Maybe you’ve heard of a little thing called Peeps Flavored Pepsi? Which, as you may also know, is not called “Peepsi”. When this viral collaboration was announced yesterday, people kind of lost it, so when we got to try it out for ourselves, we knew we had to share our findings with all of you. It turns out the drink tastes exactly the way you’d expect … but it’s also extremely baffling.
We should start this review by saying that you can’t actually buy cans of this product in stores. You will need to win Pepsi and Peeps sweepstakes to get your hands on it. So just in case you can’t try it for yourself consider me as your guide to how this product tastes.
The soda comes in three mini cans inspired by the colors of three popular Peeps shades: pink, yellow and purple. There is no difference between the cans in terms of flavor, but I found myself opening a can of yellow can because it screams classic Peeps. I was surprised to find that it mostly smelled like the typical Pepsi with a hint of sweetness… well, extra sweetness, I guess. This makes sense because when you take a sip for the first time you’re hit with the immediate surge of candy flavor, much like biting into a peep.
I’ve had the chance to try some of the other limited edition Pepsi flavors over the past few months, like Apple Pie and Hot Cocoa, and it had a similar vibe. It was marshmallow (obviously!), Sweet (obviously !!), and still had a lot of Pepsi brand flavor. Basically it tasted exactly what you’d probably imagine when you hear about Peeps Pepsi … like they melted down one of those iconic chicks and mixed it with cola. But somehow, when I drank it, I just couldn’t wrap myself in my brain. How did they make it taste like this Why does it exist? Are there Actually melted Peeps here? And maybe Lucky Charms marshmallows too ?? The world might never know.
While I’m all for a wacky food combo, this is the one I probably won’t sip every day just because it’s SO sweet. But like eating the whole ear of a bunny cake at Easter, it’s fun to have a few seasonal foods when they come, even if they’re a bit too much for your palate. At least you will have a lot of bragging rights.
