Dr. Pepper Obsession

One of my findings of living in Texas is that everyone LOVES Dr. Pepper. Like so much so that its the only Soda they will drink, well next to Coca-Cola. If a restaurant doesn't have Dr. Pepper and only Pepsi products its not good. I find it amusing. So the other day at lunch my co-workers and I had the Dr. Pepper discussion. Some of them like Diet Dr. Pepper and some like regular Dr. Pepper. Here are some fun facts:
  • It was invented in Waco, TX (on a side not whenever I think of Waco, TX, I automatically think of David Koresh and the cult. I always think of it as Wacko instead of Waco)
  • Corporate office is in Plano, TX
  • You're supposed to have one at 10, 2, and 4
  • You can make "Hot Dr. Pepper" which is warmed up Dr. Pepper with a lemon slice.
  • It doesn't contain prune juice (so if you feel regular after drinking Dr. Pepper its probably another reason)
  • The contents are certified Kosher

Just some fun facts about Dr. Pepper.

BTW I don't really drink Soda and when I do I usually have Diet Coke or Sprite. Its b/c caffene gives me migraines. I usually have 1 Soda a week.


  1. Kosher, that is good to know. I will have to tell my Jewish friend that he can drink it. :D

  2. Oh, and same here about the Waco thing.

  3. I dont drink pop but if I ever indulge and have one it is a Dr. Pepper. When I lived in Texas I always laughed that they called all pop 'coke' and I called it pop. And they would say, "what kind of coke do you want?"
    great post! I really like your blog! dr.pepper..what???!!!
