    quite a few stores are starting to stock dublin dr pepper now, i notice.

    they're usually oblivious to the differences between regular dr pepper and dublin dr pepper.

    a lot of other imported drinks are appearing too.

    i saw a whole bunch today that i hadn't seen before, but i can't remember their names apart from mountain dew - code red (cherry flavoured american mountain dew), pepsi wild cherry, diet pepsi jazz - caramel cream, cherry limeade sunkist, several different root beers that weren't A & W and heaps of other interesting looking drinks.

    Care to give some hints as to a shop or two in Perth that are stocking these ones? :D

    Cheers,

    i saw these at the lolly shop inside the malaga markets, however, the lady there also runs the lolly shop inside the fremantle markets, so i would assume she has the same range of drinks there.

    it was good to finally see some different drinks.

    My local grocery shop stocks dr pepper cans (both sugared and sugarfree) for $2.50 and also have random different flavoured coke and fanta cans for sale. They also stock energy drinks which I have not seen before. I don't know if $2.50 is reasonable but I'm pretty hooked on the stuff now.

    There is a place in Rockingham (11 Rockingham Beach Rd) that sells dr pepper, cherry coke, cherry 7up etc. They had 2 litre bottles of dr pepper last time i went.

    Does any-one know where i can get some cherry vanilla dr pepper? Apparently the candy store at the freo markets isnt selling it anymore :(

    Super IGA @ Whitfords City have it, i think about $2 a can

    Its from NL, which is weird because I am certain I can taste a slight differance between there and USA manufactured ones

    they also have Welch's grape i think as well :thumbup:

    there is a difference in taste between all of them.
    for me the best tasting one is the UK one. closely followed by dublin dr pepper.
    then the dutch one and then the one made in the us with HFCS.


    Km87, when did you last see those 2L dr pepper's?

    Ahhh sipping on a can right now. I assume it is the Dublin one as It has Bill Kloster's story on the back. For Adelaide people these can be had for $3 a can from both Hutt St IGA stores.

    I'm sure we are on the eve of a resurgence, with all these stores starting to stock it!

    IGA do seem to be on the ball over here, more and more stores are stocking it, though it still isn't getting fridge space, just boxes dumped on the floor.

    I just don't get how the product could do so bad they just stopped selling it, as opposed to selling it in lesser amounts, stoopid.

    im sure we would all be happy to see cab/schwps bring dr pepper back ,even if it had a premium cost ontop of a regular can, it would still make it cheaper than the imports, and it would alteast be made with SUGAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Good news fellas, there's a store on Burwood Rd. Near Glenferrie and Auburn Stations that sells Dr.Pepper and Cherry Dr.Pepper for $2.50 a can. Its a DVD Rental place with a big sign out the front, its a few doors down from Centrecom. Also, its not the S-House Dublin Dr.pepper Either! Drink Up :thumbup:
