In , this quota was set at , tons; in comparison, the EU produced an average of However, the bottlers of Dr Pepper in Germany and the United Kingdom use instead a combination of sugar and artificial sweeteners. In the United States, Keurig Dr Pepper does not have a complete network of bottlers and distributors, so the drink is sometimes bottled under contract by Coca-Cola or Pepsi bottlers.
Presently, Dr Pepper Snapple relies on its own bottling group to bottle and distribute its products in more than 30 states. Coca-Cola and Pepsi have essentially stopped bottling and distributing Cadbury-Schweppes products in favor of in-house alternatives, although regional exceptions can be found. In Portugal, Spain, France, Turkey, and Greece, it is almost impossible to find, as it is usually imported from the United Kingdom in particular supermarkets.
In almost all of the other countries of the world, the Coca-Cola Company purchased the trademark from Cadbury-Schweppes and distributes the product. This mixed worldwide ownership of the trademark is due to antitrust regulations which prevented Coca-Cola from purchasing the rights everywhere. Dr Pepper is also available in Russia though imported, generally from Poland — there's no local bottling despite numerous talks , South Korea and Ukraine.
Although no longer locally bottled in Australia or New Zealand , Dr Pepper is imported and sold by United States Foods, and many other small retailers in Australia, with the UK sugar version sold in the British sections of Coles and Woolworths supermarkets.

In , Jake Holmes wrote the lyrics to "Be a Pepper". A TV commercial was also created using the jingle and ran from to It's not a root beer, you get root beer by the score.
The chorus of the jingle as written by Holmes was:. Be a Pepper. Drink Dr Pepper. This became grist for a number of pop culture references and parodies. Levy and a group of patients wearing casts and crutches engage in their own elaborate dancing and singing "Wouldn't you like to see my doctor, too?
In the sex farce The Beach Girls , the slogan became "I'm a popper, he's a popper After appearing in a series of commercials, David Naughton had his breakthrough film role as the main character in the John Landis film An American Werewolf in London. It's not an apple, it's not an orange, it's not a strawberry, it's not a root beer , it's not even a cola. It's a different kind of drink with a unique taste all its own.
Dr Pepper has also been featured outside the "I'm a Pepper" motif. An example is in the video game Pikmin 2 , where one of the collectible treasures is a Dr Pepper bottle cap it is labeled as the "Drought Ender".
Several of the classic non-"I'm a Pepper" commercials featured prominent movie stars, one being a television advertisement with Chris Rock as a child enjoying a Dr Pepper. The s "Out of the Ordinary" advertising campaign involved a series of postapocalyptic commercials featuring a space cowboy and an alien sidekick seeking "something different" from a simple generic cola. The commercials were prominently featured during the syndication of The Canned Film Festival , which was sponsored by the Dr Pepper Company.
The campaign also featured individual musicians, notably Garth Brooks. Dr Pepper made several appearances in the Robert Zemeckis major motion picture Forrest Gump , as it was the beverage of choice for the movie's namesake lead character, played by Tom Hanks. In one of the film's Dr Pepper scenes, Forrest's narrative suggests, "The best part about goin' to the White House was, they had all the food and drink that you wanted I must have had me 15 Dr Peppers.

The use of the Statue of Liberty moving to Australia and passing cans of Dr Pepper on to two Australian males made its imported i. Letterman repeatedly made assurances on the show that he was joking.
These ads were produced by They Might Be Giants. In a ad, a student in a college lecture takes a sip of Dr Pepper. When he stops drinking, the Dr Pepper can sings variations of "Flava Licious" Flavor Flav , and other people in the room start dancing. In , Dr Pepper in the UK restarted launching its old adverts and slogan, "What's the worst that can happen? A commercial for this included Jesse Eisenberg being forced to be on live TV without his clothes on.
As of , the slogan of the product was "Drink it slow. Doctor's orders". Advertising supporting the slogan has celebrities with famous relations to the word "doctor" Dr. Dre , Julius "Dr. Love " , et al. The ads culminate with the celebrity stating, "Trust me.

The introduction of Dr Pepper Ten in featured a marketing campaign targeting men, citing market research suggesting that most diet soft drinks had been perceived as appealing primarily to women.
