There have been a few limited-edition soda flavors coming out lately, so I thought we needed a good place to stash discussion about it.
I was at Food Lion today when I looked into the Pepsi cooler and found a Dr. Pepper with a deep purple label.
Dr. Pepper Dark Berry.
How does it taste?
Surprisingly good. Kind of like Dr. Pepper with blueberries in it. The distinctive Dr. Pepper “twang” is lacking from the soda, which is a relief, because as much as I used to love Dr. Pepper when I was 18, I can’t really stomach the stuff nowadays.
4 out of 5 stars. Check it out while supplies last.
Wow, forgot about those flavors. I’ve had a mild curiosity to try them in the past, but have never gotten around to it. I’m pretty sure I used to see them in party stores a few years ago but not recently. Qadgop, have you, or anybody else, tried one of those weird Jones soda flavors? Wondering if they’re just disgusting or somehow actually not bad…? Are they sweetened, or savory tasting? Are they strongly flavored, or, I’m guessing, more of a seltzer with a mild hint of the indicated flavor?
Chek (soda brand of Bi-Lo, Winn Dixie, and Harvey’s) makes a good green apple soda.
Speaking of Faygo (this will age me)- I really wish they’d bring back Faygobrau. It was a good ginger beer. The U.S.A. needs a good, hot, inexpensive ginger beer. Sure, I can get Goya at Publix, but over a dollar a bottle for 12 oz. is crazy.
