History of Dr Pepper

Dr Pepper, created by pharmacist Charles Alderton in Waco, Texas, in the 1880s, has a rich history as one of America's oldest soft drinks. Initially sold as a tonic in Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store, it gained popularity for its unique blend of 23 flavors. The drink's name, allegedly inspired by Dr. Charles T. Pepper, a colleague of Alderton's, was trademarked in 1906. Over the years, Dr Pepper has become a beloved beverage, known for its distinct taste and iconic slogan, 'What's the worst that could happen?'
