Summertime barbecues, outdoor events and party events are in full swing. The warm sun brings us to a back to a season of nostalgia and joy and Dr Pepper is a refreshing symbol to the memories and epitome of a summertime gathering of music, food, and friends.
I had the chance to host a few friends over at my place and utilize our outdoor barbecue a bit. I made some great tasting Japanese barbecue style wings, grilled chicken, had lots of great tea and Dr Pepper, and I also included some great tasting sides, like fries with Japanese mayo and ketchup. After the afternoon turned into night we headed back inside where we played this great game. You may have heard of the game “Cards Against Humanity,” but there is this digital game called Quiplash, that can be played from your smartphone as a controller and any gaming system or even from a PC I believe. It’s basically a Cards Against Humanity type game where you can actually write down whatever you want for an answer instead having a set selection of answers you choose from, it makes adlibbing answers a lot more fun and you can put a lot of your own personal humor and style into it.
Whatever your background or taste, marinating meat and having great sides and refreshments is something universal. Walmart is a great place to get Dr Pepper because it’s practically everywhere you are. Specifically for this summer, Dr Pepper is kicking it up another notch. They are offering a plethora of prize opportunities and prize rewards from 6/15-8/15 where you can purchase Dr Pepper and upload your receipt to the ‘Pick you Pepper’ site and find a variety of prize options. To get the speaker prize shown in featured photos below, head to the site. Here are some of the additional tiers and options you can choose from. All the prizes are great for summertime parties.
- Spend $5 get 5 bottles = Dr Pepper Retro Specs
- Spend $10 get 10 bottles = Dr Pepper Copper Lined Mug

I highly recommend you to go and get out there and do! Work hard, play hard, and find time to throw a get together and have some fun, summer-time only comes around once a year!
In my college years, I really enjoyed the summer barbecues at the beach in Orange County, going to so many of the great beaches in the community, like Newport Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Laguna etc. I had so many good memories of playing games on the beach, getting a nice sun-kissed tan, being care-free, and enjoying food with friends. Such a great summer-time tradition to continue on into this summer.
And by the way, Dr Pepper doesn’t stop there, they have the Pick your Pepper new style cans which pull from the history and heritage of Dr Pepper and they’ve created a bunch of different retro style cans and bottle designs in so many fun designs.
I had the pleasure of participating in a fun campaign last year with Dr Pepper, and wanted to be a part of what they had going on this summer. Last year Dr Pepper hooked me up with a float that I had some fun using last year and think I will bring it out again in the upcoming hot months. It encourages going outside, being with others, enjoying your free time and making great memories. These are all important things that I feel proud to support and be a part of.
