Get ready for this, Japan Crate family!
This month we selected four of the craziest Japanese gums we could find!

Ramune is sold at summer festivals in Japan and is a traditional symbol of summer!

This gum will show you how you chew–the parts of your mouth that you use the most will be the darkest!
