Illustration for article titled This Summer, Drink Up Salty Watermelon Pepsi in Japan

It's quickly becoming an annual summer tradition: Pepsi Japan releases truly interesting flavors to help the country cool down.


This summer, the flavor is "Salty Watermelon". Above, you can see what the drink's packaging and color will look like.

Watermelon is very much a summer food in Japan, where people are known to sprinkle some salt on it to bring out the flavor.


In year's past, Pepsi Japan rolled out cucumber and shiso flavored Pepsi. The Ice Cucumber Pepsi was disgusting, but the Shiso Pepsi was actually way better than it had any right to be.

Salty Watermelon Pepsi goes on sale in Japan on July 24.
