Pepsi has just introduced a supposedly refreshing new drink in Japan, but only for the summer – Pepsi Ice Cucumber.  The flavor is apparently supposed to invoke feelings of freshness and keeping cool.

The Washington Post reports:

The soft drink, which hit stores here on Tuesday, 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.
