Cherry blossom season is among us, and Japan has loads of ultra limited seasonal specials. We got our hands on lots of them and we’re trying them out in this week’s video. Though, I will say, Martina’s shoes aren’t a special that she will stop trying in a couple of weeks. It’s not like they will take the shoes back from her, while the Sakura flavored Starbucks, Baskin Robbins, and Pepsi are all going to be gone in a few weeks. And, to be honest, I really wanted Martina’s shoes for myself. They only make them in women’s though. I looked. I called the Nike Store. Why can’t dudes wear shoes with flowers on them, too? Those are totally badass shoes!
We tried some other Sakura flavored things that didn’t make it into this video as well. Red Bull has a Sakura flavored drink as well, and it, too, tastes better than the original. Doesn’t taste as chemically as usual. We also tried some Sakura flavored chips and holy crap were those awful. I don’t remember the name of them, though. We just got them and ate them and didn’t film it, but it was comparable to the Strawberry Curry flavor. Just nasty fruity ass.
And though Sakura flavored food and shoes (flavored shoes?) are already out, the Cherry blossoms are not out yet. They should be hitting Tokyo late March. We might be out and about at that time, now that I’m looking at our schedule. Ah! I hope we don’t miss it. Supposedly it gets really crazy the weekend that cherry blossoms are in full bloom, and people go to the parks super early to claim a seat for the day. I wonder if we’ll do the same. Hmm. Well, here’s a map if you’re in Japan and want to know when the Cherry Blossoms are in full bloom:
Hell, Sakura stuff should be all year round. It’s really great tasting, and it’s super pretty. If you get a chance while you’re here, try some of it out. It’s surprisingly great!
Otherwise, if you feel like some extra laughs, here are some extra scenes that didn’t make the final cut:
