Okay, found it in stores finally. Tastes kind of strawberry-ish to me. Anybody else?

I tried it today. Didn't like it at all. Didn't finish the bottle.

Didn't even know there was such thing. I'll have to look for it in the store. I love Dr. Pepper but if it tastes strawberry-ish I don't think I'll like it.

Tried a bottle yesterday. It was ok, nothing special. I love Dr. Pepper, but this isn't worth buying again. I figured as much, which is why I bought only a single bottle to try for the first time.

I thought it was sort of cherry/cream soda tasting. Reminded me of a Shirley Temple with odd ingredients.

Tried it. Thought it tasted like a watered down Dr. Pepper. Did anyone notice that it seemed to have less carbonation then Dr. Pepper?

Yes, I noticed that it seemed a little more flat. It seems that they are marketing it to the teenager and young adult market. Maybe taste tests have shown they prefer something with less carbonation? I know that companies usually don't launch a new product without plenty of field testing. (Okay, "new Coke" might be the exception) :)

Dr. Pepper is my all time favorite drink, so I was curious about the Red Fusion. It's disgusting. Gagging. Never again.

Don't like it by itself, but I mixed it with Dr. Pepper and really liked the flavor combo....kind of like cherry DP.

I tried it and I really liked it.I also like Dr. Pepper and the Red Fusion tastes somewhat like the original Dr. Pepper just with some added flavors like cherry or something.

I tried it, though its best application would be as a base for mixing with something flammable before consuming. Its right up there with "New Coke" as far as being a winning new product.
