    When I last went to an asian grocery store my friend and I bought weird, imported soft drinks, hers was wintermelon and it apparently tasted “like old ladies’ socks” according to her, while my mango one was all sweet… weirdo drinks.
    That aside, your reaction in the last panel is what I looked like after the first time I had Vimto, haha.

    And Zomink: Don Xuan… X is pronounched kind of like ch in chinese, if I’m not mistaken, so likely it’s not far from it in Vietnamese either (if it is, this fails)… therefore, Don Juan Zentrum!!! I can understand how you were “seduced” by it XD

      They usually contain obscure ingredients as well! And sometimes I think; “How can you make a flavoured drink out of THAT?”
      And yeah, Vimto is… artificial. I got used to it though.

    Oh no! Boo gross genmai cha! I hear you about Asian supermarkets feeling homey…there’s a great big Vietnamese warehouse/mall thing out west in Berlin called Don Xuan Zentrum and it makes me feel right at home, even if I’m not Vietnamese…and they have the BEST Vietnamese food in the city! Mmm Asian food.

      Hurray for (freshly made and chilled) genmai cha! >:3
      Those Asian supermarkets are dangerous… they make me want to buy EVERYTHING I see… sadly we’ve only got the tiny crowded ones here.
