I voted for HEB. I think HEB is probably visited by more Texans than any of the other choices. And just about every town that has an HEB, it is the busiest grocery store in town. And HEB is a store to be proud of. It was voted best grocery store chain in the entire nation.

If we go by the numbers, do you think more Texans drink or have tried Dr Pepper compared to the number of Texans who visit HEB?

If there's another Texas brand you're proud of on the list, comment. For example, I think Whataburger is overrated (bash me all you want) and I prefer Fuddruckers who is from Texas and headquartered in Texas. Fudds isn't as convenient with the everywhere drive thru but the burgers are a lot better.Some people say the same about Whole Foods vs H-E-B. But no doubt Texas pride sticks to Whataburger and H-E-B over the others. I also take pride in Bravado Spice being from here, but being relatively new, lots of people don't even know they're from Texas.

I predict Whataburger, But Ees and Dr. Pepper to be top 3, with H-E-B coming at a close fourth.
By the way, there is no period after Dr in Dr Pepper. It's a Texas thing.

I see Dr Pepper as a dying brand much like Big Red and other sodas, much less popular than they were 20 years ago.

That's a good question. I suppose it's all according to how a person looks at it. There's approximately 30 million people living in Texas. Assuming all 30 million Texans has tried Dr. Pepper at least once in his or her life. Theres probably about that many Texans that have entered an HEB at least once in his or her life. There's also alot of Texans who drink Dr. Pepper on a regular basis, but I don't believe they would out number the number Texans who visit HEB on a regular basis.

Outside of Texas, I don't believe most Americans connect Dr. Pepper with Texas the way many, if not most Americans connect Coca-Cola with Atlanta. Outside of Texas, most people are not aware that Dr. Pepper was invented in Texas. Dr. Pepper is not associated with Texas

Although I don't think Luby's and its cafeteria concept will survive COVID-19 .


Ya, I love Luby's.I just hope it can survive the coronavirus.

I agree with you. Problem is it doesn't seem like most of Texas agrees with us. I never liked DP.

I vote HEB and Shiner.
HEB was a place I didn't think I'd miss when moving further north in TX and Shiner is actually really decent beer.

Luby’s didn’t make it, liquidation of all assets.

Here’s a big one: Exxon.
