It is delicious, but don't forget, it does have lots of sugar (basically poison). So, enjoy in moderation.

Never ever have I heard or used the word 'delicious' to describe a drink.  Really. 

'Handsome' and 'delicious' are two words that have lost all meaning to me in Korea.

It is not that unusual...

To be fair and not wanting to start a British English/American English flame war, that is an American website, written by someone called Cheung.  I might allow mango lassi as that is more substantial as a drink, more like a milkshake. But I would think for something less viscous like Pocari Sweat, you don't use the 'd' word.

I wouldn't exclaim loudly that Pocari Sweat is delicious while drinking it but I think in the context of the above convo it's use was appropriate.

Today, for the first time I am winging a class with material downloaded form waygook about 15 minutes ago. This feels like a huge accomplishment for an OCD type like myself. I am just too exhausted and really just want to focus on the fact that I am getting pizza for supper.

I am also truly excited that it is a long weekend. I intend for one of those days to be a proper pyjama day. Yay!!!

That was just the first site for my google search "delicious drinks".  I can't support the writer's opinions on several of those, but most of them are better than Pocari Sweat, IMHO.

How would a British person describe a drink they liked without using "delicious"?

I was trying to stay awake for exams, this was something like my 3rd all-nighter, and I was at an late-night cafe where they served them. I'd already taken a caffeine pill right before drinking this thing.

I probably could have vibrated through walls after.

Didn't taste that bad. It was almost like liquid skittles.

Today's lunch was a comical display of carbs:

Rice
Noodles
Potato soup

It was the breaking point I needed. Starting October, I'm no longer subjecting myself to this garbage. Gonna go shopping for a lunchbox after school today.  8)

'That was ace'
'Just what the doctor ordered'
'That hit the spot'
'Hmmm, that had subtle ovetones of birch and mulberry whilst stilling maintaining a fresh palate for myself'

Twice this week there have been pigeons walking down the school hallways.
I'm just sitting at my desk, minding my own business when I happen to look out the door into the hallway only to see a pigeon staring directly at me.  So I chased it away.

Hangeul Day is on a Sunday so it doesn't count at my school, BUT the 10th of October is the school's birthday so I get 2 three day weekends!  :smiley:

It's been a nice, relatively boring sports day. I did my usual of holding the finish line like a champ for races.

Now, I have an insufferable choice. Leave early to go to hwesik or wait until the normal time and then go home.

I want to have my cake AND eat it.

Why is the world so cruel.

Sometimes hwesik lasts much later than your normal leaving time would be. I guess it depends on if you enjoy hwesik at all.
