Blackberry Diet Dr. Pepper - blackberry syrup added to Diet Dr. Pepper is so delicious

Diet Dr. Pepper has been my favorite drink for the longest time.  Yes, I know the diet part of any drink isn’t the healthiest for you, but I have made my peace with it.  This particular drink was all I drank while I was pregnant with my youngest.  Who knows if that is why he ended up the smallest baby I had.  All I know is that I craved Diet Dr. Pepper the entire pregnancy.

And I haven’t stopped drinking it.  11 years later it is my choice of pop.  I even used it in these Cherry Dr. Pepper Jello Squares earlier this year.  What else can I make with it???

Ok, quick question…do you call it pop or soda???  I grew up calling it soda in the East, then I moved to the Midwest and became a pop convert.

Blackerry Syrup and Diet Dr. Pepper

This summer I discovered all the syrups at Sonic that you can add to your pop or slushies.  For some reason the blackberry stood out to me that first day as I read through the list.  One sip of it added to my Diet Dr. Pepper, and I was totally and completely hooked.

So hooked that I did a search online to see where I could buy blackberry syrup for my house.  Torani carries so many different flavors of syrups.  So, to make it worth the shipping I ordered the blackberry and a few others.  I was so impressed with how quickly they showed up at my front door.  I have also seen these syrups in World Market and Gordmans if those stores are near you.

I like to pour my syrup in over the ice first, then slowly pour the Dr. Pepper into the glass.  But really there is no right or wrong way to do it.  Add a few fresh blackberries on top and then go sit in the shade and relax.  It’s the best way to enjoy these last few weeks of summer.

    What a fun flavor combination!! I am definitely going to try this on my next Sonic run too :) And for me it’s soda, from CA. I like the term pop better though. I may start using that just so I can be different!

    We used to call it pop…..moved to MI and they call it soda……I would just always say, Coke, Pepsi or Dr. Pepper…etc….that way I was safe :)
    I don’t drink any of these now….haven’t had a pepsi in 2 yrs…..thanks to Dr. Oz……they are so bad for you… day your kidneys will pay……had a cousin, she had to have a kidney removed due to drinking so much of this stuff…..take my word Jocelyn….you are young enough to still save your health :) my daughter does not let her daughter (12) drink any dark pop…..she is allowed to only have a rootbeer or orange drink or sprite , but only occasionally……these soft drinks have so much sugar in them, and the diet ones are just as bad…..research it online… may change your mind…..I would say one Dr. Pepper occasionally probably won’t kill you….but drinking them regularly will eventually ruin your health…..take it from someone who knows……just sayin…………………

    We have the pop/soda debate regularly in our home. :-) Adding the syrup to soda is interesting. I’ll have to try it.

    I haven’t been to Sonic before, but I’m really tempted to go just to try this! I love Diet Dr. Pepper too, and honestly, with how much sugar we consume as part of recipe testing for our jobs, I think it’s perfectly fine to choose a diet soda (yes, I call it soda!) to help counterbalance that. 😉 Looks fabulous as always Jocelyn!
