Dr Pepper has started a peition urging the Texas State House to make the beverage the Official Soft Drink of Texas.
The Change.org petition says Dr Pepper wants to "mark a new milestone for the beloved brand to celebrate for generations to come."
On the reason why the petition was started Dr Pepper says in full:
Created in Waco, TX in 1885, Dr Pepper is the oldest major soft drink in the United States, and while the brand has grown exponentially since its early years, it has never forgotten where it started. Like any Texan, Dr Pepper has only the deepest pride and appreciation for its home state. Now Dr Pepper is calling on its passionate fans to support its quest to become the first Official Soft Drink of the Lone Star State. Dr Pepper has a rich, storied history in the great state of Texas and being named its official soft drink would mark a new milestone for the beloved brand to celebrate for generations to come.
Dr Pepper says to celebrate its mission to become the Lone Star State's official soft drink it will debut a collection of special edition bottle labels inspired by the brand's heritage.
The special edition bottle labels will include 15 labels with artwork depicting some of the state's most iconic landmarks and landscapes.
The 20 oz bottles will be available for purchase in Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and Waco.
