(DTW) RC Cola

Has anyone out there in the Detroi area had any problem finding RC Cola? I didn't see it at my local Wal Mart or Meijers either in the aisles or the endcaps. The last two places I found it were today at the Carnavale Market in Pontiac, and a Kroger in Birmingham. I also never see it at any fast food drink fountains.

  1. I *never* see it at fast food outlets. The last fast food outlet I saw it at was a local Arby's perhaps no sooner than 5 years ago. All fast food that I know of belongs to Coke or Pepsi.

    But yes: I still see it all the time at Walmart, Kroger, and other places. Usually I see it in single serving 12 ounce plastic bottles and 2 liter bottles, but I'm sure it's available in other forms as well.

    I never intentionally look for it as I don't drink it, but I see it all the time.

    1. I see it at Meijer in Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor. One place I've seen it is in vending machines at rest stops as you make your way up north.

      1. I see all RC over the place, especially since they're pushing those 10 drinks now, and RC is one of them.I don't recall them or any 7up product being distributed by fountain except for the ones where other companies have the contract to distribute their syrup to fountains.

        1. If you have a SodaStream or would buy seltzer water, you can make your own.
          Sam's sells RC syrup as a 5gal bag-in-a-box. I don't know if you'd need a resellers/business license to buy it or not, though.

          1. pretty sure I've seen it at Holiday in RO
