Diet Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cherry Soda- Limited Edition
I have to admit it has taken me 3 bottles of this soda to decide what I thought about it.
I've said this a few times about other chocolate items. Sometimes the idea of the product is better then the product it's self. That is how I tend to feel about chocolate soda's.
The smell is the first thing that hits you. It is like a grenadine covered tootsie pop was left out in the sun- and oddly enough that's not a bad thing.
If you were expecting any type of a Dr. Pepper type taste, give that up now. That is one of the reason's it took me so many times to get a handle on if I liked this or not. The first few sips it tastes like liquid Tootsie Roll mixed with flat Cherry Coke. The interesting thing is that the more you drink as you get used to the taste it really does start to taste like a chocolate covered cherry!
Specially one of those liquid filled Cella cherries- which I happen to love. The chocolate taste is strong enough that this would even satisfy a chocolate craving.
It's lightly carbonated which works well for this flavor and personally I did not notice a strong taste from the artificial sweetener.
I ended up really liking this soda the more I drank (even though I do admit it was not love at first taste) I have not tried it but I bet it would be wonderful with ice cream (which kinda makes the whole purpose of diet soda redundant but...)
