Dr. Pepper fans, you might want to sit down for this one: A new Dark Berry flavor is on the horizon.

The limited-edition flavor will be released nationwide on May 1, Dr. Pepper confirmed to Newsweek.

“Dark Berry takes the classic Dr. Pepper taste that fans already love and brings out its dark side with intriguing fruit flavors like blackberry, black currant, and black cherry,” a representative said in a statement.

Woah … that sounds like a lot.

People who attended the FanX Salt Lake Comic Convention posted photos of the new Dark Berry Dr. Pepper cans. The packaging suggests that Dr. Pepper has teamed up with Marvel to promote the new Spider-Man: Far From Home film, which will premiere on July 5.

But is it actually good? The few people who have already tried the fruity flavor seem pretty impressed.

“I was fully expecting to think this limited edition Dr.Pepper was going to taste pretty gross,” one Instagrammer wrote. “It was de-LIGHTFUL! (sic)”

Another taster said that “it was actually pretty good! It was sweet, but good.”

Well, there you have it. The dark and moody flavor will be available for a limited time only, so get ‘em while you can.
