Italian here. I've seen that a lot of people on 4chan praise Dr.Pepper. How is it? Is it different than Coca Cola or Pepsi? Yesterday the local supermarket started selling it.Should I try it?
>Yesterday the local supermarket started selling it.Should I try it?
Jesus Christ no, OP. Never try new, incredibly trivial, things without first consulting 4chan. Best just to lock yourself in a dark room, frankly.
It is not a cola. That's the mistake most people make. It's an artificially cherry-flavored soda. It tastes like those little cherry lollipops you might remember from your childhood. Dr Pepper is not overwhelming, but it isn't horrible either.
imagine a spiced cherry soda with coke notes and an amazing mouth feel. Best served stright from the can or a glass with no ice ..alone on a clean mouth or with salty foods. if you don't like it like that try it hot. it's the only soda I drink other then rc its unique and leaves a nice wine meats dessert feel in your mouth
>Should I try it?
Why not? Are you that cheap that you can't walk into a convenience store and impulse buy a 2 liter of a popular brand of soda you've never tried before without first consulting a Taiwanese sewing board for advice?
Why would I buy two if I don't even know whether I like it or not? One is enough.
Also Italian here.
Bought some last week. Tried it. I like it but it's a little too sweet. If the sugar gets toned down, I think it would be pretty popular. I don't understand people who drink this stuff daily.
After a bit of it, I decided to use the rest to make Chinese Coca Cola chicken using Dr. Pepper instead of Coke.
Quick story about Dr Pepper.
I'm 40. My dad died a few years ago at 71.
He and I drove to Arkansas from Connecticut once when I was a kid.
He was frugal (a downright cheap bastard, mostly) and we packed snacks.
We had a lil Oscar up front with ice and grapes, and a 2 liter bottle of Dr Pepper.
>Stopped at a rest stop.
>A group of 6 soda machines outside, in a hexagon.
>Could see cases of soda stacked in the middle.
>Dad boosted me up (I was like 8) on top.
>I dropped into the middle.
>Lifted a few sixers of Dr Pepper to teh top.
>Stood on the stack of cases to get back on top.
>Smuggled the booty back to the car.
My dad was a good guy, mostly, and went to church. I think he felt like he could steal 'em because they were out there. Makes it hard for a kid to work out right and wrong.
The Vanilla Cherry is the bestest.
>Dr Pepper here has around half the sugar of coke/pepsi for some reason.
Where's that? I have a few cans sitting around my desk and the Dr. P is 40 grams of sugar in a 12 oz can and coca-cola is 42.
>It's a love it or hate it thing.
Not really. I like it but I wouldn't go out of my way to buy it. Maybe i'll buy a can from a vending machine every now and then. It's pretty comfortably in the between like and hate territory for me. I'd take an ice cold shandy over almost any other soda though when I see it.
just pour some grenadine into a coke and BAM dr pepper substitute
Nope. I think it was kind of a thrill for him- he probably thought it was a fun/bonding time with his kid. I thought it was super fun at the time, but I wondered about it later through life.
He was far from white trash, but he was a victory garden kind of kid growing up, and definitely thrifty. He made money, though.
I think it was a goof. I wish I had asked him about it and what his thinking was.
Dr Pepper is a fruity cola drink. It consists of fruit, with elements of cola. Because it is a cola, it is fizzy, which means it is bubbly.
This of course means that it is filled with bubbles, as are many other fizzy, bubbly colas.
