A completely unrelated food pic. This shiso flavored pepsi was on-sale in the hospital convenience store, so I picked up a bottle to try. For those who don't know, shiso is a Japanese herb from the mint family. The leaf is often paired with sushi and sashimi.

Ever since my jaw operation, I've lost the ability to appreciate subtle flavors (at least this is what my family would have you believe). Thus, the drink simply tasted like every other Japanese soda to me. If you need a comparison, imagine 7-up without the lemon / lime flavor.

Japanese soda takes some getting used to. Some of the flavors have to be an acquired taste. But this is a country that has whale flavored ice cream.
