2. Milkis; $12


Netflix's To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before brought the popular Korean yogurt drink Yakult to the U.S. mainstream in 2018. If you want a fizzier, but no less authentic, option to try out, you should go for Milkis. Like the name suggests, the soda has a creamy quality to it, but in terms of flavor, think of it more like yogurt than milk. There are also different flavors to try, including strawberry, melon, and peach.

3. Crodino; $24


First produced in 1965, Crodino is an Italian drink marketed as a non-alcoholic apéritif (meaning it's traditionally served before a meal). Made of citrus, spices, and herbs, the aromatic drink can be enjoyed as a soda on its own, or you can use it to mix some homemade cocktails.

4. Ramune; $25


One of the most popular sodas in Japan, Ramune is a fizzy drink known for its uniquely shaped glass bottle and range of flavors, including melon, blueberry, and original, which is described as a cross between bubblegum and lemon-lime. It comes in a Codd bottle, which is an old-timey design invented by Hiram Codd in 1872 to keep carbonated drinks sealed with the help of a marble located at the top. In order to open the bottle, you have to push the marble down with a tiny device located in the cap.
