At ten and two and four no more: Sugar-sweetened Dr Pepper will no longer be bottled in Dublin, Texas.

Imperial Sugar-sweetened Dr Pepper will no longer be bottled in Dublin, Texas.

The news was a shock to Dr Pepper fans in Austin and across the country, as conversations began bubbling up online regarding where to procure the suddenly scarce beverage.

As explained in a report by The Dallas Observer's Unfair Park blog, the shutdown stemmed from a legal dispute between Dr Pepper's parent company (who, as it happens, has their own cane syrup version of the soda) and the Dr Pepper Bottling Co. of Dublin, Texas (henceforth to be known as Dublin Bottling Works).
