Don’t let the blue flames fool you. Unless you think blue flames imply the refreshment inside is cold with a kick of cinnamon deliciousness. Because Pepsi Fire is indeed cold and refreshing with a kick of cinnamon.

I usually am on top of things like new variations of my favorite products, but oddly enough I had never heard of the subject of this post. Nope. I found out about Pepsi Fire from a web developer friend of mine who invited me to try it after he scored some free cases of it from some random promotion Pepsi was doing to introduce the brand to the masses at large.

I’m not a soda drinker, but, when I do, I drink Pepsi. And, hey, free soda is free soda. Now, with a name like Pepsi Fire I had no idea what to expect, but I was hoping that it would somehow infer a liquid refreshment with a spicy kick of some sort. Something akin to what you might expect watered down red hots (remember those? Of course you do…) might taste like.

Well, it was good, but it definitely didn’t live up to the expectations that a name like Pepsi Fire would give you. After all, it’s Pepsi, which is awesome. And Fire, which is also awesome. So, you’d think it would be a tandem made in heaven and that it would be a bold assault on your taste buds that they never saw coming.

Now, don’t get me wrong. I could definitely see myself teaming Pepsi Fire up with some chicken wings, nachos and pizza. It’s definitely a soft drink that will improve your eating enjoyment. That said, it definitely does not taste the way you would think a drink called Pepsi Fire would taste.

A better name would have perhaps been Pepsi Spice. Then again, maybe it’s just me. I’m just a guy in a man cave musing about anything and everything I find man cave muse worthy. You’re welcome, Pepsi Co.
