Pepsi Azuki Review

Pepsi AzukiI stopped by the supermarket on the way home and saw something new.  Pepsi Azuki.  If you are unsure of what azuki is check out wikipedia’s description here.   Beans, yes, beans.  I had to try it of course and will probably send a bottle home for my sister to sample.

I poured some in a mini wine glass that I assume was meant for wine tastings and it looked beautiful.

I was slightly disappointed that it didn’t taste like azuki until I remembered that I don’t want to drink pepsi that actually tastes like beans.  It tastes a lot like pepsi but with a wee bit of an flavor (sweet bean paste often made with azuki beans) which is much better because at least it is sweet. I remember pepsi shiso and it actually tasted like shiso (perilla).

Overall I would say that it is not beany enough to be gross and it is worth trying.  make sure you drink it from a pretty glass and take advantage of the color.

  1. theUngourmet – it was pretty interesting. It actually grew on me as I drank more.

    April Marie – I imagine it wouldn’t go down well in North America 🙂
