reated in the 1880s in Waco, Texas, Dr. Pepper soda is a Texas tradition.
“I’ve always maintained you cannot tell anyone what Dr Pepper tastes like because it’s so different. It’s not an apple, it’s not an orange, it’s not a strawberry, it’s not a root beer, it’s not even a cola. It’s a different kind of drink with a unique taste all its own.” — Charles Alderton, inventor
