If you prefer Coca-Cola as your beverage of choice then you may not be as excited as the consumers of Pepsi, but for those of us who prefer the latter then it's time to tune in.

It appears that Japan is set to launch the Sakura flavor, which is the Japanese word for Cherry Blossom – the blooming tree that can be found all over the country come springtime.

Pepsi Sakura is set to launch in Japan on March 8. In the meantime, be sure to check out The Hundreds recreating Pepsi’s iconic advertising campaign.
