No it isn't. Go into a place that lets you get/refill your own drinks, and mix everything together. That's Dr. Pepper.

I don't care for the stuff, despite living in the state it was born in. It's too sweet and flat for me, and has a terrible aftertaste. Regardless, folks down south guzzle this shit like we might someday lose the ability to make it.

This is all meant to be taken facetiously - no one get their panties in a twist about it.


So if I go to the local movie theater and mix Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, MUG Root Beer, Mt. Dew, and Sierra Mist it will taste like Dr.Pepper?

I'm highly doubting that. Just because Dr. pepper says its made of 23 flavors doesnt mean its just some jungle juice of sodas.

If it can do this to the Easter Bunny, imagine how it will make you feel...

It'll be startlingly close. The creator - I don't remember his name - said that he wanted to make a soda that "tasted like how a soda fountain smells." This was back in the early 1900s I think, when you had soda jerks mixing syrups and things right there in the parlor.

Originally, if you wanted to order a Dr. Pepper before it was officially named, you said "shoot me a Waco."

Cobbling together a mishmash of what's at the movies or in a McDonald's will be pretty close to proper Dr. Pepper. Definitely helps if you add in a cherry flavored component, or at least something like Big Red.

Yeah, SASE with a limit of 1 a week. With the postage rates you might as well buy a Dr. Pepper. I put all the details in the thread I made in the contest forum

Anyone tried Dublin Dr. Pepper? It's so much better than the high-fructose corn syrup version. http://www.dublindrpepper.com/

I quit drinking HFCS sodas long ago...but may fall off that wagon to see if I can get some DLC.

I compare it to unprotected sex and finding a rolled up 1 dollar bill on the ground...but when you unroll it you find a 20 inside so the good situation just got a lot better.

Come on ME2 and Dragon Age DLC :)

I entered a cap yesterday evening, but could never sign into my EA account to redeem it. Kept telling me my info was incorrect, but I can sign directly into the EA.com with no issues. After looking at your prize listing, I guess it was a blessing in disguise. When does the 360 dlc go up?

DLC for ME:2 and BF:BC2 seem like they will be made available at game launch, along with other DLCs.

Unique Downloadable Content (DLC) for applicable EA games (games subject to change) - Mass Effect 2, Battlefield Heroes, The Sims 3, Spore, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 plus additional games may be available based on EA game release dates.


Which means that as the games are released, we'll likely score some DLC out of it.

My reading also leads me to believe that you get to CHOOSE the DLC you want, so you won't be fishing for game-specific codes, especially since you are unlikely to have the requisite game for a specific code.
I am the Munkapotamus, and you are not. Rejoice.

This ought to excite you into buying Dr. Pepper. The secret flavor ingredient is prunes. ;^) No, really, that is the secret flavor ingredient. Now go drink one.

Ok, no, that's not really true, but it's a long standing rumor: http://www.snopes.co...et/drpepper.asp

I like the stuff, though always prefered the harder to find Mr. Pibb, now just Pibb.

I always thought that it tasted like prunes but maybe I heard that rumor somewhere first. I can't stand the stuff buy my wife likes it. I saw some out in the wild today here in Utah. So if we have it, it should be everywhere by now.

That was one of the rumors that it was just carbonated prune juice instead of the 23 flavors .

You can validate the prune rumor this way. Drink a lot of Dr. Pepper, eat a meal that has little to no fiber, and see what happens when you next visit the toilet. Disaster or miracle? That will tell you if there are prunes involved.

seriously?

its hard to describe the taste. I guess itd be like mixing Rock and Rye with Cherry Coke.


Wanna know what Dr. Pepper tastes like? Fill a shot glass halfway with Amaretto and top with Barcardi 151 Dark Rum Then take said shot glass and drop it into a mug filled 2/3 of the way with American Lager (Miller High Life and Bud Ice work particularly well). Take said shot glass, drop it into the mug of beer and chug. For added flair, light the shot glass with a match/lighter before placing in mug.

You've just made a (flaming) Dr. Pepper. One that takes similar to the canned variety and has more long lasting effects (if you know what I mean).

(note the irony that I quoted a poster named "FlamedLiquid")
