Azuki (red bean) flavored pepsi?!  
When I saw it, I grabbed it right away.. and then put it right back.

Then I grabbed it again. I had to try it!

But in the end, what was I thinking? It was a waste of calories... I don't even like azuki very much! Okay, it didn't really taste like Azuki, but oh well... ^^;;

One more wacky Pepsi flavor down for the count! I'd personally like to see a fall Pumpkin-spice flavored variety... What flavor would you like to see?

*goes back to work*

I like azuki... but azuki!pepsi just doesn't sound right at all D:
_kokushibyou_kokushibyou on October 21st, 2009 05:40 pm (UTC)
I would love to get a case of it. D: I want to try/have it so badly. Buu for it not coming to america. TT__TT

Haha. I'd love a pumpkin spice or mulled cider fall seasonal Pepsi product... but I have to admit, I have a hard time imagining carbonated pumpkin spice.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 05:50 pm (UTC)
Ooh, mulled cider might be good, too!!
Artamis Snowpaw: WTF?!artamissnowpaw on October 21st, 2009 05:47 pm (UTC)
That does sound a little crazy. I don't have a flavour I would like to see, but rather I want to try Pepsi Ice (Mint Flavour). I miss Sprite Ice so much, it was so cool and refreshing...and mint. *mint fiend*

I'd like one with a fruity flavour... maybe cherry? Probably there's already one! But we don't have it here D;

Woah, there are so many! We only have regular Pepsi here :|
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 05:51 pm (UTC)
But there's cherry pepsi! =D Which is hard to find in Japan, but I've seen it or Cherry Coke at some import stores.

i LOVE azuki but.. hate soda. omg I can't even imagine how that drink must taste >P eeweew!
zeyazeya on October 21st, 2009 06:14 pm (UTC)
Wow the pumpkin is actually a good idea xD

Oh well, Pepsi NEX forever, period.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 05:53 pm (UTC)
I just wish that they made a pepsi next that tasted like pepsi, y'know? When I crave soda, I drink Nex, but I actually don't like it at all... ^^;; I tried to put Pal Sweet's AMAZING 0-calorie sugar in it, but it fizzed all over the place. I don't know why Pepsi just doesn't license out that sugar and find a way to use it to make amazingly deliciously sweet 0-calorie Pepsi =D
.to.appear.to.disappear.nekosenpai on October 21st, 2009 06:14 pm (UTC)
O________________O I'd so like to try the azuki one. I love azuki! ^_^
I agree that pumpkin would be fun to try. *nod nod* And maybe... lychee! Yeah! :3
Jessraindancer_jess on October 21st, 2009 06:38 pm (UTC)
Peach! I add peach coffee flavoring to my pepsi and it's great.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 05:54 pm (UTC)
Oooh that sounds good!!
Kira_Shadowkira_shadow on October 21st, 2009 06:38 pm (UTC)
now pumpkin sounds like an actually do-able flavor...

how about maccha pepsi? lol
or mh... sweet-corn pepsi? lol XD
Ariananorcalsanjifan on October 21st, 2009 06:41 pm (UTC)
Azuki Pepsi....the thought is rather disturbing....but hell I'd try it XD *dr. pepper and pepsi fiend*
Reiquentin_watson on October 21st, 2009 07:23 pm (UTC)
Didn't they make a green tea flavored Pepsi in Japan at some point?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 05:55 pm (UTC)
I think they did, but I never had any..
grimdc13grimdc13 on October 21st, 2009 09:21 pm (UTC)
Yummy and weird soda flavors in the states.
Well If you want flavors try Jones Soda , they come in every flavor from pumpkin to turkey flavor (i got it as a gag b-day gift. It's like bertie bott's every flavor beans .

Henry weinhard's rootbeer and vanilla cream soda(has yummy honey flavor to it.

I wonder if they can make a chocolate covered cherry version! It reminds me of our 1950's diner where they add flavor shots to you cola for just abit extra.

But I would suggest looking up Japanese markets like Mitsuwa or Marukai here in the US , they import all the goodies.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 05:56 pm (UTC)
Re: Yummy and weird soda flavors in the states.
I used to drink Jones soda when I was in college! ^^ But they don't carry it in Japan unfortunately. At least not that I've seen. Same with Henry Weinhard's, which is AMAZING.
Yuki: I live on coffee.verdandi on October 21st, 2009 09:43 pm (UTC)
If I even drank soda... I'd want a peppermint flavoured one. I do that to coffee all the time now.
milkandcandies: midnight smokeprismatic_star on October 22nd, 2009 12:21 am (UTC)
That is so weird!!
Btw, I hear they have Lay's blueberry flavoured chips in Japan?? Is it true?
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 05:59 pm (UTC)
LOL this is the first I've heard of this!! But I don't really get out much. I'll take a look around!
超ちゃ人: MoneyZ? (°-°)>chochajin on October 22nd, 2009 12:53 am (UTC)
Actually I'm still a big fan of Pepsi Shiso.
I haven't seen that new flavor yet. Although I'm always hestitating just like you, I'm really curious at the same time.
Might grab it if I see it at my local conbini XD
clarebear_24clarebear_24 on October 22nd, 2009 01:19 am (UTC)
I wanna try some .. Care to send one to australia..
We never get exciting drink flavours ... no fair >_
chibicerebuschibicerebus on October 22nd, 2009 01:23 am (UTC)
I love azuki beans. But if the Pepsi doesn't really taste like it then I don't know if I'd like it. But I would definitely give it a try if I was in Japan.

I guess I would like to see chocolate Pepsi. lol
I think Pumpkin spice Pepsi would be interesting~!
emilycalasander on October 22nd, 2009 02:55 am (UTC)
I think that with sodas in general, the flavors have to extremely strong and bold for it to stand up to all that carbonation. I've had corn flavored soda and it wasn't half bad, I was surprised. Maybe they're not upping the flavor? If they put enough spice in the pumpkin soda, then maybe it'll work? I'd like to try it if they end up making it. :D
キヨミナイkiyominai on October 22nd, 2009 04:52 am (UTC)

I'd like to try a cereal flavored Pepsi drink, like frosted flakes.
mei_sanmei_san on October 22nd, 2009 06:16 am (UTC)
Again, I'm prolly repeating myself. We should have it in America!!!
Alita: boomangelachibayuy on October 22nd, 2009 08:29 am (UTC)
Ooh that sounds interesting. Didn't leave the house today cuz I was sick but I'll have to pick up some tomorrow.

I was really in love with the shiso flavored.
YumeKutteIkt(YuKI): Hermione+GayPornyumekutteikt on October 22nd, 2009 08:40 am (UTC)
Haha, actually I have the Azuki Pepsi bottle right next to my desk as well!^o^ Yup I tried it, and it's not as bad as I've initially thought(since I don't like azuki much); only it's just a bit too sweet for me though.

Oh, and the flavor I'd like to see? I'd definitely want them to make some soda product with Yuzu flavor! The hot Honey&Yuzu drink is a bliss for me in cold season.<3(I love it over honey&lemon!)

bang.bang.: bleah drugskorpsy on October 22nd, 2009 09:05 am (UTC)
hah, I'm collecting weird Kitkat flavours the way you are with Pepsi! lol.

So far I've got-
Gingerale flavour
vegetable flavour
annnd my favourite so far, Watermelon & Salt flavour! (tasted like... watermelon and salt. )
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on October 22nd, 2009 06:07 pm (UTC)
LOL I tried the vegetable ones... they were so gross!! My favorite limited flavor is the Sakura ones... andthe blueberry ones weren't too bad!
孤児koji on October 23rd, 2009 06:14 am (UTC)
lol, I started doing that too cause my friends in America want me to send them different flavors. I found Apple&Carrot and it was surprisingly good! Also Satsumaimo <3 Still need to buy Pudding and Coffee sometime soon.

Gingerale sounds really intriguing 0.0
草加市: OiShishi - Fagottrykurosaki_koi on October 22nd, 2009 09:16 am (UTC)
Somehow I think pumpkin spice mixed with pepsi would taste disgusting... yet people would buy it.

hmmm... that ISN'T already out? Pina colada?
0x0x on October 22nd, 2009 10:20 am (UTC)
do want. i love azuki.
Yuki: I live on coffee.verdandi on October 22nd, 2009 01:05 pm (UTC)
If I drank soda, it would have to be peppermint-flavoured.

...I'm totally on a peppermint kick. As a matter of fact, I want peppermint-flavoured coffee now, and my café here doesn't have the syrup.

Damn school coffee bar.
Amelia: Kenshin is still my OTL.bigfootbeliever on October 22nd, 2009 01:27 pm (UTC)
I loooove Azuki. I think it's delicious. I want to try this!
Dr. Claw: You ask too many questions!doctor_claw on October 22nd, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
Still not as weird as the Cucumber Pepsi you posted but it's up there. Azuki, only in Japan.
孤児koji on October 23rd, 2009 06:10 am (UTC)
I've seen this in the stores but havn't tried it yet. If there was pumpkin though I would grab it in an instant- I LOVE pumpkin and kabocha <3. Though I'm not sure how it would taste as a soda... but I'd try it! Or chestnut would also be good for the fall.
Chiakichiaki777 on October 23rd, 2009 05:43 pm (UTC)
I wonder if Pepsi will make a coke flavored pepsi. That will be the day.
