Lotte Suika Bar: Must-Try Japanese Popsicles Vol.2

It is August, and we are halfway through the summer. But the heat is still fierce, plus heavy rain is now hitting Niigata, where I live.

Nonetheless, when I stopped by a 7-Eleven today, I felt like a popsicle and grabbed one named Suika Bar (スイカバー: meaning Watermelon Bar) from Lotte.

Suika Bar (Price: 110 yen) is a watermelon-flavored ice pop summer treat almost as well known as Akagi Nyugyo’s Garigari Kun and meets my criteria of a must-try Japanese popsicle.

Lotte Suika Bar Watermelon Flavor Popsicle

Lotte started to sell the frozen snack in 1986, and now, it has become a favorite summer refreshment for many people in Japan.

As its name suggests, Lotte Suika Bar has the shape and colors of a watermelon slice. It contains 5 percent watermelon juice and deliciously recreates the fruit’s taste and texture.

The black things imitating seeds are chocolate puffs, which go a long way in the popsicle, giving the watermelon flavor a good accent.
