Most of the Pepsi flavors found here are only found in specific countries, or were only made available for a limited time in several places.

Available in Japan, this flavor was artificially created to mimic the refreshing taste of cold cucumbers that the Japanese traditionally munch on a hot summer’s day.
2. Pepsi Fire and Ice

5. Pepsi Gold
