Seriously On Pop Culture- Would You Drink This Pepsi?

She So Ghetto Cucumber PepsiSo, would you?

Would you try this flavor of Pepsi?

TOKYO — Japanese are staying cool as a cucumber this summer with “Pepsi Ice Cucumber” _ a new soda based on the crisp green gourd.

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.”

I wish I could get my hands on a bottle. Just so I can say I tried it. Tokyo style.
