Another week, another Evangelion collaboration product. I swear, it seems like there is a new collaboration with Eva every single week. Not that I’m complaining, I absolutely love it, but I’m running out of space to put everything. This time the collaboration is a little more manageable, as it’s something that I consume almost on the daily, and that is Mt. RAINIER coffee. That’s right, the coffee that you see throughout convenience stores all over Japan is getting its own Evangelion collaboration.
Mt. RAINIER is a single serving coffee drink that you place the straw in the top of the packaging and consume the drink. They come in a variety of flavors and I would be remiss to say that they don’t rival many of the trendy coffee places that you can visit. The Evangelion collaboration is being aptly called Mt.RAINIERxEVANGELION and is exclusive to convenience stores throughout Japan. The collaboration will be featured on 3 of the company’s flavors with two designs each. The Mt.RAINIER Cafe Latte, Cafe Latte Espresso, and Cafe Latte Non-Sugar will play home to the collaboration line.
Each drink will have a different theme and feature art from the Evangelion anime series. There will be an EVA-00 version, EVA-02, EVA-01, NERV display, EVA-01 face, and a Typography version. Each of the drinks also has the NERV logo on top. If that’s not enough, there is also an instant win campaign that you can enter to win a LONGINUS Straw with a special A.T. Field top.
The Mt.RAINIERxEVANGELION collaboration drinks will be available from 15 December 2020 until 12 February 2021 at convenience stores nationwide. If you’re in Japan living or are one of the few countries that can travel here, it would be in your best interest to cop a few of these coffee specials.
