Summer fun is around the corner and a new beverage puts a taste of the tropics front and center. Ready for that first taste of Dr Pepper Creamy Coconut?

While some beverages might seek celestial inspiration and others might believe that they enhance the flavor of every food, Dr Pepper has stayed true to its roots. The beverage's original 23 flavors are and will always be front and center in that iconic beverage. With the new Dr Pepper Creamy Coconut, the additional flavor enhances, yet does not overpower, what makes the original flavor a favorite refreshment.

Recently, Dr Pepper has engaged its fan base with special flavors. From recent limited edition bold spiced offering to fruity strawberry and cream infused beverage, the unique offerings make people excited to taste that new sip.

With the Dr Pepper Creamy  Coconut, the tropical note is clear as soon as the can is opened. It does not overpower, but it invites that first sip. Almost like a wave ready to wash away any of those cares, the drinker can almost feel the warm, sunny day that does not have a care in the world.

While the coconut flavor is there, it does not over power the traditional 23 flavors. It adds a nuance, a subtly that makes it enticing. In a way, it is a refreshing escape, like that beach moment with toes in the sand.

The creamy aspect is less clear. While there have been dirty soda trends over the years, this description is less about the mouth feel and more about the overall flavor. It captures the luscious taste but never feels heavy or weighty.

As the only coconut-cream-flavored dark soda on the market, the Dr Pepper Creamy Coconut will fly off the shelf. Personally, this soda would be amazing served super cold or slightly slushie/frozen. While it would be a little bougie to serve it in a half coconut, it would make for an epic presentation. The summer party host who can pull off this idea would get all the views.

Get that little umbrella ready because the beverage of the summer is here. Dr Pepper Creamy Coconut hits store shelves from May through July. It will be available in both Regular and Zero Sugar options.
