Sounds pretty nasty. I remember trying a weird soda over there like watermelon flavor and it was pretty bad.

With all that said I would probably still try it.

Ahhh... that's one sided. Personally I don't really like Coke (coca-cola), it has too much fizz. Pepsi has some too, but less. I don't like waiting 30 seconds after pouring 5oz into my cup for it to fizz down. Though I do love their Cherry coke. But I don't really drink too much carbonization. Cherry flavor makes every carbonated soda taste better.

Mountain Dew + Cherry Flavor = Code Red
Pepsi + CF = pepsi with cherry flavor
coca cola + CF = Cherry Coca Cola.

ps: Ya remember that pepsi blue or what ever it was called? Ahhh... that sure was a horrible drink ^_^

I prefer Coke over Pepsi. It is really funny with Mentos.

Seriously, ice cucumbers?

Is that even real and/or really realeased in the United States?

And to think I thought Pepsi Summer Mix was a weird tasting one....

This is definitely a "WTF" moment, I thank you for this discovery.

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."

The mint-colored soda is on sale just for the summer and only in Japan, Takemoto said. She said initial sales were brisk, and Suntory aims to sell 200,000 cases over the next three months.

Pepsi trails behind industry leaders Coca Cola (Japan) Company, with about 15 percent of the Japanese cola market, and also faces stiff competition from non-fizzy bottled drinks like green tea and coffee, which are popular here.

Suntory said it sold 20.5 million cases of Pepsi brand drinks in 2006, including its popular Pepsi NEX zero-calorie soda. (AP)

I informed somebody I know from another forum, who is currently in Japan, and he went n tried it. Had this to say:

Quote:
Finally had a taste of the cucumber pepsi today. Let's just say it's not bad, its tastes sweet and decent but if you think about the after taste for a while, it has a very very small after taste of mint? perhaps like the listerine dissolving things.

But I wouldn't buy it again I think.
I dunno. I think I'd try it.

Tried it earlier and on the first day it came out; some of us went to the convenience store and bought some bottles to see who in the office would drink it.

Not bad, I thought, and Asai's friend's comment on it having an aftertaste of mint is, IMHO, dead on.

I'm just glad that the whole Final Fantasy Potion trend never really caught on. I'd much rather give this Cucumber Ice a try than say, a FF Potion II. Ack.

The only pepsi I drink is the cola+lemon one... and that's pretty rare, 'cause I'm not very fond of soda.

The guy from akihabaranews.com tried the Cucumber Ice drink and said it was awful. No taste, only sugar. The Japanese who bought it probably did it out of curiosity and will never try it again XD

I am one who will try any new flavors of coke or pepsi when they come out, though I'm more a coke fan. If this actually was cucumber flavored I'd drink it, cucumbers are pretty good when it is warm out.

Also anyone else miss vanilla coke a lot? And did pepsi discontinue vanilla pepsi?

yes, one of the websites that talked about this, pointed out it wasn't really cucumber-flavored (neither natural nor artificial) but 'had a taste that suggested cucumber goodness' or something like that.
