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.

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.

There is no good excuse.

There is no reason that makes it worth it.

Most of the time the "reasons" are lies.

"People who knowingly have slept with someone who was in a relationship, why did you do it?"
