The company claims that an old recipe for “D Peppers Pepsin Bitters,” found in a recipe book from the drugstore where Dr Pepper was invented, has nothing in common with the recipe used today.
The next online seller I turned to has an ad up on e Bay listing Dublin Dr Pepper at an astounding ,999 for a six pack.
He drank a few bottles every day and was known to go out with a set of cold drinks and hand them out to anyone who wanted one.
Kloster also had a collection of Dr Pepper memorabilia unlike any in the country: it began with Dr Pepper calendars his wife saved him during World War II and grew to fill multiple basements and warehouses, with vintage bottles, every piece of advertising material Dr Pepper had put out, metal signs, clocks, thermometers, and old bottling equipment. What made Dublin Dr Pepper truly famous, though, was a decision Kloster made in the 1980s.
Pops is a “soda ranch” in Arcadia, just off Route 66, that boasts a collection of 700 different types of soda, and in 2014 a Redditor reported that Pops still had the “real discontinued Dublin Dr Pepper.” There was even a photo.
Arcadia is about 300 miles north of Dublin, which in Texas terms, is relatively close, so it made sense that the shop might have bought up enough of the soda to last awhile.
