(Newser) – Pepsi and Cheetos: a match made in snack-food heaven. But what about Pepsi-flavored Cheetos? If that seems like what you'd expect from a country salivating over breakfast waffles, we have some bad news for you: The Frito-Lay flavor does indeed exist as of last month ... in Japan. And the Los Angeles Times got this Cheetos-crushing reply from a PepsiCo rep about the prospect of the flavor hitting US shelves: "The answer is no."

What are we missing out on? A Cheeto that tastes like Pepsi (the cheese powder has been swapped for cola powder) and, more intriguingly, actually fizzes in your mouth, at least according to a review on the Impulsive Buy blog. "Not like crazy Pop Rocks fizzing, but there is some definite popping and crackling," writes the reviewer, who describes the first taste as "very citrusy, almost sour." USA Today notes that the flavor will only be available for a limited time in Japan. (That country was also the lucky one to see this crazy-decadent Wendy's burger.)

my buddy's step-sister makes $82 an hour on the laptop. She has been fired for 7 months but last month her pay check was $15648 just working on the laptop for a few hours. Read more on this ,,,,, www.jobs34.Com

Sounds disgusting. I don;t like my pepsi to go 'crunch'. And I'm not a huge Cheetos fan either.

"If that seems like what you'd expect from a country salivating over breakfast waffles" Aren't all waffles inherently breakfast waffles?
