"There is no truth to this rumor. The Dr Pepper soft drink brand is owned by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group; neither the drink nor its parent company has been acquired by Coca-Cola (or any other entity), nor has Dr Pepper Snapple Group announced plans to discontinue production or sales of their flagship product."
"It is true that because Dr Pepper lacks the bottling infrastructure of other beverage giants,
Coca-Cola owns bottlers in North America who produce and distribute both Coca-Cola and Dr Pepper products, but those two brands are, and always have been, owned by different companies."https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/dr-pepper-discontinued/
