Soda vaguely resembling Dr. Pepper, popular in the southern US, as far as I can tell.

We grew up with Dr.Nut kind of like Dr.Pepper but more of an almond/cherry taste. Very yummy! I think you are correct in stating it was popular down south I grew up in Louisiana. The can was pink with a squirrel holding a nut.

Dr. Nut soda was made in New Orleans from 1936 to 1978. World Beverage was the original company. While it sold well in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, Dr. Nut could not compete with the many independent soft drinks from Texas, and especially, Atlanta-based Coca-Cola. Critics of Dr. Nut claim the flavor had some resemblance to schnapps or bourbon.
