Talking The Curious Case of Dr. Pepper & Mr. Pibb

A lot of of our favorite drinks always have knock offs lurking in the aisles. However with these two, it always specifically uses the Mr. or Dr. prefix.

What's the strangest rename you've seen?

Pics aren't necessary, but post'em if you got'em.

Okay, so Dr Thunder is pretty well-known because it's Wal-Mart's generic brand. Some of the funnier ones I've seen that are regional:

Safeway brand, I saw this soda when I lived out west. I love how it looks like they ran out of space for the name:


Also saw this one in Arizona:


Saw this one somewhere in upstate New York:


And, my personal favorite, from my local Pittsburgh grocery chain, Giant Eagle:

Dr. K should be the official soda of North Korea. They're only missing one letter!

Kind of happy/sad how many store brands I can recognize in Daikaiju's pic... Somebody went to a lot of effort, because I know Dr. Choice can't extend more than a 400 mile radius outside of the AR/MO/OK/KS corner

I've had their cola. HOLY CRAP. The flavor is so much more nuanced than Coke... it truly is a gourmet beverage.

Look at the terror in the nurse's eyes. She knows she's in the clammy clutches of a madman.

Dr. Fine is a funny enough name, but even better is the brand name ShurFine. For when you're so desperate that you'll even eat the worst of foods.

Mac n cheese for 25cents? Sure, fine.

I would not accept a glass of soda from Dr. Dude.

Just look at the look of pure terror on that poor nurse's face.

Meanwhile my cousin remarks that Dr. Good Guy sounds like he's probably just Dr. Wily in disguise again.

Judging from the Bally logo and all the other nonsense, this looks like an ad for the world's most terrifying pinball game.

It's actually the backglass for the world's most terrifying pinball game. And I guess it's available as part of FarSight's Pinball Arcade if you're (morbidly) curious.
