Can I add flavor to a soft drink?

I'm diabetic now, and had to switch to diet Dr Pepper, which isn't very good, but the cherry diet dr pepper is pretty decent. It's my new all day drink, lol. They're not making it as much lately, and are putting out the Zero Sugar version instead, but it doesn't taste nearly as good. (I don't know why they did this bc no old ingredients were taken out- only extra ingredients added, but there's barely any cherry flavor now.)

Can I add cherry flavor to it, (and possibly Cap Super Sweet), to get the flavor back? Which cherry concentrate should I get, and how much should I add?

Do you have a favorite place to buy flavor + inexpensive chubby gorilla Unicorn bottles (1, 2, & 4oz) without high shipping?
-I need them to have a neck big enough to mix into, preferably, and be fat enough to stand up without falling over while I'm doing it, if possible. If not- I still need them to stand up, and have a neck big enough to at least get a funnel into. I have get them with the long needle/ Unicorn tip to be able to fill my new tanks with tiny top-fill slot. The design of the tanks (freemax Fireluke 22) makes it hard to get the bottle tip close enough to fill, due to the top not sliding out of the way enough, so it has to have a long thin tip.
Thank you

The flavors we use, are fine to use in food and drink, a lot of people use them in baking too, how much is really what you need to test, just add slowly till you find what you like :)

I only really use BCF for flavors now, they are reliable and fast to ship, also a bonus they have great CS too.

My last lot of gorilla bottles I got off amazon, with prime free shipping, works out cheaper than most vape/flavor stores, so might want to look on amazon to find what you like ;)

Thanks. I was in a bind so ordered super sweet and bottles from Amazon, but the price of flavor is 3x that of the supply places. If it weren't for paying the shipping & additional $8 it wouldn't be bad. (Since we are showing our ID to sign for vape mail, why is there any call to ban shipping it now?)

Look at politicians, follow the money. You more than likely will find it traces back to Big Tobacco, or states. The states gambled away the settlement money Big Tobacco gave them.

That settlement money was to be used to get smokers off smoking, prevent others from becoming smokers. It was not really used for that at all. There might have been some effort by way of patches, gums but the lion's share went toward betting on hedge funds.

Then, vaping comes along and takes away near two billion from Big Tobacco's sales. Well Big Tobacco then squeezes the states because they're not getting agreed up revenue from states.

See even under the settlement agreement states had to ensure Big Tobacco still got revenue. That could be by way of nicotine replacement products, patches and gums, or more cigarette sales tax collected. States were not keen to do that though as raising taxes cigarettes could lead politicians getting voted out.

So, states not having their settlement money now have to squeeze somebody. Gee, guess who? Ultimately it all boils down to money and not public health.

I use them to flavor my snus. Cherry is my favorite to use. Inawera and Sobucky are my favorite for a nice cherry. Bull City Flavors is definitely the best for ordering.
There are a few inawera cherry flavors: cherries, cherry concentrate, etc.
I'm also reading I may need a black cherry also/instead. (It's to add to diet dr pepper to create diet dr pepper cherry, which is hard to find now.) What exact flavors should I get?
Thx!

It all disgusts me, the politics and greed behind it all. I had to stop watching the news every night bc I'd get so angry no one wanted to be around me. Life is much more enjoyable NOT hearing about the black hearted politicians. It seems no matter how much energy I put into fighting things like this, it doesn't matter a bit. These people are selling their souls, mother & daughter's health, (& our futures) without a 2nd thought.

In the same boat here.
