Pepsi Ice Cucumber

AP reports that…

The soft drink, which hit stores here on Tuesday, doesn’t actually have any cucumber in it – but has been artificially flavored to resemble “the refreshing taste of a fresh cucumber,” said Aya Takemoto, spokeswoman of Japan’s Pepsi distributor, Suntory Ltd.

“We wanted a flavor that makes people think of keeping cool in the summer heat,” Takemoto said. “We thought the cucumber was just perfect.”

The mint-colored soda is on sale just for the summer and only in Japan, Takemoto said.

Gotta say, I suspect it’s an acquired taste!
