Just when you think you've heard everything comes cola-infused pepperoni by Pepsi. My Italian grandmothers are turning over in their graves. But this is real and the Pepsi-Roni pizza launched Friday, May 20.

My first thought when I saw this was that someone spilled their Pepsi on their pizza and thus a trend was born but alas, this actually came from the Culinary Institute of America.

What they did was "replace the pepperoni's usual water content with a reduction of Pepsi's zero sugar resulting in "a delightfully sweet and citrusy Pepsi kick [that] complements the salty, fatty, umami flavors of smoked pepperoni."

The Pepsi-roni pizza was rolled out for one day only in New York and now the soda company will try Los Angeles, Miami, Detroit, and Chicago. So far no plans for New Jersey. Thank God.

So I started thinking if people will put Pepsi in the pepperoni, what else would they do? Especially now  that we have legalized recreational marijuana, this could lead to some really weird food combinations like these;
