They changed it 4 years ago and now they are changing it again. Makes no sense.

Yes, the Gremlins ad got me back into the Dew, they got me! I accidently got the baja blast a few wks ago, didn't care for it, but I still finished it off, lol. I'm new to this thread, but like myself I assume many here are looking for any alternative to liquid calories!

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Anyone try this?

Looks like the Wal-Mart version of Dr. Pepper?

Oh, yes, I believe I commented on it years ago in this very thread. I think it tastes even better than Dr Pepper, and it's about 1/3 the cost (79 cents per bottle vs $2.19 or 2.39 for a 2L of Dr Pepper). Do not hesitate to buy it, all their knockoff sodas are good, and excellent value. And, believe me, I'm no shill for Walmart, these being one of the only things I ever buy there.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Coke Zero has been my go to drink for soda for several years. I tried the new one tonight. To me, the change is not subtle, and it's got a bitter edge and aftertaste. I'll have to give it another try from a bottle rather than a can (I'm generally not a can person), but first impression is not good. Might be headed back to Diet Dr. Pepper for my soda fixes.

First can I wasnít sure. Second can I was sold. Itís definitely ďmore deliciousĒ to me and Iíve been drinking Coke Zero since it came out.

Yeah, Dr. Thunder is good.

Tastes more like Mr. Pibb than Dr. Pepper, which is a plus in my book.

Yes, that's exactly why I like it so much. Has a more fruity / stronger flavor than Dr Pepper.

The Dr is offering a new limited edition flavor through their Dr Pepper Perks at DrPepper.com

Its a chocolate flavor and itís free with the points that you get from uploading receipts to the web site.
100 points gets you the soda. I didnít see anything about the number of cans you get for the 100 points.

All Dr Pepper products singles
8 oz
16 oz
20 oz
24 oz
1L
2L
2.5L
3L
Etc = 10 points each.

Packages like the 12 and 24 packs are 15 points per package.

Clubs packages from Costco etc are 30 points per package.

The best option seems to be the singles to add up the points.

Not my hand in the photo.

Dollar General has 16oz cans for a dollar each.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Chocolate Dr Pepper sounds awful, and this is coming from a Dr Pepper fiend. Now, the vanilla Dr Pepper variety released this year was very good. I just don't see how artificial chocolate flavor (chemical admixture, and no cocoa or real butterfat in sight!) and Dr Pepper will mix. The thought of this concoction almost makes me gag. Now, if it was malted Dr Pepper with perhaps a very slight hint of real chocolate syrup, it might make sense.

What is the verdict on Mountain Dew Major Melon

I am not a big watermelon fan but love this especially when it is cold and in the bottle for some reason.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

I like it, my second or third favorite Dew flavor.
top two are the Baja Blast at Taco Bell and the Walmart exclusive Shark one.
The Sam’s Club exclusive blue flavor is pretty good too.

I liked Mountain Dew Major Melon pretty well. Generally Iím not a big fan of watermelon, and especially watermelon flavored drinks or candies. Iíve only had it once though as Iím trying to not drink as much Mountain Dew in general.

Major Melon is good; I'd drink more if stores would carry the Zero version of it.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Iíll try to get some of those.

Bought a six pack of the tiny cans of the new Coke Zero.

I should have looked at the ingredients. If I had, I would have seen aspartame and would not have bought it. Terrible.

I don't like Coke products but I do like the new Black on Red logo they're using on Coke Zero.

Re: slop101's Official Soda / Cola Thread!

Saw 12-packs of a the Mountain Dew Voo-Dew mystery flavor while I was shopping today.

Considered picking one up, but at $5 for twelve cans, I passed on it in case it was something putrid like pumpkin spice.

Last year's Skittles-flavored one was pretty good, though.

It's not pumpkin. It has a hint of cherry. Other than that, I can't tell you. lol
