Thirsty? Naruto Ramune Now Available in USA/Canada

Posted on June 7, 2014

Thirsty? Have a drink the Hero of the Hidden Leaf would be proud of! In the USA and Canada, select Asian grocery stores and now offering Naruto ramune! Not ramen, the food Naruto loves to eat, but ramune! What is ramune you ask? It’s a lemon-lime carbonated soft drink originating from the great country of Japan.


Ramune bottles have a unique design, often called Codd-neck bottles, and are sealed with a marble. To open the bottle, the marble has to be pushed inward toward the neck of the bottle using a provided tool where the marble then rattles around while drinking. The Naruto-branded raumune is a recently released item approved by North American licensor Viz Media, but you can see a video of a Naruto cosplayer from almost 7 years ago in 2007 open a regular bottle of ramune. The struggle is real!

Naruto ramune will be available for a limited time this summer. Below is a full list of retailers currently offering the drink around the USA and Canada!
