Why is there a marble in Ramune?
Ever wondered why there is a marble inside a bottle of Ramune? The design of Ramune bottles is what makes it unique. The bottles, made of glass, have a codd neck and the purpose of the marble is to hold in the carbonation. In the olden days, there were no other alternatives to keep your drink fizzy.
