Can You Find The Recipe For Dr. Pepper?
The recipe for Dr. Pepper is a well guarded secret. Last year it was reported that a man from Tulsa found the recipe for the original Dr. Pepper in a book purchased in an antique store. It turns out this was not true. See http://today.msnbc.msn.com/id/30562206/ for the full story.
Dr. Pepper lists it's ingredients on the can but does not have to give the exact amounts. It also lists "coloring" and "natural and artificial flavors" but the company does not have to specify exactly what these colors or flavors are.
One more recent update on the Dr. Pepper formulation; In November 2009, Dr. Pepper introduced Dr. Pepper Heritage. This drink has sugar instead of the high fructose corn syrup making it closer to the "Dublin Dr. Pepper".
