Found some Engrish!

Taking a break at work today, I decided that rather than get a 20 oz. drink from the vending machine for $1.25, I'd go to the Korean market that's in the same shopping center to get something. I was hoping to find this really yummy apple and umi drink I had last time (whatever an umi is), but they didn't have it. Eventually, I decided just to get a bottle of this Korean sport drink for 99 cents.

I noticed, on the small sticker of English ingredients which they slap on for U.S. sale, that the different kinds all had "fruit cloudy" or "pineapple cloudy" etc. -- not sure what a "cloudy" is supposed to be.

It wasn't until I was back in the break room at work that I noticed the real gem of Engrish on the label. Take a look at the serving size:
