Pocari Sweat

  • “Pocari Sweat” is one of the most popular sport drink in Japan.


    Many of us drink it during sport, and it is sold in most of the shops and vending machines.

    I think it’s something like “Gatorade” in foreign countries, but it has also a little sour taste in addition to sweet tastes.

    However, the sour taste never imply that Pocari’s sweat is contained.

    “Sweat” in “Pocari Sweat” means that the drink can replenish water lost by sweating.

    Also, I heard that “Pocari” has no meaning.

    I really like this drink “Pocari Sweat,” but I think that it will be shunned by the name in English-speaking countries.
