Japan is about to increase belching nationwide with the release of super-carbonated Pepsi.

Pepsi Strong 5.0GV offers five times more carbonation than a typical Pepsi, and comes in a much smaller, structurally reinforced bottle. The offering also ups the ante when it comes to caffeine and is available in two varieties, Pepsi Strong 5.0GV, in a 420 and 490 ml bottles, and sugar-free Pepsi Strong 5.0GV Zero, which will be available only in a 490 ml bottle.

The official release is slated for June 21st, although the the company is offering free bottles to 10,000 fans who log on to the Pepsi promotional site via Twitter and 5,000 to those who follow the official Suntory Line Facebook account by 5:00 pm on June 6th. Of course, you’ll have to live in Japan to take advantage.

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.

crystal pepsi

PepsiCo announced yesterday that Crystal Pepsi is returning from the 1990s graveyard for an extremely limited run. In fact, it’s so limited that 16 oz six packs will only be offered as awards in a Pepsi contest that will run from Dec. 10 to 11 on the Pepsi Pass app.

PepsiCo will choose 13,000 winners who will receive the product as a “special holiday treat” for fans who long for a clear cola that the world rejected decades ago. Unfortunately, it’s almost a tease for the winners since gratification will be limited to a single six pack.

Back To The Future Day went pretty well overall. It seems like everyone had fun with it, especially brands involved with the original film.

Well, everyone except Pepsi.

As you may have heard, Pepsi planned on releasing 6,500 limited-edition Pepsi Perfects in the U.S. for the occasion priced at around $20 each. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned and they’re trying to make amends.

Pepsi has become the latest company associated with Back To The Future II to make products featured in the film a reality. Indeed, Pepsi Perfect will be an extremely limited edition offering staring on October 21, 2015—the same date Marty McFly arrived in the future and ordered the beverage.

PepsiCo’s senior director of marketing, Lou Arbetter tells The Hollywood Reporter:

“Fans have always been a little crazy about it. So we wanted to take advantage of the fact that Marty traveled to the future, to this month, and wanted to actually come out with the product.”

Pepsi plans to release the beverage in a limited run of only 6,500 bottles, available while supplies last. Fortunately for us, the 16.9 oz. bottle will retail for $20.15 which is a steal compared to Marty’s bill of $50 in the movie. And while the Pepsi Perfect bottles will be packaged in a special futuristic case, the cola will be the same formula as Pepsi with real sugar.

For those attending NYCC this weekend, the first 200 fans dressed as Marty McFly will receive Pepsi Perfect bottles on each day of the convention. Pepsi will also be celebrating with a booth inspired by “Café ’80s,” featuring a DeLorean and even a Wild Gunman arcade game.

emotional pepsi

Man, now I feel really bad for saying “no, not at all” when a waiter/waitress responds to my request for a Diet Coke with “is Pepsi ok?”.

Indeed, Lesly Villegas begins crying after tasting Pepsi for the first time. You see, she’s allergic to caffeine and her boyfriend finally enlightened her to the fact that caffeine free soda exists.

I can’t imagine the kind of joy she would have experienced if that soda was caffeine free Dr. Pepper or something.

If you aren’t familiar with Crystal Pepsi, it was part of the clear soda fad that came and went quickly the early 1990s. However, we are now learning that it may actually be poised for a comeback after competitive eater / Crystal Pepsi fan Kevin Strahle tweeted that he had received a letter from the company on Crystal Pepsi stationery that stated:

“We’ve had customers ask us to bring back their favorite products before, but never with your level of enthusiasm and humor… We definitely hear you and your followers and we think you’ll be happy with what’s in store… Stay tuned.”

AdAge confirmed with PepsiCo that the letter is genuine, but reps wouldn’t reveal any additional details other than “Crystal Pepsi fans are going to be happy with what we have planned”.

Strawberry flavored milk is one thing, but Japan is now getting strawberry milk flavored Pepsi. It will be called “Pink Cola” and it is, in fact, very pink. This will be a limited edition flavor that will be made available beginning starting on December 9th, but it isn’t the first time it’s made an appearance. Pink Cola first went on sale in Japan back in 2011, so this return visit must mean it was a hit.

This Pepsi cooler looks like some kids riding toy, but it’s way better. It’s a remote-controlled 30-quart cooler that features headlights, speakers, three different speeds, reverse and the ability to navigate rough terrain.

Just imagine, next time you’re out relaxing with your friends and you’ve wandered too far from your cooler, all you have to do is guide it to your new location and an ice cold beverage is yours for the taking (preferably not Pepsi though).
