    This has been in the news quite a bit down here... It's fucking bullshit. Dublin Dr Pepper is so much better than the other shit, and it's all profitable and just goes further to market the brand. Very stupid move to spite their face imo.

    I wanted to order some, but the shipping is a killer. The dickbag bottler around here didn't put out the special anniversary stuff with the cane sugar either. They just put the HFCS shit out in special packaging.

    Honestly dude, if you like Dr Pepper, you should try it before it's sued out of existence. It blows all the other "real sugar" soft drinks out of the water.

    You'd think the parent corp would try and work out a deal to offer their formula to the other franchisees. And stop using the HFCS shit already. Sick of looking at fat stoopid people.

    For fucking real. I got some of the Dublin Dr. Pepper and it actually made me realize how Dr Pepper got so popular. Coming in out of the heat and having a cold Dublin was fan-fucking-tastic. It went down smooth and had just the right bit of kick with no syrupy belching. If they sold it locally I'd have suitcases of the stuff.

    I didn't even get the special packaging. I'm starting to think that flying my fat ass down to Texas is going to be the only way I'll ever get any of the stuff

    Update:

    Dublin Dr. Pepper is dead. The Corporation killed it.

    Looks like the big corporation bought Dublin Dr Pepper's entire sales and distribution operations. And it looks like they'll still make Dublin Dr Pepper, but at a different plant and the Dublin named will be removed and be like a Dr. Pepper Throwback.
