Supposedly they have both been released nationwide, but I haven’t been able to find any in my area, which is currently Gaithersburg, MD, just North of washington DC? Any Dopers from the DC area know where I could get my hands on some.
Also, I’m going to be going back up to Maine this week so are there any Dopers in Maine who know where I could get some. In Maine, I’m living in Bath.
Oh yeah, I’m not looking to buy cases of the stuff, just a six-pack or so to see if I can actually stomach the stuff.
I’m not in your area, but Kroger’s and a few party stores around the Detroit area had Vanilla Coke last week. It was only available as a single 20oz (as in, you can’t buy a six-pack, you could only buy one bottle). Call some of your supermarkets and ask if they have it, or if they don’t have it if they could get it in soon.
It looks the same as regular coke but with a cream colored swirl around the front. You can see the new bottle and get info here. The site also has release dates for each area of the counrty. New yorks release is between May 25th and june 7th. Thus the reason you are unable to find it.
pezpunk, I’m not quite sure that those are the release dates listed (I’m looking in the ‘find your vanilla coke’ section). If so, then Detroit wouldn’t have any Vanilla Coke until this Friday, and it’s been around at least a week, maybe longer (I should know, I’ve had several of them).
It says to check for a Vanilla Coke ‘event’ near you. Maybe some heavy-duty promotions are around those dates? But you can’t even click on the city for information about the events (because who needs to know where, exactly, these events are being held? ).
