Personally, I cannot stand Dr. Pepper or Mr. Pibb. I think they both taste like some kind of funky carbonated prune juice, and I hate prune juice. I also detest creme soda, with a passion - but everyone has different taste buds, so; more power to you who like those things. More Coke classic for me
In spite of the idea that Dr.P is prune juice, I think it is actually a decoction of rhubarb. Well, originally. Now it is probably all fake. At one time rhubarb was strong medicine (and worth a lot of money by the pound!), and most sodas started life as "tonics". For soda, anything from Bundaberg, but especially ginger beer.
