Only the Japanese :LOL:

Pepsi Ice Cucumber (http://www.japanprobe.com/?p=1812) officially went on sale today, and you should be able to find it in most supermarkets and convenience stores around Japan. While the bottle clearly describes it as “combination” of cucumber and cola, there just isn’t much cola flavor to it. The drink takes on a somewhat sweet and fruity flavor, but the artificial cucumber flavor is noticeable, in my opinion. It’s interesting for a few sips, but then the artificial cucumber aftertaste kicks in, making it pretty nasty. At the supermarket I went to, there was a huge dent in the Ice Cucumber display, which probably meant a lot of people bought a few bottles because of the novelty/hype. It will be interesting to see if its popularity lasts…

Hey, those japanese folks are some wacky bastards. I love it. It's not that they're wrong... just very different. I find the difference in culture very interesting.

Japanese Ice Creams
Japanese have long taken pride in their ability to adopt, adapt and improve on customs, practices and styles from other countries.

Having succeeded globally with cars, electronics and even fashion, it was only natural the Japanese turned their hand to trying to surpass the West with one of its favourite culinary delights - ice cream.


Cactus Ice Cream (Saboten Aisu)

A tasty treat that will prick the hearts of ice cream lovers everywhere. It is smooth and refreshing with a taste that must be like drawing water from a cactus after being parched in a desert for days.


Chicken Wing Ice Cream (Nagoya Tebasaki)

Nagoya is famous for its poultry, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that the taste of this ice cream is best described as foul. It actually tastes like a fried chicken wing, which is fine if that's what you're eating, but not if you're tucking into some ice cream.


Crab Ice Cream (Kani Aisu)

Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost prefecture, is renowned for its rich array of seafood, prime amongst the delicacies being crab. Though not everybody's preferred ice cream flavour, this is a dish worth getting the claws into.


Eel Ice Cream (Unagi Aisu)

Eel is a summer delicacy in Japan, which probably explains why Futaba decided to use it to flavour an ice cream. Surprisingly, the smooth taste is quite palatable, even if the thought of what's being eaten is not quite as tasty


Fish Ice Cream (Sanma Aisu)

Something must smell fishy about ice cream flavored with saury, a saltwater fish popular in Japan...But there's no worries about that with this offering from Kimura Shoten as the fishy fumes have been drowned out by liberal doses of brandy. Not the greatest tasting ice cream on earth, though.


Octopus Ice Cream (Taco Aisu)

Want to tantalize the taste buds with a tentacle? If so, Octopus Ice Cream is the go. Japanese have been able to come up with an amazing variety of uses for octopus, ranging from delicacy to porno movie prop. Little wonder that octopus has found its way into ice cream, then.


Shrimp Ice Cream (Sakura Ebi Aisu)

It's prawnographic! Most people would be making a report to health authorities if they dug up a full shrimp's body from their ice cream, but with this product from Roman Holiday that's the norm. The image Shrimp Ice Cream probably conjures up amongst most people probably comes closest to the actual taste


Wasabi Ice Cream (Wasabi Aisu)

Sushi gets its sting from the horseradish paste known in Japanese as wasabi. While its tingling taste makes a delightful addition to raw fish, wasabi's tangy flavor also makes for a surprisingly edible ice cream

Well if you ever went to the World Coca Cola in ATL and sampled some of their products from around the world you would know that these Asian countries like the taste of some weird shit.

They make hamburgers meat out of human waste, this is not surprising.
