Review: Dr. Pepper & Cream Soda

According to my doctor, my BMI is a "tad high," and according to my dentist, I'm a "bit cavity-prone." So I really should be one of the last people to drink soda, especially full-calorie soda with all of the sugar.

But gosh, do I love those fizzy sweet beverages...

When I came across Dr. Pepper & Cream Soda in the grocery store, I had to get it. I love Dr. Pepper. I love cream soda. Surely, I would love the two together.

I sipped the drink, expecting to be blown away.

And it was...good.

To be honest, it is very Dr. Pepper forward. On my first sip, I thought, Where's the cream soda? But after the initial hit of Dr. Pepper, I did get the cream soda eventually and tasted the sweet vanilla.

If you're not a fan of Dr. Pepper to begin with, this drink likely won't win you over because a more accurate name for this beverage would be "Dr. Pepper Featuring a Little Cream Soda." If you're a fan of cream soda but not super into Dr. Pepper, you would probably be disappointed by this drink.

But if you like Dr. Pepper and wouldn't mind a sweeter variation, maybe give Dr. Pepper & Cream Soda a try. I do like my things to be on the sweet side, so I actually like Dr. Pepper & Cream Soda a little better than regular Dr. Pepper because of the added sweetness of cream soda.

Would I pick up a 12-pack of this? Probably. Will my dentist point out a few new cavities on my next visit?

Almost certainly.
