ISO Stewart's Diet Sodas

David Kahn Oct 21, 2007 01:08 PM

For some reason, Galco's has been out of diet Stewarts for months. Is there any other place in town that has Stewart's (diet black cherry in particular) on the shelf? (I'm going through Wishniak withdrawal.)

      Pretty sure I saw them at Target.

        According to the soda guy at Bristol Farms, Stewart's is having some sort of problem with their bottles. (My guess would be some California Prop. 65 parasite sued because the paint had a minuscule amount of something scary in it, but that's just my cynical, uninformed guess.) Apparently, they've been unable to fill orders for to retailers for several months, but hope to be shipping again soon. In any event, thanks for the suggestions guys. Guess I'll just have to tough it out.

          Heavenly Diet Store on Van Nuys just south of the 101 carries 'em.

            I just went to the Stewart's website, and it lists diet root beer and diet orange and cream but *not* diet black cherry. So, maybe they aren't making that flavor any more?


            Did you ask anyone at Galco?

              Dr. Brown's sodas makes a diet black cherry if you can't find Stewarts. I got a bottle or two last time I was at Brent's deli, but I'm sure it's available elsewhere.

                We've bought that flavor at Gelsons before, but it's probably been a few months since we looked for it.

                I've always been able to find them at Bristol Farms.

                    I think Beveridge Warehouse in Culver City has them, not sure though.
