Dr. Pepper Pork Chops

Vicki Butts (lazyme)


Dr. Pepper was created in the 1880s by Charles Alderton in Waco, Texas. To test his new drink, he first offered it to store owner Wade Morrison, who also found it to his liking. Patrons at Morrison's soda fountain soon learned of Alderton's new drink and began ordering a "Waco". Alderton gave the formula to Morrison, who named it Dr Pepper.
