I heard, back in the day, it had a lot of prune juice in it. Hence the DR part. Don't know for sure though.

Dr. Pepper is a Coke in Texas. But then we call every thing a Coke.

If I had to guess, I'd say it was a mix of Cherry Coke and Vanilla........

I've been wondering that since I was a kid. We spent our summers in Sea Isle City NJ and back in the day there was one vending machine in town and all it had was Dr. Pepper. My brother asked the ? twenty years aro. We couldn't answer it then and we couldn't yesterday!!

Hey Gringo, you are from Corpus and don't know the history of Dr. Pepper?

I vote for cherry coke with extra caffeine - maybe a hint of other spice
The Yahoo answer man says:

"The formula for Dr Pepper is proprietary, but prune juice is definitely not one of the ingredients. It is a blend of many spices and flavor extracts. The color is supplied by caramel especially made for the product"
