- Japan is launching a new "clear" Coca-Cola edition.
- The new soft drink is colorless, clear, and lemon-flavored.
- Coca-Cola Japan manufactured the drink by leaving out the caramel flavor.
With a water-like appearance, "Coca-Cola Clear" is a zero-calorie, lemon-flavored drink, according to the manufacturer.
Coca-Cola Japan came up with the concept of leaving out the caramel ingredients that give the drink its distinct color and developed it for a year before the US headquarters gave the idea the green light.
More than 50 samples and flavors were experimented with before the decision to go with lemon was made.
