Dr. Pepper Imitations

Ummmm….. Dr. Pepper. Especially that old timey Cherry-Vanilla Dr. Pepper (which I can actually buy in Japan at a curiosity shop). It’s so good that its often imitated: the surest form of flattery or failure?. Some of these imitations achieve both at the same time.

A few of my favorite names include:

  • Dr. Riffic: Trying too hard
  • Doctor: Cutting the bullsh*t
  • Dr. Smooth: My nickname in college
  • Dr. Foots: Does not sound delicious
  • Dr. Dazzle: Great pro-wresting name
  • Dr. Shaws: Too similar to Dr. Scholls wart remover
  • Dr. Becker: Pecker?
  • Mr. Sipp Soda: Best served in sippy cup

The full 127 non-complete set of cans are as follow:
