Strangely named sports drink ‘POCARI SWEAT’

In summer, we need to supplement the water lost by perspiration.  ‘POCARI SWEAT’ is a long selling sports drink in Japan.  It says it is close to human body fluid.  That’s why the beverage has the name including ‘sweat’.  ‘Pocari’ is not Japanese.  No one knows the meaning of ‘pocari’.  But most Japanese believe that the name ‘POCARI SWEAT’ must have a cool meaning in English!

Of course, it doesn’t smell bad.  It tastes like grape fruit juice.  I like it.  This maker is also selling ‘Calorie mate’.
