Mexican Coca Cola Alert

This is for those Hounds who enjoy Mexican Coke; it is available at King Ranch Supermarket located at 328 Huntington Drive, Monrovia. This is between Alta Vista and Magnolia on the south side of Huntington.

Advertised price: A case of 24 bottles 12 oz is $18.99 + crv and tax. Single 12 oz bottle is 99 cents.

I don't know if these are good prices or not, since I don't drink Coke very often but it is Mexican Coke with no HFCS.

        Was it in glass bottles or plastic? I think there is a taste difference...but I'm not a regular Coke drinker.

          Mexican Coke comes in glass bottles and they are also available at Sam's Club.

          I thought I saw them for sale (individual bottles) at Glacier's Ice Cream at Manhattan Beach. You may want to call them to verify.

            Yep. Glacier has em. Dublin Dr Pepper too (which is all I care about.)

            I also saw them last night at Joe's Pizza (individually) in Santa Monica. As well as by the case at Beverage Warehouse in Culver City.

              Valu Plus, Lawndale (or was it La Fiesta) has 500 ml for $1.50.

              The Inglewood Costco always has them in stock.

                Oddly enough, I was in the Little Tokyo Marukai and they had individual bottle of Mexican coke for (I believe) $1.29 apiece. The recently mentioned Don Rogelio's Tex-Mex restaurant in Lennox has it, but it costs something like $2.00. These prices don't include those California CRV, etc. I also saw Mexican Sprite at Don Rogelio's too.

                    They also carry the "good" Mexican Coke at iBrowse in Alhambra. It's on Main Street. I think they are $1.50 each.

                      I've been buying Mexican Coke @ the Inglewood Costco for the last two years & when I went in there last week they said they no longer carry it & that none of their stores have it. It this true? I am fairly certain it is real Mexican Coke as the first ingredient listed on the stick-on label is sugar as well as on the bottle cap. It was bottled in Mexicali & definitely has a clean non-HFCS flavor. Any other places in the South Bay to buy Mexican Coke? Thanks.

                        The actual Inglewood Costco stopped carrying it, but the BUSINESS Costco (that you can enter with a regular Costco membership card) still carries it. The Business Center Costco is very close to the Inglewood Costco:
                        12530 Prarie Ave
                        Hawthorne, CA 90250

                        I didn't even know this kind of Costco existed until I started hunting for Mexican Coke. Now I sometimes prefer to shop there if I know I don't need anything specific to the regular Costco. It doesn't have the same products and is more geared toward businesses, but it's practically empty and always easy to park.

                            About the same price (or so), at the Super A's in Northeast L.A. (at least Highland Park & Cypress).

                              That's usually the same price you can get them at Vallarta markets.
