After discontinuing the flavor just months after its release in 2006, Dr. Pepper is bringing back its Berries & Cream soda — but getting a can will be tricky.
Although it’s been off store shelves for 15 years, Dr. Pepper Berries & Cream appears to be the same soda as before, with notes of blueberry, raspberry and vanilla added to the 23 flavors in the original Dr. Pepper soda.
While this news is exciting for Dr. Pepper fans who love variations on the original, it will be hard to get your hands on this flavor, as it won’t be available in stores. Instead, the brand is giving away cans of berries and cream.

For serious fans, there have been a handful of Dr. Pepper-flavored foods including licorice, cotton candy, cake and even baked beans. You can always make your own Dr. Pepper treats as well, like these brownies that use the soda to provide a unique flavor and help with the texture and moisture of the brownie.
While you wait to see if you’ll win a can of Dr. Pepper Berries & Cream, Mountain Dew is offering fans something new: a boozy version of Mountain Dew soda. Hard Mountain Dew will begin hitting store shelves in February in four flavors: classic Mountain Dew, Black Cherry, Watermelon and Baja Blast.
Not a Mountain Dew fan? Bud Light is making a hard soda that has zero sugar and 100 calories per can. It is available now in Classic Cola, Cherry Cola, Orange Soda and Citrus Soda.
