Dr. Pepper Surprises College Student With Dr. Pepper Fountain
I feel like there are a lot of Texans who could give this Kansas college student a run for her money on Dr. Pepper consumption.
I know there are many Dr. Pepper fans in the Lone Star state, which makes sense considering the beverage was created in Texas all the way back in the 1880s. But one Kansas State University student tweeted the beverage company telling them she drank so much Dr. Pepper she should have a Dr. Pepper fountain installed.
I really just need to have a Dr Pepper fountain installed in my house. That would probably be cheaper than how much I spend on it currently😂

The Dr. Pepper associate brand manager Lynsey Loomer told Kansas State Collegian,
“We were really inspired by her love of the brand and wanted to have a fun twist on what exactly that means for her.”
Instead of giving a tradition restaurant soda fountain, or even a water fountain that served Dr. Pepper, the company decided to create for her a one-of-a-kind yard fountain in the tradition maroon Dr. Pepper label color, with Dr. Pepper Bottles and a caramel colored water flowing through it. To make up for the fact that they don’t think she should actually be drinking anything from the fountain, they gave the student 1,200 cans of soda to celebrate.
