TODD: There’s this scene [in Beethoven] where this little dog is running around with a huge cabbage in it’s mouth. Oh man, it’s classic! I shot my Dr Pepper right outta my nose!
Dr. Pepper is the brand name of a fizzy soft drink introduced in 1885, so it’s the oldest soft drink brand in the US at just one year older than Coke. It has a distinctive yet unclassifiable fruity, spicy flavour.
