The Pepsi-Flavored Cheetos Make for a Strange Marriage of Taste

Although Cheetos and soda pop go hand-in-hand when it comes to junk food heaven, the Pepsi-flavored Cheetos are something else entirely. A strange combination of flavors, to say the least, it treats the combination as though they were some sort of peanut butter and jelly partnership. Perhaps to some, that is exactly what the Pepsi-flavored Cheetos will feel like. To others, not so much.

Not surprisingly, the Pepsi-flavored Cheetos have been released commercially in Japan. According to Steve of The Impulsive Buy, a man who took it upon himself to thoroughly review the Pepsi-flavored Cheetos, the results are documented with mixed feelings. He writes, "Overall, this is a pretty accurate flavor recreation. It’s an impressive effort to be sure. That said, I don’t like them. I could only get through a few of them. They’ve got a lot going on and are kind of intense. A few tweaks to the levels of citrus and cola and these could be passable."
