REVIEW: Dr Pepper Cherry Dessert Topper

I have a lot of friends who study psychology (you know who you are) and one of our favorite pastimes is talking about different fetishes people have or what couples do to spice up bedroom and/or in the back of a 1970’s van activities (I’m a college student who has a lot of time on her hands in between coursework and drinking, do not judge me).

Of course there’s the good ol’ foot fetish or the “wrap me up in rubber and spank me with a fly swatter while you call me Mistress Naughty Pants” fetish. However, the awkward yet supposedly sensual activity of putting whipped cream and warm fudge on body parts that are scientifically known as “fun buttons,” “happy trails” or “bean bags” are always a conversational crowd pleaser.

I’m not thrifty, but chocolate body paint that is marketed as a “sensual feast for the mind and body” is not worth $40 plus shipping. For that price I rather buy a box of Godiva and have a piece whenever I feel like a bad little schoolgirl or just buy the new Dr Pepper Cherry Dessert Topper.

Yes, I will admit it sounds odd and maybe a tad bit disgusting, but Dr. McPeppy (my personal nickname for the sauce) delights the taste buds. I was scared at first; I didn’t want my love for Dr Pepper Cherry to be tarnished by the ooey gooey version, but Dr. McPeppy set me at ease and assured me he will taste just like the liquid form.

I took a deep breath, closed my eyes and let that sticky sauce hit my tongue. My eyes slowly opened as I began to savor the dessert topping naked. I didn’t want my first time with Dr. McPeppy to be masked by ice cream. It had to be an organic experience, or as much as an organic experience can be with high fructose corn syrup.

In the buff, Dr. McPeppy holds up well, but after a few pea-sized samples of the sauce it gets to be too sweet — almost annoyingly sweet. Dr. McPeppy was about to whip out a boom box and start serenading me with The Ultimate Collection by Barry White, but I put a stop to that by trying a little on some Breyers coffee ice cream, which accompanied it quite well. I haven’t tried it with vanilla ice cream, because I do like to spice things up a bit, but I’m sure it would taste just as good or maybe even better.

The best thing about the Dr Pepper Cherry Dessert Topper is that it’s not specific on what types of desserts you can put it on, so pretty much let your imagination run wild, but don’t blame me if your partner gets freaked out by putting some on her fun buttons or his bean bags.

Price: FREE

Rating: 6 out of 10
Pros: Tastes just like the soda. Fat free. Having educated conversations about fetishes. The use of the word dessert to imply many things. Adds something different in your dessert topping arsenal.
Cons: Gets to be too sweet. $40 chocolate body paint. Has enough sugar to possibly go into a diabetic coma. Feeling sticky after a so-called “sensual feast for the mind and body.” Dubious ingredients that require a doctorate in chemistry to figure out what you are actually consuming.

  1. I’m into pouring extremely hot soup onto my bean bag. Don’t judge, we’ve all got our things.

    I work at a grocery store and I’ve seen Root Beer Float and, I’m not 100% on this one, but I think Crush as well? Anyway, I saw the Root Beer Float one and it’s death-black color was enough to scare me away.

  2. Whaaaa!! There’s Root Beer Float and Crush flavors too? Anything else?

    This was hilarious. Does it have any soda qualities? ..any fizz to it?

  3. This is an interesting combo. I wanna try it now. I did get the pleasure of tasting Smuckers cupcake magic shell this weekend at the beach. Smuckers was running some free sundae taste tour around the US. That stuff was good but annoyingly sweet. Then again I am usually a sugar free type of girl.

  4. INteresting.. I prefer caramel sauce with small marshmellows and sliced bananas. lol But that maybe interesting to get…. did you let your mom read your review?

  5. @Zac Pritcher (Everyview) Yeah, there is a Vanilla Orange Cream Crush flavor, but I haven’t seen it in the stores, only on the internets.

    @Bear Silber Not fizzy per se, but it isn’t like tasting flat soda either.

    @Lex Yes, my mom has read all of my reviews so far and she’s always on the lookout for products that I can write about. I guess you can call her an enabler.

  6. Uh oh….I didn’t realize this was written by a female…it takes on a whole new look now…..uh……I’ve got to go to the supermarket now….

  7. I actually saw this product tonight at Walmart. Someone threw it in the freeze section by the ice cream. Just needs a warm body……

  8. This doesn’t sound good at all but does remind me of high school and how I used to buy Reese’s magic shell strictly for pouring into my mouth. It took me a year to realize this was both disgusting and bad for you.

  9. Hey Kayla, I have to give it to you this is one of the strongest reviews here to date, still I have to wonder if this product would be appropriate for someone such as myself, that is a gun-toting, slightly deranged, sun-damaged hobo (do not judge me) Still if what you are saying is true then I can safely try this product without fear of it bringing down the original that I know and love.

  10. Dr McPeppy cracked me up, but I don’t think I would try this product.
    The only thing Dr. P is good for is rum…leave the ice cream out of this!! 😉

  11. Dr. Pepper is one of my three favorite flavors of all time, so I am beyond delighted to try this. I also enjoyed your liberal use of the nickname, “Dr. McPeppy.”

  12. if u guys would actully try this stuff its pretty good on icecream but only icecream by itself it kinda taste like very sweet cough surp with drpepper.

  13. I’m so curious to try it now…even though I’m sure I won’t like it, your review tempts me…
    I wonder though…rootbeer and rum is good, and Dr. Pepper and rum is good…so is it a far stretch to say that if rootbeer and vanilla ice cream (aka a rootbeer float) is good….that Dr. Pepper and vanilla ice cream would be good?

  14. My husband and I love this stuff! It is a staple around our home, and we use it for more than just desserts. Great on roast, pork steaks, chinese and more!

  15. Try ham steaks, waffles, chocolate cake (instead of icing), or my personal total addiction…Mac ‘n cheese! My problem is I can no longer find it…within 10 counties! Please, help me find some more…will travel as far as I have to for my sticky, ooey, gooey, yummy cherry dr pepper sauce. all hail the inventor!
