I really want to like this drink, especially since I’ve sworn off regular Dr Pepper (my first love) forever because I was addicted and it was way too much sugar.
So, I bought a 12 pack of the Diet Cherry Chocolate DP cans tonight. Why do they make drinks like that only in cans? They taste so much better in bottles. Anyway, I tried drinking it out of the can. Blech. Okay, now I’m trying it in a glass, on the rocks. With a straw. Better.
It actually tastes like a cherry/chocolate Tootsie Pop. Yeah, that’s exactly what it tastes like. I’m not getting too much of the Dr Pepper taste. It’s not too bad. I don’t think I’d want this with a meal, but it would be a nice after-dinner “dessert” for dieters who want something good but guilt-free.
As far as new diet drinks go, this one’s pretty darn good.
