For those people unfamiliar, Dr Pepper was created in Waco, Texas. The soft drink dates back to 1885 and is considered the oldest major soft drink in the United States. While some people might visit the Silos in Waco, others make a pilgrimage to the birthplace of this beloved soft drink.

While this Change.org petition does have a little levity, the brand is channeling its Texas pride with a launch of 15 unique artwork bottles. From the Texas landscape to iconic landmarks, this artwork is meant to evoke Texas pride. Anyone who has lived in Texas knows that Texans are proud of their state.

For some big fans, they will want to collect all 15 unique artwork bottles. While the 20oz bottles are available in some areas, fans might have to be determined to find them all. Looking at the designs, some labels will surely become extremely popular.

Being named the Official Soft Drink of Texas doesn’t necessarily come with a lot of pomp and circumstance. It doesn’t seem likely that this drink will be the only beverage served at state dinners, for example. Still, it is a nice distinction for a brand that is very proud of its Texas roots.
