Hot Dr Pepper for the holidays?

    How in the world did the HOT Dr. Pepper fad get started? It all began in September of 1958, when Wesby R. Parker, President of Dr. Pepper Company, had an idea to create a warm and comforting version of Dr. Pepper. While visiting a bottling plant during a blizzard, one of the route salesmen joked that they needed a hot drink to sell during winter weather.
