Free Apple Pie Soda

If you’re unsure if you will like it or not, why not snag a free bottle? Pepsi is asking for your baking fails. Show off your baking blunders on social media by using the hashtag #PepsiApplePieChallenge and tagging Pepsi’s Twitter or TikTok accounts. The only stipulation is that you have to be following their social media accounts to win. The first 1,500 people will score a bottle.

According to the description on the bottle, it tastes very similar to an apple pie. It has tones of cinnamon, buttery crust, and fresh apple. Pepsi hopes to give the people who can’t bake a taste of comfort and nostalgia.

The New Pepsi Flavor

You may be thinking that this flavor is ridiculous. For people who can’t bake, this is your best bet to get the holiday classic desert.

Pepsi VP, Marketing Todd Kaplan told Geek Tyrant about the new release. “Failing at baking – especially this year – is nothing to be ashamed of, and we’re celebrating those amateur bakers that are truly trying their best during a unique holiday season,” he said. “With Pepsi Apple Pie, we’re providing a refreshingly delicious twist on the traditional slice of apple pie, while making sure people have some fun and don’t take themselves too seriously in the process.”

“With travel limited and normal Thanksgiving plans scrapped, many are confronting the reality that they’ll be in charge of making some daunting traditional Thanksgiving dishes,” a statement reads. “Pepsi is recognizing the amateur bakers who, despite the best intentions, can’t seem to get their family recipe right, and are setting off a fire alarm or two in the process. America’s most iconic dessert, apple pie, is a staple of the fall season; but a lot can go wrong in the hours it takes to make and bake.”
