A regular shake cost me $3.59.
The shake itself is lighter in color than I expected it to be. It was a neutral beige, whereas I expected a slightly darker tone considering the dark Dr. Pepper syrup I saw the worker squeezing into the cup.
Despite what seemed to be a lot of syrup in my cup, I actually found the Dr. Pepper Shake to be disappointingly low on actual Dr. Pepper flavor. It lacked the distinctive herbal notes that I associate with Dr. Pepper, which has always tasted like a mixture of root beer and cola to me. It primarily tasted like a plain vanilla shake to me with a tiny hint of something akin to licorice on the end note, but I had to really search for it. Dr. Pepper flavor was definitely not at the forefront.
Consistency-wise, the shake itself was very thin. It was immediately drinkable the moment I received it, which some people may prefer. I like my shakes a little thicker personally. I would say that the shake was completely melted within 10 minutes, so I felt like I was drinking a cup of melted soft-serve. And since it was so sweet, I couldn't drink it quickly.
Overall, Burger King's Dr. Pepper Shake was like a Dr. Pepper shake for people who don't actually like the taste of Dr. Pepper at all. If you enjoy the namesake soda like I do, you might find yourself disappointed in this generically sweet concoction.
