Strange Juices (変なジュース Henna Jusu?) is the name given by the Toaru Kagaku no Railgun anime staff to refer to the bizarre drinks that are sold by vending machines, such as A Certain Vending Machine, in Academy City in the anime adaptations. A few from the original light novel are mentioned, and are later incorporated into the anime.
The labels are shown in the Toaru Project website. As part of Kamachi Kazuma's 10 year anniversary celebration, the Coconut Cider beverage was later made into a real drink for purchase in vending machines in Tachikawa, Tokyo, Japan since April 29th, 2014. The price of beverage is 130 Yen.
In the original light novel, after Misaka Mikoto shocks a vending machine and procures several cans of strange beverages from it, the narration then explains the reasoning behind it. Academy City is also an "Experiment City," with many universities and research laboratories send out test models of their products to the public, like the beverages. These models apparently appear on the streets, overflowing with it, making the beverages sold in the vending machines and those in convenience stores different, though the students still pay the same amount.
