Aimed at health-conscious women in their 20s and 30s, the fizzy drink contains tea antioxidants called catechins and leaves a slight green tea aftertaste. It goes on sale June 8.

What won't Coca-cola and Pepsi try to put in their drinks. Pepsi had cucumber flavored drink (I don't want to say cola) and now we have green tea-flavored....

Aside from fatfrenchfool's ipecac extract, what other fun flavors will they try?

How about Ramen-flavored? or Sushi-Flavored?

I'm waiting for the Pepsi Shiso flavored drink. Yep, that's this summer's flavor. Actually having tasted a shiso drink before, I am kind of looking forward to it. I kind of liked the cucumber one too. Catechin flavor is too run-of-the-mill for me. Wasabi cola might be pretty good. The wasabi cider doesn't have enough umph to it.

I kind of liked the cucumber Pepsi too.

Green tea and shiso flavored drinks? No thanks. I like a shiso leaf with my sashimi, but I don't want to drink it. I like curry too, but I don't want to drink that either.

"wasabi cider"

I like wasabi with my sashimi, but I don't want to drink that either.

The Ultimate Drink:

(drum rolls)

....Kusaya-Cola....

Now, ladies and gentlemen, this is what I'll call a "Japanese Dish Flavoured Drink"...

Kusaya cola would be pretty wild.... How about funazushi cola. Or do one better, make some colas like Jones Soda in the States, they made field turf soda for NFL fans. Sumo Wrestler Fundoshi soda, that would be scary...

This news is in ABC News' "strange" section, heh heh.

"Takoyaki Coke"

Might as well do Uni Coke then, LOL!

Will definitely try this if it gets loaded into our machines.

Extract of fugu, however, to make your lips go numb, could be ultra cool.

maybe better without the coca cola part.

"Aimed at health-conscious women" ...most average japnese women i know, let alone "health conscious" although you could argue that they are; wouldn't touch coke if the last drink available because its so "unhealthy" and the taste is unrefined.

888naff, you beat me to it. I'm a health-conscious gaijin, and my Japanese wife convinced me to quit cola a few years ago. and that's one of the few things I thank her for :)

"everyone must realise they are drinking some nasty artificial rubbish"

There's nothing artificial in regular Coke.

What the heck ever happened to Jolt "Twice the Caffeine, Twice the Sugar" Cola?

Ivan - Are you saying there's artificial stuff in regular Coke?

coke and green tea good.

Sarge, I guess the water is not artificial

I understand that regular Coke doesn't have artificial ingredients. The natural ones in it are bad enough for you in quantity.

Instant Chicken Ramen Coke would be the bestest!

Wonder if it cleans the rust stains in toilets as good as regular coke does?

Spudman, Most rust stains are now caused by the iron in the water, not the basin.

I thought this "article" originally mentioned Pepsi's new shiso flavored cola... well, I just tried it. Not bad! It's green! ( not from the shiso leaf, from food coloring ) And it tastes like, well, like shiso! Except it's a little bit sweet!
