Dr Pepper, was born in Waco Texas, at Morrison's, Old Corner Drug Store. Dr. Pepper, is the oldest of the major brand soft drinks that are manufactured in America. Like its flavor, the origin of Dr Pepper, is out-of-the-ordinary it begins with Charles Alderton, a young pharmacist working at Morrison's store, he is believed to be the inventor of the now famous drink. Alderton spent most of his time mixing up medicine for the people of Waco, but in his spare time he liked to serve carbonated drinks at the soda fountain. He liked the way the drug store smelled, with all of the fruit syrup flavor smells mixing together in the air, so he decided to create a drink that tasted like that smell. He kept a journal, and after numerous experiments he finally hit upon a mixture of fruit syrups that he liked.
