    Why not make your own, like drive-in's used to in the 50's and 60's. Much better than the canned stuff.

    1 1/2 cups Coca-Cola®
    2 tbsp grenadine syrup
    2 tbsp maraschino cherry juice

    Add ice and stir.

        Gummi Boutique on 10th (in Kensington) has it. I saw it two days ago, right in the middle of the store.

          There's also a Gummy Boutique at Richmond Rd & 37 St. in the little strip mall across from A.E. Cross school.

          Cherry Coke (and 7-Up) from the U.K. is available at Great Taste of Britain, at both the Eau Claire and Market Mall locations.

          I know I saw cherry coke a few months ago at either the candy store in Kensington or the one on 17 ave sw.

              The place on 17th is called Freak Lunchbox and I have seen cherry Coke there. The Gummi Boutique in Kensington also has it but I remember it being extremely overpriced.

                Overpriced relative to what, though? If you want it, unfortunately, that's the price you're going to pay in Canada since it's all US imports. 100 Grand bars are a hell of a lot more expensive at Freak than they are at a US gas station but try finding a Mr Big or Cadbury Flake in the US...
