Dr. Bold

As if we needed further evidence of the consolidation of the fake Dr industry, a number of store-brand generics have now been replaced by Albertsons‘ new brand – Dr. Bold. In 1999, Albertsons merged with Jewel, Acme, Sav-On, and Osco Drug, which now all presumably carry this beverage. The taste is highly reminiscent of Dr A+ with a medium body and full flavor, and therefore retains the four Dr Pepper can rating. I will leave the question of why Albertsons went back to a name that included the period (after dropping it in their latest version of Dr A+) to the marketing experts.

    I happen to love the refreshingly bitter taste of Dr. Bold, thank your criticism very much
