I taste neither prune nor plum in Doctor Pepper, I get something closer to cherry out of there though.

Pibb uses artificial unicorn shavings an bridge troll urine. I think that is the almost cherry note some people get.

Prune juice resembles Dr. Pepper to me, although not as much as a rotten brown cherry does. The common characteristic is the flavor of oxidized fruit therefore, maybe , raisin juice should work, almost as well. If you add a little bitter almond extract (benzaldehyde) to either prune or raisin juice, they will taste more like a rotten brown cherry or Dr. Pepper.

Thanks. I never noticed it on any supermarket shelf. I will look for it.
