Fujiya’s Classic Canned Lemon Squash Soda Drink
From the same vending machine where I got the Fujiya Nectar Peach Juice that I introduced the other day, this night I bought another classic canned drink also from Fujiya called “Fujiya Lemon Squash (不二家 レモンスカッシュ )” for 100 yen (about 1 USD).
Fujiya Lemon Squash Soda
As you can see from the front part where the product name is printed, Fujiya Lemon Squash was first introduced in 1975, and this year (2020) is the 45th anniversary of the canned beverage.
The classical black can design with white polka dots has hardly changed since I was small, but thanks to that, many Japanese people can recognize the canned drink at first glance.
As the white polka dots imply, this can contains lemon squash soda with about 10 percent actual lemon juice. The beverage is not overly sweet and has a mildly acidic refreshing flavor that both children and adults can like.
As a matter of fact, the Fujiya Lemon Squash is one of the most famous canned soft drinks in Japan and has been a long-time favorite of many people.
Where to Buy
The canned drink Fujiya Lemon Squash can be seen sold in vending machines and supermarkets, but I can rarely find it in convenience stores.

Lastly, for those who are curious about the ingredients and nutritional values, here are the lists.
According to that, Fujiya Lemon Squash soda consists of sugars (high fructose corn syrup, sugar), lemon juice, lemon pulp, carbonic acid, flavoring, vitamin C, and hesperidin.
