Confectionary chain Fujiya Co. has added a little pop to their macaron selection with the introduction of a Sparkling Macaron set (¥500) featuring three soda-flavored sweets.

The trio of cola, ramune (soda) and lemon squash flavors come with a creamy center of crackling candies to replicate the fizziness of a carbonated beverage.

The cola and lemon varieties shine, while the ramune offering comes off as a bit strange when made so sweet.

Available nationwide at any Fujiya store or restaurant, the sparkling macarons offer up a nice twist on an ubiquitous treat.
