As recently as 2014, a fan reported buying a genuine bottle of Dublin Dr Pepper at Pops 66, a soda shop in Oklahoma.
Could it be possible that four years after Dublin stopped making Dr Pepper, bottles of this coveted drink are out there?
Pops is a “soda ranch” in Arcadia, just off Route 66, that boasts a collection of 700 different types of soda, and in 2014 a Redditor reported that Pops still had the “real discontinued Dublin Dr Pepper.” There was even a photo.
Arcadia is about 300 miles north of Dublin, which in Texas terms, is relatively close, so it made sense that the shop might have bought up enough of the soda to last awhile.
He drank a few bottles every day and was known to go out with a set of cold drinks and hand them out to anyone who wanted one.
In January 2012, the last ever bottles of Dublin Dr Pepper came off the line.
One member of a documentary film crew in Dublin that day bought 10 to 12 cases of the last run.
