Does anybody know where I can find cases or 6 packs of Guarana Antarctica Brazilian Soda? I'm not far from King of Prussia, but I am willing to travel to Philadelphia if necessary.

Thanks!

    I asked Michael's in K of P if they could get Antarctica beer from Brazil (actually quite good) but they could not. I don't know what the status of Brazil/U.S. trade is right now but, if getting Brazilian products is as difficult as getting a Brazilian visa, don't hold your breath.

      The mexican grocery store near my house (La Hacienda in East Palo Alto, California) has it on their shelves, so I know it's being regularly imported. Sorry that's a bit far from your house. Mexican markets have it in the "specialty" section around here, since some central american immigrants have developed a taste for it. Next to things like the El Salvadorian cola.

      Maybe at a grocery on or near Castor Avenue? The Copacabana Brazilian Nightclub may have a suggestion on where to find it 215-722-4524. Antarctica Guarana comes to the US in both 12 oz cans and 2 liter bottles.

        I know it would be expensive but I googled it and I found a few sites selling it ...some out of stock but found one Bonanzle.com that had 2 12 packs left ...$20 each plus $ 10.95 in shipping.....
