Dr Pepper Dark Berry Edition (Candy Mail) By @Cinabar

Dr Pepper Jurassic World Dark Berry Edition

This Dr Pepper Dark Berry Edition is an imported drink, because you rarely see limited edition flavours of Dr Pepper here in the UK. I don’t know why, perhaps one day this will change. In the meantime, I do like having a look at the import stores and seeing what I can find that I wouldn’t get here.

Dr Pepper Dark Berry Edition has been released in celebration of the latest Jurassic World movie. As much as I love a new drink, I’m not sure what the connection between dinosaurs and berry flavour is, but perhaps I’m overthinking it. A tenuous link that one of the dinos is called ‘Blue’? The can looks smart though and even has dinosaurs on the side. I poured the drink out and was intrigued to see if there was a touch of blue to the colour. Fortunately, it was the usual dark brown drink. I gave it a sip and the taste was pretty much regular Dr Pepper but with a nice aftertaste of blueberries, which worked really well.

The flavour was nice, complimented by a softer taste of fruit and, as a drink, I really enjoyed. I’m glad the berries didn’t add too much extra sweetness, as Dr Pepper is sweet anyway, but this was a nice twist on the original.
