    Saw it Monday in the Costco in Gaithersburg. I am not sure if there is a hekshur, but it was cane sugar only coke (in a bottle!) so no hekshur is technically needed as there is no corn syrup.

      That is probably the Mexican Coke. it is also made with sugar, not the HFCS. So i dont know if that is the only thing that is needed to make it kosher (no corn), or if there is more involved in making it deemed kosher. We have bought some of the Mexican coke from Costco, but it is expensive. I would think finding the passover coke would be cheaper.

        7MM 2/$3 ...Hmm. Does Wegmans Hunt Valley sell KP Coke? Or what's the price difference between Giant vs. 7MM? Wegmans Cheaper (I know Not KP 2L Coke is 0.99 @ Wegmans) I want to stock up!

            Give it another week or so. Traditionally within the Jewish community, Passover goods aren't sold until after Purim, which is March 20 this year.

            I'm sure retailers won't honor that, per se, but that's when you'll probably see the explosion of Passover-friendly goods.

        Firehook Bakeries always sell Passover products including cake, brownies, and macaroons. They are baked fresh daily. You can also call ahead for a special order. They may be a bit more pricey than your average grocery store's Passover products, but the quality will be much better.

          They, probably, also will not be Kosher for Passover.

            I assume these are passover-friendly cakes? Never heard of this, and I live right next to a Firehook.

          I bought some at the Shopper's at 7 Corners over the weekend. I've been seeking it out for years, but, alas, now realize that I prefer Coke with corn syrup after all. Oh well.

            In addition to the kosher stores Shalom's, Shaul's, and Koshermart, the Shoppers on Randolph Rd. and Magruders in Wheaton will both have, if they don't already. If I recall correctly, Shoppers had them for $1 last year.

              Giant Foods used to carry KfP Coke in all of their stores, but now stocks it only in their "Passover Superstores." Check this week's Giant circular to see where the nearest Passover Superstore to you is. I know Pikesville, Kentlands, Rockville Pike, all 4 stores in Silver Spring off the top of my head but there are probably 12-15 different ones in all. 2L bottles only should start showing up this week. This week's flyer for the 7 Mile Market in Pikesville has them 2/$3.
