View Full Version : Cheerwine in Texas

I couldn't believe it when I ran across 12packs of Cheerwine in Temple, TX. I didn't know that it was available this far from the Carolinas. Has it gone nationwide now?

No, they added distributors in Texas and a few other states last year.

There's Cheerwine in Temple, TX? Freakin' sweet! I'll probably be going to Austin this summer. I went last year, and I stopped in Temple to look for Nehi. I didn't find it, but I did find Cherry RC and Imperial Sugar Dr Pepper. And other stuff in Austin, like Ol' Bob Miller's Prickly Pear Cactus Cooler. I hope to find some of that next time i'm in the area. And looking at that Cheerwine map, I see that they're in the Lake Charles, LA area. Hopefully at some point i'll be down that way this summer too.

Hey Shatter,

The Albertson's at I-20 and Carrier may still have some Cheerwine 12oz glass bottles. It should be in the cold case by the Bawls.

Nope, I check there every once in a while. They haven't had any in a while. I thought maybe not carrying them anymore was a cost saving measure for Albertson's stores. I know they're not doing too well financially. I talk to the Dr Pepper vendor that stocks the store, and he tells me about all the problems they're having. I'm waiting for H-E-B to buy out most of the DFW locations.
