Dublin is a city located in Erath County, Texas. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 3,754.
The town is the home of the world's oldest Dr Pepper bottling plant. The plant, still in operation, is the only US source for Dr Pepper made with real cane sugar (from Texas-based Imperial Sugar), instead of less expensive corn syrup. Contractual requirements limit the plant's distribution range to a 40-mile radius of Dublin, an area encompassing Stephenville, Tolar, Comanche and Hico.
