Look for "natural ingredients" or "natural flavors".

I checked there also but was leaving that for Jim Becker as he frequently references Snopes. I also noticed hot Dr Pepper as one of the FAQ's on the Dr Pepper website.

Well that's a relief! I don't like it anyway but at least it doesn't make you run to the bathroom!

Back in the '70s, they ran an ad campaign based on "the most misunderstood soft drink" that at least in part took advantage of some of these rumors. They even had an ad that stated that Dr Pepper was a soft drink, not pepper sauce.

Bottom line, there may be some exceptions now, but back in the day soft drinks were made of sugar, flavorings and fizz. Nobody would have wasted money adding an actual fruit juice.
