All of a sudden they've added Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper to the vending machines downstairs. And, since the Diet Pepsi machine has lately taken to eating dollars, I decided to throw caffeinated caution to the wind and try it. I've been curious about DCVDP because, at least to my possibly-peculiar palate, Dr. Pepper already has at least a bit of cherry and vanilla flavor to it. And, lo: DCVDP tastes sort of like Diet Dr. Pepper that has been left sitting open on a counter for a day and then is re-carbonated. It's also for some reason the color of transmission fluid. Verdict: Thumbs down.
(And, yes, I know I shouldn't be drinking so much soda. Only those who go through some kind of religious or religious-like conversion can throw off all their vices at once, and so the soda vice is on hold while the my Weight Watchers offensive remains underway.)
