I'm ashamed of myself because I consider myself a pretty big fan of Dr. Pepper, but apparently I'm not that big of a fan because I missed the introduction of a new Dr. Pepper flavor!

About a month ago Dr. Pepper sent out special packages to some fans on their birthday announcing the release of a new flavor of Dr. Pepper called 'Icing On The Cake Dr. Pepper', which is a birthday cake flavored Dr. Pepper. This sounds absolutely up my sweet tooth alley! This package was loaded down with all kinds of goodies like party poppers, balloons, birthday crown and a six pack of the Icing On The Cake Dr. Pepper along with a special note stating:

To the Birthday Pepper, (cute!)

Since you’re a die-hard Dr Pepper fan, your birth month is, well, kind of a big deal to us. So to celebrate, we’ve created a limited-edition Birthday Cake-flavored Dr Pepper and some exclusive party supplies to help commemorate your existence. Don’t drink it all in one place. Or do. It is YOUR Birthday after all.

Happy Birthday,

The Dr Pepper Team

Apparently this flavor of Dr. Pepper has been around since summer of 2018 because its showed up on certain social media accounts last year and resurged again this summer.


Thanks to the Today show, one instagrammer describes this new flavor like "rich vanilla frosting from a bakery, [and you can] still taste the Dr Pepper underneath the vanilla."

This makes my mouth water even more after reading that line! Now, if my birthday could come around a bit sooner than next spring I just might be able to get my hands on a can of this sweet sounding stuff! Are you hearing me Dr. Pepper?!!
