Dr. Kist is not by definition a "generic." It is an imitation Dr Pepper, but we only know this because of the name. The soda tasted nothing like Dr Pepper, tasted flat, and on top of everything, came in a dusty bottle.
This was the rating that Dr. Kist got when I had only tried it in a 20 oz. bottle. I came across the can when I was stopped at a gas station in Ft. Stockton, TX with a flat tire. They happened to carry it. Dr. Kist from the can was not bad... actually, it was pretty good. With this new evidence, Dr. Kist earns a rating of three and a half Dr Pepper cans. Dr. Kist is bottled by Leading Edge Flavors.
