I am looking to see if this is available in and around the TO Mississauga area. i know this is popular in Newfoundland but i think i have seen it here somewhere and for the life of me i can't remember where.

Thanks in advance.

    I saw a few new flavours of Crush in bottles at either the Shoppers Drug Mart at Avenue Rd/Lawrence or the SDM at Eglinton/Latimer (just w. of Avenue Road). Can’t recall which of those SDMs it was. Honestly, I also can't recall if pineapple was among those new flavours. It might not have been, but I can't recall for certain. I do remember a Tropical Punch flavour being a flavour I'd never seen before. And I can't recall ever seeing Crush in bottles, so I remember being curious about that.

    It might not help, but I hope it does in some way.

    Aside from these suggestions, maybe try Sugar Mountain or a candy store? Isn't there some sort of soda store in Toronto??

    Good luck :)

      I have only ever seen this once and stocked up to surprise my Newfie gf. There is a store in Port Credit that is a Newfoundland/British import store (don't know the name but there are only a few blocks of stores on the main drag). They carry it in their fridge. As far as I know you can only find it in Newfoundland stores.

          Ok, I went back to the SDM at Eglinton, at Latimer. Just west of Avenue Road. They had two bottles left. If they've run out maybe there are more to come. Hey, at least you know where to get them now!

          They also had Tropical Punch, and Grape Soda (which was sold out).

          I've never tried pineapple Crush, but have tried Sumol pineapple drink which is pretty good. Have you tried it? It's usually available at No Frills, and may be close to the flavour you are looking for. Here is a link to the distributor: http://www.fermafoods.com/sumol.htm

            yep i have tried the dumol products before and they are very good, the crush is still a different taste though at least to me. its like comparing orange crush to european orange fanta or c-plus orange, all very similar but distinctive in thier own right.

            Thanks for the input foodyDudey

              The Apple Market in Brampton had a whole display of bottled Pineapple Crush a few weeks ago.

                The Sobeys on Mayfield Rd at Highway 10 has a small NFLD food section, which has pineapple, birch beer, and (I think) cream soda flavour Crush in cans.

                    just a bit of an update, i checked the sobeys on mayfield and stocked up on $pineapple and lime crush, they have the cheapest price so far at $0.69 per can also tried the cream soda, what a difference to the crush cream soda sold here.

                    thanks again for the tip, much appreciated.

                Just had the Tropical Punch Crush. Tastes just like Tahiti Treat, which hasn't been around for, God, like well over 10 years??

                    Well it's back. Just called Tropical Punch.

                    If I remember right, Crush (or whoever controls Crush) owned the Tahiti Treat brand back in the day, so I'm sure this is in fact Tahiti Treat. Tastes exactly like it. In a bottle to boot! Awesome.

                  I just noticed Pineapple Crush today at the IGA in the Beach. They had the grape flavour and the tropical one as well.
