Are you a Pepper?

Dr Pepper is 125 years old this year….. Now that just makes me want to run out and buy a can, alas that’s not so easy in Australia, as the product was withdrawn from the market in 2003 (having been introduced in 1997). Now I’m not a big fan of pop but if ever I do drink the stuff Dr Pepper is always top of mind. I know they have lots more flavours now, but I like the original one well enough which was brought to us by Charles Alderton in Waco, Texas way back in the 1880’s. I don’t have access to the product here, but forget that and still look for it if buying pop. I think this is clearly because it has such memorable branding. I even remember the jingle from back in the 1980’s…

I’m a Pepper, he’s a Pepper,

She’s a Pepper, we’re a Pepper

Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper, too?

Be a Pepper. Drink Dr Pepper

Were you a Pepper? Ok so it might not read well, but try and imagine Barry Manilow singing it, which I am sure he did but am open to being corrected on that one (my friend Adam should know being the expert he is on Barry).

Anyway, I just wanted to say a Happy 125th Birthday to Dr Pepper

    Look for a teenie, tiny town called Lowood 😉 I think the place is called Karen’s Kitchen or something similar (loose 50’s theme), she’s got cans!!
