Chill Out: Japan’s First Relaxation Drink backed by Coca-Cola
Recently, at a vending machine outside, I came across Japan’s first relaxation drink, Chill Out.
The beverage became a popular topic in Japan a while ago instead of the energy drink fad.
I knew about it by reading an online news article and had wanted to try it someday.
So when I found the canned drink there, I instantly decided to buy it.
Chill Out Relaxation Drink
The Japanese relaxation drink Chill Out is from Endian, an Osaka-based company backed by I-ne and Coca-Cola Japan.
The product comes in two versions, 185 ml (Price: 200 yen) and 250 ml (Price: 250 yen) cans.
Chill Out is a carbonated soft drink with a citrus-like unique flavor formulated by AI.
The beverage has the right amount of fizz and is easy to drink for me. It tastes pretty good.
Based on the official site,
this soda drink contains 37 mg GABA, 129.5 mg L-theanine, and hemp seed and hop extracts (per 185 ml).
Those components help you relax and relieve stress.
This beverage is free from caffeine, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, and colors.
For your information, here are the specific ingredients and nutrition facts of the Chill Out drink.
|High fructose corn syrup, Grape juice, Orange juice, Hemp seed extract, GABA, Hop extract, Carbonic acid, Acidifier, Theanine, Vitamin C|

I’m unsure whether the Chill Out drink helped me relax because I’m almost always stress-free.
However, if you have a chance, I think the beverage is worth a try at least once.
