Isn’t That Kind Of Redundant?

We did out weekly grocery shopping this afternoon (top down, woot, first time is has gone down in over a week) and it was time to stock up on my favorite elixir, Diet Dr. Pepper. As I picked up a twelve pack I noticed a box right next to it that said Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, a strange impulse came over me so I bought one of those too. I sure hope I liked the taste or I don’t know what the heck I was going to do with the other 11 cans.

As we are checking out the kid bagging asks, “Is this any good?” while pointing at the cherry vanilla version. My response was, “I don’t know, but I will in a couple of hours.”

It has been a couple of hours and if that kid is reading this, “It ain’t bad.” I’ll have to wait until I’ve tasted a few more before I decide if I buy it again… Trouble is that it doesn’t seem wildly different from regular Diet Dr. Pepper. Come to think of it, if you tried to describe the taste of Dr. Pepper, you might just use the words cherry & vanilla already. So isn’t this new soda flavor kind of redundant.

Started up, went down, still down.
