When it comes to Vitamin drinks Vita 500 (비타 500) is the market leader. It’s names relates to the amount of Vitamin-C it contains and as you might expect it tastes like a sugary/medicinal mix. It normally costs less than ₩1000 ($1) and can be found at basically any supermarket, mart or convenience store.

Teehee this drink always conjures up memories of Ahjussis getting drunk on SoMaek and drinking the Vitamin drink the next morning. Evidence of which is always present at the many corners and in many alleys of Seoul, on buses and trains, in overflowing GS25 trashbins, and everywhere else a person could imagine littering.
I can’t stand the taste of it haha, but many of my Korean AND foreign friends drink it. I prefer the IV treatment that’s becoming popular amongst the Elite haha Just kidding!
Cool idea for a post. 🙂
Yum Yum! Occasionally I blend this drink with ice to make a tasty slushie. Give it a try 😉
