Some of These #Crazy #Japanese #Flavors Make Me Jealous

Japan is known to be pretty flamboyant about their snack flavors, but where they really shine is in their soda. Pepsi had a few flavor experiments in the U.S. over the years, such as the admirable “Pepsi Holiday Spice” from the early 2000s. Yet nothing that can touch what the Pepsi scientists in Japan are doing. Check out these Japanese Pepsi flavors: the good, the bad, the just plain bizarre.

Pepsi Ice Cucumber

Cool and crisp.

Pepsi Blue Hawaii

Apparently pineapple + lemon flavor = blue?

Pepsi Black

50% less sugar than regular Pepsi and, uh, black.

Pepsi Salty Watermelon

Watermelon sounds good, but I’m not sure about the salt.

Pepsi Dry

A “non-sweet” soda if you’re into that sort of thing.

Pepsi Azuki

Named for East Asian Azuki beans.

Pepsi Carnival

A tropical fruit flavored pepsi, which doesn’t really have much to do with Carnivals, but it sure sounds fun!

Pepsi Mont Blanc

A tasty drink based off the French chestnut dessert.

Pepsi Red

Gingery, but also a little spicy.

Pepsi Nex Zero

Zero calorie Pepsi.

Pepsi Pink

Strawberry and milk flavored.

Pepsi Strong Shot

Pepsi Strong Shot

Pepsi, but with a higher dose of caffeine.

Pepsi Baobab

Pepsi Baobab

Based on the flavor of baobob tree fruit.

Pepsi Shiso

Shiso is a fragrant plant in Japan, therefore Pepsi Shiso has a minty flavor.

Pepsi White

Like yogurt? This tastes like liquid yogurt.

Pepsi Gold

A tinge of fruitiness inspired by the Caribbean.

Some of these are interesting, but now that the holidays are almost here, I’m kinda longing for that Pepsi Holiday Spice. Anyone else? Please bring it back, Pepsi!
