Dr. Celeste

Posted in 2.5 Drs, The Collection with tags , , , on May 17, 2008 by mattmp

Suppose that you are at a big birthday party, and the cake has been cut and the slices have been individually placed on paper plates. Which one do you reach for? The flower piece with the most icing and hardly any cake? And do you like some coffee with your sugar? If this describes you, then Dr. Celeste is your beverage. And at 49 cents, that’s hard to beat. For those who generally prefer a Dr flavored soda to Dr flavored syrup, you might want to pass this one by. The Celeste brand line of sodas is distributed by The Pantry and is available in a number of convenience stores across the South. Dr. Celeste earns a two and a half Dr Pepper can rating.

Texas Fizz

Although the name may not necessarily imply it, Phar-Mor’s Texas Fizz is undoubtably a Dr imitation. We must give Phar-mor credit for mentioning the birthplace of Dr Pepper, but the taste really leaves a lot to hope for, so Texas Fizz earns a two and a half Dr Pepper can rating. One of the few remaining Phar-mors can be found in Shawnee, KS.

Dr. W

Dr. W (formerly Dr W) is brought to you by Wegmans grocery store in the New York area. The taste is pretty bland and uninteresting. Dr W earns a two and a half Dr Pepper can rating.

From one Dr. W fan: “As all western New Yorkers know (btw – “Wegs” is a *western* New York grocery chain. We can’t have people thinking it’s down in NYC now…), the whole “W” line of soft drinks are pronounced “Woooo.” As in Diet Wooo, etc. Thus, Dr. W would be pronounced as “Dr. Woooo” for all those WNYers who are not embarrassed of sounding like complete morons. We’re in Buffalo, for heaven’s sake, so who cares?”
