It might be that deep down inside I'm a 19-year-old college student, but I really, really like Fireball Cinnamon Whisky. But I can't help the fact that I love the way it tastes.
But that doesn't mean I love everything cinnamon. No, no, no. Because all of the love that I have in my heart for Fireball can never change how I feel about Pepsi's latest concoction.
Cinnamon Pepsi. Or "Pepsi Fire," which is what they want you to call it. Don't give in.
Pepsi has never really been one to shy away from trying weird new flavors. I mean they did go out on a limb and make crystal Pepsi, you know that weird clear soda that tasted like normal Pepsi, but was...clear? Yeah that one. It seemed more like a one off marketing gimmick if anything but it does show they're not afraid to try new things. With all the competition in the soda market you have to take a few risks to get people to try you out.
Probably in an attempt to try and expunge the bad taste Kendall Jenner's ad left in everyone's mouths, Pepsi tried to go and get all West Jersey club on us and release a cinnamon-flavored soda beverage that sounds about as appetizing as drinking rusty tacks, in my opinion. But hey at least it'll leave you feeling like fresh breath.
What's interesting is that Pepsi Fire first debuted as a special edition Slurpee Flavor at 7-11 chains.
Which people, of course, posted to Instagram, probably because they couldn't believe it was real.
Pepsi confirmed the existence of their brand new flavor in an official press release.
Would you want to try the "hottest drink of the summer"? I mean, it'll probably mix really well with Fireball, so...
