Can't find Blenheim Ginger Ale (in Augusta, GA)

can anyone help? I don't mind making a small road trip. Hildebrant's, an old German grocery store used to carry it, but no longer do. Fresh Market used to carry it, but seemingly doesn't anymore (I called and they said they're having a hard time getting any). So, I'm stuck.

Any help?

  1. My usual source is the Fresh Market, but like you've found, it's spotty to be able to find it there. When I do, I usually stock up.

      I would just order it from the factory, but shipping is so much!

    2. I think fresh market has officially stopped carrying it. The two in the triad (hq for fresh market) have stopped carrying it. I have more success at smaller vendors in my area - bakeries even a barbershop

      1. From what I've gathered from retailers/restaurants, Blenheim has no distributor. Merchants have to actually drive to the plant if they want to carry their product, which makes it very difficult for anyone to find it on the shelves in their own town. With the price of gas going up, I expect it will only get harder to find. Unless you want to take a drive up 95 to the plant, I think you're out of luck.

        1. Love that stuff. There is no better. It's a shame it's so hard to find.

          Feel the burn.

          1. Josh, the Fresh Market has begun carrying Blenheim Ginger Ale again. I just saw a display of it at the Asheville store with a sign saying it was "back for your pleasure" or some such. $5.29 per six pack.

            So, get some while you can.
