We stopped selling it here (greater Philadelphia area, northern Delaware, southern New Jersey), but the surrounding CCE territories in southern Delaware and Maryland still sell pretty much the full line, if I remember correctly (6pk, 12pk, 2L, 20oz). I think northern NJ only sells the 6pks though.

I only see it in ice tubs at 2 or 3 for a buck. Only seems to sell when heavily discounted.

Has anybody seen 1 liter bottles in their area? Does anybody see the old SURGE logo bottles? Cuz when I was in Las Vegas I bought a 2 Liter that had not expired and it was in an old design SURGE bottle made by Swire Coca-Cola I think. That was last summer. So does anybody else still see SURGE? And what sizes?

Well, about the packaging. When we had Surge, they eventually introduced the new graphics. However, after a short time, they would flip flop back and forth between the old labels and the new ones.

Happens all the time with our Dr Pepper 12pack boxes, too. Weird.

Surge was seen in parts of northern Pennsylvania on 3-29-01. 6 pack can, 12pack can, and 2liter. New and old label. One store had Mello Yello though.

Lack of product rotation at store level. Differrent bottlers running out of old labels faster than others. Lack of rotation at warehouse.

Still here in Atlanta as well as Mr Pibb. Gee, I wonder why! http://www.bevnet.com//bevboard/confused.gif Local production is by a member unit of CCE. Several plastic bottle sizes and cans in different packaging formats ave available. Product pricing appears to be consistent with main line products; there are no special discounting or promotional activities currently. I did not see any 1 litre size, but that does not mean it is not produced for distribution in this area. Only new graphics seem to be on area product.

While looking around this weekend I noticed that Surge was gone and Mello Yello seems to have replaced it.

It is alive as long as we pretend it is.
