Japan Christmas Pepsi Fried Chicken Cola

Christmas is approaching and in Japan it is celebrated in a slightly different way. After a successful marketing campaign by KFC years ago, fried chicken has become the favorite Christmas meal. Now Pepsi has one special Christmas version of his coke which is said to pair perfectly with fried chicken.

The formula has been changed by adding dietary fiber to break up the fatness of the chicken and the sweetness has been reduced to improve the flavor of the chicken. There is also a hint of lemon to further break down the oil and add a touch of freshness.
