Just in time for summer and following in the footsteps of Pepsi drinks intended to be both great thirstquenchers for hot and humid Japan, Pepsi has released it’s latest and most delicious sounding flavor so far.
Salty Watermelon Pepsi is scheduled to go on sale in Japan starting July 24th for the suggested retail price of 140 yen. People who live in Japan, however, know that the drug stores and supermarkets will have better prices for those of you planning to hoard a couple of cases to last the year… (I mean, imagine a cold winter day, sitting in a hot kotatsu, sipping some Salty Watermelon Pepsi and snacking on some Pizza flavored potato ships… or better yet, sushi).
Even though some bloggers in Japan are calling the choice this year a bit uninspired, I still think it’s the best idea since Cucumber Pepsi (which I didn’t like but appreciated the effort of).
Time will tell, and we all have just under two months to debate and conjecture until finally cracking one open.
