    Just came back from my vacation in Myrtle Beach SC, and here is my
    report on Vault:

    I first spotted it in South Carolina. It was in a very cool 20oz bottle.

    To me Vault tasted something like this:
    70% Surge
    20% Sprite
    10% Mello Yello
    It had a very unique taste and I think every citrus fan should try it.

    At Myrtle beach Vault was in all the convience stores. And there was some pretty cool promotions for it (In the convience stores). All the Coke machines had a citrus soda. And by percentages they went like this: 75% of the Machines had Mello Yello, and 25% had Vault .

    The were no 12 can packs of Vault on sale...yet. And all the Coke fountains still had Mello Yello. So your best bet on getting Vault right now is by going to any convience store.

    Overall Vault tasted very good. I hope it makes it. It's time for Dew to get some competition.

    P.S. For Vault travelers, I found no Vault in Southern or Northern Virgina. I think it's only in the Roanoke area. Also, the North Carolina strip on I95 is not Consolidated Territory and it did not have Vault (The Wilson,NC area) It's all over the rest North and South Carolina.

    Do you know anything about where it is in Tennessee? My family is going down to Nashville next week, and I'm gonna send some money with them so they can bring me some back. I just hope they will be able to find it. I don't know where to tell them to look.

    No Vault in the Mobile, AL area. That's wierd, it's Consolidated Coke territory and it should have it. I know it's in the Huntsville area(Northern Alabama).Mississippi wouldn't have it. It isn't a test state. South Carolina/Michigan is the best place to find Vault, I think.

    If Huntsville Alabama has it, Elizabethtown, KY should have it too since they buy cans from Big Springs, in Huntsville. If anyone is from Kentucky they should check E-town to see if it has been spotted. That was the most reliable place for me to pick up all the Mello Yello flavors when they were out.

    Remember, this is in TEST marketing. Coke will determine where they want to test Vault, and where they do not. Representative sample markets will be selected. Typical bottling contract patterns are not relevant here...
