Tom and I went out of town this week for a short over night. We have friends who are neighbors of ours (in the summer ) in Colorado, that spend their winters in Waco,Texas. Waco is only a little over an hour south of Ft. Worth. Tom and David played golf, while Kay and I shopped a bit ,visited antique shops and art galleries, and had lunch at a little tea room.
I spotted this at one of the antique shops. It is an old canned beverage vending machine. The beverage was actually  invented in Waco in the late 1800's....and no it is not Cocoa Cola.
Maybe this will give you a clue.... see it dispensed Dr. Pepper. I have never been a big fan. I always thought it tasted a little too sweet. Although, I do think the Diet version is great. There are die hard Dr. Pepper drinkers though.....and to them, a Coke just won't do!

Have you ever had a Dr. Pepper?


  1. i have. the closest thing we had to it up north where i grew up was Mr. Pibb. but i'm not much of a soda drinker. maybe a couple in a year - and diet coke would be my first choice.

  2. Hi Janey, No soda for me, but I think Dr Pepper has the most caffeine of any soda.

  3. Dr. Pepper. . . no thanks, but I am a hard-core coke drinker on occasion.

  4. I have no idea what a Dr, Pepper is, sounds like a medication! :)

  5. Hello Janey,

    Well, we know that we are going to sound like aliens from another planet but we have never drunk either Dr Pepper or Coca Cola in our lives.

    However, the vintage vending machine is fabulous. It might even tempt us to have a drink!

  6. Nope never tried it Janey.. Not much of a cola drinker but if I do its usually Coke Zero! I do like the mural on the Dr Pepper machine though :)
