During a trip to Indy this weekend, I purchased a drink I just found out about a week ago- Diet Big Red.

At the same time I learned about Diet Big Red, I found out about Barq's diet red creme soda. I always loved the regular red creme soda as a kid, I'd always get it when we visited Indy for the 500.

I found the Diet Big Red at Kroger's on Crawfordsville Rd, but I was unable to find Diet Barq's red creme soda at that Kroger, the Marsh also on Crawfordsville, or the Marsh on Rockville rd.

Can anyone point me towards a store in the Indy area or NW Indiana that does carry the drink? I will be back in Indy next weekend, staying on the North side of town so if anyone can point me in the right direction I would LOVE to pick some up.

The only production facility that does Diet Barq's Red Cream is CCE Cincinnati. I have only seen it in Cincinnati or Dayton, OH.

Thanks for the info Big Rich... I pass through Dayton on my way to Columbus, is there something close to 70 I could hit up on my next trip? I seem to remember a Meijer's right by the highway, any idea of Meijer's carries it?

You could also call the CCE branch and see where they've delivered it to recently.

I know Jungle Jim's in Fairfield carries it - I'd highly recommend going there.

Jungle Jim's International Market - Six Acres of Food Under One Roof - 5440 Dixie Hwy., Fairfield, OH 45014 (http://www.junglejims.com/)

Here is just a sampling of what they sell, soda-wise.

They also have a lot of international foods, separated by country. Each country section has a small selection of sodas and other beverages. The British section is huge.

Meijer's in Englewood has it. Englewood is on Dayton's west side.

Thanks to both of you... Jungle Jim's looks awesome, I am surprised I hadn't heard of it before.

I will definitely stop in Dayton next time I am driving over to Columbus to check out Meijers.

thanks again!
