If I were an icecube, this would be the wet bottle I’d make out with. This is not just another hype drink with the same high fructose corn syrup base and new artificial flavourers; this is the reinvention of a soft drink using fucking German beer purity laws to brew it by fermentation. HOW BADASS IS THAT?!
Flavours are unorthodox. You’ll find lychee amongst elderflower and herbal versions of Bionade. I remember vividly how much I hated elderflower as a child (and probably still do), yet the elderflower flavoured version of this drink is unbelievably delicious without a sour & dry aftertaste or sickening smell that I disliked elderflower berries for.
If you are an athlete and drink this, you will feel stronger and rejuvenated; you probably will be stronger because this is a natural magic potion full of goodness that makes you feel healthier with every sip. If you are a couch potato, you probably don’t feel any effect but it still tastes good.
Depending on where you live it may be hard to get your grubby hands on these bottles but good news is that the company is doing very well and expanding at a good speed so hopefully you will be able to try this one for yourself soon!

An eternal & epic struggle between good and God
I already made some new friends with die hard Dr Pepper fans but sorry guys: you’re the minority. The real hooligans of carbonated goodness come out to solve this question:
What’s better? Pepsi or Coke?
(N.B.: i think the answer to this is ridiculously easy but will not spoil the vote by giving away prematurely that if your taste buds are in the right place and you have a decently working brain, Coke is clearly superior)
The nutrition facts of a regular 355ml can of Dr Pepper don’t show any anomalies: 150 calories, 40g sugar, lack of vitamins, proteins, fibre and minerals. Unfortunately also to see high fructose corn syrup as main sweetener instead of traditional cane sugar.
The taste of Dr Pepper is quite unique. The closest I could approximate the taste with is to mix original Cherry Coke with a herbal lemonade (like the German Bionade) and a few drops of Tonic Water. There certainly is an interesting aftertaste to this concoction and I am aware it’s a hate it or love it thing for most people.
Dr Pepper has been around for a long time now and found its way into a notable number of recipes, with the most popular ones involving either beef or cake.
The problem I have with Dr Pepper personally is that I grow tired quickly of the distinct Dr Pepper flavour after a couple cans and I also don’t find it very refreshing due to its extreme sweetness. That being said, I will have a can of it every few months or so because it has this strange aura of I really crave a Dr Pepper now.
Its uniqueness and versatility earns it

You have probably noticed these colourful drinks at your local Starbucks or Sugar Mountain. They come in over a dozen of different flavours and feature bizarre photography on the label.
Flavours range from Blue Bubble Gum to Pink. However, most commonly you’ll find these ones:
The initial taste of most drinks in their lineups (like the cream drinks) is a sharp and very strong attack of genuine sweetness that lasts longer than most flavoured chewing gums. If you have Diabetes and you chose this drink to be your last meal you may be disappointed - not because it’s not potent enough - it’s simply missing a sophisticated flavour that would make drinking a Jones a memorable experience.
Do not drink this when you are very thirsty either. You may get a feared sugar headache without really squelching any thirst.
On a redeeming note, the Cherry flavour is pretty decent and actually not as sweet as most of their other flavours.
Also, a neat easter egg is that you’re gonna find words of wisdom under each bottle cap (similar to a Fortune Cookie’s).

We all know wine, beer & scotch are great drinking choices. But what if you can’t drink any of those (either because you’re the designated driver, pregnant, a recovering addict, or deadly allergic to alcohol)?
Unfortunately, choices in the grocery store are plenty for non-alcoholic beverages and on top of that half the drinks taste like ass.
Good news is that I’ll go out for you and try any soda pop and other refreshing beverage and tell you which ones to get and which ones to avoid like a dinosaur riding Jesus.
