If you’re looking for the next step in junk food evolution, the people at Frito-Lay have you covered. The company has a product so weird, it actually makes Taco Bell’s Doritos line of tacos seem almost boring. Would you eat Pepsi-flavored Cheetos?
The snack is in stores in Japan, and someone over at The Impulsive Buy got their hands on a bag to taste test. Instead of being coated in their normal cheese-like powder the snacks are covered in a so-called cola powder, which attempts to replicate the taste of Pepsi.
Unfortunately, the reviewer says it’s a little too lemony and leaves a strange aftertaste, not necessarily something you’d long for. However, they do note that the powder fizzes a little to match drinking a soda. It’s a nice little touch.
For those in the United States waiting for them to appear at their local grocery store, don’t hold your breath. A spokesman for PepsiCo shot down that possibility when asked about it by the LA Times. “The answer is no.”
We’ll see what the internet has to say about that.
