Cott's Black Cherry Soda

finefoodie55 Aug 18, 2010 02:19 PM

Where can you find Cott's Black Cherry Soda in cans ( preferably sold in cases of 24).I can find the 1l plastic bottles but that's no good it looses the bubbles too quickly.

    It used to be available in supermarkets with a large Jewish clientele (e.g. Côte St-Luc). Haven't checked recently, though. A thread from 2005 has a few other ideas: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/97951

      I've seen these for sale at several dollar stores - IIRC, they were about 65 cents per can, when I bought a few on Wellington.

        If you looking for other black cherry sodas should try some of the American ones that I have found in Montreal: Stewart's, Boylan's and Dr. Brown's.

        I have seen them in a lot of Depanneurs here in Montreal and they come only in cans or glass bottles.

          For Dr. Brown's I've only seen diet Black Cherry soda. Is non-diet Black Cherry soda from Dr. Brown's available in Montreal?

            Dr Browns and Stewart's are not the same it is a taste from childhood that is the hook and the density of bubbles. I still can't find the cases of the stuff. The butcher shop that is also a sausage counter on St Urbain above Bernard has them but he only sells them by the unit.Please help !

              Try contacting customer service:

                I highly doubt you'll find cases of 24.

              The Asian run grocery on Sherbrooke in Westmount (forget the name of the store) sells them, both regular and diet in cans. They also have a large selection of other canned and bottled root beers including Dr. Brown's, Stewart's and Boylans. It's the one right near Victoria...

                    They don't have Cott's Black Cherry soda(definitely not in cases).

                      maybe not in cases but I am 100% certain that I've bought them in cans from the fridge in the back last summer. I remember because I filled an entire shopping basket with them. I haven't been in months but that much I know for sure.

                Also, wouldn't Snowdon Deli probably sell them at the take-out counter?

                  Yes, only in cans, not by the case(for Snowdon Deli). Many of the Montreal establishments serving a large clientele would carry Cott's Black Cherry soda.

                    I meant serving a large Jewish clientele.

                    Buying Cott's Black Cherry soda in cans at Snowdon Deli would be expensive way to do it. They charge at least $1.25 per can(even at the take-out counter).

                    I had a brainwave and checked the Distribution Aubut catalogue for you. Bingo:

                    205547 CERISE NOIR (can+dep) Cott 12x355ML 1

                    Looks like they carry cases of 12 cans. Could contact them first just to double-check.

                        After you do get it. I'm curious how much they charge for a 12-can case of Cott's Black Cherry soda.

                          Not Cott's, but a new IGA has opened on the West Island at the corner of Gouin and Fredmeir in Pierrefonds and they have a massive kosher section. I noticed they have six pack cans of Cherry Coke and Cherry Coke Zero.

                            That's maybe the only location in Montreal carrying Cherry Coke. Unless Cherry Coke is back in Montreal market again.

                              I couldn't find Cherry Coke or Cherry Coke Zero listed on Coke's Canadian corporate website. My guess is that this stuff is being brought in from the States. This IGA's kosher section is not only huge, but permanent, and easily dwarfs those temporary ones put up around Passover by the chains.
