Pepsi is hoping some will really love it as it unveiled its latest flavor, which has been influenced by a seasonal classic – hot chocolate.
According to a tweet, the soft drink company plans to kick off the new year with Pepsi ‘Cocoa’ Cola, a “concept from the Pepsi Test Kitchen.” The drink is said to taste like “a delicious blend of cocoa (with a hint of marshmallow) mixed with Pepsi-Cola,” CNET mentioned.
Why did Pepsi decide to make this flavor?
Well, the familiar ‘Cocoa’ Cola was created at the request of Pepsi fans after the brand posted a tweet: “What’s sweeter than saying“ goodbye ”to the worst year ever? Pepsi“ Cocoa ”Cola – the latest concept from Pepsi’s test kitchen.
The tweet mentioned: “Want to try and get your hands on? 2021 RTs and we’ll make a batch. #PepsiCocoaCola.”
Sure enough, after the tweet was posted, the soft drink maker was able to collect the needed retweet for 2021, even paying about 4,800 as of Friday evening.
Although fans appear eager to sample the chocolate-and-marshmallow soda, Pepsi has not shared the exact date when the drink will be launched, or where consumers might hope to get it.
