It’s that time of year where all of the pumpkin-spiced flavors are making a comeback, and it’s all about the hearty, spicy, and warming tones that are welcoming back winter with open arms.
But it’s time for the pumpkin-spice to step aside as soda is now here to steal the spotlight with Dr. Pepper releasing an exciting new flavor.
Last week, it was announced by Dr. Pepper that they are planning on releasing a cream soda flavor of their iconic soda drink that will hit our shelves in March 2020.
It will be available in both regular and diet form, and whilst it is unclear how many other forms the edition will come in, it does appear that it will be served in plastic bottles.
Images of the new flavor debuted at the 2019 National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) annual trade show, which was held in Atlanta from October 1st-4th.
Dr. Pepper & Cream Soda was one of the many new food and drinks that people were able to get a sneak peek of at the show, and Instagrammer @candyhunting was one of the few who managed to get one of the first tastes.
“Due to the added vanilla flavor, these aren’t as strong on the classic Dr. Pepper taste. Therefore, the flavor here is much less polarizing than the original Dr. Pepper. I actually like this flavor, unlike the original,” they wrote in their review.
It certainly seems that in terms of flavor profiles, the cream soda edition will hold a lot of similarities to the Dr. Pepper cherry vanilla flavor, which features a “splash of cherry, a hint of vanilla, and the authentic taste of Dr. Pepper.”
That said, it might be, in fact, a closer approximation to the Birthday Cake Dr. Pepper – an exclusive flavor of the drink that is sent out as an ambassador perk.
While there haven’t yet been any taste reviews on this quirky little edition, it is assumed that the birthday cake flavor will also strongly revolve around the taste of vanilla, in similarity to the cream soda.
It is unknown as to whether the Dr. Pepper & Cream Soda will be a limited-edition drink, but we can do nothing but hope it will be here from March 2020 to stay on our shelves for good!
