Lion Soda Kids Candy - Asian Food Market: Cherry Hill, NJ

Lion Soda Kids Candy - Asian Food Market: Cherry Hill, NJ
Because this candy has 6 flavors, and such amazing packaging, I am splitting it up into multiple reviews.
This review will focus on the aesthetics.
You’re not supposed to judge a book by it’s cover, but sometimes I buy things just because of the packaging.  When I saw this on the shelf, I just had to photograph it. There is so much going on! There are colorful flavor-sentai, bold text, and bright foiled backgrounds. I love all of the colors! Although the design is very busy, I would love to have this blown up as a pop-art piece.

There are 6 soda flavors:
  • Orange (orange) 
  • Grape (red-violet)
  • Melon (green)
  • Ramune (blue)
  • Cola (brown)
  • Lemon (yellow)
Each flavor has it’s own sentai mascot, similar to a Super Sentai or Power Ranger, with an outfit that represents that candy’s flavor. I think this is adorable! Plus, the actual candies are shaped like the mascot as well.
Something about this packaging that I really like is that each individual wrapper has a question and answer on it. Sadly, I can’t read it! Such a pity! (I’ll be posting more photos of the questions and answers later this week, and if anyone can translate them I’d be very grateful.)
This packaging is colorful, adorable, and I love it! I hope the candy inside tastes just as good as it looks.
