A Japanese company has created a limited-edition eel-flavored soda as a refreshing summer treat.

Produced by Kimura Inryou, a company based in Shizuoka Prefecture, which is famous for its unagi (eel), the drink is made of eel extract and bottles the salty, fishy, savory flavor of grilled, barbecue eel in a fizzy cola.

The novelty drink will be sold at highway rest stops and gift shops throughout the prefecture and will also be made available at its online store for 200 JPY ($1.60 USD) as of July 21.

Other eyebrow-raising soda flavors out of Japan include salty watermelon, curry and iced cucumber.
