Some of These Crazy Japanese Flavors Make Me Jealous. The Others? Not So Much.


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.
