You might have learned that Hot Cheetos frappes are a thing now. They’re definitely not for everyone, especially those with a sweet tooth.
Pepsi has introduced a salted caramel-flavored variant to its holiday mix, and to get you in a celebratory mood, you’ll probably want to drizzle it over the brand’s recently announced cake-flavored cola.
PepsiCo describes that the limited edition flavor “blends the refreshing taste of cola with a delicious caramel finish.” It's also claimed to contain less sugar than the original soda.
“Salted caramel is a popular flavor that consumers are looking for—and delighted to find—especially during the holidays,” Chad Stubbs, the Vice President of Marketing at Pepsi, tells TODAY.
“We see it across food and beverages, from yogurt, to bagels, to tea!” Now, Pepsi has the cola-fications to bring the well-loved flavor to its sodas.
How does it taste? According to a lifestyle news editor at TODAY, it’s “not bad at all.”
“The caramel flavor isn’t strong, but it’s apparent enough that it’ll give you a sweet aftertaste. If Pepsi is your cola of choice, it’s worth giving the salted caramel flavor a shot.”
‘Salted Caramel’ Pepsi is available in stores across the US for a limited time.

New Pepsi Salted Caramel is surprisingly not gross. I thought it would taste too desserty but the flavors here actually go quite well with cola. It largely retains most of its Pepsiness, with an identifiable caramel flavor and yes, a bit of saltiness. Pepsi also used sucralose in this to reduce the actual sugars from 1 million grams down to only 44g per bottle (only!) Doesn’t even have an artificial aftertaste. I would buy this again if I drank regular soda, but I don’t. You can watch the first taste test in my Snapchat story, until you can’t. (👻: junkbanter)
