It might be a hoax. Who knows. But I knew it would be posted here at some point, and I got there first.

I don't know, I've had cucumber flavored jellies and ices before, and they are pretty refreshing. I just don't find this all that odd actually.

Has the internets broken my weirdness sensor for good?

This sounds like the perfect thing to wash down tempura-fried gummies.

How come this gets so much love, but all of you were all "yecch" on the kool-aid pickles a while back? Aren't they about the same thing (or two sides of the same coin)?

This will be a refreshing accompaniment for shrimp flavored cotton candy at the amusement parks this summer.

Show some love to my Kool-Aid pickles.

(Also, this would go great with Hendrick's Gin!)

An Afghan coworker of mine once described a treat he grew up with, especially popular during the hot summer months in Kabul. Take a large cucumber, some unsweetened yoghurt, some ice and a few sprigs of mint and blend them together. Find a nice shady spot and enjoy. My mouth always waters at the thought, but I've never gotten around to making some.

So, yeah.

I don't think I'll be drinking any Pepsi Cucumber whatsit, but I think I can understand the appeal.

That sounds good! Like a Pimm's Cup, only in soda form.

Are you ready for the ultimate Pepsi MetaFilter experience?

You soon shall be, humblepigeon.

lekvar, I believe that be raitu, more or less. yummy stuff.

artificial (therefore likely nasty) cucumber flavor would be bad. but a natural flavor could be great, yes exactly like pimm's cup.

I really love the subtle taste of the translucent white part of watermelon rind, the part right before it gets super-sour... it has a cucumber sort of taste to it.

I read the link title, "Pepsi Ice Cucumber", and clicked... the banner on the linked page said Japan Probe.

Cucumber, Probe.... I didn't wait for it to load.

Your assumption is only true because you turned it into a self-fulfilling prophecy.

"Someone else was going to do it" is no excuse for a crap post.

Have you ever tried pickled watermelon rind?

I wonder what other soft drink sensations I can find on the internets. I can't wait to share with all of you!!!

But that's cucumber, not pickle, so it probably won't help my hemorrhoids, right?
posted by davy at 1:39 PM on May 24, 2007


This could conceivably work. Cucumber is a really nice ingredient in martinis and mojitos. Plus I hear cucumbers have other uses. It's a pretty versatile veggie actually.

It will probably taste a bit like watermelon. Cucumber + sugar = watermelonlike flavor. Try it, you'll like it. If you like cucumber slices that taste like watermelon, that is.
posted by treepour at 1:48 PM on May 24, 2007


I would drink it.

I know some folks that make cucumber vodka. It's good, good stuff, especially with a splash of tonic water.

Hey wendell, wasn't there a movie where the bad guy snorted white powder from a naked lady's derriere?

Sounds good to me. I'd like to figure out how to get some here in the US.

And it's not a hoax!

Coke with Bacon doesn't surprise me at all, not since I had a bacon martini at the NYC meetup. My tag line for it, which I've probably overused, is "It's as good as you'd expect."
posted by MrMoonPie at 2:15 PM on May 24, 2007


Oh man, I love cel-ray and I'd love love LOVE to try this.

Any Mefites in Japan: I would gladly participate in some sort of exchange or just pay for the soda/shipping/etc.
