I don't really like Dr Pepper to begin with, so I bought one with a bad attitude. The mix of cherry and vanilla is nice, maybe a bit too sweet, but the aftertaste is still that thick prune juice flavor that I can't handle.

New - Dr. - Pepper - ? Whaaaat?

It is perfect as it is. The pinnacle of what a soft drink should be. Where did you find this "New" Dr. Pepper?

It's widely distributed now. (the fact that I stop at dozens of different truckstops and convenient stores each week, makes me sort of an expert on sodas, energy drinks and "new age" drinks)

Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper (both diet and regular)

It is the first in a series of "Soda Fountain Classics" brought to us by Dr Pepper.
Rumor has it that a chocolate version is next for Spring, and a spice for Fall.

SPICE sounds delicious! --- remember "like" brand of sodas... it was around in the early-mid 80's I believe... they had a spice version that rocked.


I've been keeping an eye out for the new Dr.P but haven't seen it here in the city yet (jewel, CVS, dominics). Can't wait to try it.

I've been getting into Cockta

I'm pretty sure it's the little ET guy that's doing it for me.
Croatian Cola Rocks........no seriously this stuff tastes like baby aspirin

Chocolate Dr. Pepper??!
Blech. That sounds horrible!! The spice one sounds equally bad, really. I'm not a fan of Dr. Pepper, anyway.

Someone just needs to bring out a good-tasting diet cherry cola. I've been drinking lots of the new Sprite Zero stuff, as it's the only diet soda I actually like.

Thanks to Marinaro500 for supplying me with sample of this new fangle Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper...

The Verdict: Not Bad....it still tastes like Dr. Pepper; the cherry vanilla flavoring is pretty subtle. Given a choice between a Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper and say, a Pepsi, I'd still get the CV Dr. Pepper. But if the original DP was available I'd stick with it.

I'm a Dr. Pepper nerd.
