    fusion,

    No, I've not had any Pibb Xtra in quite a while. I'll have to buy one of the 2L bottles the next time I see Coke products on sale.

    Pibb seems to be an afterthought around here. While Dr Pepper (distributed by Pepsi in this area) has tons of shelf space in most stores, Pibb is usually limited to one stack of fridgepacks and one line of 2L bottles.

    I really like the Pibb Zero because you could really taste the cinnamon flavor in it. Have they altered the formula for PZ too?

    I see...

    Dr Pepper to test low-calorie drink in KC - KansasCity.com


    By JOYCE SMITH

    The Kansas City Star



    Kansas City, Dr Pepper wants your opinion.

    The soft-drink company has picked our city and five others to test a new product called Dr Pepper Ten. The new drink will primarily target men who like the taste of regular soda but not the calories.

    According to the company, Dr Pepper Ten was developed with a “one-of-a-kind, proprietary sweetener technology to deliver the taste experience of regular with just 10 bold calories.”

    Dave Fleming, spokesman for the company in Plano, Texas, said that though many people liked the taste of diet soda, research showed some men thought they were giving something up when they drank a diet product.

    Dr Pepper Ten is being rolled out locally at Super Target, Walmart and other groceries.

    In March the company will bring in a mobile “man cave,” a temporary hangout with video games and other entertainments, as well as free samples of Dr Pepper Ten. It will stop at what the company called “testosterone zones” yet to be named. Readers, do you have some suggestions?

    Dr Pepper Ten also will be tested in Des Moines, Iowa; Austin, Texas; Denver; Colorado Springs, Colo.; and San Antonio.

    I had a chance to try the tweaked version of Pibb Xtra today. I was not impressed. It tasted pretty bland.

    A BevReview reader kindly sent me a bottle of Dr Pepper Ten, since I'm not living in one of the test markets. Read the full review for detailed thoughts, but in summary, it was disappointing. I actually felt that Diet Dr Pepper tasted better than Ten.

    It's an oddly positioned drink with higher caffeine levels, and one would think that the 10 calories and HFCS would help it taste better, but they do not. Don't even get me started on the marketing proposition that "it's not for women"

    Your full review of Dr Pepper Ten was brilliant!
    Dr Pepper Ten's marketing to "men" is doom to fail.
    As always, the tree picture rocks!

    Again, don't see the point. DDP cherry is already amazing.

    And right on about Pepsi Max. Very good...very lost. Still waiting for mf Max cherry.

    They're actually going to make Pepsi Max Cherry?
