Ting grapefruit soda - preferably Jamaican grocery...

So, I am addicted to Ting grapefruit soda for the summer. So I stalk the Jamaican cart on 51st and 7th and hoard them for $2.50 a pop. It's getting expensive to do that. Anyone know of a Jamaican or Caribbean grocery store where I can stock up for less? A bonus if they have the pink grapefruit Ting or the diet Ting! Thanks!

  1. I haven't been, but from the looks of the exterior, this place looks like it might rule as far as Jamaican grocers go. It's a brand spanking new place the size of most regular American supermarkets except they're loaded with items all Jamaican. Check it out.

    1. Anywhere on Church Street around Parkside Avenue in Brooklyn, Christie's Jamaican Patties on Flatbush Avenue around 8th Ave., and probably any Golden Krust (there's one on 14th St. between 6th and 5th Aves in Manhattan).

        I buy Ting by the cart full @ the Stop and Shop on Hillside.

        They have a Jamaican Imports quarter asile in the middle of the store. They also have Diet Ting too.

        Oh yeah I normally get them 10 for 10 @ S&S.

      2. There's a beverage wholesaler on Lefferts Ave between Flatbush and Washington (right near the Prospect Park Q stop) that sells Ting by the case. Not sure about the price.
