Trying something new today. This is a cherry blossom green grape drink from GS25. Tastes pretty good and I kind of like the texture of it...it has little jellys inside. #tryingsomethingnew #drink #gs25 #gs25편의점 #korea #southkorea #cherryblossoms #cherryblossomdrink #greengrape #yum #springtime #springinkorea #seasonalitem #limitededition #🌸
This is a sweet grapeade with artificial green grape flavour in addition to cherry blossom. An extra lovely bonus is that it has chewy gummies in it too!
