REVIEW: Dr Pepper Dark Berry

Dr Pepper Dark Berry

What is Dr Pepper Dark Berry?

Dr Pepper’s 23 flavors has added another – the ominous “Dark Berry,” which is inspired by the upcoming independent arthouse film, “Spider-man: Far From Home.”

WARNING – This review contains SPOILERS!

Relax, one guy who hasn’t seen Avengers: Endgame yet, I’m just reviewing a soda.

How is it?

To me, it smells like Dr Pepper with a drop of Robitussin – a mix of everyone’s two favorite syrups, corn and cough.

Dr Pepper Dark Berry in Glass

I had a hard time even deciding if it tasted more than just a sweeter regular Dr Pepper, but the linger of the “fruit” additive started to take over. It was definitely “berry,” but which?

The answer, while not in the ingredients, can be easily found online, I just wanted to guess first.

I locked in on possibly blueberry…and black cherry?

SPOILER ALERT – Spider-man kills Than…Relax, that one guy, I’m just messing with you.

The titular “dark berries” are blackberry, black currant, and black cherry.

I hate to be swayed, but it made perfect sense. I realized it tasted like three-parts Dr Pepper mixed with one-part Cherry Coke, or like one of those old-timey Boylan’s style Black Cherry sodas you always see in Jewish Delis and trendy bagel joints.

So, while it’s not really that “far from” regular Dr Pepper’s normal flavor, it’s still worth a few sips.

Is there anything else you need to know?

Dr Pepper Dark Berry Ticket Deal

While I’ve seen some Spidey characters (particularly Mysterio for obvious reasons) popping up on promotional cans, I managed to buy the lamest bottle ever. Although, there is a movie ticket deal on the label, so that’s kinda cool.


Dark Berry is the Andrew Garfield of Dr Pepper flavor variants. It’s still pretty good, but probably too saccharine, and will ultimately be forgotten. There have been superior Spider-men and Dr Peppers.

I look forward to Mr. Pibb’s collaboration with DC.

    1. I can’t really have caffeine at all and wish they would add caffeine content to the nutrition facts when they post new items and reviews. I would assume it does since reg Dr. Pepper does
      and was also wondering about some of the Starbucks fruity iced drinks they review too.

  1. Hey, thanks for personally referring to me twice during this review! I enjoyed the “shout out”, but don’t worry about spoilers, as I’ll probably never see that movie.

  2. I love this new Dr Pepper Dark Berry so much that i bought 50 12 packs & restocked 50 12 packs of the regular Dr Pepper, i have always been a Dr Pepper fanatic ever since it came & i only drink Dr Pepper as my #1 soft drink. I wish that they would not limit the edition of the dark berry, it’s just as good

  3. I am normally a huge dr. Pepper fan to the point that I can’t go a day without a sip. Unfortunately the new dark berry flavor was a disappointment. It tastes like liquid cotton candy, which is kind of gross. ?

  4. It’s hard to find at Walmart
    They had an outrageous price for 12 cans 34.00
    It is really good I’m disabled and can’t go shopping so I’m
    Very tasty will keep looking for it
