Is Dr. Pepper, a soft-drink with particular popularity in Texas, kosher? What about the vintage version that is sweetened with sugar as opposed to artificial sweeteners? There is no hechsher on the box or can, but that might be a thing subject to locality as I live in a place with a very low Jewish population, let alone a Rabbinical authority.

2Well did you for example google "is doctor pepper kosher". That would be a good first step. If you have, you could mention this in the question so others don't duplicate your effort. If you haven't, consider doing so.– mevaqeshFeb 3, 2017 at 22:48
According to the CRC the following flavours are kosher:
Berries and Cream
The Heritage listed (which uses real sugar) is the same as the "vintage" which you mentioned.
Thank you. The Heritage variety is the same, as I have seen these in grocery stores, convenience stores, etc.– ezraFeb 3, 2017 at 22:56
You are very welcome. (BTW I didn't find any references referring to it as "vintage" are you sure it isn't just called 'heritage'?)– mevaqeshFeb 3, 2017 at 22:58
I didn't know exactly what is was called so I just said "vintage," as the soda mimics the way Dr. Pepper used to be made when it first came out in 1885.– ezraFeb 3, 2017 at 22:59
There was a period of about 2-3 years when Doctor Peppper was considered dairy. One of the ingredients was lactic acid. I don't think that their are using this any longer, but, since you mentioned "vintage" you should check for that ingredient.– DanFFeb 4, 2017 at 23:56
