PRIZE DRAWING: Because I Have Enough Blue and Enough Hawaii

When I first heard about the Pepsi Blue Hawaii being sold only in Japan, I knew I had to try it and review it, so I went about getting my hands on some. It wasn’t a matter of if, because I knew some capitalist soul would be selling some on eBay, but it was a matter of how much I was willing to spend. I ended up paying $22 (US Dollars) for three bottles of it, plus $20 for shipping from Japan. A few days prior to that, TIB reader Fury emailed me and asked if I’d be willing to review some snacks from Japan she wanted to send me. Because I’m not one to turn down free snacks, I told her to send them my way. When the box arrived, it was full of the Japanese snacks she promised, but there was a little surprise at the bottom of the box, which was a bottle of the Pepsi Blue Hawaii.

The bottles of Pepsi Blue Hawaii I purchased on eBay arrived the other day and since I already reviewed it, I don’t have a need for all three bottles, but I am going to keep one for myself in hopes that it will be worth $42 someday on eBay so I can make my money back. But as for the other two bottles, I’m going to give them away to two lucky readers via a prize drawing.

  1. How about a Pepsi just for men? Kinda of like that Otoko Kaoru menthol gum. You could chew the gum, drink the Pepsi, and feel that testosterone rising!

  2. How about EXTREME Pepsi Code Blue. Blue raspberry, except with enough caffeine to give you a heart attack.

  3. I’m shocked no one has mentioned this yet — Coconut Pepsi! Yeah, I don’t know why it would be a Japanese flavor…I guess the whole Hawaii thing made me think of it. Or Sweet Tofu Pepsi…even though tofu has no real flavor on it’s own. I fail.

  4. since food companies seem to incorporate bacon into everything nowadays, I suppose a bacon-flavored pepso is just around the corner..

  5. I just know that bukkae flavored Pepsi has made its way through the test kitchens. Crazy Japs!!!

  6. Pepsi Pepperoni! Maybe not exactly Japanese, but they’d probably try making it anyway.

  7. (I’d actually buy the coconut & Lychee suggestions above);
    Persimmon Pepsi
    Milk Tea Pepsi
    Chocolate Pepsi
    Squid Chip Pepsi
    Enoki Pepsi
    Cinnamon Pepsi
    Salted Plum Pepsi

  8. Pepsi with Boba balls in the bottom… just because it’s fun to say “balls”….

  9. Diet pepsi with a lemon is the best pepsi.

    They should make orange pepsi. I would actually buy that, as I mix pepsi and orange soda all the time.

  10. Mint flavored Pepsi, but named Emerald Frosion Pepsi
    (cookie to those who get the name reference)

  11. Something with ginger. Pear and ginger? Cherry? Ginger SOMETHING. But not garlic because that’s just pleh…..

  12. I’m curious enough to see what it’s like. I think Orange Pepsi would taste pretty good. Anything Orange flavored is good in my book.

  13. My good side says Matcha (green tea) Pepsi… my evil side says Kewpie Mayonnaise Pepsi!

  14. Watermelon-Kiwi flavored pepsi. You’d be a fool not to want to try some of it. Seriously.

    My apologies, I forgot to fill in my email, how could I win without it?

  15. I’d say either something fruity (banana or strawberry or something) or something totally off-the-wall. I know a few people from Japan who delight in eating chocolate on their Cheetos, so it doesn’t seem like much would be off-limits!

  16. I would like to start off by saying, Pepsi forever! Long live the Pepsi-Frito Alliance.

    To answer your question, I would like, nay I DEMAND, Pepsi Max: Beyond Thunderdome.
    This Pepsi will have twice the normal caffeine as well as 8% alcohol by volume. It shall also contain a daily serving of all needed vitamins and minerals and come with a free itunes song on every bottle.

    Oh, also, I want it to have two cigs worth of sweet sweet nicotine, and a modest amount of prozac to make me feel ok about drinking something so terrible for me.

  17. How about a chai pepsi? Or cheese-pepsi. I don’t even know how they would do that. O__o;;

  18. I love trying new sodas! It sucks that you had to pay the $42 bucks and got one anyways…but it’s great for the two lucky ones who get to try it!

    They should make a watermelon flavored Pepsi. They have cherry Pepsi, why not watermelon…or grape infused?

  19. Soon they’ll be making Pepsi in all kinds of colors…
    Pepsi Green, Pepsi Purple, Pepsi Pink, Pepsi Rainbow, you name it!

  20. I’ve never been to Hawaii so trying the Pepsi Blue could be the next best thing! As far as new flavors, I often have a Pepsi w/Hot Wings…hmmm (less napkins)
