Weird Japanese Things #1

I may have mentioned this before, in a comment or on MSN, but now I’m posting about it.

Go ahead and look at the picture.

Pepsi Ice CucumberSo, here’s the thing, I don’t usually like Pepsi. Anyone who knows me can tell you that I am a Coke drinker.

But I have a dark secret in my past: I actually liked Crystal Pepsi. A lot. I was one of the few people that was actually disappointed when it was discontinued.

So, now I found this, and I’m certain that I would never, ever see it in North America.

“What does it taste like?” you ask.

Well, I thought it tasted like Crystal Pepsi with a hint of mint and cucumber.

Amanda thought it tasted like Pepsi and cucumber peels mixed with mouthwash.

And one of our coworkers said that it tasted like Pepsi and cucumber peels, but he didn’t notice the mouthwashy bit.

So, is it as good as Crystal Pepsi?

No. Definitely not.

But, hey, if you’ve always had a yearning to drink a cucumber mint cola, let me know and I’ll pick some up for you.

  1. it’s too early in the morning… now I have this taste in my mouth just thinking about it…. mmm coffee give coffee to take it out. well If I see it I’ll proabably turn around and forget I know what it tastes like… did someone actually like this??

  2. bleh, 😛 yucky stuff

  3. I don’t know about the cucumber stuff, but I’ll say Yea to the Absinthe!

  4. Oh thank God. I woke up in a sweat last night with a craving for Mint Cucumber Pepsi.

  5. I swear you did mention this before at some point. And someone sent a couple of bottles to Scott Kurtz and Kristofer Straub over at the PVP comic website at some point and they did a webcast video of them drinking it and their reaction. I’m sure there’s either a Youtube video of it up somewhere or it’ll be in their blog archives. Feel free to take a look. If I recall the answer was, okay but not great.

  6. PS – Not a fan of your new theme.

  7. Okay, Amanda said the same, so…

    Out with the new, in with the old.
