sakura pepsi

On March 8th, Pepsi will bring a taste of cherry blossoms to Japan with their new Pepsi Sakura.

The new offering continues a long line of unusual Pepsi flavors in the country and will reportedly offer a light pink hue and the smell of sweet sakura.

There’s no word on the actual taste, but since Japan is the land of weird flavors, it will likely be well received.

AsapSCIENCE has taken to YouTube to ruin your enjoyment of soda for all time by showing how it would affect your brain and body if happened to be the only beverage you ever consumed.

If you prefer to live in ignorance, skip the video after the jump. The rest of us will be split between denial and sheer terror.

gummy coke bottle

Instructables user Morena DIY has put her creativity to work by fashioning a gummy Coca-Cola bottle that is virtually indistinguishable from the real deal. It’s also amazingly easy to make, with the gummy portion being made simply by mixing the coke with gelatin, which is then poured into the bottle before being refrigerated. Once solid, the bottle is removed from the gummy interior and the original label and cap applied as a finishing touch.

shotglass

BenShot, a glass studio from Wisconsin, makes what they call a “Bulletproof” shot glass. It’s basically your standard, 1.5-ounce shot glass with a real slug pressed into the glass. They also make a bulletproof tumbler.

Needless to say, if you try and make these at home the old fashioned way, bad things will happen.

ottertea copy

We’ve seen some unique tea infusers in recent years, but the cuteness level of the Tea Otter is unmatched (with the possible exception of the sloth tea infuser).

Clearly, our future would be in tatters without this product. So, the key to our continued survival as a species is funding the Gama-Go Tea Otter Kickstarter.

Still not convinced? Remember that it does TWO things well:

-Looks cute
-Makes tea
