Thats a fairly common question. That's the question that brought me here in the beginning. The answer is that there are not many glass Pepsi options left these days. They are:

1. Find an ethnic grocery/dollar/party store that sells imported glass bottles from Mexico.

2. talk to your local Pepsi distributor and see if these are available:

They are supposed to be 28 dollars a case. 10 ounce bottles. Read more here:

Also, there may be other bottlers that have "deli" type mini-bottles available. In the last few years I've seen them in convenience stores in Alabama and Vermont (I think).

3. Drive east as far as you can, then north into Canada. Keep driving northeast...then go over the big bridge to Prince Edward Island, where these are sold:

(Not my pics, by the way, I just copied the links to them.)

One size glass bottle they used to use up in Canada was 1.5 liters. Originally they were tall and narrow, and even though they were plastic coated, the broke too easily. So they went to the squattier size shown at the next to the right end of this picture. I used to trade Pepsi bottles with a collector in Canada and he got me several of the ones shown here. I'm not sure if those styles are all still in use, but the two Diet Pepsis left of the center bottle, and the two Pepsis right of the center bottle are all Candadian 750ML bottles.

Interesting, when I was in Atlanta this week I saw a billboard for "resealable GLASS Coke bottles". Did not have time to make it by a store to find some.

They have been using them in Mexico for years. They look just like the plastic bottles.

I went to my works Christmas party on Saturday night, and the bar was stocked with 330ml glass Pepsi & Diet Pepsi bottles. Extorsionate prices though, £1.70GBP a bottle, which at the current exchange rate is $2.96USD. Tasted better than the fountain crap they were serving as well. But just my luck, I am Coke through and through and the one time I have to drive as my wife couldn't go with me, and the bar serves Pepsi. Typical.

Hey, Andy nice picture of the PEI Pepsi bottles :D . By the way, you can still find 750 mL 7-Up bottles with the vertical writing like you show in your picture there.
