Sapporo Otoko Ume Sour


Popular beer brewer Sapporo brings us this "manly" plum drink for Halloween called "Otoko Ume Sour". During ancient times eating a plum was believed to ward off evil. If you prefer to be one of the monsters instead, Sapporo has made a fun application to turn your photo into a traditional Japanese demon here.

The inside is still the traditional chocolate filling, but here's an editor's tip to make this snack more appropriate for the season.
