DR PEPPER FACTS

Dr Pepper was invented in Waco, Texas in 1885, at Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store, probably by Charles Alderton, a young pharmacist working there. It became known nationally, along with hamburgers and hot dogs on buns, and ice cream cones, at the 1904 World's Fair Exposition in St. Louis.

There is no period after the Dr in Dr Pepper, it was dropped from the name in the 1950s.  There is no record of how the name came about, and the company museum has collected more than a dozen different stories of the name's origin.

Dr Pepper is the oldest major soft drink manufacturer in the United States.

One 12 ounce can of Dr Pepper contains approximately 40 mg. of caffeine.

Many recipes have been created using Dr Pepper, including beef stew, pies, muffins, sweet potatoes, and jellied salads. Some can be found on the companies website:  www.drpepper.com
