Dr. Pepper announced has a new flavor: Dr. Pepper Dark Berry.  It marks the first new taste in five years from Waco-born soft drink.

Dark Berry will combine the flavors of blackberry, black cherry, and black currant (Yes I had no idea what black currant was and had to look it up) and will be available May 1st for a limited time. 

It's part of a campaign to promote the upcoming Marvel film 'Spider-Man: Far From Home', and will feature the main villain Mysterio on the packaging. Definitely some good strategic timing with the announcement coming during the peak of all the Avengers frenzy.

Also, check it out - there are already empty cans being sold on eBay because of course there are! So if your area doesn't get any cases of the new flavor for some reason but you've just go to have a Mysterio can to add to your collection, you can probably find them online.

This isn't the first time the soda company has tried a limited time flavor for the summer, with some working well and some flopping. What do you think, does Dark Berry sound like something you will try?
