Way back in 1885, Dr Pepper was created in Waco, Texas. Now, the soda wants to go back to its roots. Dr Pepper is petitioning to become the official soft drink of Texas. The Change.org petition already has 16,403 loyal fans’ signatures. The goal is 25,000.
According to the petition, Dr Pepper is the oldest major soft drink in the U.S. “Like any Texan, Dr Pepper has only the deepest pride and appreciation for its home state…Dr Pepper has a rich, storied history in the great state of Texas and being named its official soft drink would mark a new milestone for the beloved brand to celebrate for generations to come.”
To help celebrate its goal of becoming the Official Soft Drink of Texas, Dr Pepper has created special edition bottle labels inspired by the state itself. There are 15 unique labels “with artwork depicting some of the state’s most iconic landmarks and landscapes.” Any Texan who is a Dr Pepper fan will be absolutely obsessed with these.
The bottles are only available for purchase in Texas (no surprise there), and in these cities specifically: Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston, and Waco. I imagine that the petition has a good chance of reaching its 25,000 signature goal, because as it turns out, people are pretty passionate about Dr Pepper and about Texas.
One person wrote, “Dr. Pepper is my life and deserves to be the official soft drink of Texas.” Another supporter says, “Dr. Pepper is the drink of texas. I’m 45 and I’ve been drinking Dr. Pepper since I was a kid. Born in Texas raised in Texas.”
So, Dr Pepper fans in Texas: Get to it! Sign the petition and then collect all the cute bottles. They’re only available for a limited time, so make sure to get them as soon as possible.
Do you think Dr Pepper should be the official soft drink of Texas?
