10 Dr Pepper SECRETS That Will Change How You Drink It!!!

There are so many things you do not know about
Dr Pepper. You may drink it, but you drink it without
being fully informed! Here is a list to change your drinking experience
by giving you some fun facts about the product you love! The 10 Dr Pepper Secrets That Will Change
How You Drink It! Dr Pepper gained recognition at a World’s
Fair According to notes which are now archived
in a museum, Dr Pepper found its way into popular culture through the 1904 World’s
Fair which had taken place in St. Louis. Apparently, the 1904 World’s fair also showcased
the ice cream cone, the hamburger, and the hot dog. So Dr Pepper was not in bad company that is
for sure. Can you imagine walking around a fair like
this and tasting all of these things, for what very possibly was not only your first
time, but also the first time of many? How cool! Perhaps you have a grandparent or great grandparent
who attended? Or maybe even a great great grandparent? Imagine them there? Drinking a Dr Pepper for the first time ever!? Even if you did not have a relative there
you can surely appreciate the momentous occasion it must have been. How grateful we should all be to the World’s
Fairs for aiding in bringing products to the national consciousness. There is no period in the name Let this blow your mind. Just let it wash over you. You and everyone else have been so wrong all
this time. Not a little wrong. So wrong. Think back now to any time you have written
the name of this soda out… have you? Have you texted it to someone asking them
to pick it up? Have you written the name down on your grocery
list? Have you written it in your diary as you set
the scene of your evening? “Dear Diary, Last night Nick and I were
at the movies together on our first date. It started off so well when we both ordered
a Dr. Pepper.” If you have written out this name, did you
not add the period, like the rest of the world would? You probably did! But, alas, there should be no period – no
dot – nothing, between Dr and Pepper. Go figure! Now you know! So retain that information and next time you
have to write this name down you will do it right! You can even correct the ill-informed people
around you who will very likely still be using the period. You are now in the know! You can drink Dr Pepper hot Well… can’t you drink anything hot? Technically you can, but you may not want
to. In the case of Dr Pepper you just might. You might want to try drinking Dr Pepper hot
because the company actually did try to market it as a hot beverage. One winter the company tried to stimulate
sales by touting that the soda could also be enjoyed warm in the cold winter months. The idea was to integrate the drink into the
holiday season. As you can imagine, if drinking Dr Pepper
on a cold day became the equivalent to drinking a hot cocoa on a cold day, then their dream
would have been a reality and their sales would have soared. Every winter season they would have had a
spike in sales and perhaps their name would have even been worked into Christmas songs. But, the hope did not become a reality. Dr Pepper is not a common warm holiday or
winter beverage. That being said…. You can give it a go next time it is nippy
outside and you are feeling adventurous. Maybe, just maybe, you will absolutely adore
the taste of a steaming cup of Dr Pepper. If you do you love it you may share it with
your friends. The hot Dr Pepper trend may yet still spread… You just never know what can happen. Dublin, Texas is getting a special version
of Dr Pepper First of all it is important to note that
the Dr Pepper most people are drinking is made with high fructose corn syrup. High fructose corn syrup is apparently not
the best thing for you. However, if you are drinking Dr Pepper in
Dublin, Texas then you may not be exposed to the high fructose corn syrup at all. This is because there is a variety of Dr Pepper
in that region that is still being made with cane sugar. Cane sugar is a more natural product, and
therefore, better for you. The reason this area is still using cane sugar
and the rest of the world has moved on is because for a very long time the Dr Pepper
that was being bottled in that area was being bottled by a small company called Dublin Bottling
Works. This company served the soda in a retro looking
glass bottle and continued to make it with cane sugar in keeping with the “retro”
vibe of the bottle. Or, actually, the bottle was keeping in line
with the old way of sweetening the drink. This version of Dr Pepper even had an addition
to the name! It was called Dublin Dr Pepper. However, in 2012 the Dr Pepper Snapple Group
bought the franchise rights in the area and discontinued this particular line of Dr Pepper. Though the company dissolved the regional
name and bottling of the product, it agreed to continue making the “real sugar” version
of Dr Pepper in Dublin Texas. You can visit a Dr Pepper museum Next stop Waco Texas to visit the Dr Pepper
Museum! Open most days at ten in the morning, the
Dr Pepper museum is a great place to bring the family, bring a date, bring a friend,
and explore! Obviously you can visit their website for
more information, it is the twenty first century after all. On the museum’s website you will not only
find information about the museum, such as location and so on, but also many fun activities! There is a scavenger hunt, a quiz, and even
an online store! Nice! If memorabilia is your thing then you will
love the website shop and you will love the museum! It celebrates Dr Pepper in the most retro
and simultaneously modern way. This museum is also cool because it has a
huge collection of objects related to Dr Pepper specifically, the soft drink industry, and
the various other brands that make the industry. The collection is also made up mostly of donations! So cool! In fact, you may have some items that you
want to get off your hands and the museum may want! Consider donating to the museum! There is nothing like some wholesome family
fun paired with some neat bits of knowledge and history! Prune juice in Dr Pepper? Apparently this is a hot topic. It has been contested over time. Some people have claimed that Dr Pepper contained
prune juice and other people refuted this claim. The truth of the matter is there is no prune
juice in Dr Pepper. Case closed. However…. We must all be aware that we are not the keepers
of the Dr Pepper recipe… So, actually we can never really know if there
is prune juice in Dr Pepper. Furthermore, we do not know the whole entire
history nor all the Dr Pepper recipes over time. There may have been a little bit of prune
juice in one iteration of the drink. We just do not know. Hot topics, like this one, while seemingly
silly can also be great sources of debate and a great way to test your palate. What side of the prune fence are you on in
regards to Dr Pepper? What do your taste buds tell you? What does your stomach tell you? Prune juice is a good drink to go to if you
need to get your bowels moving… does Dr Pepper also get your bowels moving? These are intimate questions, but still they
are valid questions when considering whether or not the infamous Dr Pepper recipe contains
prune juice. We will have to continue to speculate on this
one. There is a Dr Pepper lip balm Many millennial women will know this fact
because they used the lip balm when they were young. Remember ladies? Lip Smackers…! Millennials will remember how they likely
received Dr Pepper Lip Smackers in loot bags at birthday parties or bought it during trips
to the mall. They may have become introduced to the soda
through the lip balm. They may have loved the soda and wanted to
be able to lick their lips and taste Dr Pepper without ever drinking it, hence the lip balm. Maybe, they bought it so that they could have
Dr Pepper kisses. Nothing like swapping spit while tasting Dr
Pepper…. Right? Maybe not. This is unclear. We’d have to give kissing with Dr Pepper
lip balm a go to really know. If we are keeping with the times that this
was likely worn in, we would also have to call our best friends on a land line after
said kissing (the land line also has to have a cord and be attached to the wall) to tell
them all about our kiss. Then, and only then, would we know what Dr
Pepper kisses are like. If you desire a Dr Pepper kiss now, you can
get it – it’s still available! You can go ahead and buy yourself the Dr Pepper
lip balm and lather it on, have your kissing session, and then you may be excused from
the other necessities. Instead, you can text your friends about it
in a group chat, post a quick boomerang of you reapplying the Lip Smackers to your lips
post kiss, and hashtag the whole event. #drpepperkisses #firstkiss #lipsmackers #imsoretro
and so forth. Make sense? Dr Pepper has many flavors – Including Birthday
Cake Like many other sodas, Dr Pepper offers fans
a variety of versions that they can enjoy while still retaining the classic Dr Pepper
feel that they know and love. There are many different flavors of Dr Pepper
available. Dr Pepper also offers a caffeine free version
and a diet version of the drink. There is even an icing on the cake version
which makes the soda kind of taste like a birthday cake. How unique! Not many other soda companies have tried that
one before! So, which one will you crave? Which version has become your favorite? How many have you tried? Are there some that you have been wanting
to try? Are you on a Dr Pepper flavor hunt? So many questions to match the numerous flavor
options offered by Dr Pepper. Find your answers and your flavors to personalize
your Dr Pepper experience! The Dr Pepper recipe was almost found in 2009 In 2009 a guy named Bill Waters purchased
an old store ledger from an antique shop in Texas. Allegedly this ledger contained a recipe for
“D Peppers Pepsin Bitters”. Hmm…. Very interesting. This recipe was a mix of mandrake root and
syrup (and yes, mandrake is a real kind of root not just a shrieking Harry Potter variety). The story goes that the ledger was then brought
to auction, claiming that it contained the real recipe to Dr Pepper. But, as Dr Pepper Snapple Group suggested,
and auctioneers agreed, the recipe was far more likely a recipe for a digestive aid rather
than the soda. So, even though there was a possibility of
finding the real OG Dr Pepper recipe and sharing it with the world the reality is it was not
the real recipe and it was not shared with the world so all is still a mystery for every
day consumers. We will remain in the dark, needing to get
our Dr Pepper fix by buying the product outright rather than concocting it at home. So be it. Dr. Pepper is not legally a cola when Coca-Cola and Pepsi came to market long
before Dr Pepper did they worked hard to insure that they would have close to no competition
in the coming years. The way that Coca-Cola and Pepsi did this
was by getting a stronghold on the bottlers; meaning, these bottlers were tied to contracts
which stated that they basically could not work with other colas. This is some big time bullying. In this situation Coca-Cola and Pepsi are
the kings of the hill and poor little Dr Pepper is the new kid who wants to play, but just
cannot get to the top. When you look at it this way, and you now
know and love Dr Pepper, you wonder how it ended up getting to the top of the hill so
it could play fair with the other colas… right? You are also still wondering how and why Dr
Pepper is not legally a cola… well this plot thickens. So, Dr. Pepper cannot play at the top of the
hill with the rest of the cola gang, we got that, but in 1969 a judge ruled that due to
the unique flavor of the drink that it was not actually a cola anyway. So the bottlers could work with them and not
defy the deals they had made with Coca-Cola and Pepsi and Dr Pepper could get to the top
of the hill without issue. So by being dubbed ‘not a cola’ Dr Pepper
was actually given a chance to play with its peers and, in a way, become a drink that we
imagine to be a cola. Funny how that works. Treat yourself to more and tap that screen

  1. Another Great Texas Invention! When I was growing up in Nashville in the late 60s we used to go to the local Soda Shop and they would serve us Piping Hot Dr Pepper. It was great for cold Winter days!

  2. There is a medicine called Theraflu that is kind of like Nyquil in powder form that you drink like a hot tea, i imagine hot Dr pepper tastes the same.

  3. I've got a 1970's Neon Lite Clock that I received as a high school graduation gift back in 1977 by a good friend who bought it Brand New from a Gift Shop…

  4. Isn't prune juice healthy? I mean, people are drinking kale kombucha, I think it's time to get over the whole "prune is yucky" thing.

  5. Is it its anniversary or something? Last night I watched the try channel taste it. It's my favorite soda, has been since I was kid, but I can't drink it unless is morning because otherwise it'll keep me up at night. The only caffeine I have near regularly is coffee. I can't do caffeinated soda vey often. Fortunately, they make decaffeinated Dr Pepper now!😍 (But I should be trying to cut back on sugar. Diet soda just doesn't taste the same. And I can only find the decaf by the case, no six packs or single bottles.)

  6. I'd be happy if t the UK's version of Dr Pepper had "unhealthy" high fructose corn syrup in it, instead of being forever ruined by the foul tasting Aspartame that the UK government is forcing manufacturers to put into non-diet drinks nowadays. I used to like Dr Pepper, but alas – no longer 🙁

  8. 3:21 …but it did become my own ''cool Fall eve on the beach by a bonfire hot bev'' of choice. Or at an unexpectedly too cool Spring eve campfire. Just pop the top a little, put it at the edge of the coals.
    We even had a handle that made any (old style, bottom ridged 1970's) canned soda or beer can into a mug! Alas, we stupidly threw it away when can bottoms changed shape. Nobody knows what we're talkin' about – even old people.

  9. Dr Pepper makes an amazing marinade for beef! You can also simmer a pot roast in it. Lots of great recipes using Dr Pepper online!

  10. Diet Dr Pepper is probably the only soda I've had that tastes better than the normal, non-diet. Only cuz the normal Dr Pepper is way too sweet. I like the diet. It's the only diet soda that I don't have to lie when I say I like it like i do with other diet sodas cuz I only drink diet. Every once in a while, I'll buy a regular Coke and drink a few sips and toss the rest.

    Can I ask how you came up with the name of your channel? 🙂

  11. Like KFC has 11 herbs and spices, Dr Pepper has 23 secret ingredients. I love the Diet Cherry Dr Pepper. I guess I have to add 1 more flavor to the secret mix 😁💜🇺🇸😜

  12. My husband drinks ONLY Dr Pepper and nothing but! I drink it too just not a 12 pack in 1 or 2 days like he does. Our 3yr old daughter even likes it(steals drinks from us every chance she gets).

  13. The only thing I liked about the video was when it showed a part of the piss drinking part in Jojo's Bizzare Adventure

  14. What about the sugar free Dr Pepper in the blue can? It was sweetened with saccharine. This was before aspartame aka nutrasweet came along and they changed the name to diet Dr Pepper

  15. "You will only drink agnostic beverages: Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper. Because what flavor is it? It is neither root beer nor cola. Nobody knows for sure what it is. Nobody can be sure."

  16. Barely anyone in the US put a period after dr for doctors anyway. Excuse me like most people nowadays say “anyways” (not a real word for everyone that says that).
