For me Dr Pepper is marzipan flavoured coke, I used to like it back when I regularly drank full sugar soda. I do keep a can of it (or coke) on reserve though, just in case a cigar starts kicking my ass. I avoid the diet version like the plague, tastes like cardboard.

I used to see it in American movies and tv shows so when I went over there I had to try it. It's way too sickly sweet for me. I think it's supposed to be a cherry cola. I wouldn't drink it now and it's a pretty rare day when I drink any kind of soft drink.

Water, wine, beer , scotch. That's my poison these days.

I love that stuff - one step above root beer! Only the diet version, though :2thumbs: Can't really describe, why :(

Wowser. I can't believe anyone wouldn't love the 23 flavours of Dr Pepper! When in the States for work I pair it with a cigar regularly. It's the bomb diggity.

There's this other brand of soft drink I bring back to Australia for the Mrs called "Squirt". Customs always make a wisecrack when they see it.

I am generally not a soft drink sort of person,but if I do step out of line it's usually a Red Bull.

And I have always Pepsi to coke,have had a Dr Pepper can't say it rocked my world

Never really "got" Dr. Pepper either. To me it's a bit like sweetened copper sulfate.

Then again, every place has it's "strangely popular" soft drinks. Fresca, Lilt, Irn-Bru, Cream soda, red-lemonade and on and on

I like Dr Pepper. Or maybe it is those old commercials. . .

Don't drink it much any more. Not a big soda fan these days. cool.png

Could never understand the appeal of it. Once had the misfortune to try cherry Dr Pepper...taking vileness to a whole new level !

Tried a Dr Pepper once back in high school. Rated it just a smidge above Sarsi, a drink which I would do almost anything (including including watching a DC Bond film) to avoid having to ever drink again.

I got into it when I was a youngster when it was briefly imported at a normal price.. Occasionally buy 12 packs for $20 nowdays.. Usually one of many drinks in my fridge. Something I have on occasion.. like a treat I guess :P Haven't tried it with a cigar.

For me I remember early on thinking that Dr.Pepper was like having a coke with the after taste of a Christmas candy cane.. Don't think it does that to me anymore.. But I still enjoy it. :P It is pretty damn similar to Cherry Coke.. Which coincidentally I don't like.. Figure that one out!

I like it and am totally with the above view! Also if it needs a bit of a kick - coke mixed with amaretto tastes just the same!!

I Love it! Even if I can't tell you exactly why......LOL. I've just always found it different enough from other sodas that I'm always intrigued with it. It was my favorite soda growing up, and my favorite now as an adult. I think it's the dry edge that highlights the sweetness, which isn't as overwhelming a sweetness as compared to other sodas.

Now, if you want a REAL different experience, Try yourself some PIBB. Used to be called "Mr. Pibb", now it's something like "Pibb Xtra"........but anyway, this was Coke's answer to Pepsi's Dr. Pepper. Pibb is hilarious stuff, tastes to me like Cough syrup with carbonation. Every coupla years.....I get a hankering for one. Hard to find, though...

Also, the Dr. Pepper in the UK tastes different than the US and Canada. I think it's because of frankenfoods laws or something.

Squirt is pretty good, I think it is bottled by Dr. Pepper.

The only beverage that I consume that has neither caffeine nor alchohol is water. To me, Dr.Pepper tastes like carbonated prune juice. The last time I tried it was years ago and I immediately remembered why I don't drink it. I have not paired it with a cigar. I think I did drink it while smoking another substance...

I like diet Dr. Pepper. It isn't supposed to be a cherry coke, it is its own drink.

It is sweet, vaguely fruit like, and was a flavor of my childhood.
