    Pepsi has launched a “fat-blocking” soda in Japan.  The new product, Pepsi Special, has been approved as a health conscious food item from the government and will hit stores in early 2013. Pepsi has toyed with various flavor innovations previously in Japan, like fruit versions of its classic soda, but this marks the first time the soda maker has gone the health route.

    JAPAN BAGEL HEAD THING IS SCARING US

    Cultural oddities…why is this happening?

    A Japanese artist named Keroppy who pioneered the “modcon” body art explained toVice back in 2009 that it’s about innovation: “People who like extreme body modification want to find their own way of doing things, and they’re always looking for new ways to do that. The more progressive the scene gets, the more these people have to experiment and go their own way.”

    FROZEN FOAM HELPS KEEP KIRIN BEER COLD


    How refreshing! Japanese brewer Kirin’s new Ichiban Shibori Frozen Draft is served with a layer of frozen foam on top to help keep it frosty cold.
    Kirin creates its frozen beer foam by blowing air into beer as it is stirred and chilled to a frosty -5 degrees Celsius. Atop a glass of beer, the resulting foam can reportedly keep the drink chilled for a full 30 minutes. In Japan, frozen foam helps keep Kirin beer cold
