(Gray News) – Many Dr. Pepper fans have struggled to find the popular soda in grocery stores across the country, and the company says it is working on a solution.
The company said that all the flavors of Dr. Pepper are affected by the shortage, and it is collaborating with its distribution partners on warehouse shelves.
“We appreciate your patience and encourage you to contact your local dealer directly for the latest update of Dr. Pepper products,” the company said in a tweet.
While Dr. Pepper did not give any details as to why the shortage is ongoing, it is not the only beverage company that has problems.
Coca-Cola has responded to many of its customers on Twitter and addressed shortcomings with some of its brands.
“Due to extreme demand for certain products, we are temporarily focusing on producing more of these beverages,” Coca-Cola tweeted to a person asking for more Cherry Vanilla Coke Zero.
Some cite an increased demand for aluminum cans as a primary reason for the shortage, and it also affects breweries.
“If Pepsi and Coca-Cola see problems, then these are small breweries, there are so many of us, and it will eventually make up and affect us,” Taylor Lander of Birmingham, Alabama-based Avondale Brewing told Gray Television WBRC branches.
Avondale Brewing has seen a marked increase in sales of canned beer during the coronavirus pandemic, while sales of draft beer have fallen.
