I generally don’t like Pepsi, and I generally don’t like Peeps. Yet here I am. Social pressure has grown to such a state that I spend my hard earned money on something that I know I won’t enjoy in order to provide this service to the rest of the internet. To satisfy your curiosity, I can confirm that Pepsi does in fact have a limited edition Peeps flavored cola. I can also confirm that it does not taste very good.
If you decide to venture down the same flavor journey that I did, you’ll probably notice four things in very quick succession. First, you’ll taste the very sweet but slightly bitter flavor of Pepsi. This will be familiar, and you shouldn’t be alarmed. About 1/4 second later you’ll taste something very noticeably artificial. This is a guess, but I believe that this is the flavor note provided by the florescent sprinkles adorning a Peep. It tastes like food coloring. Very soon after that you’ll taste something reminiscent to marshmallow. Not a good marshmallow, but a marshmallow nonetheless. Lastly, you’ll taste what I discerned as a burnt sugar flavor. That one stays with you for a bit until you take another hit and start that little rollercoaster all over again.
I can’t recommend this soda. The label is cute, but the drink is gross. I even ate a couple of Peeps so that I could compare one to the other. It doesn’t taste like Peeps, it’s just a new kind of bad.
Also, did you know that Peeps originally had wings? If you want more Peeps history, go ahead and check out Wikipedia.
Somehow they managed to make pepsi even worse than it already is
