Putting Dr Pepper on the Map

Over the past few months, local TV personality and blogger Mike McGuff has been steadfastly and patiently compiling a list of all the locations around the greater Houston area where one can procure his favorite -- and my favorite -- chilled beverage of choice, a Dr Pepper Icee.

Dr Pepper Icees manage to combine two distinctly Texan preferences -- the slightly spicy, slightly fruity Dr Pepper and the immense appreciation for beverages that will keep us cool in our oppressively hot summers (and, for that matter, most of the other three seasons) -- into one deliciously addictive beverage.  But finding a Dr Pepper Icee can be difficult.  Only a few locations around town offer them and unless your idea of a fun Saturday afternoon is hitting up every Quik-E-Mart on the east side in search of a fix, then you'll appreciate the latest development on the Dr Pepper Icee front.

Fellow blogger and Dr Pepper Icee devotee Matt Bramanti has done for the beverage what John Snow did for mitigating cholera outbreaks: he's placed the Icee locations on a handy map.

Sure, a list of locations is great.  But we're visual creatures, and a spatial representation of data is always so much easier to digest.  You can check out the map in its entirety (along with physical addresses for the Icee locations) here.

Armed with this information, you can now locate the elusive Dr Pepper Icee with much greater ease, which leads to the question: what are you waiting for?  Go try one today.  Even in this bitterly cold and wet weather, a Dr Pepper Icee will warm the soul.
