#PickYourPepper for a Fun Summer!

June 20, 2017

An ode to my favorite soda brand–and a chance to win some fun stuff for summer!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dr Pepper. The opinions and text are all mine.

Who else can testify the weather going from blizzard to blistering overnight this year? All I want to do this summer is celebrate the warmth by connecting with friends with a refreshing drink in my hand. I try to limit my soda intake to once a week, but most of the time, that freebie is during hangouts or on the weekends.

Planning a get-together is hard. What does everyone like? Should you cater to each individual or pick a few things the majority would enjoy? I love Dr Pepper because it is an attestation to being unique, inviting, complex and simple at the same time. How can you not love it when it has 23 unique flavors rolled into one sweet melodious taste?! There’s literally a flavor in there for everyone.

Anyone who knows me knows that the soda I crave is the one and only Dr Pepper. My eyes always light up when I find out a restaurant has this option! And this is why I have no hesitation in making Dr Pepper my choice of beverage to kick off Summer ’17.


I recently went over to Walmart a few weeks ago and grabbed a pack of Dr Pepper for a beach day. The individual bottles are perfect for storing in an ice chest and of course, keeping away all the sand that inevitably flies into every crevice after a day at the beach.

If you’re planning a party or even a hangout with a few of your best friends, Dr Pepper floats are a fun way to enjoy soda with a splash! Pro tip (may or may not be from experience…haha!)—make sure you buy your ice cream at the last stop and store it in an ice cooler with dry ice + ice cubes to keep it from turning into a milk shake. But hey, even if it does…it all goes down the same way, right?! (Psssst, you can also have a chance to win a cooler at #Walmart! Keep reading below to find out how you, too, can score prizes ranging from that to this inflatable below!)

I got this cute little Dr Pepper unicorn bottle holder. It is perfect for 1) keeping your bottle out of the water or sand, of course, 2) completing a fun summer-themed hangout as a decoration and 3) individualizing your Dr Pepper bottle instead of having to put your name on it!

Join in on the fun! If you head over to your local Walmart, upload your receipt to this link: http://bit.ly/2pts8Qo after buying Dr Pepper for you and your friends to share. You’ll have a chance to get this cute unicorn bottle holder or some of the other prizes below!

Keep your eye out for the new #PickYourPepper packaging hitting shelves 6/15. Thousands of Dr Pepper creatives, like you and me, designed their own labels last year for limited time packaging. These unique labels are all so fun and customized! I bet there’s a label for every personality.

What do you think about the new #PickYourPepper labels? I’m excited to have yet another fun-filled summer! Share this with your friends, and you can have a better chance at collecting all the prizes! Good luck! xx
