People Attempt To Describe What Dr. Pepper Tastes Like—And We Can't

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.
