Dr Pepper shortage? Company confirms soda ‘harder to find’

  • Updated
Dr Pepper

Bottles of Dr Pepper sit on a shelf in a market in Pittsburgh.

Dr Pepper took to Twitter to let its fans know the company is aware the soda is sometimes hard to find.

“We know it’s harder to find Dr Pepper these days. We’re working on it — hang tight! Note: This applies to all flavors of Dr Pepper — including our newest permanent addition to the family, Dr Pepper & Cream Soda.”

Soda and beer manufacturers have been experiencing a lack of cans because of the national aluminum can shortage, which experts say was caused by an increase in drinking at home instead of in restaurants and bars because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Dr Pepper received a response from another industry that has faced a shortage.

Toilet paper company Charmin said: “Welcome to the club. We feel your pain.” To which Dr Pepper responded, “TP and DP — in this together.”
