Taste-Testing Dr Pepper and Its Knockoffs

Can John Green distinguish Dr Pepper from other similar drinks just by taste? I certainly couldn’t, as I dislike carbonation and I also avoid sugar and cold drinks. I do like sassafras tea, although it’s hard to get these days. The first time I drank Dr Pepper, I thought it tasted like a mix of a root beer and a cola. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Cola is cola, but the distinctive taste of Dr Pepper has been copied, with varying levels of success, by just about every soft drink producer we have. Dr Pepper is supposed to be a blend of 23 flavors that only three people are privy to, and not all that many guess sassafras as I do. The company says, however, that there is no prune juice in the drink, as was rumored.
