Looking for a way to beat the summer heat? Try this new fizzy lifting drink from (where else?) Japan: Surging Eel! Yeah, eel soda. Yummy. It’s a lot like Amp and other Extreme!!! sodas here in the U.S.:

“It’s mainly for men who are exhausted by the summer’s heat,” Hayashi said of the beverage, believed to be the first mass-produced eel drink in Japan.

The fizzy, yellow-colored drink contains extracts from the head and bones of eel and five vitamins — A, B1, B2, D and E — contained in the fish.

I find it interesting that it is “believed to be the first mass-produced eel drink in Japan” because I’d like to think something like that would be pretty definitive. Seriously, how does one forget Pepsi Eel Clear? Or Cherry Vanilla Eel Diet Dr. Pepper?

Still, Surging Eel has to taste better than Mt. Dew.
