What does a sug­ary drink need more of?

Sugar, of course!

Don’t worry, Pepsi has you cov­ered.

The soda gi­ant is re­leas­ing a new salted caramel-flavoured drink in the U.S. just in time for the hol­i­days.

The com­pany de­scribes the pop as “an in­dul­gent new, lim­ited-time flavour which blends the re­fresh­ing taste of cola with a de­li­cious caramel fin­ish.”

Twit­ter users had a dif­fer­ent way of de­scrib­ing the cola.

“This tastes like wa­tery pepsi that some­one threw a sin­gle dirty caramel into,” one user wrote.

“My palate wasn’t ready for the sub­tle hint of eat­ing ROLOS in a zoo bath­room,” added an­other.

“I just bought a Salted Caramel Pepsi. It tastes like some­one put a pan­cake cov­ered in syrup in a

Pepsi bot­tle,” an­other user re­sponded.

The new Pepsi drink is part of a lim­ited-edi­tion hol­i­day line from Pep­siCo, which also in­cludes

Mtn Dew Hol­i­day Brew — yum!

The com­pany’s Ja­panese coun­ter­part also re­leased a Christ­mas cola which ap­par­ently tastes like cake.

Pepsi says the white drink has a “sweet and sour straw­berry flavour” which is rem­i­nis­cent of tra­di­tional Ja­panese Christ­mas cakes.
