Jones Cola in the Boston area?

davis_sq_pro May 25, 2010 07:08 AM

Hi all,

I'm a big fan of Jones Soda's cola, and used to be able to buy it at the grocery stores in my area (Melrose, Saugus, Stoneham, etc). Several months ago it disappeared off of the shelves at all of the stores, although they still carry the root beer and other flavors. I e-mailed Jones a couple of times to ask about distribution to the area and never heard back... Does anyone know if the cola is still available somewhere in the area?

        Kmart? Target? Not places I usually shop for foodstuffs, but I'm open to going there if absolutely necessary :-)

        Thanks for the tips!

          Sorry that I misread your original post by ignoring the "cola" requirement. Several Stop & Shop's in Framingham carry multiple flavors but I've never seen the cola variety.

          I thought I'd seen it at Porter Square Shaws too....only a few varieties, but it was there as of....about 6 months ago

            Most of the stores sell a few varieties -- but I'm only looking for the cola, not the root beer, fruit flavors, etc.

              OK...plus I retract my statement about PS Shaw's. was there recently and they did NOT have it (in any flavor). Perhaps they were in the process of discontinuing carrying back when I saw it there (hence the sale price at the time). Or, I'm just wrong altogether.

          Try Target.
