#173285 - 02/07/08 05:30 PM speaking of corporate names..
Loc: this too shall pass
..and weren't we just.
did you know that Dr Pepper predates Coca-Cola? (the full-stop after Dr was dropped during the 50s for stylistic reasons.) the drink is sometimes bottled under contract by Coca-Cola or Pepsi bottlers, but in many regions Coke bottlers make Mr. Pibb instead.
this leads me to ask, has anyone ever done a Dr Pepper/Mr. Pibb taste test?

Officially? No. But, I prefer Mr Pibb from the fountain. It's not as fizzy, not as sweet. I don't like Dr Pepper from the bottle or can, as it is highly carbonated._________________________

They both taste like cough medicine to me.

Dr Pepper is to me harsher than Mr Pibb, so I prefer Pibb, but I'll go for a cherry coke anyway..._________________________

I've never heard of Mr. Pibb but then I've never tasted Dr Pepper either.
On another soda subject, I learned recently why I like ginger ale at home but not in restaurants. Most places don't bother to stock it, they give you 7Up with a tiny shot of Coke/Pepsi to make it the right colour.
