View Full Version : West Jefferson Dr. Pepper bottling - Online retailers??
06-28-2013, 02:06 PM
I am on a desperate hunt for any online retailers selling the bottled sodas that West Jefferson Dr. Pepper bottling plant in North Carolina bottles. I am specifically looking for the Orange Crush. They dont ship to just anywhere so I need a place I can order from since I live way the heck up here in Minneapolis, MN.
Wikipedias page states:
"The company does not ship outside its contracted territory, however several Web sites sell the product at a premium price."
I am willing to pay this premium.
Thanks in advance!

Have you tried the Old 52 General Store in west MN? I don't know where their bottled OC comes from, so you'd have to ask.

You might try checking with this place, too:

looks like old 52 gets the same HFCS version as all the local grocery stores, I contacted the other place litsed above and left a message.
Any other suggestions?

I've driven to WJ on a few occasions to buy glass-bottled drinks directly from their warehouse. Some drinks are harder to get than others. Their best-sellers (Mountain Dew, Cheerwine, Dr Pepper, RC Cola) are almost always available. With other drinks, it's a matter of what they've bottled recently and what they can sell to you. On one occasion when I was there, for example, they had cases of NuGrape, on another, they had 7-Up, and on another they had Red Rock Cola. The folks there have been helpful to me, so you might want to contact them directly and see if they have any suggestions:
I was wanting to buy Diet Sundrop from them. They don't have distribution rights to Sundrop in Ashe County, so they can't sell it. They did tell me to check with Sundrop Bottling of Concord, and I was able to get a case of it that way. Good luck!

I can suggest a number of orange sodas with real sugar, but finding Crush with real sugar may be a challenge. One suggestion would be to check any type of Hispanic/Mexican/South American/international grocery stores. They sell Crush down there, and I have found glass bottles as well as 2 liters.
http://soda-emporium.com/ is a good site to go to for other sodas with real sugar. I bought from this seller when he was on ebay, no problems at all.
If you ever travel south of the Twin Cities, there is a Cracker Barrel restaurant in Lakeville (I-35, exit #85). They should have Nesbitt's orange soda if you wanted to give that a try. They also usually have NuGrape and a few other sugar sodas.

I saw Heritage Dr Pepper a few weeks ago at a supermarket in Berkeley, CA so I was wondering if it was coming back nationwide or just in select areas. I didn't buy a 12 pack there for $5.99+ tax and CRV thinking I'd find it cheaper where I live (Central CA coast). I have yet to see it anywhere else so now I am wishing I would have just bought it there. By the way Dr Pepper is done by Pepsi in the Bay Area and by Coke where I live.
