MIAMI, FL - JANUARY 29: Bottles of Dr Pepper drinks are seen on a store shelf on the day Keurig Green Mountain announced it has struck a deal worth more than $21 billion with Dr Pepper Snapple Group Inc. on January 29, 2018 in Miami, Florida.

Dr. Pepper has been around since 1885 – and many would say it’s as popular today as it ever was. But as Cameron previously reported, Dr. Pepper is also the last victim in 2020 ‘panic buying.’ While the suggestion might be that people are emptying stores because people just can’t get enough of that delicious fizz, CNN believes that an aluminum can shortage is a more likely culprit.

For their part, Keurig Dr. Pepper blames the shortage of growth and rising demand and popularity and encourages customers to “contact your local retailer directly for the most up-to-date availability of Dr. Pepper products.” Better grab some while you can if you can find it!

Diet Dr. Pepper is my personal favorite, so please don’t purchase that.
