i'm a pepper too
Being a big Dr Pepper fan, I had the motive, means and opportunity to try the new Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper yesterday. Now, unfortunately those of us living in the Golden State can only get the Diet version, apparently the sugar stuff is only good enough for "select markets". Hrrmpph. Ok, well Diet is better than nothing in a pinch I guess.

Unfortunately, in this case, I'd say "nothing" might have had a slight edge. Despite the "tastes more like regular Dr Pepper" claims, the artificial sweetener taste is still pretty strong, and there wasn't enough Cherry or Vanilla to make it worth while. All in all I would give it 2 ½ thumbs up out of a possible 5. If you know of a way to procure me a sample of the non-diet version, I'll be your best friend.
