Nobody’s drinking soda to lose weight. I mean, maybe some people. But they are known as asshats. Well, Japan is introducing a new type of soda that might make all of Japan, asshats.
The drink is actually designated as a “food for specified health uses”. This means the product is regulated by the Japanese government and has its seal of approval.
Pepsi Special actually contains indigestible form dextrin, which is used as a dietary fiber supplement and makes it difficult for the body to absorb fat while eating. Pepsi Special isn’t the first cola of this kind released in Japan. However, it is one of the first.
Pepsi and Suntory worked together so that Pepsi Special doesn’t have an overpowering dextrin aftertaste, but a refreshing Pepsi finish.
If you’re in Japan, it hits stores November 18th. Let us know how it tastes!
