  1. They used to sell it at Shaw's when it was Star Market. Maybe still?

      America's Market Basket on Hyde Park Ave in Hyde Park.

    2. have seen it at super 88 and in the "international aisle" of many major grocery stores

      1. Not retail, but the Jamaican restaurant Pepper Pot serves it. Good food, tasty soda.

          Does Pepper Pot have music?
          I want to find a good Jamaican/Caribbean place when we're in Boston in April. I'm a vegetarian (mostly) who loves curry and good food, my 5-yr-old loves pan music.
          This is fairly off-topic, but can anyone suggest some good inexpensive places for us to go close to Copley Place, along with the T connections to get to them?

          1. re: saacnmama

            Pepper Pot is a counter service place, a little storefront. I'd be surprised to hear they do live music. Very fine curried goat, jerk chicken, some seafood, and channa. More here:

            On thing I apparently overlooked in my review research is the house-made cupcakes, allegedly very fine, made by the chef's wife.

            It's a couple of blocks on foot from the Dudley Square MBTA hub, with many bus options and an Orange Line stop.

              No music (?) but Flames in Brigham Circle is a solid JA restaurant close to Copley. Take the E Green Line car to Brigham Circle. There are more than 20 Carribean restaurants in the Dorchester neighborhood, most of them serving JA food but other islands are represented.

                Is Flames/ Brigham Circle part of Dorchester?

                1. re: saacnmama

                  Should have made a separate paragraph for that. No, Brigham Circle is not in Dorchester. It's near the longwood medical area of Boston. Flames has 2 locations, the original on 203 near the Blue Hill Ave intersection and the Brigham Circle location at 735 Huntington Ave Boston.

                    Sorry to be a pain. I'm clueless because I'm from out of town (see the Boston thread "Making our break from the heartland") Your brief mention of Dorchester neighborhood in your first post sounded like that would be a nice place to go for a stroll, checking out menus and music as we went. Would it be? Where would be the best part?

                    1. re: PaulB

                      I thought I'd replied to this once, but it's not showing up here, so excuse me if I ask this question twice.
                      When you first mentioned Dorchester, it sounded like a nice spot to stroll and check out menus and music, stopping at a place that appealed to us. Is it? What's the best part of it for said island-cruising? It might be nice to be able to stop at the park with the kiddo, if it's close.
                      Sorry to be such a pain; I'm from out of town, so don't know much about your neighborhoods.

                        Dorchester is, statistically speaking, the most dangerous part of Boston, with the most violent crimes. In the last year, there have been about seven murders within a 5-block radius of that park you linked. BTW, Places is for food places, not general geographical locations.

                        1. re: Luther

                          OK, then. Back to my question (though I may just have to start my own thread)
                          Can anyone suggest a good spot in Boston to hear pan music while enjoying good islands food? A spot with several Caribbean options to choose from would be great, but so would just one sure thing.
                          Please do tell me the location and T connections, but don't get too visual about it or the virtual software police may nab you.

                      2. re: PaulB

                        The original Flames is not the Blue Hill Ave location, it is on Morton Street in Mattapan, Brigham circle was location 2 and Blue Hill Ave was the third location.

              2. I have bought it many times at the Stop and Shop on North Beacon Street in Allston. It's often on sale for 2 bottles for a buck. As Galangatron says, it's located in the international aisle, not with the other soft drinks.

                1. stop and shop malden also carries it in the international section.
