Oh what a Sheltered Life I've Led.

As far as I know in Canada (or at least Ontario) if you want something that tastes like Dr. Pepper you have a choice between Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper. There's no cheap knockoffs or imitators. In my limited travels to the states I came across Mr. Pibb which is Coca-Cola's answer to Dr. Pepper, I tried it and didn't think much of it. I was always surprised that there weren't more cheap knockoffs.

Matt Preston (via. Ryan North) has totally exposed the sheltered life I've been living. He's found and ranked over a hundred different varieties of Dr. Pepper knockoffs. Here are some my favourite names:

Dr. Riffic
The Dr. Soda
Dr. Pop
Mr. Pig
Dr. Dynamite
Dr. Aahh
Dr. Shasta (Where's Dr. Scheise?)

I think I'd be living a better life if I could respond to a question with, "I'm drinking Mr. Pig!"
