The comeback

Remember Mello Yello? Growing up I would rarely see it around and always considered it a Mountain Dew knockoff. In recent years I can't recall it being around in any of the places I've lived.

About a month or so ago, it started popping up at all the convenience stores in Japan. Just out of nowhere. Upon my return to the States, I noticed that it's also being sold in grocery stores here, too. Is Coca-Cola giving it another go?

I don't drink much soda, but I tried one a couple weeks ago and it was just as I remembered it: almost exactly the same as Mountain Dew. What are your thoughts on Mello Yello?

This post is an entry for the 2011 July Matsuri, hosted this month over at Nihongo Up.
