BTW, what I meant to say is Dr Pepper is hard to find as a FOUNTAIN drink. Not an issue in stores.

Here's another question I have, since this thread now seems to have the attention of some people in the know; why is it that almost all restaurants (with the exception of the new serve yourself fountains in McD's & BK), have "Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite", and maybe Orange Fanta? There are so many more choices, those basic 3 get old after a while. That's why I like to come across a place that does Pepsi; they also usually have Mountain Dew.

No offense taken at all! That's the great thing about the country we live in, we're allowed to make our own choices(for the most part) concerning such things! I enjoy Pepsi products but not Pepsi, I drink Coke, not at work of course lol

i LOVE fountain soda! the trick is, you must test every place in town with a soda fountain to see who has the best! just follow the morning soda drinkers to the preferred spot!

i think a good fountain drink reigns supreme! but you gotta find em! if you are out of your element, its just luck of the draw.

on a side note, i quit sodas again..........there is no support group for soda addicts like myself.

oh, and dr.pepper is the the best...no point in even trying to argue the best soda.

We move a fair amount of Dr Pepper syrup, but much more of the Pepsi etc, perhaps it's because Dr Pep is is distributed by both, I usually see it alongside Coke products in fountain form.

I like Coke because it seems to be "bubblier". Pepsi loses it's carbonation too fast. i think i have cups in the back of my car for every gas station around. If you come in with one of their cups and tell them it's a refill, it's cheaper than buying the fountain drink with a new cup each time. Ask Balota. We stopped at a gas station for a pop in our travels and I had two empty cups for the gas station we were at so we only had to pay for refills. Yeah, I'm cheap. I may be the only woman you all know who hates to spend money.

Back in high school Pepsi used to do the Pepsi Challenge. You did a taste test with unmarked paper cups. We were all Pepsi drinkers at the time. We all picked Coke! They did not put us on the commercial.

See, I have NEVER seen Dr Pepper associated with Pepsi as a fountain drink, only Coke. And, in the stores, it's in the Coke section.

I can state that it is a fact, that Pepsi not only makes Dr Pepper in bottles and cans we also make it in syrup form as well.
The Pepsi I work for is an independent bottler and is based in the SE.
