Japan Getting a Shake That Tastes Like Chewing Gum

Did I say "bubble gum"? No. I did not. Chewing gum.

At Lotteria fastfood restaurants in Japan, a minty chewing gum flavored shake will go on sale this July. No, you cannot chew the shake itself.

And this isn't just a peppermint flavored shake. Yahoo! Japan is very clear that it's Green Gum flavored.

Lotteria, of course, also produces Green Gum, so this all makes sense. Sorta.
