Blog: The secret to a long life? Three cans of Dr Pepper a day - video

James Wilmore | 24 March 2015

A few wry grins will have been raised in the offices of Dr Pepper Snapple Group today. 

After months, if not years, of bad press for the CSD segment over health concerns, the tables have been turned. For a day at least. 

Step forward 104 year-old Elizabeth Sullivan. Her secret to a long life? Three cans of Dr Pepper a day for "the last 50 or 60 years", apparently.

My favourite line from Elizabeth: "Two doctors told me that if I keep on drinking it (Dr Pepper), I'll die. But they died first!"  

I'm guessing her seemingly cheery disposition and active mind must have helped too. Still, it's a lovely story. 

Enjoy it below, as told to CNN's Gary Tuchman.
