Pepsi releases cucumber flavored soda in Japan

The Associated Press (read the story in the Washington Post) is covering a story about a new CSD being launched in Japan called “Pepsi Ice Cucumber”.  It doesn’t actually contain cucumber, but thanks to the magic of flavorings, it supposedly tastes like “fresh cucumber”.

Having personally tried all of Pepsi’s carbonated soft drink intros to hit US market in recent years, I’m intrigued by this product.  I must say, it actually sounds good to me….Much better, in fact, than the thought of Pepsi Jazz and some of the other varieties they’ve come out with. Heck, at least it’s an original concept, even if it’s formulated for the Japanese palate.

If anyone out there has a way to get their hands on this product, we’d sure love to try it :)
