IHOP Will Serve Its Viral Pepsi Maple Syrup Cola in Restaurants


In the year 2022, a great injustice was inflicted on the world. And by “world” I mean “me”, although I imagine many others feel the same way. In March of that year Pepsi announced that it would only give away 2,000 cans of an all-new flavor. The cola company had partnered with IHOP for a limited-edition maple syrup cola. I, like almost 100% of the people on this planet, did not receive a can of what I imagined was “delicious tree nectar”. Now the two companies are finally atoning for this terrible mistake by offering something even better. IHOP's Pepsi Cola Maple Syrup is now available in restaurants as a fountain soda.

IHOP has brought its highly coveted Pepsi Maple Syrup Cola at participating restaurants nationwide. Only, this time it's like a top-source soda option instead of coming in a can. The drink is part of the chain's expanded iconic menu. Other new items include Homemade Cinn-A-Stack and Cupcake Smoothies, Kids' French Toast Sticks, a Watermelon Sprinkler, Chicken Sandwiches, and Silky Oatmeal Cookie Oat Cream.

They all sound good, but I haven't spent two years mad about never trying them like I have “a perfect combination of maple syrup-flavored indulgence with the crisp, refreshing caramel notes of Pepsi.” The company also claims that the soda is a perfect vanilla float option.

I am very happy to test this claim. Maybe even two (dozen) times if it looks legit.

However, neither I nor my fellow aggrieved diners will have much time to do so. The Pepsi Maple Syrup Cola arrived at participating locations beginning April 1st. But it will only be available for a “limited time”. That is unless we collectively show why releasing only 2,000 cans was such a terrible injustice in the first place. If we make our voices/stomachs heard, they will know how much they hurt us before.
