REVIEW: Dr Pepper Strawberries & Cream

2 min read

When the oldsters at Dr Pepper aren’t busy on the soda fountain mixing collectively as many random flavors as they will whereas nonetheless having their beverage be palatable (in some way 23 is the magic quantity), they apparently dabble in berry farming. In 2006 Dr Pepper launched Berries & Cream and 2019 noticed Dr Pepper Darkish Berry. The most recent journey to the patch brings us Strawberries & Cream. This selection, with its pink label and strawberry taste, looks like it might make a very good restricted version for Valentine’s Day, nevertheless it’s really set to be a everlasting addition to the lineup.

The primary whiff upon opening the bottle is certainly strawberry ahead. It jogs my memory extra of strawberry sweet than an actual strawberry, however as somebody who eats extra strawberry candies than the fruit, I don’t essentially take into account {that a} unhealthy factor. The semi-spicy, peppery kick that makes Dr Pepper distinctive isn’t completely misplaced to the strawberry and cream flavors, though it’s extra muted right here. I discovered the flavors easy and really drinkable, however I want one thing stood out extra. Regardless of being tasty, it was type of underwhelming.

I believe the cream could possibly be extra pronounced, and possibly additionally the Dr Pepper. One thing about this falls flat for me, which leads me to my subsequent difficulty – it’s actually a bit flat. I attempted this straight out of the bottle and poured it over ice, and it appeared much less carbonated than typical. There was a slight preliminary fizz, nevertheless it disappeared immediately. I don’t know if that is one thing to do with the system or if I simply received an odd batch, however I missed the bubbles.

I recognize Dr Pepper leaning into old-timey soda fountain themes and I believe this new concoction could be a wonderful base for an ice cream float. As a stand-alone drink, it lacks one thing, and I’m undecided I’d have chosen it for a full-time product. Contemplating there are few mainstream strawberry sodas available on the market, I can see followers of that taste actually having fun with this. Nevertheless it’s price noting that the opposite one that tried it with me discovered the strawberry side to be medicinal tasting. I’ll look again on this as a nice novelty drink, however to me, it’s simply not the cream of the crop.

It’s price noting this additionally is available in a zero sugar model. Dr Pepper has a historical past of excelling with these alternate options, however sadly, it wasn’t out there at my retailer but.
