Do you buy Dr. Pepper, or do you get a store brand?

I love Dr. Pepper, but I usually get the store brand. I tastes nearly the same, and is much cheaper. I only get Dr. Pepper if it is on sale for less than the store brand. Which kind do you buy?

I don't buy it because I don't like it. However, my mom likes it as her favorite soda. She doesn't like the store brands at all. She only drinks Diet Dr. Pepper, so in her opinion sh eonly like the original and the store brand doesn't taste the same. For me, I would stay away from Dr. Pepper at all costs and drink something else. Pablo

i'll buy either dr.pepper or mr.pibb,no preference. i really hadn't noticed a discernable difference between the two,they're equally good.i guess it would depend on the cost.

Oh wow! I have NEVER heard of Mr.Pibb! Here in Canada the knock off store brand of Dr.Pepper is called Dr.Rock! I remember asking in another discussion what a Mr.Pibb was! Now I know! LoL!

Well, I get the diet Dr. Pepper, but I do only get the DDP. I don't for sure know what's in the store brands and I don't want an allergic reaction if it has something I'm allergic to in it.

I don't drink much soft drink. But if I get in the mood for one it is diet Mt. dew. It has to be the real deal, no store brand.

I don't really like Dr. Pepper so I don't buy it, or any other type :-) I do love Cola though, but I would never even consider buying anything but the original Coca Cola. :)

My family calls me a dr. pepper-a-holic. Ha. No, I do not buy the store brand. I hate the Dr. Thunder (walmart brand). I don't like it at all. I do like Mr. Pibb, but that is really hard to find around here. I really only like the original Dr. Pepper. I don't like the other flavors (cherry vanilla, chocolate cherry etc) and I don't like the store brands. I guess I'm just picky when it comes to Dr. Pepper. haha.

I LOVE my Dr.Pepper and everything else just tastes wrong! I have tried the Dr.Rock and all the other store brand cheap imitations and they are no where near as good as Dr.Pepper itself. It may cost a wee bit extra, but it's worth it to me! I LOVES my Dr.Pepper!

I only buy Dr. Pepper. I do not like the store brands. I do not think they taste the same. I am one who can tell if someone at a restaurant tries to serve me Mr. Pibb and tell me that it's the same thing. No, it's not. Most will ask if it's alright and I will very quickly tell them no. But sometimes, they just bring the other anyway, and I always send it back!

My parents don't trust store brands, hahaha!! But i usually get Dr. Pepper, when my parents let me. They say I drink too much soda :P I also like Canada's dry Green Tea ginger aLe (i think that's what it's called) I found out that after you're used to drinking Dr. Pepper, Original Coca Cola tastes weird..or is it just me? Dr Pepper has the cherry flavour in it, if i'm not wrong :P
