Even the coke is festive…
At this point I have accepted the inevitably of Christmas in Japan and I decided to accept it. So let’s start with the reason for red being a Christmas colour: coca cola.
Coke is extremely well known (slight understatement) and is available everywhere including in North Korea, for the elite only of course.
Nevertheless the junk food giants coke and McDonald’s have decided to team up. For the small price of ¥85 you get a coke and either a free hamburger or a small fries.
Quick note as a former McDonald’s worker, a hamburger is a cheeseburger without the cheese, there is no difference in the meat–its still a 10:1 patty.
But the bottle comes with a delightful party trick:
That’s right, the label turns into a ribbon.
On the bright side, everything is recyclable and the coke zero was coke zero- exactly the same as the UK.
Thank you for reading and happy exploring
