Where do I find Shasta soda??? - Fri, 06/20/08 10:14 PM

I remember drinking Shasta sodas as a kid but can not find them now. I did have a local store or two that carried Faygo, but they have stopped that now. I know both are owned by National Bevarage Co. but they won't answer my emails. BTW, Food Service Direct has them but WAYYYYY overpriced.

Any help here???

There is no one bottling them in NYC, but I have seen them from time to time at Dollar Tree, both in 2 liter size and 2/$1 cold in the soda refrigerators in front of the store. I do remember reading Hayward, CA on the label which led me to this from Superpages:
Shasta Beverages, Inc.
26901 Industrial Boulevard, Hayward, CA 94545
(510) 783-3200
(510) 783-8681 (fax)
(800) 326-8640 (toll-free)

There was only a limited selection of flavors at Dollar Tree. Good luck!

I would suggest the dollar stores as well. Maybe Aldi's? I know we had it when I worked at Kmart, but that was back in the mid-90's.

I can't help but I also drank them as a kid and made a collection of cans of every flavor.

If memory serves me, there were quite a few especially for circa 1969, maybe 12 or more.

This one started it.



Do they still say "It Hasta Be Shasta" ?

Dennis,
I'll check the stores in my area. Any particular flavor you are looking for?

Sams Club in Reading Pa has 24 packs of 12 oz cans in several different flavors.

That tip from j-mar prompted me to see what was on the Sam's Club web site. For places like PA, and NY they list Shasta variety packs of 24 cans. Same for the Sam's Club near Hayward, CA. For Sam's Club in Cary, NC, they list Faygo variety packs of 24 cans. While I have noticed those budget brands are often shipped long distances, there is a lunacy limit. NC may just be a "dry" state.

Also, an entry on Wikipedia indicates it is "especially obtainable" in 99 cent stores. Except in "dry" states.

Dennis,
The Wal-mart here (just off I-85, Garden Road) had regular Shasta cola on Wednesday, July 2, 2008.

Teresa, too bad I didn't check back sooner on this. I was in burlington over the weekend. Wife and I made a little road trip up there to hit the antique shop. I'll have to remember and make a road trip there.

Every "99 cent only" store I've ever been to carries it. In Phoenix they carry the Mexican Coke too.

Good luck!

For a moment I thought you were asking about where to find FANTA. I was going to respond "Hell."

Oddly the only place I remember seeing it was around your area of NC, Dennis.
