The years go faster and faster. It’s unfathomable that we wrote the obituary for Dublin Dr Pepper one year ago today.

From the piece: Let’s pass the mic to Dublin Bottling Works vice president Jeff Kloster who had this to say “”We want to thank our many customers for their support of our family-owned business during the past 120 years, and we want them to know that Dr Pepper is still a big part of Dublin,we hope customers will continue to visit our town, the W.P. Kloster Museum and Old Doc’s Soda Shop, where they can still enjoy Dr Pepper sweetened with cane sugar.”

Classy.

The raw avarice of the Snapple Group brought its full bear-ish power down on a small Texas town. And Dr Pepper has not crossed our lips since.
