Did you know...
... that today is the birthday of Dr. Pepper? Charles Alderton, American inventor of the Dr. Pepper soft drink, was born in 1857 in Brooklyn, New York. While working as a soda clerk in 1885 at the Old Corner Drug Store in Waco, Texas, Charles concocted the soda fountain syrup that later became known as Dr. Pepper. Trivia fans: His customers originally asked for the drink by asking Alderton to shoot them a "Waco."
