The company that owns the rights to Dr. Pepper is the Keurig Corporation. They also produce all Dr. Pepper in the US. They allow Coke to produce Dr. Pepper in Europe, but the parent company is still Keurig.

oh... I know very well what the French Riviera is... but I was trying to type in translations for the French. You can't accept the blue coast?

Jul 31, 2017
Agree. I tried so many forms of "blue coast" "coast of blue" "azure coast" "coast of azure", etc. Also, not sure why "maggot" doesn't work (for the fly question, obviously).

I've never heard it called the Blue Coast before (or Azur Coast) - no one would know to what you refer if you called it that.

Think the Dr Pepper one will start some arguments in a pub quiz... Snapple only make it in the U.S, Coca Cola make it and distribute it in Europe, and Pepsi make it in Canada and Asia...in some areas, Coke and Pepsi have bought the trade-mark, in other areas they lease it from Cadbury-Schweppes, so unsure who would actually own the product itself...if you own the trademark, do you own the product? ... I don't know... Instead, I'd ask about which soft drinks company has a museum in Downtown Waco, Texas....
