Dr Pepper, also known as DP. Created and sold in 1885 Waco Texas, one year before Coca-Cola existed, anyone who says it tastes like cherry coke is an idiot. If they are similar in taste, its cherry coke that resembles Dr Pepper not the other way around.
Dr Pepper contains 39.6 milligrams of caffeine per 12 ounce can. Dr Pepper was invented by a pharmacist by the name of Dr. Charles Alderton. Dr. Alderton began selling the original syrup un-carbonated at Morrison's Old Corner Drug Store in Waco Texas in 1885. At the time is was being sold as a vitalizing energy tonic. Customers asked to add carobonated seltzer-water to the syrup and they've been selling it carbonated ever since. Morrison the drug store owner later took over the business of selling Dr Pepper and teamed up with a local bottling plant owner Robert Lazenby.
Morrison & Lazenby founded the Artesian Mfg. & Bottling company which later became Dr Pepper/ 7UP Inc.
Dr Pepper/ 7UP Inc. is NOT owned by Pepsi, it is NOT owned by Coca-Cola. But in fact is owned by Cadbury Schweppes of London (they bought it out in 1995). Many people are confused why Dr Pepper is sold along side Coke & Pepsi products, Dr Pepper independently has contracts with Coke, Pepsi and various other bottling plants worldwide, this is because of the lack of bottling plants owned by Dr Pepper.
The ingredients in the unique beverage are classified but the company is clear it is composed of a variety of fruit flavors, prunes not being one of them.

There's no period in Dr Pepper
The greatest soft drink to have ever been created, made originally in Waco, Texas.
It is brilliant.
touch my Dr Pepper and risk castration...
The oldest soft drink, came into fruition in 1885. The period was dropped during the 50s. There were never any prunes as a part of the formula, however it is a unique combination of 23 different fruit flavors!
Dr Pepper is an odd tasting drink, but yummy none the less.
A soda who claims to be a doctor. You know all those scientists who claim to be doctors? Dr Pepper taught them everything it knows. Yes, I know it's hard to believe after all these years that Dr. Eggman taught by a soft drink.
In honor of the fine soft drink who taught them how to build stuff, Dr. Light and Dr. Wily built Protoman out of Dr Pepper cans.
the best soft drink ever, and the only one that does not copy coca-cola. It was cooler before they created a bunch variations (like berries and cream) and before they released a bunch of stupid commercials (like the "23 Flavors" and "Hold it" series). still the best though.
Successful businessman: Hey, you want some Dr Pepper?
Homeless man: Hell no I hate the stuff.
Successful businessman: You are going to hell.
The world's greatest soft drink. It was created by God himself and is the source of all that is good and awesome. It is pure life.
"The Meaning of Life is Dr Pepper."
