Another season, another pair of bizarre beverages in Japan, courtesy of the world’s premier competing cola companies.
This Autumn, Pepsi’s odd offering is Azuki Pepsi. Azuki is a sweet red bean, often found in Japanese desserts, and it makes for an inoffensive ingredient in fizzy pop. Azuki Pepsi is too sickly for my tastes, but at least it’s original.
Meanwhile, Coke, in a rather lackluster effort, have come out with “Coca Cola Plus Fiber”.
It tastes exactly the same as usual Diet Coke, but apparently “keeps you regular.” I’d be worried if you’re turning to Coca Cola for your nutritional needs- some vegetables or fruit would be better. But at least old folk can save money on Metamucil.
