What... even is this??
That's how most consumers are reacting to PEPSI's new flavor, Salted Caramel.
But while we're not so sure about the oddly un-PEPSI-like idea, some who've tried it are already saying they like it better than regular PEPSI! For real!
Of course others are just too grossed out by the salty dessert soda, which according to PEPSI "blends the refreshing taste of cola with a delicious caramel finish" to even try...
Ch-ch-check some of the strongest Twitter reactions (below):

Can you think of a better way to celebrate?
Bill O'Reilly. Sean Hannity. Alex Jones. Derick Dillard.
Sure, Jill Duggar's husband may not have earned a spot on the list of the far-right's most emotionally unstable mouthpieces just yet, but he's determined to get there some day.
And like any good professional bully, D-Dill has already chosen a sufficiently vulnerable target at which to direct all of his frustrations over his own intellectual shortcomings.
Presumably acting on instructions issued to him when Jesus appeared in his Chick-Fil-A Hash Brown Scramble Bowl, Derick has launched a one-man war against his fellow TLC reality star Jazz Jennings.
Derick first attacked Jennings in an unprovoked Instagram tirade back in August.
Dillard was slammed on Twitter by folks from all walks of life who were put off by the idea of a grown man attacking a teenage girl, but the father or two carried on in his quest to ... teach a young girl how hateful the world really is?
We're not really sure what Derick was hoping to accomplish.
In fact, we're guessing Derick couldn't tell you what Derick was hoping to accomplish.
But since his bigotry briefly earned the attention of people who hadn't thought about the Duggars since Josh was exposed as a molester, Derick is carrying on with his attack.
In response to a fan who recently pointed out that many of Dillard's tweets and blog posts come off as "hateful," Dillard replied:
"I pity Jazz, 4 those who take advantage of him in order 2 promote their agenda, including the parents who allow these kinds of decisions 2 be made by a child."
"It’s sad that ppl would use a juvenile this way. Again, nothing against him, just unfortunate what’s on tv these days."
Replying to those who have pointed out that Derick appears to be relentlessly harassing a girl he's never met who did nothing to provoke him, Dillard added:
"Never bullied anyone, just said I didn't agree with what is being propagated on my TV."
You would think he was talking about the fact that there's a TLC series about a family who harbored a child molester (It's true ! We looked it up!) but no, Derick is still going in on Jazz.
He went on to argue that Jennings is simply too young to make decisions for himself.
In fact, he argues that all minors are incapable of making decisions, which is why he doesn't send his children to school--they might get a head full of ideas and start making choices without his supervision!
We wish we were joking:
"Jazz is being taken advantage of, as part of a larger agenda," Derick argues.
"I hate seeing him used this way," he adds. "Is it good for the government to force kids to go to school before they are old enough to decide how they feel about it?"
Dontcha see? The guv'mint's sending kids to school and brainwashing them with Caitlyn Jenner propaganda!
And don't get Derick started on the moon landing!
For her part, Jennings has yet to reply to Dillard's latest bid for attention, which is typically the best way to deal with bullies.
Besides, she already said everything she needed to in response to his earlier tweets:
"Every day I experience cyber-bullying, but I keep sharing my story. Today was no different," she wrote.
Further evidence that at 16, Jazz Jennings has attained a level of maturity that Derick Dillard can only dream of.

2017 is a wild ride. The perfidious predators in Hollywood are getting exposed, but we all live in perpetual anxiety that the world will be destroyed because of an impulsive lunatic. That's ... all kind of depressing.
But Kylie Jenner's pregnancy, bizarre and unexpected though it may be, is a welcome distraction.
For us. Apparently, Kylie's finally reached the point where the realities of her condition are starting to freak her out.
Though Kylie and her family are still, for reasons unknown and perhaps beyond the comprehension of us mere mortals, refusing to actually acknowledge it ...
The whole world knows that Kylie is pregnant.
We can only assume that her comical efforts to hide her baby bump are a prelude to some "big reveal" that Kris Jenner dreamed up.
(That woman really knows how to turn any unfortunate situation into a huge source of success; in another life, Kris Jenner might have conquered the world by now)
Of course, some are paranoid that Kylie Jenner is faking her pregnancy. Her motives for that would be unclear. Maybe she's trolling fans or trying to get revenge against the people who report on her life by stringing them along.
That said, people who've spotted Kylie Jenner say that she looks pregnant. As well she ought to -- she's reportedly due in just a few months.
And it looks like that looming due date, and the changes to her body, are finally getting to Kylie.
Remember, she's only 20, and she got pregnant at 19 with a rebound guy she'd been seeing for maybe a month.
There's a lot to freak out about.
A source tells RadarOnline that Kylie Jenner is over her pregnancy's honeymoon phase.
"Honestly, Kylie is just an emotional wreck right now."
Well, that sure isn't mincing any words, is it?
"She does not know what to do or [whom] to trust, and she is just so vulnerable right now."
Is the issue about worrying that a "friend" will snap a photo of her baby bump? that could keep her in isolation.
Or maybe Kylie's having trouble confiding her feelings in people. That could be worse, and much more isolating.
"Her age is really starting to show."
You know, it's funny -- usually, when we talk about someone's age showing, we talk about a teacher talking about how handsome Errol Flynn was we talk about someone not knowing who Ariana Grande is.
In this case, it's not old age that's allegedly showing -- it's Kylie's youth and immaturity.
Sure, people have said "oh, she'll make a great mom" and praised Kylie for being mature or whatever ... but that's just something that people say.
According to that same source, Kylie's feeling scared at the moment.
"She does not know how to be an adult, let alone be a mother."
Remember, Kylie is set to give birth well before she's old enough to legally drink alcohol in the US.
Yeah, alcohol and pregnancy don't mix, but the point is that Kylie is really young for someone who's becoming a mother. And she's basically never had responsibilities in her life aside from appearing on a reality series.
Other women become moms at her age, but most of those other women have had real jobs before and probably have more realistic ideas of what parenting entails.
But RadarOnline's source says that Kylie is feeling isolated.
"She’s feeling so alone!"
Now, all of that sounds believable.
But here's where it starts to sounds like RadarOnline's source is reporting from a parallel universe where everything is all topsy-turvy:
"Kylie is trying to rely on Kris, but Kris has made it clear she simply does not have the time to deal with it."
That ... doesn't sound like the Kris Jenner whom we have all come to know and love (and fear).
Kris Jenner ignoring her youngest daughter doesn't sound plausible. Kris Jenner ignoring her pregnant daughter sounds like someone's fever-dream.
There's no way that Kris Jenner is unwilling to help Kylie through her pregnancy and her transition into motherhood.
But that doesn't preclude Kylie from feeling like Kris doesn't care. Feelings, strange as this may sound, are sometimes less than rational.
Kylie's dealing with more right now than she's ever dealt with before.
She has a huge support network available to her; we just hope that she takes advantage of it.
I assume whenever Demi Rose arrives at a party she gets one of those slow motion entrances we normally only see in 90's teen movies.
Italian mystery models, nude scenes in comic book movies, and more!
Rome was not built in a day, as they say, and if Ariel Winters keeps up with the gym routine that she has been logging then she will have her own colosseum in no time.
More or less, yeah.
They say there's no justice in this world.
If you like your girls slouchy, Kristen Stewart is the girl of your dreams!
That dress makes Isla Fisher look like she has two world record holding plums growing on her chest.
The folks over at Lucasfilm, Emperor Kennedy included, must be really impressed with the job Rian Johnson did directing and writing The Last Jedi, because they're looking...
Out of all the Spice Girls that I could choose to take to court I think I would put Scary Spice at the bottom of the list.
Penelope Cruz, the ladies of The Girlfriend Experience, and the orgies of Westworld!
You know how Smallville star Allison Mack's been outed as an alleged sex-slave cult master, second or third in command of the whole thing? We didn't want to believe the allegations but … you have to see this.
In the video below, you can see for yourself how Allison Mack raves about Jness, one of NXIVM's "empowerment" programs, in an effort to use her celebrity status to recruit more members.
And that's not even the first time that she's ranted, on camera, about how "wonderful" Jness is.
Allison Mack is accused of being an extremely high-ranking member of NXIVM's alleged sex-slave cult, DOS.
According to extensive allegations about NXIVM and DOS, women who join the cult surrender nude or incriminating photos of themselves that could be used for blackmail, go on starvation diets, and are required to take cold showers.
Most sensationally, as first revealed by The New York Times' expose, the women are branded in their pubic region with the initials of Keith Raniere.
NXIVM presents itself as a self-help organization with a hierarchy, but was accused of being a pyramid scheme of sorts for ages — well before the abuses within were revealed.
The expose that came out this year detailed how the women are subjected to corporal punishment if they fail to do sufficient recruiting on their own.
To make matters more disturbing, Allison Mack is now believed to be Keith Raniere's second- or third-in-command, and has been described as "both a perpetrator and a victim" of the brainwashing and abuse within the alleged NXIVM cult.
The video below, in which Allison Mack actively promotes NXIVM's "empowerment" program, Jness, is pretty alarming in a number of ways. But she's been speaking Jness' praises on camera for years.
In a 2013 Q&A, Allison Mack had a lot to say when "a fan" asked the "totally not planted" question of what it's like to work for Jness.
She spews a lot of word salad — that is, she uses a lot of words without saying much that is concrete or sensible.
"Working for Jness I think is the most gratifying thing that I've ever done."
Again, this is an actress who starred on a TV show that ran for 10 seasons.
"It's the most challenging thing I've ever done because it consists of working with a group of people in a way that is totally interdependent."
She tries to define what she means by that.
"Meaning: we're all working together and no one is ever punished and no one is ever told that they're wrong and they're bad."
That seems at odds with everything that we've heard about NXIVM.
"The most important thing in working for Jness is relationships in Jness."
That's something that you'd expect to hear from a cult member about a cult. If somebody's discouraged from having close friends who aren't part of their religion or self-help group, something is wrong.
"And I'm not used to that, I'm used to the objective being met, I'm used to having, like, strict hard fast deadlines and lots of fear and punishment if I don't get it right."
What does she mean by "lots of fear and punishment," exactly? Was there some scary stuff going on behind the scenes on Smallville if actors forgot their lines?
We somehow doubt it.
"And in working for Jness, there isn't any of that, so it comes purely from a place of self-motivation and self-direction."
Again, part of the recent allegations is a claim that "slaves" who fail to properly obey Allison Mack are subjected to corporal punishment.
The creepy, cult-like language increases … in fact, Allison Mack is starting to feel a lot like NXIVM's answer to Scientology's golden boy, Tom Cruise.
"And that is really difficult. But I would say that working for Jness is the most satisfying and purposeful thing that I've ever done."
"Watching the women who are in Jness completely transform and evolve in a way that is so pure is such a privilege."
Now, talking about "transforming" is innocuous on its own, as lots of people talk about that when they talk about improving their lives.
But using the word "pure" in this context is … a red flag. It's just creepy language that's probably been repeated over and over.
"And really literally seeing people's life paths completely turn … where in one moment, they felt that this was all that they had and all that they could do, and all of a sudden they come through Jness and they start working with us and in our community."
When someone is branded, fearful of punishment, and subjected to a starvation diet, we'd imagine that they do seem to "change" pretty suddenly.
"It's like a whole 'nother life is born out of their new experience of themselves. And that's an incredibly satisfying, gratifying thing to do."
"I think it's challenging because I think Jness is an organization that looks to all participants to be 100% responsible for themselves and for their lives."
"So it makes it hard to blame people for mistakes that are made when you're always looking at your own responsibility and participation in the situation."
That is barely intelligible.
"But that's just hard for my ego and my pride."
It sounds like Allison Mack has been told that some of her original thoughts are just the products of ego and pride and need to be suppressed for her own well-being.
That's just a guess, though.
"Once I started the program I realized what I was looking for wasn’t a relationship, it was an experience about myself and in my life."
Well, allegedly seeking out sex partners and ordering them to Keith Raniere's bed, which is what the claims say is one of her responsibilities, sure sounds like an experience.
"And once I understand how to have that experience about myself and in my life for me, then I can have the relationship I want or not, but I’m okay in either circumstance."
That's just an overly complicated way of saying "I need to know myself before I date," but … there seems to be a lot more behind the scenes.
"Going forward into my life from this place with that recognition I feel like the possibilities are endless and there’s no fear of shooting what I want for ideally, there’s not reason to settle because any way I look at it I’m going to be good, and that’s awesome."
If you're noticing that she's using words and phrases in strange ways, a lot of cults have insulated language habits that they use to exclude outsiders, reinforce their ideas, and forge a sense of belonging.
"We have a much more joyful and a much more efficient existence."
Yeah, that sounds like a line that aliens would say right before they extract your brain.
"Working for Jness is grounding and satisfying and humbling and wonderful."
Again, we don't think that Allison Mack is deliberately behaving in a predatory manner.
There's nothing sinister to her intentions.
Accusations suggest that she was recruited at a vulnerable point in her life and probably started off in the "normal" self-help parts of NXIVM, and it's claimed that she was gradually brainwashed like the others — and, because of her celebrity status, promoted.
As you'll see in this video, though she's always been a slender gal, Allison Mack looks shockingly gaunt.
We're not body-shaming her or concern-trolling, we're just alarmed by the starvation diets that have been reported to go on within NXIVM. It's claimed that Allison Mack consumes only 500 to 800 calories a day.
Though Allison Mack is accused of perpetrating abuse to other cult members, we have to wonder where — after brainwashing — accountability begins and ends.
