Fizz the season of Pepsi Colachup!
Pepsi revealed their inaugural flavored dressing, named “Colachup,” as a tribute to Independence Day, on Tuesday.
The condiment is intended to serve as the concluding embellishment on a frankfurter, formulated with assistance from the Culinary Institute of America Consulting, a division of the institution.
Commencing with a Pepsi decrease, the condiment is mixed with components such as smoky tomatoes, a mixture of seasonings — especially cinnamon and oregano — and onions and ketchup, according to CNN Business, to form the tangy treat.
According to a statement, the special edition item showcases the “pleasant, tangy flavor” of the fizzy beverage.
“The distinctive flavors and vibrant citrus blend of Pepsi enhance the bright and tangy characteristics of ketchup, offsetting the smokiness of the hot dog,” David Kamen, head of customer satisfaction at CIA Consulting, expressed.
Regrettably, — or, for skeptics, maybe luckily — the condiment will be obtainable for just a single day on July 4th at a handful of baseball arenas throughout the nation, such as the Pepsi Lounge in Yankee Stadium.
It has also received the endorsement of Joey Chestnut, a competitive gobbler who maintains the global hot dog-devouring record, consuming a remarkable 76 Nathan’s Famous sausages and rolls in a span of 10 minutes in 2021.
Nevertheless, it appears that not all of Pepsi’s supporters had an identical response to the announcement.
“Jesus,” one individual on Twitter commented in reply to the statement on Pepsi’s authorized online platform. “Y’all need Jesus.”
Jesus. Y'all need Jesus.

Another individual couldn’t fathom the fact that the combination was actually occurring.
“This has to be a joke,” they said.
Some individuals seemed thrilled to experience the unique – and hard-to-find – sauce.
“I gotta get me some of that Pepsi Colachup,” a twitter user tweeted. “#BetterWithPepsi.”
One individual desired for the sauce to be made available for purchase at retail establishments.
“Drop it in Walmart or target,” a user offered.
Another seconded, “#BetterWithPepsi I would totally buy that! Is it in stores?? Online??”
Pepsi is not the sole food label to unveil its unique variation on a traditional recipe in the past few months.
During the month of May, Blue Bell ice cream disclosed a collaboration with Dr. Pepper to produce a fresh ice cream variety titled the Dr. Pepper float.
Nevertheless, the inception of the product caused a rift among enthusiasts, as few argued that it ought to have been crafted using sarsaparilla instead of the favored carbonated beverage.
In that identical month, Burger King also introduced a vibrant crimson Whopper to commemorate the June 2 debut of “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.”
