RUBY RED SQUIRT???!!! Wed, 12/16/09 12:29 AM (permalink)
Hello,
 
I've been searching high n' low for this soda, but can't find it in my area (SoCal)! We used to have it, but it's been decades. I've contacted Squirt and 3 local stores, but nobody can help me. I want to get some for a friend's Christmas present and for myself. Would anyone out there who has Ruby Red Squirt in their area be able to help a fellow Roadfooder out? I'd be forever in your debt!
 
Thanks,
Todd

    Let me check for you.  I have been getting it periodically for myself locally, but there are very few places that have handled it.  If I can still get it, it would be in 12-pack cans.  I have no idea on the shipping cost, but I would assume it will be much higher than the cost of the soda.  If you are still interested in it, considering the shipping cost, how many 12 packs would you be interested in?
     
    Edit: I just did a quick check with UPS online, and just the shipping cost for 4-day shipping (the cheapest) from here to you would be about $15 for one 12-pack (which weighs about 6 lbs.).  This would make the total cost per 12-pack close to $20.

      How much do you want & when do you need it by?

          I see it fairly often, but not all the time here in Kentuciana...in 2 litre and 12-pk cans.

              Hi Bill,
               
              If you can get it, could you get me 2 12 packs? How would I go about finding out what shipping would be?
               
              Thanks!!!

                Hi Mar,
                 
                I e-mailed BevMo, but they never responded. Neither did Ralph's or Vons. Albertson's tried, but couldn't get it from their distributor.

                          My local market...a subset off of the Kroger Company... has the Dr Pepper labels  at 4 12 pks for $11.00 this week (same for Coke and Pepsi Products, but no mix-n-match allowed). I just brought home 4 12 pks of VERNORS for $11.  That's a real good price for it here.
                           
                          The Dr Pepper guy was stocking his shelves, so I asked about the Ruby Red Squirt and he told me I could order the 12 pk cans, but the minimum was 10 12 pks for a "special" order delivered to the market.

                            Our area Krogers have the same deal here starting today for a week (limit 4/card), Al, except it is mix-or-match.  However,  the best deal on Pepsi products here is $2.44 a 12-pack (limit 4) thru Saturday at Cub Foods.
                             
                            By the way, just so some of you can drool.....That price is also for the Throwback Pepsi and Throwback Mountain Dew

                              Wow, $2.44's a great price!
                               
                              See, Kroger's is Ralph's here so I don't know why they haven't responded to my e-mail!
                               
                              I'm waiting to hear from Bill, he was going to check ground shipping for me.
                               
                              Thanks everyone!

                                    Have you checked Stater Brothers Markets? I used to by a lot of 'other' regional soda's at my local Stater's !

                                      No Al, but I will check now! I had thought about checking them, but I don't shop there that often so I didn't think about pursuing them.
