  • Dr Pepper Ten

    Has anyone seen the new Dr Pepper Ten? I found this at a WalMart on January 16th and learned later that it's part of a test being done in only six markets nationwide. The only mention I could find of this product was an article posted in the Dallas Morning News that describes it as a drink being marketed to young men.

    For those who are just now hearing about this it is a ten calorie version of Dr Pepper and is sweetened by no less than three sweeteners: HFCS, aspartame and acesulfame potassium. It also has a higher caffeine content with 51mg's per 12oz serving. The product is so new that it actually has a 2011 copyright date on it.

    So far I've only seen this in WalMart stores here in San Antonio and is available only in 12-packs of 12oz cans and 2 liter bottles. Austin, TX is also supposed to be a test market and the only other city in Texas that is getting it. I haven't heard anything about the other four test markets around the country but I'd assume that they would all be in areas with strong Dr Pepper sales.

    I've tried it - it's completely un-special to me. It tastes OK but not really any better than Diet Pepper. If I want real Pepper, I'll buy it. Diet Pepper is already a good product. A bridge between them to me is unnecessary.

    I got mine in Fort Collins, CO on Monday.
    Give me some cane sugar real Pepsi in a glass bottle... and not Throwback!

      No reason to want this. DDP Cherry is outstanding.

        Two of the other test markets are Pueblo and Denver CO.

        Glad that someone finally posted a picture of it.

        I'm curious to see how it fares in the test markets.

          Dr. Pepper 10 in Kansas City too

          I picked some up on the 16th at a Walmart Market - had it in 2-liters, and 20oz bottles. Grocery store had it in 2-liters and 12-packs of cans.

          We also have Pibb Zero here, and that tastes less like diet than even diet Dr. Pepper...however, Dr. Pepper 10 beats them all.
          I've sampled it with some people that don't care for *any* Dr. Pepper flavor, and they liked it.

              Is it possible to make 1/2 dr pepper and 1/2 diet dr pepper and bottle/can it?


              This would probably be hard to do but...........I think a lot of people would like it. i always pour 1/2 coke and half diet coke at a fountain or order it that way in a restaurant.

              Couln't this solve a lot of calorie issues and keep from having 3 or more sweeteners in one soda?

              What would the label look like???????????????

                If this stuff makes it nationwide, I'd certainly like to try it. At least we have the Diet Dr Pepper Cherry here; it's really good.

                I wish the folks at CCBCC would put Pibb Zero on the shelves around here. They sell Pibb Xtra, but not Zero.

                  Coke and Diet Coke aren't the same formula, Coke Zero would be what you are looking to mix with Coke.

                    Have you tried the "new" Pibb Xtra? They changed the formula slightly, it reminds me more of the old Mr. Pibb. You can tell if it's new if you see the copyright of 2010 on the packaging, plus "artifically flavored spicy cherry" on the bottle/can/label.

                      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?

                          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.
