Diet Dr. Pepper (Cherry Chocolate)...

After going to the gym this afternoon, I decided to swing by the grocery store to pick up some things to make supper. So, I walked around Albertsons and got what I needed. Unfortunately for me, there were only two lines open. So, I got behind 6 other people. It wasn't the longest of waits (thanks, in part, to an issue of US Weekly I grabbed off of a nearby shelf), but it was just long enough for me to give in to an impulse buy.

I looked over into the refrigerated case and saw a new Dr. Pepper product: Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr. Pepper. And, in keeping with my tradition of sampling unknown foods so that you don't have to, I knew I had to try it.

So, what's the verdict? Not great. The first sip was pretty gross. It got better after that, but not enough for me to finish the whole 20 oz. bottle. I think it kind of tastes like a cherry Tootsie Pop.

All that said, stick to the real deal. Or, opt for my personal fave; Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper.

Editor's Note: Remember when I posted about Chocolate Rain? Well, Dr. Pepper got Tay to record a song for them. Enjoy...
