It isn't a geek thing, it is a caffeine thing. Dr. Pepper out of the tap has the most caffeine of ANY popular soda. Many people mistakenly think Mt Dew has more (although, from the can Mt Dew has a touch more than Dr Pepper). But the caffeine gets you semi addicted and you just keep coming back. If you add up the slight flavor varieties, Mt Dew is in 2nd place (2nd most amount of caffeine from the tap). The downward trend with caffeine is not a coincidence. To me, Dr. Pepper is the worst tasting drink I've ever had.Originally posted by: gherald
I love Dr. Pepper and my whole family thinks I am weird... good to see I am not alone, maybe it is a geek thing?
