I've been away from the board awhile so forgive me if this has been posted before. Just wanted to report that the Shaw's on Western Ave in Brighton has started selling the Mexican Coca-Cola. It's in the juice case in the produce section and also in the ethnic food aisle in the Mexican section.

    Capone's on Mass Ave in Somerville also carries it. Or maybe that's Cambridge...

      The Boston Shaker store in Davis sells Mexican Coke.

      Plenty of places in Union Square, Somerville, sell Brazilian Coke (sugared just like Mexican) including the bodega two stores to the left (on the corner) when facing the Precinct bar.

        There was Mexican Coke in a check-out cooler at Porter Square Shaw's of all places. Not sure if that was just a random find, however.

          for comparison, try the Thums Up (Indian Coke) at D'Guru (on Devonshire north of Franklin) (I'm not a Coke user so can't compare)

            i love thums up but i don't think it tastes much like coca cola. it's slightly similar but with a faint peppery aftertaste
