Yeah, it's been 8 years sinse I've had this drink; but now, I had another taste. Everyone is right, it's really only found near Colombus,Ga. I went all this state looking sinse March to find the drink. I'm glad it's still in Colombus. It still tastes like I remembered.

It can be found in a few locations throughout Oklahoma. It comes from Arkansas, so I would assume it is there as well.

I can no longer find it in GA or AL, for that matter. I guess I'll have to come out to AR or OK.

It was around the New Orleans/Baton Rouge area in Louisiana about two or three years ago.

Awesome, there are more people out there than I thought that love this drink. Something else that's crazy, is that I first posted this topic exactly 5 years ago. Weird, and funny how time flies. I'm ashamed that I misspelled Columbus, Ga.

Yes, Blue Nehi does exist and someone just brought me 12 bottles, from Mellow Moon Bottling in Paragould AR.

The blue tastes fastastic, this bottler does a nice job. The grape and strawberry (also very good) were from Mellow Moon. Peach is local (Independent Bev.) and the orange is from RC Chicago by way of southside VA.

I bought a couple bottles of Peach Nehi in Tyler, TX, and they were from Mellow Moon Bottling. I gave one to my mom. She loves Peach Nehi! Too bad they don't have a diet version, so I wouldn't have to hear her complain about going off her diet just to drink it.

all the sodas i tried from mellow moon were great - very crisp, lots of carbonation - heck, the bottom of a 20oz is just as good as when it's opened.
a cold peach nehi is hard to beat!

their website only shows their own brand (Mellow Moon) for sale.

I expected to find Nehi in south Louisiana, but I didn't. I found all sorts of flavors of Nehi a few years ago.

I thought that there was supposed to be a watermelon flavored Nehi. I remember somebody mentioning that it was available.

walkingcorpse, take a drive down to Osceola, MO, Scott's General Store sells a bunch of Nehi flavors.

I remember someone on this board telling me a couple of years ago that Temple Bottling Co. in Temple, TX made Watermelon Nehi. Nowadays, i'm not even sure that Temple Bottling even makes Nehi anymore.

I have an old bottle of Wild Red Nehi. It's not in one of those 'splash' bottles like the ones in your picture, it's in a really generic 20oz. bottle.

Actually, I never drank it. It's still sitting in my pantry.

Walkingcorpse, there's a place in KC called the Better Cheddar that may have it...

I would love to try wild red and see if it tasted like the Nehi Red from the 60's.

Does anybody know where I could get blue Nehi?

It's been 15 years since I've had any and I'd really love to find some.

I called that Moon place and they said RC Cola is the distributer of Blue nehi. So contact your local store and find out who the Rc distributer is and call them they may be able to order it.
