Whataburger has (somewhat quietly) announced a new Dr. Pepper shake.

Wasn't it inevitable that this would happen? I mean, Whataburger is the finest cuisine you can get in a bag, and Dr. Pepper is the unofficial (as of now) national soft drink of Texas.

So far the only reported marketing for the new dessert has been a handful of billboards in South Texas and the beloved burger chain responding to questions and comments on social media.

And that's been enough.

No word on if the shake will be available at all locations, but with Dr. Pepper having been created right up the highway in Waco I say they are obligated to sell them in our area.

One Twitter response from Whataburger read that "it's a match made in Heaven". Isn't a match made in Texas close enough?
