Dr Pepper - Doctor Pepper Cherry Taste the Same as Cherry Coke

Review by The Triplets boy boy girl on 2012-03-08
For those of you who don't know in Canada they have a new Doctor Pepper. It is cherry flavored Doctor Pepper. I tried this and it tasted to me just like Cherry Coke. So if you think you are trying something new than don't try Doctor Pepper Cherry. But if you like Cherry cola like I do than go a head and buy it. Just letting you all know that it tastes the same as cherry Coke. It taste good, if you like that kind of flavour but don't expect it to be different from Cherry Coke.

Dr. Pepper is made by Dr. Pepper Snapple, came out of Cadbury Schweppes. I don't think there is any relation between the two companies, therefore not the same product.

I've never had Cherry Coke, but I have had Diet Cherry Pepsi, which hasn't been tasting very good lately. I tried Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper and thought it was very good. It did taste like cherry cola but much better than Diet Cherry Pepsi.

After further review, I stand corrected by myself. I just found, to my surprise, that both Cadbury Schweppes licenses the bottling and distribution of Dr. Pepper to both Pepsico and Coca Cola. This varies by country. I thought these soda companies kept their recipes under lock and key.

If that is the case, it's hard to know what crossover there is and maybe in fact it could even be the same recipe.

In any event, if the OP feels they taste the same, there would be no reason to try the other as suggested in the review (unless you are partial to one brand name over the other).

Dr. Pepper/Snapple, unlike Coca-Cola and Pepsi, has its products spread out under a number of different bottlers, probably under old agreements when the companies that eventually became Dr. Pepper/Snapple were still independent. In NE OH, Pepsi handles Dr. Pepper and Crush. The Coca-Cola bottler handles Canada Dry Ginger Ale and Tahitian Treat. The 7-Up bottler handles 7-Up, RC, and the other Dr. Pepper/Snapple brands.

What is now Dr. Pepper/Snapple is a merger of a number of once-independent soft drink companies, including Dr. Pepper, 7-Up, Royal Crown, Canada Dry, and Snapple, among others.

Be sure y'all get to the bottom of this before too long.
