Alright the old cereal thread made me think about snacks I can't get anymore.

Mr. Pibb.... not Pibb Xtra.. Although I guess that would do...

You can't get either of those in Vegas in a can or bottle.. Xtra at some fast food places, fountain drink only.... pisses me off.. I did a google...but I can't find a place to order main stream soda and have it delivered.

You guys know of some place?

Amazon just launched a grocery department, but they don't carry any sodas yet. Bevmo.com would be a good bet, but they don't seem to carry Mr. Pibb... check froogle.google.com maybe?

I'll check it out thanks... I can't believe in the billion years of the internet you still can't order soda...

Not to single out soda, but I was under the impression anything and everything was up for grabs. :)

There's an awesome store here in LA that stocks nothing but soda and they sell most everything (or will sell it if asked).

Sadly I forgot the name and if they have a wbesite...

I found a few places that will let you order Soda I've never heard of... but not mainstream stuff yet... kinda odd, surely since certain flavors are not availible everywhere there is a market for this? People move, you hear me Coca Cola!?!

Having been in E-Mail contact with the director of the grocery section, I can tell you it's going to be a while until they add soda, simply because the shipping costs are far too great across multiple UPS Zones.

I suggested they therefore don't stock sodas you can get on sale for cheap at Target, but instead more specialty sodas, such as Dublin Dr. Pepper, GUS (Grown Up Soda), etc. and it's been taken under consideration, though again, the shipping costs at the moment are too high.

Good lord, goodcow.

Honestly, have they hired you yet? You should really apply for some kind of marketing position there.

Well Safeway online carries Pibb Xtra, but doesn't ship to Nevada, and Albertsons online ships to Nevada but doesn't carry Mr. Pibb or Pibb Xtra, so I didn't help you at all.

I don't think soda has a shelf-life of more than a year or so -- so if you want stuff that's been out of production, it probably won't taste that good.

eBay is nice for vintage sodas, though.

What is Pibb Xtra? From the name, it sounds like Mr. Pibb + caffeine.

Sweeter, and more of everything... design to take on Mt Dew I think... ruined it for the most part... I would rather have that than nothing I guess. Dr. Pepper is my second choice... I'll always have that.

Mr. Pibb is awesome. Pibb Xtra is crap, it tastes like watered down Dr. Pepper. I haven't been able to find Mr. Pibb in years, so sad :(

Oh, I wouldn't have figured. Maybe you can make your own moonshine Mr. Pibb in your basement.

I'm still a little bent about this one..

I was reading root beer reviews at one site and the reviews for Hank's Root Beer and Cream Soda were gleaming so I wanted to try it! Where I live it's very rare to find actually good cream sodas and root beers.. I went to Hank's root beer website and to my astonishment, they sell online!!

http://www.hanksbeverages.com/store/

Check it out, you can buy 12 packs of single flavours, a pack that has 2 of each flavour, friggen dream come true for me!!

I was so looking forward to trying beverages such as: Hank's Premium Root Beer, Hank's Premium Vanilla Cream (!), Hank's Premium Island Fruit Punch, Hank's Premium Citrus Soda, Hank's Premium Highland Berry, etc..

So I was making the order, and !!!! to my anguish, I find out that they don't ship to Canada! ARRRRRGH!!!!!!!!! I was soooooooooo pissed, and saddened.. :(

The best pop I can buy here is Stewart's Root Beer, and Stewart's Key Lime Soda which is pretty good but omfg I want to try vanilla cream soda, and some high quality root beer!

:(

Holy shit. it's actually the most expensive soda on that website! I had no idea there was enough demand to justify that price.... why exactly did they do away with Mr. Pibb?

Anyway, that's not exactly what I am looking for. I don't want to buy old soda. I was hoping for a major commerical website that sells fresh soda and shipped it like they do with almost everything else you can buy..

Thanks guys.
