Pibb Xtra, a variation on previous product Mr Pibb, is a soft drink marketed by The Coca-Cola Company. As of 2011, it is sold in most of the United States.

History

First introduced as "Peppo" to compete against Dr Pepper,[1], the name was changed in 1972 to "Mr. Pibb" after Dr Pepper sued The Coca-Cola Company for trademark infringement.[2] The original test markets for Mr. Pibb in 1972 were located in Waco, Texas,[3] the birthplace of Dr Pepper, though the Dr Pepper company moved to Dallas, Texas soon after creating the drink.

In 1999, BrandGames distributed a video game through various fast food chains such as McDonald's with a meal and a large Mr. Pibb. It featured a cartoon man similar to the cartoon used on the original Mr. Pibb can, whose mission was to escape from a school inhabited by zombies. He defeated the zombies by burping at them and he could increase his burping capacity by drinking Mr. Pibb. This video game was played on a PC using MS-DOS, and was distributed in floppy disk format (3.5" diskette) and (less common) PC CD-ROM.[citation needed]

In 2001, a new formula called Pibb Xtra was introduced with added cinnamon flavor,[4] replacing the original formula in many parts of the United States.

In 2010, the description on the can was changed to "Spicy Cherry Soda."
