Snacks and drinks from Konbinis (7-11, Family Mart, Lawson) – Part 1

I’ll explain more about Konbinis (convenience stores) in another post, but this is more of a dump for all my small but memorable moments and purchases from 7-11, Family Mart, Lawson, Mini-Stop, Sun-K-us, and all those convenience store chains across Japan. Konbini is bae. One love.

Suntory has these fruit flavored beers called Horoyoi with only 3% alcohol, so it’s like a carbonated fruit beverage with the bitterness of beer. This was a red-grape flavored drink, and the drink was purple. It was cloyingly sweet, so it was not my favorite.

The one above is from 7-11, I can tell from the packaging. This was a corn-mayo bread, and the mayo was artery-cloggingly heavy. Do not recommend.
