Trying to find Pokka black canned coffee in or near Toronto

I've been looking all over for Pokka black coffee. I used to buy it at a supermarket in the mall next to Pacific mall, but they seem to have stopped selling it. I see Pokka milk coffee all over the place, but I've tried it and it tastes pretty vile and doesn't give me nearly as much energy. If you know of anywhere that still sells it... you have no idea how grateful I'd be.

Here's a picture of the one I'm looking for:

    I am quite certain that I saw this at T&T Cherry St today. They have a "japanese" food celebration happening in the store - so not sure if this is a regularly stocked item or just on display for the duration of the sales event. (other flavours are available too)

      Thanks- I finally found it there during the Night Market! It's not exactly the same as it used to be, but it's the closest thing.

      Have you checked Sanko Trading on Queen Street W? Not sure if it's there but they have lots of Japanese drinks.

        I called Sanko- they said that they had the cappuccino flavour, but not the black coffee one (and he didn't know when they'd get it in next). The cappuccino one might be worth trying, though.

        Pretty sure I saw it at PAT Central tonight but I'd hate to send you on a wild goose chase. Maybe give a call first.

          PAT Central is pretty close to me; it wouldn't be hard to check. I go there a lot and I haven't seen it, but I'll try it again. Thanks.

            No, I didn't see it there. They have some other canned coffees that I might try, though.
