    I was happy and sad at the same time. Sad, because I saw Jones Energy Drink in Costco, that part did not make me sad, I was glad to see that company is still growing. But their price was at $14 per case (that is with a $4 instant savings), but even at $18, thats crazy for an 24 pack. Here is my thinking, they are shipping direct. Thats the only thing that made me sad. Playing for both the supplier and distributor, I can see both sides. The distributor, who works hard to make a profit and sell these drinks, is now drasticaly undercut by the supplier, and any store can go and stock up for what is probably cheaper than the distributors cost. The supplier side, Jones says they have the right to sell to who they want, and this is why they have now became profitable. Cutting out the middle man in many things. I dont know what they sell their drinks to distributors for, or if this is shipped direct. But a $14 per case energy drink, I just hate to see a product that can sell, price its self for a closeout price.
    The HAPPY SIDE, which actually does the same thing as Jones I guess, so maybe I am just hypocritical. Is I found BOYLANS at Costco. Its a 15 pack mix box (5 Root Beer, 5 Orange and Cream, and 5 Black Cherry), and it was only like $8...thats a great deal.

    The Costco of my area doesn't have them... of course...

    One question... does Costco U.S.A. sells Kirkland Signature Soda like here in Mex?. Once my parents bought a 2-liter six pack of Kirkland Signature Diet Cola and they liked it... BTW, is Costco store brand but is made by Cott.

    Ron, leave it to the Club Stores to squeeze the margin out of the category. Sounds like the water category 6 years ago. I can still remember when stores would pay $12.00 for a case of NAYA or Avalon Water. Now you can buy 4 cases for $12.

    So that means that Kirkland soda is also available in U.S.

    A little off this topic,

    Costco has their Kirkland brand on Goetz Jelly Bellies.

    I am pretty sure Kirkland is Costco only.
