Have you checked Walmart? It is not always in the main beverage aisle.

Yes, you should be able to find it at any Wal-Mart. It's distributed through their own warehouses.

In addition to Orange, they also have Grape and Strawberry. 12 oz. glass bottles, and they're sold in 6 packs.

If you're looking for PET or cans, I'd say your chances aren't as great. The only way is if Pepsi has Sunkist in your area, meaning the third-tier bottler will do Crush. Pepsi in some places does Crush as well (Marion, IL Pepsi, and New Orleans). However, I think Pepsi has Slice, and third-tier has Sunkist in MN.

On a hunch, I checked an indie Pepsi bottler's site, and they do carry Crush.

They have Orange, Grape, and Strawberry. They also carry all four varities of Squirt, plus Tahitian Treat, Country Time, Seagram's and Canada Dry, Hawaiian Punch, plus all four Dr Peppers.

They also have the full line of Pepsi products, including Slice (that's odd). They are also a beer and water distributor. If I remember correctly, they should be running Fridge Mates by this time.

The company's name is Bernick's. They are in Wilmar, Waite Park, Barnum, and Duluth. They also have one office in Dresser, WA.

All 4 DP's as in regular, diet, CF, and CF diet? No Red Fusion?

As for Duluth, I know someone told me ABC ran Dr Pepper there, so they must not have it in all their territory.

As for Bernick, what about lemon lime? They run 7Up or Sierra Mist?

There are quite a few Dr Pepper distributors in Minnesota, I think at least 15. Bernick looks to only have it in their main territories around their HQ in St. Cloud.

They had 7-Up, but they now have Mist.

No mention of Red Fusion on their website.

In Canada, Crush is sold by Pepsi, including lime in parts of canada.

Humm why would Crush be sold by pepsi when Coca-Cola has the rights to cadbury brands outside of the U.S.? PS I would love to have Lime.

drink. we need to focus on the part of your last sentence where you said, "outside of the U.S.?" right there, that should answer any questions.

I don't understand? Coca-Cols dose have rights to cadbury brands OUTSIDE of the U.S.A. So why dose pepsi have Crush

I've lived in MN forever, and have never had a problem finding crush, or diet crush, in orange, grape, or this wretched, syrupy strawberry flavour. Cans, bottles, and anythign else you can think of.

Arg, forgot, if you're in MN and having trouble, then be sure to check Rochester. I know there's a pepsi bottler down ther for sure.
