Pepsi, who apparently did not learn their lesson from Crystal Pepsi, has just collaborated with Peeps to create a marshmallow-flavored soda. So, if that was on your 2021 bingo card along with Cinnamon Toast shrimp, you’ve just won. What, we have no idea.
The canary yellow, hot pink, and neon blue 7.5-oz cans of the “unique” Pepsi flavor are here just in time for Easter. But the spring sodas are only available if you win their #HangingWithMyPEEPS social media contest, so if you’re trying to find where to buy it you won’t find a listing of stores anywhere.
What you will however, discover, is how many people on Twitter are dismayed that the brand decided to go with the catchy name “Pepsi x Peeps” instead of, we dunno… Peepsi?
Unlike regular Peeps, we don’t recommend heating up the can until it explodes in the microwave. While you’re waiting for your Peeps to burst, though, you can read these funny tweets.
1. Now, that? That’s a good idea.
2. Honestly, kinda same.
3. Well, you can’t please everyone.
4. When it doubt, blame the lawyers.

Us today: David, check Twitter. 🤦♂️ #PepsiXPeeps
