I actually like Dr. Pepper... It's like a cousin of cherry cola or something. But isn't Dr. Pepper part of 7-Up? I always believed so.

Cherry Coke is good, but incredibly hard to come by. the pepsi counter part is so-so. I say that vanilla coke was good, but so was pepsi blu... by the way - dr pepper is made by coke...

From the Dr. Pepper website:
DR PEPPER, DR, PEPPER and RED FUSION are trademarks of Dr Pepper/Seven Up, Inc. ©2003 Dr Pepper/Seven Up, Inc.


But Dr. Pepper does show up on the Coca Cola brand-list.

http://www2.coca-cola.com/brands/brandlist.html

It's interesting because on the Dr. Pepper Website, it says that Schweppes also merged with Dr. Pepper/7-Up, now called Dr. Pepper/Seven Up, Inc.
The largest non-cola enterprise in North America with about 16 percent of the market.


http://www.dpsu.com/brands.html
DPSU refreshment roster boasts Dr Pepper and 7 UP, our lineup also includes A&W, Sunkist, Slush Puppie and RC Cola brands, Squirt, Welch´s, and Canada Dry.



A bit of a tickler, eh?

.. Heh... On a side note, Coke makes/owns a product called, 'Water Salad.'

warren buffet, bershire hathaway, and coke. world's second richest man is involved w/ that co. pepsi has the "buffet of saudi arabia" (some sultan or other) involved w/ it (probably trying to duplicate what buffet has done w/ coke). buffet is nick named the "sage of omaha", i suppose the sultan guy would be the sage of wahabee land.

it's sugar water, w/ phosphoric acid, carmel, coloring, and caffein. probably responsible for childhood obesity (right there w/ McDonalds).

btw, that sultan guy daytrades 1/2 a billion dollars daily. that isn't chump change!.

That stuff is the BOMB TRACK!
They sell it here sometimes. I thought it would be wretched, but it was actually quite smooth. Haven't seen it around lately though :cry: That and my other favorite drink "Vitamin Bottle" by C1000. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I can't read the bottle, but it has all kinds of vegetables and fruits on the label. I guess that doesn't mean that it has that stuff in it, but still. The taste reminded me (completely from memory) of one of the SoBe drinks. Maybe one of the diet ones? It's pink in color, and has a really light fruity taste, and it leaves a pleasant aftertaste.
