Pepsi Natural, Throwback or MexiCoke in the Hudson Valley?
- itsmagic Apr 28, 2009 05:02 PM
Are there any stores in the NY Hudson Valley or Albany Capital area selling Pepsi Throwback, Pepsi Natural or Mexican Coca Cola? I occasionally find Mexican Cokes at small restaurants, but no one selling six packs or more....
i *believe* that a couple of the mexican places on main street in poughkeepsie sell the mexican coca cola (i know, the different kind) but i can't remember which ones.
called a couple places yesterday to check on the pepsi throwback (stop and shop, kmart) in poughkeepsie and they knew about it, didn't have it...
re: bob gaj
and to follow up...
they're not in the poughkeepsie area. called a bunch of stores, none of them had it. one of them had the pepsi delivery man *in the store*, and he didn't even know what it was!
also, the mexican cokes i mentioned above were only individuals, so that doesn't count. sorry....
re: bob gaj
Thank you for calling around.... Looks like we are out of luck in this area. On another board, someone posted a link to a page run by Pepsi which allows a search for any Pepsi product within 50 miles of a specified location:
Unfortunately, it appears that Pepsi Throwback and Pepsi Natural are
not currently distributed in MHV or the Capital region.
Oh well, I needed a excuse for a road trip soon anyway... ;-)
no prob; however, as of a few days ago, that link wasn't representative of where the pepsi was. i checked on a couple sites, found some places where people had purchased it (ie. target at west hartford, and i think someone saw them in danbury, as well as nyc) and put those zip codes into the pepsi search engine. they also returned a "not available within 50 miles" message.
got this back from pepsi.
"Thank you for contacting us at Pepsi-Cola regarding the availability
of Pepsi Throwback. I am sincerely sorry that I am not able to assist
you with your request. Unfortunately, the bottler in your area has
decided not to carry / distribute this product.
We do operate under a franchise bottler system and as such, bottlers
have the freedom to decide which product flavors and package sizes
they will offer. For this reason, local availability can vary across
I saw Pepsi Throwback in the A&P on Central Ave. in Scarsdale last night while shopping...and they're having a 4/$11 sale on 12-packs.
I found Pepsi Throwback in a Hess Gas Station mart in Ballston Spa last evening, of all places. They had single bottles as well as cases.
I have not had a chance to see if other Hess stations further south (Capitol Dist) also now have them, or if other kinds of stores have now gotten them in also, but I will take a look around.
Never occurred to me to check gas stations and convenience stores rather than supermarkets and big box stores but that is where it was.
