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.
