Is Cool Moon sold in stores anymore, or is it only available directly from Carolina Beverages (via the online Cheerwine Store)?

It used to be quite common in stores around the Triad, but I've not seen it in years.

Yes it used to be quite common back when Cheerwine focused on their own line of brands/flavors (Caravan, etc.), before they took on the DPSU brands.

Since Carolina Beverage bottles/distributes DPSU brands through its subsidiary operations, they use Sundrop as their citrus brand in almost every market except where they overlap with Sundrop of Concord.

Sundrop of Concord owns the Sundrop franchise in Stanly, Iredell, Cabarrus and Rowan Co.'s. So Carolina Beverage has kept Cool Moon as the citrus brand specifically for those counties where they do not have Sundrop rights (note that Cool Moon is not a DPSU brand - it is owned by Carolina Beverage). Having said that, it is not distributed in many outlets in those 4 counties - the Spee-Dee Mart stores in Salisbury being one place where it's usually available.
