The tag line on the new Cherry Dr. Pepper is “amazingly smooth.” I am here to say that this soft drink is so smooth that you can’t even taste it. I took a swig and swirled it around to get my reaction to the new drink and immediately came to a conclusion. I kept it to myself until Blake took a drink of his (not wanting to influence his opinion.) I simply asked him, “So what do think about it?”

He said almost to the word what my impression was, “It’s okay, it doesn’t really have much flavor.”

“Yes! Thank you,” I told him. The thing tastes like carbonated water with a distant hint of cherry in the aftertaste. There is absolutely no hint of Dr. Pepper in there. It is just carbonated water.

I wouldn’t waste your time with this one.
