One of the season’s highlights is the return of Pepsi® Maple Syrup Cola, a flavor that captured the imagination of thousands when it was first released as a limited edition. This unique beverage, blending the rich taste of maple syrup with Pepsi’s iconic caramel notes, will be available starting April 1 at participating International House of Pancakes restaurants nationwide. For those seeking an extra touch of indulgence, the cola is also offered as a float with vanilla ice cream.
