Mr. Sipp

Posted in 2 Drs, The Collection with tags , , , on May 17, 2008 by mattmp

As excited as I always am to add another Mr. to the collection, Mr. Sipp is just plain boring. Boring can, but even more importantly.. boring taste. What does it take to get a little pep (if you will) these days. It is made by Iris and distributed at Smart & Final stores in Arizona, california, Florida, Nevada, and Mexico. Mr. Sipp earns a two dr pepper can rating.

Mr. Pig

Posted in 2 Drs, The Collection with tags , , on May 17, 2008 by mattmp

One part dr, three parts bitter, five parts water gives us Piggly Wiggly‘s Mr. Pig. I had been searching several Piggly Wigglys around the South for some time to find Mr. Pig, and I finally tracked him down in Columbia, SC. It seems that this drink can only be found in 3L bottles. The saving grace of Mr. Pig is his funny name, and he earns a two Dr Pepper can rating.

Mr Pibb

Mr Pibb must be Dr Pepper’s most successful competitor. Mr Pibb is a product of Coca-Cola, and has now mostly been replaced by Pibb Xtra.¬† Despite what fast food and restaurant workers across the world might say, Mr Pibb is not the same thing as Dr Pepper. Mr Pibb tastes extremely weak in comparison to Dr Pepper. Mr Pibb earns a two Dr Pepper can rating. (I also might suggest that Mr Pibb should go back to school for more education before he tries to compete with the Dr.)

Doc Holiday

The Doc Holiday can features a rifle and a man on the front (who I can only assume is both Doc Holliday and the owner of the gun) and claims to be loaded with “double barrels of flavor”. Doc Holiday¬†was bought here, though it’s apparently no longer available. So after waiting a month for my shipment to arrive as if I were waiting for a decoder ring, I was terribly disappointed. Instead of the double barrels of flavor that I was hoping for, all I got was a punch in the mouth. Weak flavor and very little kick. Averaging the poor taste with the strong historical deference, Doc Holiday earns a two Dr Pepper can rating. This drink should not be confused with Doc Holiday, which also looks quite tasty.
