From avocado salad Cheetos to vegetable-flavored Häagen-Dazs ice cream, the people of Japan love experimenting with unusual flavors—fortunately, a new and unique drink flavor from Kimura Inryou will appeal to those with adventurous taste buds.
The Unagi Cola is made from eel extract and features a salty, fishy flavor that captures the essence of savory grilled barbecue eel. Like many other refreshing carbonated beverages, this one will be sold at highway rest stops and gift shops as if there was nothing standout about the grilled eel flavor. Hopefully anyone who picks up a bottle of this bizarre soda knows that they're in for an unusual flavor.
Prior to the release of this eel-flavored cola, other bizarre soda flavors that have been launched in Japan include salty watermelon, curry and cucumber.
