Written by: Pzaz Team

You're probably wondering if Diet Dr. Pepper has caffeine. And, if it does, how much caffeine is in Diet Dr. Pepper? Diet Dr. Pepper is a popular diet soda enjoyed by many and today, we'll answer all your questions regarding Diet Dr. Pepper's caffeine content. Are you ready? Let's get started!

Diet Dr. Pepper History

Diet Dr. Pepper was created in the 1970s by Coca-Cola. Diet Dr. Pepper was created as a sugar-free and calorie-free alternative of the original Dr. Pepper drink. The soda was created to be a zero-calorie alternative to Dr. Pepper.

Diet Dr. Pepper

Today, Diet Dr. Pepper is one of the most popular diet sodas on the market and generates over $2 billion in sales each year. Diet Dr. Pepper is also available in most convenience stores and grocery stores across the United States.

  • Diet Coke Zero Sugar

Does Diet Dr. Pepper Have Caffeine?

Yes, Diet Dr. Pepper does have caffeine. Diet Dr. Pepper has about 36 mg of caffeine per can, compared to the original Dr. Pepper which has about 42 mg of caffeine per can. So, if you're looking for a diet soda with less caffeine, Diet Dr. Pepper may not be the best choice for you. However, Diet Dr. Pepper is a great option if you're looking for a sugar-free and calorie-free beverage choice.

Is Diet Dr. Pepper a Good Source of Caffeine?

When compared to other sodas, Diet Dr. Pepper is a good source of caffeine. However, Diet Dr. pepper isn't a great source of caffeine when compared to traditional drinks like coffee, tea, and energy drinks.

As mentioned above, Diet Dr. Pepper has 36mg of caffeine. Energy drinks like Celsius have 200mg of caffeine per can. Therefore, if you drink caffeine regularly, Diet Dr. Pepper will only give you a small boost.

Diet Dr. Pepper vs. Other Sodas

As mentioned above, Diet Dr. Pepper has about 36 mg of caffeine per can. However, Diet Dr. Pepper is the exception when compared to sodas like Sprite, Root Beer, and Sierra Mist. All three of these sodas are caffeine-free.

Diet Dr. Pepper is also a carbonated drink, but it does not contain any sugar. It gets its sweetness from aspartame, a type of artificial sweetener.

Diet Dr. Pepper vs. Coffee

Diet Dr. Pepper contains significantly less caffeine than coffee. Coffee can contain up to 200 milligrams of caffeine. This means that Diet Dr. Pepper has about 18% of the caffeine of coffee. While Diet Dr. Pepper is not as high in caffeine as coffee, it does still contain enough to give you a boost. If you are looking for a drink that will give you more of a caffeine kick, coffee is the way to go.

Diet Dr. Pepper vs. Black Tea

Diet Dr. Pepper's caffeine content is similar to that of tea. Black tea contains around 47 milligrams of caffeine while Diet Dr. Pepper has 36 milligrams. However, black tea is healthier, because it does not use artificial sweeteners. Tea also has a slightly bitter flavor which can make it an acquired taste.

Final Thoughts

Diet Dr. Pepper is a popular diet soda that, unlike a lot of sodas, contains caffeine. It has been shown to provide some health benefits when consumed in moderation. However, it is important to be aware of the potential risks associated with drinking too much caffeine.
