Yeah, Virgil's makes some of the best sodas I've ever had. I'm more interested in Dr. Better because it's from them than because it's a Dr Pepper clone.

We have some Dr. Better sitting on a shelf at home. Personally I'm not into Dr. Pepper flavor at all, so I've given it a pass. Their cream soda is fucking delicious, though, so I'm sure the Better is great if you're into that flavor genre.

I've never heard of Dr. Better but I can't help thinking it's the name of an early 20th century snake oil salesman.

"You got muscular polyps, collapsed marrow or butterflies in the tummy? We got the cure. One swig from Dr. Better's Healing-Style All-Purpose Miracle Brew and Conditioner and you'll go from the Yellow Kid to Hercules. Remember folks, I ain't Dr. Good. I'm Doctor Better!"

Dr. Fine sounds like a character on Grey's Anatomy.

I have to get a root canal, so sadly, I have to cut down on my pop consumption. I was mainlining pop all day long if I wasn't working like it was a vice.

Fun fact that no one asked for: I drank Dr.Pepper as my soda of choice - or "coke" of choice, as we say down here - for about 30 years and I still remember the moment I stopped. About four years ago, sitting down at a crawfish boil, chugging a Dr.Pepper and I thought to myself, "This...doesn't taste right anymore." Haven't touched a Dr.Pepper since.

Dr.Thunder is Walmart's brand and they're pretty okay. The soda, not Walmart.

Mr.Pibb > Dr.Pepper, btw.

I feel you. Lately I've been drawn to less sweet and herbal tasting colas lately, like Moxie, Fentimans Curiosity Cola, and Sprecher's Puma Cola.

ShurFine orange juice tastes WAY better than Tropicana.

While I don't doubt your preference, everytime I see a ShurFine product, the name makes me think, "What are they hiding?"

Well! Found one that flaunts tradition, in more ways than one.



MacFuddy asks, "Hey, what if we put the PEPPER in Dr. Pepper?"
This has a building spicy bite. I think it's cloves since there's no cooling sensation like you get with peppermint and straight pepper would be nasty.

Mind you, I suppose the mention of a laboratory puts it near the Doctor end of the spectrum.
