Why do they call it "Dr Pepper"?
Dr. Pepper created it?
From the Dr. Pepper website FAQ..."A pharmacist named Charles Alderton created Dr Pepper in 1885. Alderton worked at a drugstore in Waco, Texas owned by Wade Morrison. Legend has it that Morrison named it "Dr. Pepper" after the father of a young girl he was once in love with." http://www.drpepper.com/text/faq/#a
