As a follow up from my Candysan-loot blog BLOG #18658 and my previous food/candy review BLOG #18923 is here...a drinks review!

Today I'll talk about the Crayon Shin Chan Fake Beer Namaiki (Cheeky) Drink! The main reason why I was interested in this set, is because it comes with a free re-usable cup!

This is merchandise from the Crayon Shin Chan series. For the people not familiar with it: it's a comedy manga and anime about the 5-year old boy called Shinnosuke. Shinnosuke has (almost) no manners and is not your typical 5-year old! His parents have his hands full with him and although I personally feel bad for his parents, the scenarios are hilarious! This series is not everyone's type of humor, but if you're into some more dark comedy and/or like to laugh at simple jokes about underwear, butts and pretty ladies, this series is something for you!

On the packaging are the instructions to make Shin's cheeky drink! It's pretty simple looking at it: put water in the cup until the line, add the powder, wait a bit and then add the ice cubes. What could go wrong?

I opened the package and...

...ta-dah! The cup! It is a lot higher quality than I exptected! The cup is made from a very thick plastic and the print is high quality too! These are all the possible cup designs:

Not my picture, official picture from manufacturer Heart.

I was actually hoping on getting the one with the full Nohara family, because that one is a parody of the Heinken-logo (a Dutch beer brand), but this cup is neat too! I added it to the database for the people that would like more information about it or put it on their wish/owned-list: ITEM #275259

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-NCyNX3NEVMY/VJbPpLM3FzI/AAAAAAAAChI/58z2oIOEpOo/s640/IMG_3189.JPG

The cup shows multiple measuring lines (50, 100 and 150 mililiters), so it can also be used as a small measuring cup for cooking in general!

The drink itself comes in this small bag that has almost the same artwork as the packaging and the cup.

The pictures next up will be a bit blurry, because I had to move to the kitchen quickly. I was warned beforehand of the drink being spilled easily and the progress of the drink "being made" going very quick!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-DghSbxCEtXM/VJbPqrmZ_6I/AAAAAAAAChg/ihr-OURzdhg/s640/IMG_3194.JPG

After adding the powder it started foaming like crazy!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-9ZvC3rURPok/VJbPrAEbAXI/AAAAAAAACho/WcrWDtgpN1c/s640/IMG_3195.JPG

Quickly afterwards the foam started dripping over the edge too, luckily I thought of putting a saucer underneath the cup!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-QtFyPmN3FbM/VJbPrqku6EI/AAAAAAAACh0/HjgXAcOWJPQ/s640/IMG_3196.JPG

After about a minute the foaming completely stopped, then within a minute after that the foam almost completely disappeared, resulting in only this left:

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-W2rcx5M9B94/VJbPslZaxnI/AAAAAAAACiA/HWBo_Z_wuAs/s640/IMG_3198.JPG

I was slightly disappointed that the foam wasn't staying on the drink for a bit longer, but the reaction of the drink was a lot like soda and foam on there disappears a lot quicker too (especially compared to beer)!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-D78SOKJgdng/VJbPsJDbB1I/AAAAAAAACh4/qIbB4nzvA6M/s640/IMG_3197.JPG

Especially when hold in the sunlight, the bubbles and color make it look a lot like beer! Cheeky Shin Chan!

Now it was time to taste the drink! Kanpai!

The taste

Oh man, it was super-duper-sweet! It hurt my teeth a little! The taste immediately reminded me of candy my grandmother used to give me as a kid, I don't know if it's known anywhere else:

These are sticks that you can dip in powder and then you lick it off (like a lollipop with some flavored powder). This drink tastes like the orange powder in there, but now as a liquid!

The taste itself is okay, I can imagine kids liking it, but for me it's just too sweet! I don't regret buying the drink at all though, since I really love the glass/measuring cup!

Finish

I recommend this drink to every Crayon Shin Chan fan, because for the small amount of 300 yen you can buy this set. Just to own the re-usable cup it's already worth that money in my opinion! If people are interested in buying, they can do so here: www.candysan.co... If you plan on buying there, let me know! I still have discount-coupons here that I can hand out (after receiving your e-mailadress + full name in PM) to people interested in buying from that shop!

My next blog post can maybe take a while to write up. It's one about how I combined my figure- and cosplay- hobbies with a recent project of mine. I hope you guys are looking forward to it and thanks for reading this short drink review!

Chloe-tsundere (3 anos atrás) #3035864Theyre sold out now T_T well i just wait for a new batch with more interesting designs, as i buy it for the cups mainly xD just like you did

I'm afraid that at one point they will run out of interesting beer logo's to parody. xD

I still love this cup so much. The quality of both the material and the print is incredibly high for the price!

Maakie (3 anos atrás) #3035747Oh, thanks for letting me know! Those new designs are indeed a lot less interesting. :/ I guess it will be hard to find the old designs again, considering the packages all have an expiration date so the old stock must have been thrown out by most of the sellers by now. So then you would have to hunt secondhand for the older design cups (without the drink), I'm afraid!

VioFitz (3 anos atrás) #2698470I'm looking for it locally here... If I'm out of options, asking you would likely be my last resort, I think.

No problem, good luck! :)

Maakie (3 anos atrás) #2673480Oh man, I can't even imagine being young in mind too. xD
Maybe you could ask a bit around locally and/or on local forums and see if others tried it out?

VioFitz (3 anos atrás) #2663748Hahaha, no problem with that...
Yup, that's why they call it "Bir Bintang", haha!
I wouldn't mind being physically young again but, I don't want my young thinking also back.
I see, that's pretty nice for you then, I might try too later. Thanks for your offer, if I'm interested I'll let you know.

Maakie (3 anos atrás) #2638318Ah, so sorry for asking! X_X Fizzy drinks are not worth it if they are that bad for your health! (Although in general it would be more healthy to completely skip them for everyone. ^^'' )
Ahhh, "star beer" sounds logical considering the logo of the brand, haha!
Haha, that would be nice indeed! Although I wouldn't want to be young again, haha!
I used to be very afraid to order food from outside the Netherlands too, but when I noticed on local forums quite a lot of people were doing it, I decided to try it myself and everything went pretty smoothly! The only thing I have to watch out for is foods that expire quickly, as shipping can be slow and items can be hold at costums for a long time. If you want to try out, just let me know!! :)
