Mexican Coke at Costco--how widespread is it?

As a recent L.A. expatriate who took advantage of it when I could, I want to try to convince one of the two Costcos in the greater Boise, ID area to start selling it, and at some point I wanted to use the "If the Costco at (some city) is carrying it, then why can't Boise?" line. I was curious if any Costcos in Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, or Montana were selling it.

  1. I have never seen it at any Costcos in the Sacramento region.

    1. I thought it was only sold in Southern California- San Diego to LA.

        It's available at the Costcos San Jose and Santa Clara in northern California.

      2. Just bought another case today at the Puyallup,Washington Costco for $17.99. My 25 year old son is hooked on the stuff.

          Our grocery store in suburban KC sells it by the bottle, $1.69 ea.

        2. They had it in our Costco in Glendale, Arizona. It was $17.99 a case which I think comes out to $1.67 a bottle.

            what's a good price? that seems awful high to me for a bottle of soda.

              It is made with cane sugar, not high fructose corn syrup. This is the flavor we Boomers grew up with. Not supported by the corn lobby, so costs more.

                The three cases I have purchased in Washington and Arizona are .75 per bottle.

              2. re: Kari

                Doesn't a case have 24 bottles? That would make it 75 cents per bottle.

              3. The Costco in Stockton, CA had Mexican Coke a couple of months ago...I dunno if they still have it or not.
