Earlier this year, Pepsi had its loyal fans up in arms when it unleashed upon the world a hybrid of flavors unlike we鈥檇 ever seen before: Pepsi Fire. Adding a cinnamon taste to its regular flavor, the drink gave the OG flavor a 鈥渟picy twist鈥 for summer. Now, the soda company is launching its newest spin on the old classic with a brand new flavor for fall. Meet Pepsi Salted Caramel.

That鈥檚 right! The same essence Starbucks pairs with mocha to bring you one of its beloved fall treats is now being paired with the fizzy goodness of Pepsi for what is sure to be a tasting experience.

Pepsi described the drink to TODAY as having 鈥渢he refreshing taste of cola with a delicious caramel finish.鈥 As Chad Stubbs, vice president of Pepsi鈥檚 marketing team, told the outlet via email, 鈥淪alted caramel is a popular flavor that consumers are looking for 鈥 and [are] delighted to find 鈥 especially during the holidays.鈥

While we鈥檝e yet to get our hands on the just-released bottle, the TODAY crew described it as having a minimal but sweet aftertaste. Thus far, customer reactions have been mixed, with some super into the new combo, and others鈥 not so much.
