I think the title of this topic can lead to a valid discussion question without closing it, but the body should be changed to eliminate that Chinese definition and add some kind of context.

ラムネ is supposed to be lemonade!?!? It tastes nothing like lemon! I was also thinking of チョコレート and ショコラ, but wasn't sure if they'd "count". Also, somewhat related: What changes are made to the pronunciations of gairaigo?

comment How often will a katakana term have an equivalent kanji spelling?
Aside from actual Japanese words that are simply written in katakana for various reasons (as indicated in this topic), I feel like any answer to "how often" will be heavily opinion-based.
