Dr Thunder

Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club’s Dr Thunder (formerly Southern Lightning) earns a very respectable four Dr Pepper can rating. My guess as to why the name changed is to make the drink flavor more recognizable. The taste seems slightly sweeter than Dr Pepper, but perhaps too much so.

    What a fabulous compilation!

    And what a fabulous lesson in contrasts.

    I wonder what’s going to happen when Cott stops supplying Wal-Mart with Dr Thunder. Are we going to have a repeat of Doc Shasta to Dr. Shasta? I hope not!

    Low prices are great, but at what cost?
