    For better or worse, I'm moving to Michigan next week -- just across the bridge, actually, and am wondering what I'll be able to find outside of the normal, national Coke/Pepsi-type products. What are some other lines I can find up there?

    I figure I can find Vernors and Faygo, since they have their roots in Detroit (or so my memory says) and Vernors is on my top-10 list. How about these ones?

    Pibb XTRA
    Mello Yello Afterglow & Melon
    Mr. Green
    Jolt
    Cheerwine
    others?

    Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.
    I like new, weird colas

    You will find a big 10 cent deposit on everything.

    Pibb Xtra - maybe in the Western part of the state, but forget it in Detroit (Dr Pepper = Coke).

    MY Afterglow and Melon - again, No.

    Mr. Green - maybe, not sure on that one.

    Jolt - probably

    Cheerwine - No

    I think you can get some Monarch stuff there, and being in the South, you don't see much Squirt, but you'll see a lot more of it. Truth is, the arrangement is a little different there, but product-wise, I wouldn't really say there's anything special being offered.

    i live in detroit.

    coke has standards, with dr p. and squirt.

    7up has nothing special.

    pepsi has vernors and there hasn't been glass in years.

    no one up here knows what cheerwine is

    jolt's plentiful, as long as you look in the right areas.

    crush is everywhere

    there's faygo in 16oz glass
    it's easy to get all 55 flavors of faygo.

    ask me some more questions, i know the area really well (except for the upper peninsula).

    what city are you living in? or are you living in windsor?

    if you're in windsor, ontario, then you can probably find sprite ice, more flavors of crush (although in michigan, in glass alone, there's orange, strawb, grape, tropical fruit, pineapple, peach and cherry)

    hey "RunWithDaLilGuy". Does Intrastate Bottling sell the Crush in cans or just the 16 oz glass?

    I have a source for Vernors in long neck bottles. They've been spotted in various So. Cal grocery stores as of late!

    terry - ha! not in michigan.

    also, instrastate sells crush in all sizes

    6pk/12pk cans
    12oz glass
    16oz glass (They make)
    20oz bottle
    possibly half liters...
    and they sell in 2-Liters, they make the tropical and pineapple themselves.

    they also sell some monarch stuff like dad's.

    I had a Vernor's longneck the other day.. I brought it back from my road trip through the Eastern Great Lakes/South this summer. I found it at a high-brow grocery store in Akron OH, as well as Jungle Jim's in Fairfield OH. All of it was bottled by A&W Bottling in Everett WA. Code is EV.

    That would be the bottler in question. Which is my next project, to get together a list of who runs what in glass and where...here's what we know so far:

    These are ones we've confirmed still run glass:

    West Jefferson DP -> DP/Dew/RC/7up/Nehi/Crush/Cheerwine

    Dublin DP -> Self explanitory

    Middlesboro, KY -> Coke runs Mello Yello, Coke, etc.. The pepsi guy there has Dr Pepper and presumably most pepsi products in 10 oz.

    Dr Pepper of Dallas -> Sunkist, A&W, RC

    A&W of Everett WA -> Vernors (and I assume the products they sell, will confirm soon)

    All 3 major bottling systems have plants who run Canada Dry/Schweppes in 10 oz glass as well. Coke's plant in MR (Marietta GA), unsure of Pepsi's.
