Honestly, this wouldn't be the first time we were all fooled by a fake collaboration with Whataburger. However, after some research, it looks like this is a very real thing! According to , after a quick phone call to Whataburger headquarters in Corpus Christi, the Dr Pepper milkshake is a go!

Unfortunately, there is one downside to this story. The shake isn't permanent. It's only for a limited time.
