They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, well if that is the case then Dr. Pepper is blushing right now.
Dr Pepper is an original. It doesn’t taste like cola or root beer or any mass-marketed fruit drink — it tastes like, well, Dr Pepper. It also happens to be my all time favorite soda, especially the Diet Dr. Pepper. Grocery Stores seem to have picked up on this, and have therefore chosen the name of their beverage very carefully.
