Tofu Cute Blog Ranks: Ramune
Tofu Cute Blog Ranks: Ramune

22nd February 2022 • Respect my beverage opinions. • by Adam
Respect my beverage opinions.
Last week on the Tofu Cute Blog, we discussed the life-affirming wonder of cool vending machines. I did this mostly because I was reminded of them by the large amount of new beverages we had in stock. If you weren’t already aware, we have quite a lot of new types of ramune, in addition to other unique drinks.

This week as a change of pace from the educational streak of blogs we’ve had, I thought it’d be fun to share my opinions on something for a change. To start with, I thought it’d be fun to ‘definitively’ rank all of our flavours of Ramune soda, using the modern internet way of doing it: a TIER list.

If you don’t already know, Tier lists are simple ways of organising your opinions about the ranking of a group of things. It’s the trendy way to tell people why they’re wrong about something. Generally speaking, you take a set of images and organise them into groups based on your preference, with S tier being the highest, and the lowest tiers being anywhere between D and F. There’s useful websites like TierMaker that allow you to import images and make your own tier list images easily, but I thought for the Tofu Cute Blog, it really needed just a bit more pink, so I made my own template.

Below the tier list, I’ve explained my picks in great detail: I promise my reasoning makes perfect sense.
Now that you’ve had time to absorb the truth in image form, let me explain. I’ll go tier by tier, starting at the bottom.

D Tier - ‘Not For Me’
The only ramune I’ve placed in D tier is yoghurt ramune, which I’ll concede is not bad, but rather, just ‘not for me’. In this context, that’s what the D tier means. I’ve only had this drink once, so it’s possible that I’m misjudging it. I think if you like yoghurt flavours, you might very well love this one, though!

C Tier - ‘Decent’
These are ramune flavours that I enjoy, but don’t do as much to stand out to me compared to tiers B to S. These are solidly good flavours. Arguably some of the classics are included in this tier.

Orange ramune is nice; it reminds me a bit too much of other orange sodas and it’s not really my favourite flavour. Strawberry is similar, but I like it a bit more: the flavour comes across as a bit too sweet, though.

Sakura ramune is an interesting experiment that I almost put in B tier, but I think its seasonal vibe and floral taste makes it hard to recommend outside of the summer. Setouchi melon is one of the few flavours from the most recent set that I’ve tried - I like it a lot, although not as much as standard melon soda, as you’ll see from the rest of the list!

B Tier - ‘Good’
B Tier ramune includes all of the beverages that offer either a more unique taste experience than C tier, in addition to some that are still pretty standard flavours but ultimately well-executed. Cola ramune is one such example of a ramune that’s quite generic but executed well. Lychee on the other hand represents one of the more unique tastes of this category.

When it comes to ‘original’ and ‘matcha’ ramune, however, these get a spot in the coveted B tier because there’s simply nothing else quite like them. I’m not aware of any other matcha sodas outside of this one (if they exist, please let me know) and the ‘original’ ramune experience still remains largely unchallenged. There’s nothing quite like the refreshment of a chilled original ramune: slightly lemony, very bubbly and highly satisfying.

A Tier - ‘Excellent’
Of course, the only thing better than good ramune is excellent ramune - we’re talking about the bottles that deliver the best-in-class when it comes to flavour, offering something that the others can’t. Watermelon ramune is one of the better watermelon sodas I’ve ever had, offering a taste that’s not too sour and not too light: the perfect balance. The blueberry flavour is equally well-crafted: it’s got the tangy edge of a blueberry candy mixed with the light sweetness of real blueberries. I also like just how blue in colour this drink is.

The white peach and momiji manju flavours are fairly new, but both represent really strong versions of their respective flavours. I’ve gone on record as a fan of peach flavoured things before, and I think this drink absolutely nails the taste of the fruit. As for the momiji manju flavour, this one took me by surprise! I didn’t think I’d enjoy it, but I really did: it offers that rich, earthy flavour from the traditional Japanese confection in soda form!

S Tier - ‘Top Tier’
These two ramune flavours are my favourite in the soda pantheon. I know to some these might even seem like boring picks for my S tier, but this is my list! Melon soda is an absolute all-timer when it comes to rare soda flavours. I’ll always remember when I had my first sip of melon soda, but melon ramune really represents the best of the type. It has a juicy and invigorating taste that you just can’t get elsewhere.

Furthermore, I absolutely love yuzu flavours, so this is my number one ramune. As a citrus from Japan, it feels like the perfect flavour choice and it fits excellently with the light, bubbly nature of the drink. It’s reliably incredible; a drink that never fails to make me happy.

That’s my ranking of ramune - but what do you think? Feel free to let us know on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, and be sure to come back for more rankings and other investigations into kawaii culture here on the Tofu Cute blog!
