Never thought that would ever happen. I initially hated the taste of it, went and bought a bottle every now and then to see if things had changed, but no dice. Then one day, the local grocery store had imported several cans of Dr Pepper, like this one: Wow! I don't know if it's because it's on a can rather than a plastic bottle, or that it has different ingredients, but this was something else! Along with Pepsi, this is now my alternative to trusty ol' Coke. No idea if Coke and Pepsi tastes differently in the States, but I like it just fine the way it is.
