The doctor with 23 flavors was brought into the lives of Texans back in the year of 1885. One pharmacist, by the name Charles Alderton, made the drink while supplying thirsty patrons at Morrison’s Old Corner Drug Store, his place of work. With the assortment of scents in the store, he made it a point to make something that tasted as good as the store smelt.

52 years later, Big Red entered the soda ring in 1937. While not created in a pharmacy, Big Red instead was made reality in a laboratory. Thanks to the efforts of Grover C. Thomsen and R.H. Roark, the soda was brought into our lives.

Both sodas didn't start out with the names we know today. Dr. Pepper's naming history is a little bit cloudy, and Big Red being called Sun Tang Red Cream Soda until one suggestion changed the whole identity.
