Building on Japan’s obsession with snacks, Coca-Cola Japan has now introduced a new seasonal option for its savory soup line. Dubbed “Go:Good,” the interesting range is available in vending machines with warming functions.
Go:Good already offers Corn Potage, Shrimp Bisque and Minestrone Soup options in small aluminum cans that are served piping hot when dispensed from machines. But just as temperatures begin to drop, the Japanese division of Coca-Cola company is now introducing Dashi for the Fall 2020 season.
Dashi is a rich traditional Japanese broth made by heating water with kombu kelp and kezurikatsuo (shavings of katsuobushi – preserved, fermented skipjack tuna or bonito) to near boiling and straining the liquid. Enjoyed on its own or as a base for other soups (like miso soup), the resultant liquid is a synergy of umami thanks to its especially high levels of sodium inosinate and glutamic acids.
Priced at ¥130 JPY (approximately $1.23 USD), Coca Cola’s Dashi option from its Go:Good line is available now in vending machines across Japan. Those interested stateside should look out for imports at local markets.
