    Saw these for the first time in H'ville yesterday ... the bottles are "cute," but what horrified -- and I mean HORRIFIED -- me was the price!!! $3.99 for a freakin 4 pack! If you're math-challenged, that's a buck apiece for 16 oz. plasic bottles. That's as poor a multi-pak value as I've ever seen for any soda anywhere in a grocery store (Krogers). Just below it were FridgePaks (8 can size) of the same soda on sale for 1.99

    So take your pick, 16 oz bottles of Pepsi for a buck when you can buy 20 oz. for 99 or 1.09 at the c-store, or cans at 25 cents each in the fridgepak.

    Geez!
    I like new, weird colas

    What is with the pricing of some multipacks anyway? My store has started stocking 6-packs of Dr Pepper in those little 10 oz. glass bottles like ginger ale and tonic water usually come in. The price? $5.39! The 6-packs of ginger ale don't cost that much, so what makes the Dr Pepper so special that they have to charge such a high price for it? Maybe they're thinking they can get some sales just for novelty's sake before they put sensible prices on them.

    Yes, they're $3.98 for 12 packs of Fun Runners at Wal-Mart. I've seen Pepsi, Diet Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Sierra Mist packs like this, and 1 pack like this here in Cumberland of Dr Pepper.
