Ting? (N. Pinellas county)

  • 7

Would very much appreciate finding a place that sells it! Regular or pink is fine.

Thanks!

  1. In south Florida the Publix markets carry Ting. It is not located in the beverage isle. It is located in the a small specialty food section with other Jamaican items.

      I've checked the two closest Publix markets with no luck. Lots of Malta and a sprinkling of ginger beer...

      I'll see if they can order it! Thank you!

    2. How about the jerk center in Tarpon Springs? They have it on their menu and I am certain they could sell you a pack or two. If it is like most other Jamaican restaurants, they may have a little store where you can buy similar products.

        Thanks - I had forgotten about them. $2 a bottle, regular Ting only. It hit the spot! I need to remember to inquire about a special order at Publix.

        The aroma was great in there but I wasn't hungry. Have you eaten there? If so, how was it and what did you enjoy?

          Nope, I've not eaten there - but I will keep it in mind if I have the hankering for some jerk etc.

      2. Also, the WalMart near me stocks Ting. They have 2 bottle formats - the small glass bottle with a cap and a 20oz plastic bottle. Both $1.10 or something like that.

          Thanks - you are the best!

          I tried to special order* through a Pinellas county Publix to no avail...

          I'm back in NC now and can find it easily - even at my local Kroger. I'll pass the info along to family. I introduced my Father to Ting and he really liked it. It reminded him of Wink, a soda from the '60's...but he felt Ting was better!

          * I had three special orders disappear into a black hole. I tried one of them 5 times before I finally received word that it was not possible. Might be worth trying again if anyone else is searching.
