The reviews are mixed, but a majority of folks enjoy the newest flavor as it is surprisingly tasty. “When I first learned that Pepsi Salted Caramel was a thing, my initial reaction was, ‘Yuck,'” said TODAY’s lifestyle news editor Shane Lou. But after trying a sip, “he changed his mind,” shared the Today Show.

If Pepsi is your favorite, then you definitely don’t want to miss trying this one out. “Upon first sip, Salted Caramel Pepsi tastes pretty much like regular Pepsi. There’s nothing wildly unusual or inoffensive about it, but it does leave you with a sweet aftertaste that’s slightly reminiscent of Werther’s candy,” shared today.com.

The newest flavor made its debut November 6th in stores across the nation. With all kinds of snack offerings being given a little kick these days, from lattes to chips and candy and more, why not add a little flavor to an already favorite go-to-soda of many. TODAY show tasters had a chance to preview the new flavor ahead of release, and many noted that what was lacking was more of the salty taste, but as far as unusual flavors go, it’s worth a try.
