Dr Pepper is a well known soft drink marketed in North America, South America and Europe by Dr Pepper Snapple Group. It was invented by Charles Alderton. The headquarters are situated in Plano, Texas, a suburb of Dallas. There is also a no-sugar version, Diet Dr Pepper, as well as a line of flavored versions first introduced in the 2000s. W.W. Clements, a former CEO and president of the Dr Pepper/7-Up Company, described the taste of Dr Pepper as one of a kind, saying "I've always maintained you can't 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."[1] Image File history File links Download high-resolution version (950x700, 1307 KB) Summary Dr Pepper logo. ...

Overview and history

The exact date of Dr Pepper's conception is unknown, but the U.S. Patent Office recognizes December 1, 1885 as the first time Dr Pepper was served. It was introduced nationally in the United States at the 1904 Louisiana Purchase Exposition as a new kind of cola, made with 23 flavors. Contrary to popular belief, Dr Pepper was far from being the first carbonated soft drink, or even the first soft drink in the United States for that matter. Vernors Ginger Ale and Hires Root Beer share the title for first American-born soft drink, both debuting in 1866. However, Dr Pepper's introduction in 1885 did precede the introduction of Coca-Cola by one year.

It was formulated by German pharmacist Charles Alderton in Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store in Waco.[2] To test his new drink, he first offered it to store owner Wade Morrison, who also found it to his liking. After repeated sample testing by the two, Alderton was ready to offer his new drink to some of the fountain customers. Other patrons at Morrison's soda fountain soon learned of Alderton's new drink and began ordering a "Waco". Alderton gave the formula to Morrison. A popular belief is that the drink was named after Morrison's former employer in Texas, but this has been disputed by the Dr Pepper company itself.


There is also a Dr Pepper Museum in downtown Waco. It is located in the Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company building in downtown Waco, and opened to the public in 1991. The Artesian Manufacturing and Bottling Company building was the first building to be built specifically to bottle Dr Pepper. The building was completed in 1906 and Dr Pepper was bottled there until the 1960s. The museum has three floors of exhibits, a working old-fashioned soda fountain, and a gift store full of Dr Pepper memorabilia.


Dr Pepper almost became a Coca-Cola brand in the mid-to-late 1980s. Dr Pepper became insolvent in the early 1980s, prompting an investment group to take the company private. Several years later, Coca-Cola attempted to acquire Dr Pepper, but was blocked from doing so by the United States Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Around the same time, Seven Up was acquired from Phillip Morris by the same investment company that bailed out Dr Pepper. Upon the failure of the Coca-Cola merger, Dr Pepper and Seven Up merged (creating Dr Pepper/Seven Up, Inc., or DPSU), giving up international branding rights in the process. After the DPSU merger, Coca-Cola obtained most non-U.S. rights to the Dr Pepper name (with PepsiCo taking the Seven Up rights)[citation needed].

Distribution

In the United States, Dr Pepper Snapple Group does not have a complete network of bottlers and distributors, so the drink is sometimes bottled under contract by Coca-Cola or Pepsi bottlers. Prior to the initial Cadbury Schweppes investment-turned-buyout, 30% of Dr Pepper/Seven Up products were produced and distributed by Pepsi bottlers, and another 30% by Coca-Cola bottlers. The remaining 40% was produced and distributed by independent bottlers (mainly consisting of pre-Dr Pepper/Seven Up-merger regional bottlers) and the Dr Pepper/Seven Up Bottling Group.

Cadbury Schweppes Bottling Group was created May 2, 2006 by the Cadbury Schweppes buyout of The Carlyle Groups holdings in the Dr Pepper/Seven Up Bottling Group. ...


Presently, Dr Pepper is mostly reliant on the Cadbury Schweppes Bottling Group (known as Dr Pepper/Seven Up Bottling Group until June, 2006) to bottle and distribute its products in 30+ states. Coca-Cola and Pepsi have essentially stopped bottling and distributing CSAB products in favor of in-house alternatives, although regional exceptions can be found. It is notable that Pepsi bottlers have been dropping Dr Pepper without an equivalent replacement. Previously a Pepsi bottler without a Dr Pepper franchise would typically bottle Dr. Wells, and Coke bottlers would make Mr. Pibb.

In Canada and Poland, Cadbury-Schweppes has licensed distribution rights to PepsiCo. In Mexico, Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, The Netherlands, Slovakia, Finland, Austria, Czech Republic, Belgium, and Norway, Cadbury-Schweppes owns the trademark and distributes the product. In Spain, Turkey, and Greece it is almost impossible to find as it is usually imported from the United Kingdom in particular supermarkets. In almost all of the other countries of the world, The Coca-Cola Company purchased the trademark from Cadbury-Schweppes and distributes the product. This mixed worldwide ownership of the trademark is due to antitrust regulations which prevented Coca-Cola from purchasing the rights everywhere. Dr Pepper is also available in Japan and South Korea. Although not locally bottled in Australia or New Zealand any more, imported cans of Dr Pepper are often found in independent convenience stores (dairies) and specialist stores (i.e. The Original Lolly Shop chain).

Much of the soft drink industry in the United States stopped using sugar in the 1980s, in response to a series of price supports and import quotas introduced beginning in 1982 that increased the price of sugar above the global market price. As a result, most U.S. soft drinks, including Dr Pepper, now use high fructose corn syrup instead of sugar.[3] Image File history File links Size of this preview: 800 × 389 pixelsFull resolution (1601 × 778 pixel, file size: 828 KB, MIME type: image/jpeg) Various Dr Pepper available in the US File history Legend: (cur) = this is the current file, (del) = delete this old version, (rev) = revert to this old...

A handful of U.S. bottling plants still use sugar to sweeten Dr Pepper. Perhaps best known is the Dr Pepper bottling plant in Dublin, Texas, the product of which is known as Dublin Dr Pepper. In the 1980s, plant owner Bill Kloster (1918 – 1999) refused to convert the plant to high fructose corn syrup.[4] Since 2003, Dublin Dr Pepper has expanded its distribution to most of Texas and the Internet. Other bottlers still using sugar include Temple Bottling Company, in Temple, Texas, Ab-Tex in Abilene, and West Jefferson Dr Pepper (WJDP) of West Jefferson, NC.

On March 25, 2007, Coca-Cola bottlers in the Dr Pepper Heartland commenced sales of 16 ounce cans of Dr Pepper made with cane sugar and featuring a logo with 'Old Doc' himself on them. This product is scheduled to be a limited time release.


Name formatting

The period (fullstop) after "Dr" was discarded for stylistic and legibility reasons in the 1950s. Dr Pepper's logo was redesigned and the text in this new logo was slanted. The period made "Dr." look like "Di:". After some debate, the period was removed for good (it had been used off and on in previous logos), as it would also help remove any medical connotation with the product.[citation needed] A full stop or period (sometimes stop, full point, decimal point, or dot), is the punctuation mark commonly placed at the end of several different types of sentences in English and many other languages. ...


Miscellany

The company sells more Dr Pepper in the Roanoke Valley area of Virginia than any other metropolitan area east of the Mississippi River. Roanoke is approximately 90 miles east of the hometown of Dr Charles T. Pepper, which is Rural Retreat, Virginia. In the past, the city has been named the "Dr Pepper Capital of the World," and broke world records for its mass consumption of Dr Pepper in the late 1950s. [2] Dr Pepper donated a portion of its sales revenue in the Roanoke area to finance restoration of a circa-1950s neon Dr Pepper sign, which has the company's "10, 2, 4" logo from the time, in downtown Roanoke. Dr Pepper eventually became known as the official soft drink of the state of Texas. However, a recent movement has sprung up trying to replace it with Big Red. Although this campaign is in its infancy, it is said to be gaining momentum.

This became grist for a number of pop culture references and parodies (one parody was used in the rap group N.W.A's Efil4zaggin album released in 1991 with Eazy-E doing the voiceover).

Dr Pepper was introduced to the Australian market in 1997 with a short-lived TV advertising campaign and low priced 280 ml cans sold through supermarkets. Dr Pepper was subsequently sold in 1.25 litre plastic bottles alongside other major brands until 2003. Cadbury Schweppes stated that the product did not gain acceptance by Australians, whose detractors complained that the drink tasted like "cough syrup"[citation needed] (a tag also given to Sarsaparilla).

Dietary brands

  • Dietetic Dr Pepper was introduced in 1962 (cans) and 1963 (bottles). Sales were slow partly due to the public misconception that the drink was for diabetics, and the company soon renamed the product Diet Dr Pepper. The product was renamed Sugar Free Dr Pepper in May 1971, and in 1991 it was reformulated to use aspartame and renamed Diet Dr Pepper.[8] Diet Dr Pepper, after posting a 6.4% gain in sales volume, became the 10th best selling soda in 2006 according to Beverage Digest magazine.[9]. From 1991 to 2006, the beverage was marketed using the slogan "Diet Dr Pepper tastes more like Regular Dr Pepper." In 2006, a new marketing campaign was launched comparing the taste of Diet Dr Pepper to desserts instead of regular Dr Pepper with the slogan "There's nothing diet about it." [10]
  • Caffeine Free Diet Dr Pepper was first introduced in 1982 under the name "Pepper Free", as company research indicated they needed a product to fill a niche for the health-conscious consumer. [11] The name was later changed to the less-ambiguous "Caffeine-Free Diet Dr Pepper" for unknown reasons.

Flavor variations

The Cherry Vanilla variety.
The Cherry Vanilla variety.
  • Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper was released in some areas on October 15, 2004. The beverage tastes similar to Dr Pepper but has stronger cherry and vanilla flavors added. Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper was the first drink in the planned "Soda Fountain Classics" line of beverages from Dr Pepper, a range of drinks designed to taste similar to popular soda fountain drinks from the 1950s. It is now available in all areas of the U.S. It was available in Canada for a short period of time, but it has ceased production as of mid-2007.
  • Dr Pepper Berries & Cream, and its diet version, were released in most US locations in April 2006. It is the second beverage in Dr Pepper's "Soda Fountain Classics" line of drinks. In Canada, the diet version of the drink was available approximately from May to August 2007 and the non-diet version was available from September to December 2007. Berries and Cream and Diet Berries Cream have recently been discontinued.
  • Diet Cherry Chocolate Dr Pepper was introduced as a limited edition flavor on November 21, 2007. It will remain available until April 2008. It became available in Canada in early January 2008. Checking with Dr Pepper's official website there are no plans to introduce a non-diet version. If consumer response is favorable, the flavor may become permanent.[citation needed] The taste is similar to Canfield's Diet Cherry Chocolate Fudge Soda but with the distinctive Dr Pepper flavor. It was also reviewed in a humorous manner by Youtube Partner King Laffo.
  • United Kingdom's version of Dr Pepper is manufactured with sugar instead of high fructose corn syrup. Along with Sprite and Fanta soft drinks, a 'Zero' version was introduced, meaning no added sugar/low calorie, but maintaining a taste more in line with regular Dr Pepper than its diet variant.
  • During the Super Bowl, an estimated 192,572,000 people have seen the Dr. Pepper commercials.

Legal/trade history

Dr Pepper was a frequent role player in the 1990s antitrust history of the United States. As part of these activities, economists and the courts have even weighed in with the opinion that Dr Pepper is a "Pepper" flavored drink and not a "Cola." In 1995, the FTC blocked a merger between The Coca-Cola Company and Dr Pepper on grounds that included concerns about a monopoly of the "Pepper" flavor category of soft drinks. In 1996, Dr Pepper was involved in an antitrust case involving Mike Jones, the Dallas Cowboys, NFL Properties, Nike, and other commercial interests active at Texas Stadium in Irving, Texas. In 1998, the "Pepper" flavor soda category was a major part of the analysis supporting an antitrust case between Coca-Cola and Pepsi. | logo_caption = | seal = US-FederalTradeCommission-Seal. ...

Besides an operational fountain, the Dr Pepper Museum also recreates the soda fountain where Dr. Charles Alderton first mixed the flavors that make up Dr Pepper (none of which is prune juice—a popular, albeit false, rumor about this classic drink.) In this exhibit, an animatronic, life-size Dr. Alderton tells the story of his invention.
The next exhibit showcases the original Dr Pepper bottling company, including the well from which they drew their artesian spring water, as well as a multitude of historic soft drink bottles and manufacturing equipment, and an interactive study of the pressure in a soft drink bottle.
From a classic "I'm a Pepper!" shirt to a 6-pack of glass-bottled sodas, everyone is sure to find the perfect souvenir to remember their visit of the Dr Pepper Museum.
