Dublin Dr Pepper to No Longer Exist as Lawsuit is Settled

In news that will shock Dr Pepper fans across the state of Texas, the specialty brand of Dr Pepper, Dublin Dr Pepper, will no longer be bottled and sold.

The news was first reported this evening by the Dallas Observer:

From here on out, per a settlement agreement just announced in the case filed by Plano-based Dr Pepper Snapple Group in June, the Dublin Dr Pepper Bottling Company will now be known as Dublin Bottling Works Inc. And it will no longer manufacture Imperial Pure Cane Sugar Dr Pepper at its bottling plant.

The Dr Pepper/7up corporation will now take up the bottling of a special version of Dr Pepper with pure-cane sugar.

Meanwhile, the now-former Dublin Dr Pepper Bottling Company issued this statement: “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,” says Dublin Bottling Works vice president Jeff Kloster. “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.”

Before last year’s lawsuit was filed, and now settled, Dublin Dr Pepper used to be allowed to be sold in a six-county Central Texas territory.  The counties were Comanche, Eastland, Erath, Hood, Hamilton and Bosque.
