Celebrate Summer With Dr Pepper: A Great Way To Stay Cool

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Dr Pepper®. The opinions and text are all mine.
For over 130 years, Dr Pepper has been a staple in American culture. With its rich, delicious taste and 23 unique flavors, there’s something irresistible about Dr Pepper. When the craving calls, answer it with an ice-cold Dr Pepper or explore the flavors by creating a delicious recipe using Dr Pepper. Some of my favorites include mixed drinks or flavorful dishes such as Dr Pepper Hamburgers or Meatballs, Dr Pepper Ribs and Baked Beans, or even a variety of desserts made with Dr Pepper (Dr Pepper Cupcakes and Dr Pepper Cake-YUM!!). Recently Dr Pepper underwent a packaging upgrade so the fun, unique ‘Pick Your Pepper’ packaging was designed by millennials for millennials and is available in stores starting 6/15/18.
When I was growing up, Dr Pepper was the go to soft drink for teens and young adults. Nowadays I may not drink as many soft drinks as I used to since I’ve started this new low carb lifestyle; but it doesn’t mean that I don’t love delicious drinks that remind me of my youth. I love thinking back to my high school days: sitting in the hallway at lunch, eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a bag of chips with a can of Dr Pepper.

Summer is here!! I love the feeling of nostalgia with the warm weather and friendly get-togethers. Planning a backyard barbeque or pool party? Celebrate summertime with your friends and ‘Pick your Pepper’ with Dr Pepper at Walmart. It’s the perfect choice and is sure to be a huge hit with your guests. One of my favorite ways to stay cool this summer is by combining Dr Pepper with two scoops of vanilla ice cream to make the perfect Dr Pepper float. I made a Dr Pepper float with whipped cream and sprinkles and my family loved it. It’s the perfect cool treat!! Some of my other favorite things about summer are: the smell of fresh cut grass, food cooking on the grill and family and friends enjoying some lawn games.

Since school is out for the summer, I’m spending about $1500 a month for childcare. My daughter is doing a gymnastics summer camp and my two youngest are in daycare. This has me on a pretty tight budget, so I always shop at Walmart to save on the supplies I need for my summer gatherings. I was able to pick up Dr Pepper on my trip to Walmart along with the things I need to throw a backyard barbeque, it’s always great to be able to shop for all the things I need in one place. That’s what I love about shopping at Walmart.

This summer, when you buy Dr Pepper between 6/15-8/15, you can upload your receipt at Dr Pepper at Walmart to get the prizes below:
Spend $5 get 5 bottles = Dr Pepper Retro Specs
