Dr Pepper was invented in 1885 at a drugstore in Waco, Texas. It is said to contain 23 flavors, and was the oldest major soft drink in the United States until Coca-Cola debuted one year later. It is rumored that Wade Morrison named the beverage after a Virginia doctor, Charles T. Pepper, who was the father of a girl Morrison had fallen in love with at the age of 18. However, the Dublin (Texas) Dr Pepper Bottling Co. Museum notes that census records show that the doctor who inspired Morrison’s name lived over 40 miles away in Christiansburg, Virginia, at the time of Morrison’s first job as a pharmacist in Waco.
