Dr. Joe's comes from Trader Joe's, which is located in Los Angeles, Tucson, AZ, Phoenix, AZ, and other places in the West. Trader Joe's is an all natural store, but I think that they are going the wrong direction with Dr. Joe's - All Natural SPICY Soda. My palate was already turned off before I took the first sip. Not surprisingly, Dr. Joe's was rather difficult to get down. It earns a one Dr Pepper can rating.
