Dr Pepper Berries & Cream

This is cool: 1. that dr p has a new flavor, Dr Pepper Berries & Cream, described as a raspberry + cream soda combo, test mktd in half a dozen states, & launching in april. 2. that dr p has an ebay "identity": "dr-pepper soda" 3. that dr p is selling cases of it for charity. What they’re selling is test samples, w/ different packaging than what’s coming out in april, which makes it appealing to collector types (current price as of 9:25 a.m.: $217.50).

New flavors are always cool but raspberries aren't my thing.

look who's first. also, like your "new packaging" too (official handle, that is). maybe you could auction off "the captain"

Well I'm setting up a blog for my church and having my "Capt" label over there didn't seem professional. ;-)

But I'm keeping capt in reserve.

I wonder if i can get $217 for a bunch of Pabst Blue Ribbon 16oz cans. First bid over $200 takes 'em.

He's come out from behind his mysterious Captain altar-ego.

I HEAR IT TAKES ONLY A PABST OR TWO TO GET THE DOG KILLER IN HEAT.

Great item, TG. As a collector type, I might crib that ebay angle for a VV column. I probably wouldn't buy a raspberry cream soda, but wish it was easier to find plain cream sodas.

It never fails to amaze me what people will sell on ebay.

Next thing you know, we'll probably be able to buy crabs from Paris.

Excuse me? One thing mommie & daddie taught me, nothing comes for free. Especially to you average people.

This is an intereting piece of news. I can't help but think that this new flavor's targeted to women.

Over $200 for a case of it. That's crazy. But then again, I almost bought a 20 oz. bottle of Vault for $10 on eBay when they were test marketing them in a few states.

We found a rice cracker over dinner last week shaped exactly like South America! I said we should put it on eBay, but somebody ate it.

The color on the can makes me nauseous.

I drink multiple DR peppers every day. I enjoy Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper but Berries and Cream really didn't cut it. I can not stand the taste of this product and I am amazed that DR Pepper was even willing to put their name on this product.

I liked the Berries and Cream Dr. Pepper, it was good.

I think Dr. Pepper and Robitussin teamed up to develop this drink. It tastes like nasty cough medicine!!!
