeah, that made my mouth water, but not in a good way!
