Surely the human race is capable of coming to a consensus?

That's not what happened when Redditor 74CK asked the following question: "Dr Pepper is a drink that tastes delicious but the taste is hard to explain. How would you explain it?"

It turns out it's not that simple, but the responses can still be hilarious.

Before we start, there appears to be an answer, but it's WILD.

I don't know if anyone will scroll down here but:

"What are the 23 flavors? The 23 flavors are cola, cherry, licorice, amaretto (almond, vanilla, blackberry, apricot, blackberry, caramel, pepper, anise, sarsaparilla, ginger, molasses, lemon, plum, orange, nutmeg, cardamon, all spice, coriander juniper, birch and prickly ash"

I just went to the Waco Dr. Pepper Museum last week! The doc who invented it was supposedly trying to mimic the scent of the drug store he worked in, thus the crazy collection of tastes.

It makes sense.

BBQ Soda.

TheBestestTitan

Um, gross?

Sweetened chemical root herb.

CubInEarly30s

Really?

My mom called it carbonated prune juice. I never saw that way.

aSaltyFriendd

Nice reference.

Like a sexy battery.

Who knew?

INTELLECTUAL.

DarkBlueDovah

That'll do it.

If you got all of the brightest prettiest colors and scribbled then into one circle combining them into a mush of brown.

... but with flavors.

TruckingNerd

That's a shame.

Australian here, it reminds me of cough medicine. Needless to say it never really took off here.

Whatthetaco

It's a worth a guess.

Like really subtle Root Beer, or a less-intense Vanilla Coke with a hint of something else, a kind of gentle spice maybe? I'm drinking one right now, matter of fact, and swilling it around my mouth like a sommelier with a good vintage.

carmelacorleone

Well, that's unsettling.

The term I've always used is 'liquefied new car smell.'

GTAnonymous.

The secret's out!

I don't know what it tastes like but when you're high you taste it for like fifteen seconds.

cosmoceratops

Harsh.

Giphy

Pepto Bismol soda.

BigaretteBilly

Brilliant.

An analogy:

Dr. Pepper is to Cherry as Heinz 57 is to Ketchup.

You can tell cherry is in there, but it's just one note of the symphony.

But fewer people know Heinz 57 than know Dr. Pepper.

itomeshi

Well, I guess stink bugs are delicious.

My mom absolutely hates the stuff and says it tastes like what she would imagine what stink bugs would taste like.

tinynancers

Ouch.

Sugar syrup with fake barrel taste mixed with a slight cherry that is an undertone that you can't really taste mixed with dark colorant.

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
