Lifeguard: Bionic Energy Drink from Cheerio Japan
Lifeguard Drink from Cheerio
The “超生命体飲料” or bionic beverage Lifeguard was debuted in 1986 and has since been a favorite drink of the youth.
This was the case among friends of mine, and we used to play survival games in the wood with the camouflaged drinks.
Cheerio Lifeguard is a carbonated bionic energy drink with a slight fizz.
What makes it different from Oronamin C and Dekavita C is the refreshing mixed fruit flavor that is favored by children and the rich nutritional value made up of 7 vitamins, 7 amino acids, honey, and royal jelly.
As with Oronamin C and Dekavita C energy drinks, the 500ml-bottled Lifeguard drink is available at convenience stores, priced at 150 yen (about 1.3 USD) or so.
