Relax. This isn’t a big deal. Pepsi added some cinnamon to their cola for a special edition soda called Pepsi Fire. I did the responsible thing and bought a bottle on day one so you wouldn’t have to.


You can still buy your own bottle and make up your own mind, but I’m going to ruin the surprise for you. Are you ready? Here it comes. The surprise is…

There’s no surprise. It tastes like Pepsi but with a bit of cinnamon at the finish. It’s sweet, it’s acidic, and the cinnamon actually goes well as a prominent flavor among other herb/fruit notes in the cola. I couldn’t tell you where the “Fire” comes in, though. Maybe if you’re one of those people that ice your tongue after eating ketchup, but otherwise it isn’t spicy at all.


If you’re hesitant about trying it, don’t be. It’s fine. I’ll give it a 6.3 out of 10 on my rating scale.
