There's a common rumor that says that Dr Pepper (a carbonated soft drink) contains prune juice. The company claims it does not, but it does have cherry flavoring which may account for the taste that people claim is prune flavored.

The ingredients list on the back of a can of Dr. Pepper simply says "natural and artificial flavors." So, at the most I would think that it might contain some prune derived flavoring chemicals. I'd think that if it actually contained prune juice they would have to list it on the can in case someone is allergic to prunes.
Dr. Pepper is all the flavors of the fountain. The original idea was to create a soda that tasted like a soda fountain smelled when you first walked in. You are likely to get vanilla, cola, cherry, chocolate and other common flavors. The Prune Juice thing is a pernicious rumor with no basis in fact

Synthetic Forms of Vitamins C, A and E can be Potentially Dangerous.
Scientific studies have proven that the synthetic form of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) can actually thicken the arterial walls of the heart by as much as 2.5 times. Other synthetic forms of Vitamins A, E, etc, can be potentially just as dangerous.
About 40% of North Americans are currently taking a multi-vitamin and do not realize synthetic vitamins are so much different from whole food vitamins.
A whole food vitamin comes right from the vegetables and fruits we eat and has many things attached to it that make it a “whole vitamin”. When we purchase synthetic vitamins, they are manufactured in a lab and the body cannot use them because they are stripped of all the other components that make a vitamin whole. As a result, the body must pull these missing nutrients from other parts of the body just to be able to utilize these synthetic vitamins.
The Greatest Vitamin in the World is proud to have created the highest standard when it comes to nutritionally supporting a healthy body. We don’t just consider whole food vitamins; we have also considered the extreme importance of giving the body chelated minerals, vegetable enzymes and probiotics, which can be equally as important when it comes to nutritional support.
Educating yourself about nutrition is important to your health and well-being. Please check our web site to learn the shocking truth about many of the vitamins on the market today

I recently attended a party at which a young man claimed his dr. pepper exhibited 24 flavors. He made no claims relative to the original 23 flavors. He did prove that his beverage exhibited a 24th flavor: vodka. Oddly, it was surprisingly yummy.

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