Dr Pepper Confirms Soda Shortage Amid COVID-19 Pandemic

August 12, 2020

    AUSTIN (Talk1370.com) -- Toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and coins have all seen shortages during a pandemic-filled 2020. The latest casualty? Dr Pepper.

    The Plano-based soft drink company noted the shortage of its products on store shelves in a tweet Monday afternoon. "We know it's hard to find Dr Pepper these days. We're working on it - hang tight!"

    The shortage is apparently impacting all flavors of the soft drink - including its diet brands.

    "We appreciate your patience and encourage you to contact your local retailer directly for the most up-to-date availability of Dr Pepper products," the company said in its tweet.

    The company didn't give any insight as to what's causing the shortage.
