Where is Wendy the Snapple Lady When You Need Her?

Dr. Pepper Snapple Group Inc. began trading on the New York Stock Exchange today. Shares of the third largest soft drink manufacturer in the U.S. which was recently spun-off from Cadbury Plc. opened lower than expected, showing that investors are reluctant to invest in a company that makes and markets Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper, despite the fact that normal Diet Dr. Pepper really does taste more like regular Dr. Pepper.

Mr. Pibb declined to comment for this story.

Yeah, Diet Dr Pepper does taste more like regular Dr Pepper than pureed cat feces does, so I guess they can say that about it. Saying something "tastes more like" something else, really isn't saying much.

monogodo - I think the implication is that it tastes more like regular Dr. Pepper than Diet Coke tastes like regular Coke, or Diet Pepsi tastes like regular Pepsi, which I have to agree with. But I agree that pretty much anything "Diet" tastes mostly like an aspartame laden rubber tire.

aitocath/charlotte - The last time I saw Wendy the Snapple lady was on VH1's I Love the 90's. She was EXACTLY the same. It was awesome!
