The Mellow Cola is an extremely high quality cola produced by the Salamander Sphinx, which Toriko was able to detect through smell. It is said by Melk that the Mellow Cola matures inside of it's body, and a cook book found by Komatsu and wall imprints state that its tears are the Cola, as the storage for the sugar in its body (similar to how Sea Turtles eject salt stored in their bodies through their tears when they lay eggs).
Various pain-inducing methods must be done in sequence to carbonate the sugary tears before they can be produced as Cola, such as thoroughly pounding every square inch of its body, cutting scales off of its back, and simultaneously pulling a feather from each wing. Once done so, the oxidized scum on the surface of the tear glands are released (even the scum is high quality cola), afterwards the true Mellow Cola is released, a quantity enough it is said no one person could drink it all, releasing enough Mellow Cola to cause a small flood.
The carbonation is described to feel like a firecracker and the year long fermented sugar is a hundred times sweeter then maple syrup. The carbonic acid is said to exceed both soda water and champagne combined and the bubbles released from the Mellow Cola is said to remain in the air for a year. Mellow Cola is also shown to be a powerful energy source, completely reviving all the cells in the body and completely restoring Toriko and Zebra as well as evolving Zebra's Gourmet Cells.
The Salamander Sphinx is shown smiling despite crying from having been relieved of the pressure of the cola. It is Zebra's Drink and his first decided dish for his Full Course Menu. The Mellow Cola was also one of the items on Ichiryu's list as an ingredient for Toriko to capture in preparation for traveling to the Gourmet World.
