Where to buy Mexican Coke in Delaware or southern PA?

I live in Wilmington and figure that there must be a Mexican grocery store around that sells the "real thing." Please let me know if you are aware of such a location.

    Tollgate Liqours on Lancaster Ave sells it by the case. I have picked up the singles at Janssen's Market on Kennett Pike. I think there is a place in the back of Prices Corner that has it too.

      I think they have it at the Gigante Market across from Prices Corner (where Kirkwood Hwy meets Rt. 41.)

      It is nothing like a Mexican grocery store, but Casapulla's Subs in Hockessin sells Mexican Coke ($1.59/bottle). I was pretty surprised to find that yesterday when I went in there for the first time.

          Brewer's Outlet just over the state line on 202 in that little group of shops in the median also has Mexican Coke, but you have to buy it by the case.

        Actually I found Mexican Coke in Acme supermarkets two weeks ago. It was in the soda aisle and it was a six pack of class bottles. Good luck!

          I saw that as well. Ever since I started this thread it seems like it is popping up everywhere!

            I have a question of the people who regularly purchase Mexican Coke. Do the bottles tend to have different fill lines. I go to some small hole in the wall Mexican restaurants and I've noticed in a few now that the bottles are filled to different levels. I'm thinking some of these places are refilling the bottles.
