Since moving to Texas 12 years ago I have naturally learned many things about it that I never knew before. Now that I have read that article I know eight more “things” and, further, am shocked by the obvious omissions.
BBQ beef brisket is not an “Official Texas Food”!
Nor are Frito Pie, Dublin Dr. Pepper, Kolache, or Chicken Fried Steak!
Clearly, we have some room to grow. [;)]
Dublin Dr Pepper is owned by Snapple. There was plenty outrage over the deal.
Actually, Dublin Bottle Works is independent of Snapple. What Snapple owned was the Dr Pepper trademark and formula. After they split up and went their separate ways Dublin Bottle Works put out a knock off version of the original Dr Pepper and Snapple forced them to take it off the market. Fortunately they are still in business and doing a good bit of new business with a new line of sodas. I wish they had been able to keep making the original and the knockoff, but they went out of their way to poke the Snapple bear and got called on it.
