Ting? (N. Pinellas county)

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

    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!

      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.

        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.
