The Dr. Pepper Museum

by VeronicaG

Who would have thought touring an old bottling plant would be so interesting--but it was!

The Dr. Pepper Museum is housed in a former bottling plant, constructed in 1891 in Dublin, Texas--a small community pretty much swallowed up by the city of Waco.

What makes this particular location stand out, is that it's the only franchise that still prepares their Dr. Pepper soda with pure cane sugar. All other bottling plants use the less expensive high fructose corn syrup. It really does make a difference in the taste according to my two Dr. Pepper devotees!

Inside the museum you'll see a storefront memorializing the Old Corner Drug Store* (pic #2), a robotic Dr. Alderton telling how he devised his secret recipe, Dr. Pepper collectibles, bottling machinery, a gift shop (pic #3) and one very busy cafe (pic #4).

We found a $.50 discount coupon on Dr. Pepper's website, which we used towards admission which was regularly $6 for adults; $4 for seniors and $3 for students and kids.

Hours are Mon-Sat. 10 am-4:15 p.m. Sun. 12 Noon to 4:15 p.m. Allow at least 1 hour to tour and don't forget to stop by the cafe---many good tasting treats await you there! A Dr. Pepper float anyone?

*FYI: The recipe for this popular drink was created by Charles Alderton, who worked in the Old Corner Drug Store owned by Wade Morrison. Morrison named the drink after the father of a young woman he lost his heart to, but the relationship never came to anything.

Once sold only as a soda fountain treat, it was discovered by a shrewd businessman named Sam Houston Prim who tasted it one day and liked it! He then founded the first bottling plant in Dublin, Tx.

A Life Size Animatronic at Dr Peppers

by keeweechic

A life size animatronic Dr Alderton tells the story of his invention. To test his new drink, he first offered it to store owner Morrison, who liked it. After repeated sample testing by the two, Alderton offered his new drink to some of the fountain customers. They liked it as well and in 1885 after 2 years of testing, America’s new and unique flavour was made and sold in Waco.
