    The story goes something like this. As most of you know, a pharmacist by the name of Charles Alderton created the delicious soft drink back in 1885. The pharmacy/drugstore Alderton worked at was owned by Wade Morrison. Apparently, Morrison named the drink after the father of a former girlfriend of his. That’s how the story goes. Dr. Pepper is the oldest major soft drink company in America.
