Soft drinks have inspired all manner of meals over the years, especially when it comes to infusing the flavor of cola into sweet treats, with Pepsi announcing that it will be debuting its first-ever official donut that incorporates the beloved taste of the popular drink. The donut will be available exclusively at the Inglewood, California location of Randy's Donuts, with the donut being served in a combo box that also includes a 20 oz. Pepsi. The Pepsi ColaCream Combo Box launches this Sunday, January 23rd, and comes with a QR code that fans can scan in hopes of unlocking a variety of prizes.

Per press release, "Reminiscent of the nostalgic soda shop flavors of the past, Pepsi-Cola and cream is the perfect flavor combination for cola lovers everywhere, complete with the signature Pepsi globe and a surprise sprinkling of pop rocks inside to provide an additional burst of flavor and fun.

"Fans who order the Pepsi ColaCream Combo Box can scan the QR code on specially marked boxes for a chance to win items like limited-edition Pepsi x Randy's Donuts merch, Randy's Donuts gift cards, a year's worth of Pepsi, or even custom-made Pepsi x Randy's Donuts sneakers designed by artist Chad Carothers. Fans can also score a bonus entry by sharing the exclusive AR filter on Instagram with #PepsiRandysSweepstakes.

"To celebrate the limited-edition donut, Pepsi is also taking over the giant iconic Randy's rooftop donut in Inglewood known throughout Los Angeles, in pop culture, and around the world. Fans can purchase the limited-time Pepsi ColaCream Combo Box for $5 from January 23rd to February 20th."
