I'm a pepper, are you a pepper?


I have a great love for Dr. Pepper.  It started as a child when I used to drink the glass bottle version at my grandparents store.   There was nothing better on a hot summer day than a cold bottle right out of the icebox.   With a moon pie, of course.

The commercial was super catchy too and always made me want a drink.

Then when Bonne Bell started making the jumbo Lip Smacker I was hooked. Anyone that knows me is aware that I ALWAYS have a Dr. Pepper Lip Smacker on hand.  And for years now, I have been buying them in bulk for fear that would stop making it.

I don't drink Dr. Pepper anymore.  Now that I'm older, I try to pay a bit more attention to the types of sugary substances I put in my body (it's typically limited to my daily iced coffees).  BUT, while researching for this blog post, I found this:


WHAT?!?!?!  It's only sold in the UK as far as I can tell.  DAMN.  I would possibly drink nothing else if I could get my hands on this.  Anyone want to start a petition to get it stateside?

I would drink the shit out of some Dr. Pepper Zero. No joke.

I am not a soda person at all, but I clearly remember the delicious taste of those cola lip glosses. Mmm. I think I had a Sunkist one.
