Whataburger & Dr Pepper Pair Up for the Most Texan Shake Ever

By  | 

This is not a drill. Grab the kids, load up, and get to your nearest Whataburger now for the most Texan thing ever—the Whataburger Dr Pepper Shake. The popular soft drink company is calling it “a match made in Heaven.”

The two Lone Star State favorites have reportedly come together for this delicious shake that will tempt the “Texas” out of you as you sip and savor the cool treat from your local Whataburger franchise. Media reports state, however, that this is something which is only being made available for a limited time.

KHOU 11 shared the news of the Whataburger Dr Pepper Shake on their YouTube channel, which has garnered a bit of attention. Although it’s not a surprising combination, the pairing of this popular fast-food chain with Dr Pepper will leave some scratching their heads as to why it was never thought of sooner. In January 2019, Dr Pepper actually began a petition to make theirs the official soft drink of Texas, the link for which can be found here. So far, more than 30K have signed it, expressing their interest in making that happen. Dr Pepper was created in Waco in 1885 and has had a “rich, storied history in the great state of Texas,” making it quite the heavy-hitter in homes, mom-and-pop stores, and large supermarkets throughout the Lone Star State and beyond. It was first served in a drugstore in Waco, as a brain tonic, as a matter of fact.

Since that time, 134 years and a whole lot of growth has happened for this delicious Texas drink, including an entire museum dedicated to all things related to its creation, marketing, and Lone Star love. The fact that Whataburger has now partnered with the “pop” powerhouse is simply a testament to its true Texas staying power. Its ability to provoke some serious nostalgia and become part of the childhoods of future Texans is a legacy it has managed well for more than a century now. Whataburger may be a considerably beloved Texas chain, but it’s by far the junior in this partnership that’s produced an amazing shake we’re lining up for as we speak!
