    I don’t like Dr. Pepper cold so I can’t imagine heating it to the boiling point. With this said, I love that the big breakthrough in presenting Dr. Pepper in new ways only had to do with turning the dial up on the stove.

    I’ve heard that voice over guy’s voice 1 trillion times. I think he got every single commercial gig in the 1960’s.

    As you suggest, here are some excellent recipes to go along with that Dr Pepper brew:

    wow, yeah, can’t imagine drinking that….man, i know what you mean about the commercial announcer though……why is his voice so familiar!?! i wish i could figure it out…….there have been so many great vice actors, but it seems like the only household names are casey kasem and don pardo…..

    I remember heating up some Dr. Pepper when I was a kid, taking one sip and spitting it out in the sink. This commercial is fantastic– I love that they try to create the illusion that it’s a really sophisticated drink to serve at holiday parties (glamorous people, candles, fireplace, no kids) when in fact it’s soda out of a can you can get from a freaking vending machine.

    I baked a ham steak in Dr. Pepper (and a few other ingredients) one time and it was really good but I can’t imagine drinking boiled Dr. Pepper!
