Dr. Pepper Lawsuit Brings An Official End To Dublin Dr. Pepper
from The Dallas Observer:
If you have but a single can or bottle marked “Dublin Dr Pepper,” don’t open it. It’s a collector’s item as of this very moment. That’s because as of 5 p.m. today there is no more Dublin Dr Pepper: From here on out, per a settlement agreement just announced in the case filed by Plano-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group in June, the Dublin Dr Pepper Bottling Company will now be known as Dublin Bottling Works Inc. And it will no longer manufacture Imperial Pure Cane Sugar Dr Pepper at its bottling plant.
This better not mean the end of cane sugar-sweetened Dr. Pepper at the American Airlines Center in downtown Dallas. I’d be lying if I said I had a chance to drink bottled Dublin Dr. Pepper enough for this to truly bug me that much, but I’ll be damned if I have to drink that syrupy crap during Stars/Mavericks games!
