Made In Japan - Pepsi Ice Cucumber

"Cool as a cucumber." It's just a saying, right? Well, maybe in most places, but not in Japan, where Japanese are staying cool as a cucumber this summer with Pepsi Ice Cucumber - a new soda based on the crisp green gourd.

The purist in you will want to avoid this beverage, which doesn't actually have any cucumber in it - but has been artificially flavored to resemble "the refreshing taste of a fresh cucumber," said Aya Takemoto, spokeswoman of Japan's Pepsi distributor, Suntory Ltd., which plans to sell some 200,000 cases of the stuff this summer.

Mr. Takemoto did not comment on whether there would be a "Teen BoyZ Pepsi Ice Cucumber," which will not use the burpless cucumber variety.
