Farewell Dublin Dr.Pepper

I don't know if any of you ever tasted Dublin Dr.Pepper, but it was delicious. It was made in the little town of Dublin, Texas.

The company had been in business since 1891. It was the oldest Dr. Pepper bottling plant in the world.

 Dublin DP was better because it was made with Imperial sugar, not high fructose corn syrup. They used the original formula. It was something special, unique.

In June, Dublin would celebrate with the Dr.Pepper Day Festival. It was so much fun. There was live music, games, and free tours of the plant. Each year, a girl was crowned Miss Peggy Pepper. They even baked a huge birthday cake made with Dr. Pepper for everyone to share.


Yes, it is sad. Good bye Dublin DP. I will miss you!

Did you ever taste Dublin Dr.Pepper?


  1. I have only tatsted Dr. Pepper once and I have to say it was not to my taste. But I knwo a lot of people love it far and wide... I am not sure whot he bottler was in Canada, but i don't think it is a popular here as it was say 40yrs ago..

  2. I love Dr Pepper, but I have to say, I've never tasted it from Dublin. Now I guess I never will. One of the reasons I always loved flying SW Airlines was because they always serve Dr Pepper on their flights.

  3. I love Dr Pepper, but have never had Dublin Dr Pepper. Am sad that will never get to try it. My parents have a friend that works for mid-continent and we get good deals on dr pepper and 7up products.
