Japan: home of instant ramen, PlayStation, emojis and other delightful things. How about a little unagi-flavored soda to go with that?
Kimura Inryou — a company that also makes ramune, those superfun sodas with marbles in the bottle — will release the carbonated tribute to grilled eel in Shizuoka Prefecture, south of Tokyo and home to Mount Fuji, on July 21.
The cola, made with eel extract (because that’s a thing), will go for 200 yen (roughly $2 USD) via the company’s online store, according to Rocket News 24. You can also buy a 20-bottle case for 4,000 yen ($40 USD).

How’s it going to taste? Our prediction: similar to sipping on a bottle of fishy, smoky, slightly sweet soy sauce. Pair with a chirashi dinner.
