One thing the coronavirus pandemic has taught us it not to take things for granted as there has been shortages on basic household items. We've seen grocery store shelves were completely empty, the shortage on toilet paper, of course disinfectant products, and now the latest shortage is Dr. Pepper! If you've had a harder time trying to find your favorite soda, the company acknowledged it by saying they're working to stock shelves while keeping their employees safe during the pandemic. The shortage is due to customers who stocked up at the beginning of the pandemic and then of course the transition from drinking it in restaurants on taps to drinking it at home from cans and bottles. Dr. Pepper released a statement saying "We appreciate your patience and encourage you to contact your local retailer directly for the most up-to-date availability of Dr Pepper products." This shortage applies to all flavors of Dr. Pepper including the newest flavor Dr Pepper and Cream Soda.
