Pepsi in Japan

Pepsi in Japan comes in many weird sizes and flavours, which is why I thought I would write about Pepsi.

When I lived back in Odawara, I was unable to find any at first as Pepsi are trying to push their product called “Pepsi Nex”.

I then found these cans in some vending machines, which are twice the size of cans back home!

The cans cost between 100円 – 120円.

and then in a 100円 shop I found a bottle.

The taste is different to Pepsi in the UK, which is my favourite fizzy drink (soda), but it tastes okay.

I tried Pepsi Nex as well, which I imagined tasting like Pepsi Max.

and I was wrong..it just has a weird taste?

Pepsi with extra caffeine..

Which proper boosted my energy, but the taste wasn’t anything special.

You can also buy huge bottles of Pepsi (only 1.5L), but I only found this in the Seiyu supermarket. I also found Pepsi Twist (lemon Pepsi), but I haven’t tried this one.

As well as these flavours, they also have the “fat-blocking Pepsi” which tastes awful, so I’m not surprised it can make people loose weight ;) .

Pepsi is by far my favourite of the fizzy drinks in Japan, but it is dangerous as so many vending machines on my way home in Tokyo stock it.
