Pepsi Ice Cucumber

Pepsi Ice Cucumber is the limited product this summer in Japan.
"Cucumber" is the vegetable you know. "Pepsi" is the drink you've probably drunk at least once in your life. But it's hard to imagine how Pepsi and cucumber mixed together...
I had imagined very disgusting taste but it turned out quite refreshing good taste!
It's more like fizzy melon soda but weaken melon taste, no Pepsi taste at all except that it's fizzy.
So it should be called "cucumber soda"!
The taste reminded me of "cream soda" which you can find classic Japanese coffee house "Kissaten" (see pic. No.2)
It seems that this fascinating drink is not advertised so much.
Karamoon told about it finding somewhere on the Internet but I had never heard about it until then. But actually it's sold in many convenience stores now in Japan.

Pocky: King Of The Snacks

Biscuit sticks partly-coated in choco-chemicals. Pocky is fucked-up, but that's not a reason to avoid it.

A typical box of Pocky contains 4 packets of Pocky, each containing 5 Pocky sticks. Share the choco sticks among your friends and enemies. Eat them under the cover of darkness, when the waxing moon shows your blood to be black, and the whispers in your ear fill your heart and mind with anticipation of something that is at once terrifying and exhilarating. Japanese snacks are strange. There's not much more that can be said.

Milk Cocoa Cake

These chocolate cakes look like they should be slightly harsh. On eating one (or all six) you'll find that they are slightly harsh. There's just something wrong about them; slightly too bitter, tasting like residues one might find after a fire in a plastics factory, they consist largely of stale air and leave the eater disappointed and cynical.
