By |2022-05-19T10:33:23-05:00May 19th, 2022|Categories: Blogs|

Here's a weird food combo we didn't see coming:  For National Pizza Party Day tomorrow, Pepsi worked with the Culinary Institute of America and came up with Pepsi-infused PEPPERONI.  (???) They're calling it "Pepsi-Roni."  They say the Pepsi adds a "citrusy sweetness" to it.  New Yorkers can try it tomorrow at a pizza place in Lower Manhattan.  Then they're planning to offer it up in other cities soon, but haven't said where yet.  (Here's a photo.) For everyone who can't try it, they're doing two different pizza-related deals tomorrow:  You can get $5 off a DoorDash pizza order if you buy a Pepsi with it. And [...]
