Pepsi Cocoa Cola

After receiving more than 2,000 retweets, Pepsi will launch a 'Cocoa' Cola from their test kitchen. 

In a tweet, the company said the drink will be a way to say goodbye to the "worst year ever."

The drink is described as a "delicious blend of cocoa (and hint of marshmallow) mixed with Pepsi cola," according to a company spokesperson. 

 

"There is nothing more classic than hot cocoa on a winter day, but this year has been anything but typical," Todd Kaplan, Pepsi's vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "So why not bring together the delicious taste of a Pepsi with the delicious, wintery taste of chocolate and marshmallow and bring some unexpected joy to our fans this season??"

There's no word as to when the drink will hit shelves, or whether it will be available in South Africa.

This has been an interesting year for soda drinkers. In October, Coca-Cola announced they would discontinue 200 brands in order to focus on bigger brands. Tab and Coke Life were some of the drinks that will be pulled from shelves in the future.
