Nectar of the Gods

DSC_0185

I gave up my Monster Energy Drinks in May.  It was a hard transition.  Until I focused on the nectar of the gods, Dr. Pepper.  I prefer a fountain Dr. Pepper with crushed pebble ice over the can, but in a jam, the can is beautiful.  Who could say anything bad about this?  Some people may have their coffee addictions, but I have my Dr. Pepper, or as some prefer to call it, “DP.

What is the drink that you speak of? Bwwwwhahahaha!!! I agree, Dr Pepper is best from the fountain with pebble ice. I only drink a bottle if I'm at work...just not the same.

Diet Dr. Pepper is my addiction. It is readily available in rural southwest Missouri, where we lived for about 6 months. I was IN HEAVEN! Every fast food restaurant, every regular restaurant, every gas station...yum. You've got to have it from the fountain though. I'm not such a big fan of it from a can. Bottle is okay. And if you can get it from Sonic with Diet Cherry in it as well? You'll pass out and die a happy person. :)

I'm a Pepper! I love that same ice too. I frequent Sonic at Happy hour to get my "fix". It's my worst habit so I think I'm doing ok. You must drive thru and order a Chocolate Dr. Pepper. It's one of those things to do before you die you know, because I said so.. he he

When I was in high school, I was addicted to DP and Nacho Bell Grande's from TB. Now I am addicted to Diet Coke. It's a sickness that I embrace.

How am I expected to listen to such a bias voice of support in my quest to get off this stuff?!?!?! Maybe seeing your love affair will quench my cravings. But, more likely, maybe not.

I am in complete agreement with you on the DP, it's like my morning coffee. I LOVE it with Sonic ice. I want an ice machine like that at home. And just so you know, it's a really bad day in my house when I am out of DP. Heads will roll.

I have missed Dr. Pepper ever since I found out I was pregnant LAST September. Now we have Chick-Fil-A right down the street that uses the pebble ice and I look forward to the day that I'm no longer nursing - that will be my first stop!

Nectar of the Gods? Love it. I don't drink much soda- I have other vices- but when I do it's usually a Dr. Pepper!!!

LOL - GREAT shot! I had my DP addiction years ago. Then it was DP diet cherry. Now it's Diet Pepsi - with the occasional Diet Coke to move me along. What WOULD we do without our caffeine to keep us doing - and keep us taking a sweet shot like this for Tuesday :)

I LOVE DP!! This is a great shot. I prefer mine in a bottle, though, not quite as photogenic ;-)

When I read the title in my reader my first thought was coffee...then tequila (LOL) I am totally addicted to caffeine; preferably coffee. But I LOVE diet Dr Pepper! My cousin introduced me to Coke Zero & Pepsi Max (Pepsi Max kept me up ALL NIGHT+ which is a rare feat with 2 kids 5& under) I also prefer my soda out of a can; DH likes it from a fountain....I worked in restaurants for too many yrs to like anything from the soda machine & now I'm craving a Dr Pepper LOL

I love Dr. Pepper, too. Reminds me of growing up. My mom would get it as a treat for us.

I used to have such an addiction to DP then switched my addiction to the DP (Diet Pepsi). This year I've finally broken that addiction. I do miss it (both) and have to quench that thirst.

I'm more of a Coca-Cola person, and I just recently gave it up....argh! But I can definitely relate to the addiction :)

Never doubt my randomness and my use of pictures. I take photos that I may archive and use them months later. I mean really, wouldn't this be a fabulous submission to use as a stock photo?

There are many names for it, but rabbit turd ice is my favorite name.

When I saw the name "Kristy" come up as a comment in my e-mail, I knew it was you. Sonic ice is the best ice in the World.

I know!!! It's looks ice cold with the droplets of sweat glistening down the can. Seriously I might just have to find an errand to run later so I can go get some.

It was a beautiful and much needed Dr. Pepper. It was fresh from a bucket of ice, so yes there were droplets and ice sweat.
