Stop what you’re doing and focus, because there’s a new Dr Pepper flavor that will change everything you thought you knew about soda. While we love the Dark berry sip, there’s a Dr Pepper Icing on the Cake beverage that is birthday cake-flavored.
Wondering why you haven’t seen this fun flavor on shelves? It’s because it’s super exclusive. As Twitter user @JKMerm, who posted a picture of the can, explained, “I’m part of the Pepper Pack, which is the Dr Pepper brand ambassador program! They sent me a few cans of this for my birthday!”
The maroon, white, and sprinkle-covered can indicates that the Icing on the Cake flavor is limited-edition. The only mention we’ve seen of it is from Pepper Pack members who received a few cans for their birthdays. The earliest photos we’ve seen of this Dr Pepper flavor dates back to August 2018, so it’s not that old for people who are in the know.
Along with the cans of birthday cake-flavored Dr Pepper, lucky recipients also get party poppers, a “happy birthday” hat, a balloon, and a special note:
“To the Birthday Pepper, Since you’re a die-hard Dr Pepper fan, your birth month is, well, kind of a big deal to us. So to celebrate, we’ve created a limited-edition Birthday Cake-flavored Dr Pepper and some exclusive party supplies to help commemorate your existence. Don’t drink it all in one place. Or do. It is YOUR birthday after all. Happy birthday, The Dr Pepper Team”
Now to answer the question weighing on your mind: "HOW DO I GET THIS FLAVOR?!", show your devotion to the soda by applying to join the Pepper Pack here. Be ready to explain why you love Dr Pepper so much, and fingers crossed you’ll be sipping on Icing on the Cake at the next celebration for your year around the sun!
