        If you don't find it there...I know for sure that La Gloria in Bellingham has it. It's a bit of a trip, though.

        I was talking to one of the owners of Fresh Is Best recently and they appear keen to bring in items that will sell, so if they don't have it already, be sure to mention you'd buy it if they did :-).

          We use to buy ours all the time from Costco, but I don't know if Canadian Costcos carry the same stuff.

            You can get this at Dona Cata's Taqueria on Victoria drive. (at about 38th Ave).

              Make sure you check the ingredients. Last time I bought a bottle of Mexican Coke® it had corn syrup instead of sugar. Yecchh!

              I'd try a kosher shop -- I believe all coke/pepsi products are kosher, but kosher shops often stock Coke products from obscure locations. I bought an imported Coke which used real sugar at Omnitsky on Cambie years ago.

                Have you tried calling El Comal in Burnaby? (604) 420-1327

                I'm pretty sure I've seen it there in the past.

                  I've come across three places along Commercial Drive which carry it: Fig Mart on Grant Street, El Sureno on E. 1st, and Dollar Grocers near the Broadway SkyTrain.
