    I'm really craving some, but only regular RC is for sale in my area.

    Any leads?

    Not anywhere close to you, but I know where it is sold in OKlahoma
    If what you did yesterday still looks big, you haven't done much today.

    Awhile I thought someone said West VA or KY.

    Nowhere near you, unfortunately. The companies that did distribute it are either out of business, or don't distribute it anymore. It's basically a mid-west/southern drink now, from what I can tell.

    I see. I haven't seen any since '99/'00. The same with Hires Root Beer.

    I may just buy some RC -- two liters are cheap and put cherry juice or something.

    I think the only time I've seen it in recent years were in areas served by Full Service/All-American bottling.

    Add Tri-State Canners to the Cherry RC list. AKA(Big Red/RC Evansville).

    The closest place I could think of is still 500+ miles from NYC.

    In eastern KY it's distributed by RC Bentley in Whitesburg (product is made by Tri-State as mentioned above).

    Mellow Moon of Paragould AR bottles/cans it for distribution in AR, MS, AL (maybe other states as well).

    Up until 2-3 years ago it could be bought in southern VA through RC Chicago, but that has since dried up.

    Once in a while I used to find it in the All-American territory in eastern TN, that also seems to have dried up.

    The bigger 3rd tier bottlers in the southeast - like Carolina Beverage, Choice USA, Dixie Riverside and Southeast Atlantic - don't carry it either.

    Which bottler makes it besides All-American, Tri-State and Mellow Moon - maybe Temple? Big Shot/RC? Has it completely disappeared from Chicago or did another bottler pick it up from Adamany?

    Speaking of bigger 3rd tier bottlers in the southeast RC Cola Asheville does not carry it either.

    All-American is now DPSU group, so that don't look good for Cherry RC.

    Bummer, didn't know about that! Haven't seen any changes on the cans:
