During the 1800’s, Commodore Perry introduced lemonade to Japan. The Japanese people loved it so much that it became an iconic symbol for Japanese soda. The Japanese mispronunciation of the word lemonade became Ramune. The flavors of Ramune started as lemon-based but over time evolved to become its own unique taste. Ramune candy takes the flavor and fizz of Japanese ramune soda and compacts it into hard candies that have two flavors per candy.
