The Dr Pepper shortage is in the past and to celebrate, the Texas-based brand has released a brand new Dr Pepper Zero Sugar soft drink line. If you are a diet Dr Pepper drinker don't worry, your diet soda isn't going anywhere. Made with 23 signature flavors and zero sugar, it's the sweet treat that can't be beat.
Available in three flavors: Dr Pepper Cream Soda, Dr Pepper Cherry, and original, the zero-calorie is sweetened with a combination of aspartame and acesulfame potassium. Aspartame is an artificial sweetener sold under the brand names NutraSweet and Equal. Acesulfame potassium is sold under the brands Sweet One and Sunett. Both additives are 200 times sweeter than sugar without calories.

I got the chance to try Dr Pepper Zero Sugar (specifically the Dr Pepper Cream Soda Zero Sugar) the other day and was pleasantly surprised at how flavorful it was and its calorie count. We never have soda in the house so this was quite the treat to sip on after working in the garden pulling weeds. The only time I've had diet soda prior to this was the diet Pepsi and diet coke my friend's parents kept stocked in the fridge along with whole milk. Whenever I ate dinner at her place we would have to drink a glass of milk with dinner before we could grab a can of soda.
