Is Dr Pepper the national drink of Texas?
Growing up, I certainly thought so. This was back in the day when you’d put coins in a Coke machine (we called all sodas Cokes, til we needed to be specific), open the tiny rectangular door, and pull out a cold glass bottle with a metal lid.
Now THAT’S been awhile!
Now, I haven’t seen a Dr Pepper in a glass bottle since Dublin Bottling Works had to stop making its amazing Dublin Dr Pepper. (And don’t even get me started on that.)
These days, I substitute a delicious fountain Dr Pepper from Chick-Fil-A. They have the BEST fountain Dr Peppers, in my opinion.
I’d really rather have a good Dr Pepper than dessert.
