Typically, it's the sweets category or occasionally the cereal aisle that see the effect of the holiday season the most. But thanks to Pepsi, the soft drinks category will also be getting a bit of a festive makeover. Ready or not, Influensters, Salted Caramel Pepsi is here to intrigue those taste buds—and potentially leave you scratching your head while you're at it.

Salted Caramel Pepsi

The new flavor officially launched last week in grocery stores across the country for a limited time. (We already spotted it online at Target for in-store purchase!) And although this new flavor does come right in time for the holidays, it is still a bit of a puzzler. Now, we all know salted caramel is a popular flavor choice from ice cream to liqueur to even chips, but this is the first time we've spotted it in a soft drink. And although candy-flavored soda is something we never thought we'd see, we're willing to give anything sweet a taste test—once.

Of course, Pepsi is notorious for funky flavors overseas, but here in the US, it's pretty tame. Needless to say, this has many left wondering what could be next! Only time will tell.

What do you think of this new Pepsi flavor? Would you try it? Share below!
