Dr. Pepper (to pronounce Dr. doctor) is oldest of the American Soda S . In the beginning manufactured artisanalement in a Hardware of Waco (Texas) by called Morrisson, the drink was its first success when it was put on sale in 1895. Morrisson which was thus the creator of this drink named it of a rather atypical name: Dr. Pepper. Reason of this choice: a doctor of Virginia being called Charles Pepper was the first to give an employment to Morrisson.
Aspect and tasteThe aspect of Dr. Pepper is visually the same one as that of a soda to cola: brown, and with the same type of bubbles, i.e. extremely semi-sparkling.
Its taste points out a little the bitter almond, which evoked a long time for the French schoolboys the odor of the paste. One obtains a rather nearby taste, although nonidentical, while placing some drops of bitter almond gasoline in a soda with unspecified cola (6 drops per liter).
