Generic Dr Pepper?

I learnt today that there are generic brands of Dr Pepper in the USA (in Walmart I believe), but haven't come up on anything here. Are there any stores that sell generic versions of the drink?

Really?! I have 3 No Frills stores fairly close by, and a Loblaws, and haven't seen it anywhere :(

I bought the Walmart one (Dr Flav I think) and it was pretty close to the real Dr. Pepper.

Sobeys/Price chopper has one as well. Compliments Dr. Zip. Nothing like the real deal Dr. Pepper, but fine in a pinch, especially for mixers.
Like a blind man at an orgy, I was going to have to feel my way through.

I launched a brand like that several years ago, Mr. Peeper. But for some reason, it didnt do very well :confused:
Thanks for the memories, RFD.
Good-bye.

If you haven't had Dr Pepper in a long while and you have a Dr Zip, it's passable and possibly even acceptable. But if you have a palette or have drank a Dr Pepper recently and remember the taste, you'll realize Dr Zip is not even close.

Wouldn't generic Dr. Pepper just be root beer?

I do prefer Dr. Pepper though, don't like Root Beer because it has the grape taste of those purple lollipops. I'd be interested too in trying a different one if anyone finds a version in Mississauga.
