I live in tuscumbia alabama. Normally here in the south, we get the new coke products first. But I can't find vanilla coke anywhere local. I asked the coke vendor guy at walmart and he said "iv not heard anything about a vanilla coke relaunch." Where the hell is it? ":(

Do we really need so many Vanilla Coke threads?

You're in Coke Weaver territory - they're a fairly small indie that may not be getting Vanilla Coke again.

You could try contacting them at

Corinth Coca-Cola (http://www.corinthcoke.com/)

Or you could travel south into Coke United territory. Their office is in Carbon Hill, but I am almost 100% sure I saw their stuff in Hamilton.

We are the first to get everything else so I dont know what the deal is. Carbon Hill is a branch out of Birmingham and our territory goes all the way to Russelville and a little bit further. I am pretty sure that Tuscumbia is out of Florence which is Consolidated. I am not 100 percent positive though because territorial rights are screwed started around here. 5 different Coke and Pepsi Bottlers serve the area, with your Coke and Pepsi reps, and 2 Coke and 1 Pepsi companies driving from all over to handle Dr Pepper in the certain parts they have the right to it. Sorry for the lond answer but hope it helps.

I stand corrected.

I just looked at the Coke Consolidated territory map.. I didn't realize they had territory in northwestern AL. But it looks like they go down as far as the Colbert/Franklin county line (bottling franchises are mostly based on counties). I'm assuming most of the stuff in your area is out of Nashville (code NS).. or maybe even Mobile (code MB).

As posted on another thread, Consolidated is due to get it again on June 4th.

And not everyone is always in the loop about new items. Sometimes I'll even talk to the Pepsi guys I know about stuff I've read online, and they have no idea what I'm talking about.

And, for the record.. we only have 20oz in Maryland, currently. We won't get 2L and 12 packs until June 4th. Some areas (Atlanta has been mentioned, along with Texas) launched all packages at once.. even 12oz loose bottles in some markets (we haven't done those since the Sprite relaunch).

thanks for the information guide.
According to what I heard, the local bottlers plant is in Florence. I looked at the Coke Consilidation map, and my county is covered in it. Vanilla coke was listed as available product, but its not available. Another product on the list was mr.pibb, which is not sold anywhere in lauderdale or colbert counties (that i have been able to find).

I'm hoping that walmart may be getting it soon. I work at walmart so I check often. They did have a small area where the coke guy stacked 12pack boxes of "black cherry vanilla". That has been out for two days now and an empty space remains.

Sadly, many bottlers never update their websites.

is because the handle Dr Pepper in Florence. This is one of the four bottlers that come to handle Dr Pepper in and around Russelville. That highway heading to Moulton is like devided into fourths and you have a bottler out of Miss, for a fourth, Florence for a fourth, Pepsi out of Hamilton for a fourth, and and another Private Pepsi for another fourth. This is why you see so many different things around that area. Pibb is avaliable in Russelville though.

My local Chicago Jewel Food Stores now have Vanilla Coke.
My store has Vanilla Coke and I believe Vanilla Coke Zero too.

Still no Vanilla Coke or Vanilla Coke Zero here in Maine.

Well, apparently my local walmart has phased out black/cherry vanilla coke. There hasnt been any for about 5 days now. They filled its spot with sprite. Maybe vanilla coke soon? ;(

We ran out of diet black cherry vanilla months ago, and black cherry vanilla a few weeks ago. Usually we just spread out on what's next to the discontinued item until something new comes in. It's not usually the stores that discontinue the items, it's the bottling company/distributor.

You'll probably see Vanilla Coke in a week or so. I know that with us, we usually ship new items on Saturday if the store is getting a Saturday delivery

DOn't worry, I still can't find it here, and we don't have a website or press release from Coke yet, anyway.

Remember, it is up to each individual store on if they want to carry a certain flavor. In my area, the same stores that carried BCVC now have Vanilla Coke and the same stores that didn't carry BCVC don't have Vanilla Coke.

Not to toot my own horn, but I'd like to direct any discussion on Coke Zero Vanilla to my "Coke Zero Vanilla" thread a little ways down the page.

I guess I'm just disappointed that it hasn't rolled out everywhere yet.

Saw frozen Vanilla Coke in a slurpee-type machine in Royal Farms (gas/c-store chain).

We currently have vanilla coke and vanilla coke zero pretty much everywhere here. We also have it in 12 packs, 2L's, and 20 oz.'s. Those are the only sizes we have as far as I can remember. Maybe Rob the Surge Drinker will know if we have any additional sizes.

I've found some 12-pack Coke Vanilla at Wal-Mart where I live.
