As the NFL season draws nearer, we are here to enjoy all of the trappings of football. One of the best parts about a football Sunday (or Monday night) is heading to the store to pick up all sorts of goodies to enjoy during the game.

If you are in search of a beverage that is going to make game day more interesting, Dr. Pepper is here to help out.

The “FANtastic Chocolate” soda is about to arrive and we cannot wait.

The “FANtastic Chocolate” cans are decorated with footballs and chocolate sauce, so you know that they are good. The cans are not going to be on store shelves, though, sorry to say.

If you would like to get your hands on some of this soda, you’ll need to follow some very simple instructions. Dr. Pepper lovers are able to get a pack by taking the time to scan their proof of purchase QR code on the Dr. Pepper items that they have purchased.

Once you have done that, you will have the ability to create your own “Pepper Perks” account. Dr. Pepper shared about the new drink on Instagram:
