I only tried the Lebron's mix(which came out in a limited edition to dollar generals I believe last year) and the blackberry canada dry. Both were very good. The Lebron's mix tasted better than I remembered. I was not thrilled by the can version last year.

I don't know if that Blackberry Ginger Ale sounds good or not. I like blackberry but am not a big fan of ginger ale.

I have not seen the Natural Dr Pepper but I had read an article in March 2014 about Dr Pepper/Snapple testing a 60 calorie soda. I will be taking a road trip on I-95 next month and will be looking for this.

Beat me to it. I found the blackberry ginger ale this weekend at Target in 2 liters, and just now at an Exxon/Dash In in 20oz. It is a nice change of pace.

Berry punch Fuze is also in 16.9oz 6 packs. Though that is a northeast thing, I think Maryland is as far south as they go. I'll have to snap a picture when I am in a store later this week.

The LeBron's Mix does look a lot better than it did last year (when it was called 6 Mix.. But now that he is no longer #6, they had to change the name).

Haven't seen the new DPS low calorie stuff. Though they may be in areas where the DPS bottler has Dr Pepper and the other brands. Around here it's either Coke or Pepsi that has Dr Pepper. Have to go to western Maryland where RC Winchester VA has all of them.

I noticed today on the Blackberry Ginger Ale bottle it says it's a limited time item.

A little hard to see but it shows it in the upper left of the picture.

Found some tradewinds tea special editions right near the lipton pure leaf single serves. http://www.tradewindstea.com/flavors/

They are the Jimmy Buffet editions. Tried the Pineapple Coconut one and it tasted so watered down and lacking flavor. I also found the Snapple "Straight up teas" next to those.
