Well I wish I could help you locally, but they sell it by the cases here in Kansas City.

Harford County Maryland is probably the closest to you that you'll find it.

Southern NJ/Northern & Central DE/Southeastern PA is Canada Dry Delaware Valley. They don't produce Squirt.

Further west and north in Pennsylvania is Davis Beverages. I'm almost certain they don't produce it, either.

Canada Dry Potomac does produce it, though. But only in 20oz 6pks.

Travel down I-95, pass through Delaware, and then go over the Susquehanna River. That'll put you in Harford County. There are plenty of places to find it, right off the highway.

Exit #85 -- take 22 East towards Aberdeen. At the second light, you can make a left to get into the Klein's Supermarket shopping center, or a right to get into the Mars Supermarket shopping center. One or both of them should have it, and Klein's often puts Canada Dry 6pks on sale. They also have Welch's Peach and Strawberry, which are pretty rare flavors around here in 20oz form. The various Diet Rite flavors are also showing up a lot more as well.

I've seen it from Davis in Harrisburg in 2L, 20 oz. and 12 packs.

I've seen single 20 oz. from CD Potomac as well. I saw them in a Walgreens in Baltimore.

Thanks for correcting me on Davis. I didn't remember seeing Squirt out this far from them (they have pretty good representation at the Super Wally in Parkesburg, PA).

It's also a little more difficult to find all the flavors of 16.9oz from them. I only remember seeing PA Dutch in Sunbury. CD Delaware Valley imports 7up, Sunkist, A&W, and CD (maybe diet, too) in 16.9 from Davis.

I've seen Squirt in PA off of 322. I'm not sure where they got it from.

It's also available in the Reading area from CCE. Just the regular and maybe diet but definitely no Ruby Red.

Squirt is increasely getting more common around here in four flavors: Squirt, diet Squirt, Squirt RR, diet Squirt RR in most sizes. Northstar Beverages in Kent, WA bottle them.

Citrus Burst.. that's just the tagline they use for the brand. It's still called Squirt.

Hi I just took a look at Squirt again. Oops it's not Kent. it shows YC that's Noel of Yakima, WA. for all sizes of Squirt and RR Squirt.

I'm also looking for Squirt in my area. I live in northwest Florida. We haven't had Squirt here in years.

I hate to tell you, but you're out of luck on Squirt in the South. I don't know of anywhere in the Southeast that has Squirt of any kind.

A couple of things you can try:

1) Contact Southeast Atlantic Beverages's Ocala office:
3337 SW 7TH Street
Ocala, FL 34475
Phone: 352-732-9777

Their website

http://www.seabev.com/available.htm

indicates that the Ocala office could have Squirt available (but it covers north only to the Gainesville area.) Maybe they re-sell to the companies that cover the panhandle.

2) You might also try looking in Hispanic grocery stores. Our local DPSU bottler in Charlotte makes Squirt in 2 liters but only sells it through mexi-grocers. Maybe you have a similar situation.
Good luck.

Yeah, I got my current supply from Nebraska. So it looks like I'm out of luck unless I can find it at the Hispanic grocery stores like cheer-wined said. Thanks.

I have seen some 20oz Squirt in my hometown of York PA *Which is about 2 hours from Philadelphia*. But it can only be found in one convience store in the whole County! If you wan't the address, I can give it to you.

Hey, mikeg3 - just got a question. How popular is Mello Yello in your state FL? I know a lot of it is in Georgia.

A thought -- you might try some Fresca at the mexigrocers. Mexican Fresca is made with sugar -- it's not a diet soda like here in the US.

I believe I have also seen Mexican Squirt.

Goldring Gulf Distributing in Pensacola is a DPSU distributor, they might have it.

We have all four flavors here in Indianapolis from ABC. We also have 12oz. glass Mexican product. We also have 1.5PET from a Pepsi bottler in Mexico in Swirl bottles. The glass and the PET seem to come from different Mexican bottlers.

melloyelloluver, We've got Mello Yello in Pensacola but Mountain Dew is much more popular.

mikeg3, what's the beverage scene like in NW florida these days? i am thinking about some vacation time in Ft. Walton or Panama City area, just wondered if you've got any odd brands to look for around there.

There are no odd soda brands in NW Florida. From what I've seen in other places we just have the oridinary stuff here. The only interesting drinks you'll find here are at beach bars and contain much alcohol. The only time I've seen odd brands was during Spring Break at Panama City Beach and they weren't for sale. They had advertising booths and gave the stuff away.

Looking for Diet Squirt in the Washington/No. Virginia/Maryland area? Any help? Several stores carry Squirt but I haven't been able to locate Diet Squirt for several years.

Davis beverage does in fact carry it. here in northern nj we are stocked by canada dry in newark and they have it in 2 liter and 20 oz. In northern pa they have ruby red squirt in 12 pack.

I'm in NE Florida and we don't get a lot of the drinks you can find in NW Florida. On my last trip to Destin I found Cheerwine, Dr Wham, Diet Dr Wham, Diet Mello Yello and Sunkist Cherry Limeade. None of which can be found in my neck of the woods.

There were also many flavors of Faygo we don't get either. And I just went to 2 grocery stores.

We do, however, get 2 liters and 12 packs of Squirt. No diet or flavor extensions.

Squirt reg/diet are also available from Pepsi Bottling Ventures in Central and Southern Delaware (south of Middletown).

Regular and Diet Squirt are available in Punxsutawney, PA. I saw them tonight when I was getting diet soda-pops. I am pretty sure Ruby Red Squirt is here too, but I haven't really paid attention to Squirt since the mid-1990s. I know Ruby Red was here before; I will check another store and edit this post.

Squirt was bottled by our Coca-Cola until ~1998. Now there seems to be a "third" bottler who takes care of Squirt, Sunkist, RC, 7Up, A&W, the Diet Rites, etc.

I know Polar Beverages from Worcester, Massachusetts bottles Squirt. The only place I have actually seen it for sale in Eastern Mass. is at Johnnie's Foodmaster locations. The one near my house carries only regular Squirt in 2 liter bottles and 12 packs of cans.
