Wikipedia: Dr Pepper
Dr Pepper is a carbonated soft drink. It was created in the 1880s by pharmacist Charles Alderton in Waco, Texas, and first served around 1885. Dr Pepper was first nationally marketed in the United States in 1904, and is now also sold in Europe, Asia, North and South America. In Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, Dr Pepper is sold as an imported good. Variants include Diet Dr Pepper and, beginning in the 2000s, a line of additional flavors.

MEDICAL FACT: Dr. Pepper developed 19 of his 23 flavors while he was still a lowly fizzician’s assistant in a dialysis clinic.

What kind of doctor is “Dr Pepper”?
No kind at all. The period was dropped on the 50s as part of a redesign. This forever changed the respectable “Dr. Pepper” into the dimwitted “Dhhhhurrrr (“Dr”) Pepper”.
That’s right. The answer is not ANOTHER repost of “a fizzician”.
