If you, like me, are in love with Dr. Pepper (specifically Diet Dr. Pepper), you may have noticed it's been a bit tricky to find some of your favorite flavors in stores lately. Dr. Pepper confirmed this week that there has been a shortage of their products in stores but that they are working on getting things stocked back up.

Dr. Pepper posted this info in a tweet, saying that "We know it’s harder to find Dr Pepper these days. We’re working on it–hang tight!" In a graphic attached to that tweet, they wrote the following in part: "Having trouble finding your favorite Dr. Pepper product? We're doing everything we can to get it back into your hands. That means working with out distribution partners to keep shelves stocked nationwide, while ensuring the safety of our employees."

They also said that this message "applies to all flavors of Dr Pepper–including our newest permanent addition to the family, Dr Pepper & Cream Soda" in a note on the tweet.

Fans followed up with their tales of not being able to find their favorite drinks in stores, which made me feel good for not being the only one to have my heart broken (the photo above was taken a week or so ago after my boyfriend finally found a very low stock of Diet Dr. Pepper after some unsuccessful trips in the weeks prior, though as you can see regular Dr. Pepper was THRIVING).

Some fans also thanked the company for being upfront about the supply issue and Charmin even popped in to commiserate after the toilet paper company faced its own supply issues amid the COVID-19 outbreak.

So there you have it. A great reminder not to hoard and to enjoy your beloved diet soda while you still can!!
