A new month and a new Dr. Pepper flavor. The popular American soft drink is releasing a new limited edition flavor and it has a new color too. On May 1, Dr. Pepper is releasing the new Dark Berry Dr. Pepper flavor to the world.
According to Dr. Pepper, the new flavor has “intriguing fruit flavors such as blackberry, black currant, and black cherry,” so it will taste much different from regular Dr. Pepper. Right now fans can get this new flavor in a 12-pack (of 12-ounce cans) for $5.29, or a 20-ounce bottle for $1.99. when ordered from amazon.com.
The brand teased the release of the new flavor one month ago on social media, telling fans to keep an eye out for news on May 1. This new flavor is also expected to be part of the marketing campaign for “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” as the fruit drink is a sort of tribute to the film.
“Spider-Man: Far From Home” is slated to arrive in theaters on July 5, so it’s safe to say that the new limited edition flavor will be available to the public until at least July, since fans will want to buy the drink after seeing the movie as well.
The cans and bottles of the limited edition flavor are dark blue to match the new flavor as well. Also, each can is adorned with landmarks like London’s Big Ben. Some lucky fans who attended a fan convention in Salt Lake City in late April got to try the new flavor first hand, and the overall opinion is that “it was actually pretty good! It was sweet, but good.”
Dark Berry is also the first new flavor release for Dr. Pepper in five years. Customers can also purchase the new flavor in grocery stores across the nation and major retailers like Walmart and Target.
