Dr. Pepper Announces a New Chocolate Cherry Diet Dr. Pepper Flavor

Do You Want Chocolate Covered Cherries in Your Dr. Pepper?

I'm a fan of Dr. Pepper, and I'm a fan of chocolate covered cherries, however, I'd never thought of mashing the two flavors together. Fortunately — or unfortunately depending on how you see it — someone at Dr. Pepper did. This year the latest limited edition flavored soda on the shelves is Cherry Chocolate Diet Dr. Pepper. It's only available for a limited time, but if history repeats itself, it may hit shelves more permanently. In 2004, Dr. Pepper announced a limited edition Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper that is now available year round; it was followed by Berries & Cream Dr. Pepper. The new Cherry Chocolate flavor is only the third flavor extension in Dr. Pepper's history.

Has anyone out there seen it on their store shelves? If so, have you tried it?

I have been looking for this for years. My friend brought me a can of this soda when it first came out and immediately I went and bought it. I was so disappointed when it was no longer available and have searched for it and still am looking. I have used diet cherry dr pepper and added chocolate syrup to it and it tastes ok but not exact. I hope to find it again.

This stuff is great! I sell heaps of it in my Diner and when we run out and have to wait for a shipment from America......Customers go crazy waiting! I usually have to hide it in my office for emergencys! Misty

I saw this at Walmart just the other day in one of the coolers at the checkout. I LOVE Diet Dr Pepper and I LOVE chocolate covered cherries so I was excited about this.... and it's great! If you've ever had Kozy Shack pudding- the chocolate with cherries in the bottom- that's exactly what it tastes like! Delish! Major props to the mastermind behind this one!

I found it at my local grocery in North Idaho. I was hoping to find it in non diet because I hate the after taste of Aspartame, but it seems to be only available in diet. I hope that changes. It tastes like a cherry tootsie roll pop when you are down to the tootsie roll part with a little cherry candy still mixed in. I thought is was very good except for the aspartame taste. Of course i like cherry tootsie roll pops. lol.

I've seen it at the Vons i work at in Southern California. Haven't tried it yet, and it's not much of a seller out here.

I work for Coca Cola in Michigan around the Detroit/Metro area and we have the distribution rights for Dr. Pepper. I haven't seen the Cherry Chocolate Diet Dr. Pepper in any of my stores. If I see it on the shelves I will come back and let everybody know.

It tastes like Tootsi Roll Tootsie Pops. Liquid candy.

I didn't even realize there was such a thing. I went into a gas station and thought I was grabbing the Cherry Vanilla flavor. I drank some and almost threw-up! Gross!!!!!!! But then again I don't like chocolate covered cherries and that's exactly what it tastes like. So if you like that, go get it.

I've tried the chocolate Cherry Dr. Pepper and I love it! Didn't like the vanilla cherry as well and the Berry Cream was good but OK. This tastes like chocolate covered cherries, very rich tasting. Not something you may want to drink on a regular basis, but it is good. I've only found it in a out of town store the weekend after thanksgiving.

OMG Moxie!! My Gramps used to drink that ALLLLL the time.

Mmm, Dr. P is almost as good as Moxie. But, you couldn't pay me to drink anything diet. Gross, artificial nastiness.

I can't even believe there is any demand for this...

I think the amount of junk used to make the cherrys not super soggy and stay somewhat "together" is just another reason I won't try this.

I'm not a big Dr. Pepper fan, but I'm not going to give an opinion until I've tried it. It might be good. It's got chocolate so it might be good. I like those chocolate Cokes they serve at Mel's Diners.
