    Dublin Dr. Pepper

    A co-worker is from Dublin, TX. He's always talking about the Dr. Pepper bottler in Dublin having the original Dr. Pepper recipe, made using pure cane sugar. This morning he dropped off a six pack of it for me to try out. Boy let me tell you, what a difference.

    Those were the good old days.
    I remember coke, pepsi, 7up and Root beer made with good old sugar. Quite a difference in taste.

    I make my own Root beer from time to time. The kids like it much better than the bottled stuff.

    There is a chain of fast food chicken restaurants here that have the Dublin Dr Pepper in their fountain. It almost doesn't have that "bite" that I like, but it is good. Just think, when most of us were kids, all soft drinks were made that way! Even around here, a 6 pack of 10 oz bottles will set you back about 3 bucks! Jim.

    The "Heritage Dr. Pepper" (made with sugar vs. HFCS) that's out right now supposedly tastes like the Dublin Dr. Pepper. At least that's what I've been told.

    And why do they charge more for the heritage stuff when sugar is less expensive the the other junk they use.

    Now... just a LITTLE further back up the timeline... Coca-cola (and lots of other fountain drinks) were made with real live cocaine... and heroin was available over the counter, touted as a "complexion improver". Betcha' they sold lots of apple corers around that same time, hm?

    When I was a kid it was rumored that if you eat an aspirin and drink a coke it would make you a little loopy.
    Then I heard that they took out whatever chemical it was from the coke recipe

    Sugar isn't less expensive than the high fructose corn syrup - it's more expensive - that's exactly why they use the HFCS.
