I usually describe Bawls as being more like a Sprite with a fruitier bite to it.
pdxbevman - Have you tried the Bawl's website, where they have a "store locator" page? I see a couple of locations in Portland, OR listed.

Also, Do you have any CompUSA stores in the area, they sell a lot of Bawls by the 12 pack.
As far as availability, I think it comes and goes. A couple of years ago when two local stores here in Douglas started carrying it, I went and added their locations on the Bawls website. (the Bawls website has been redone since then, and I now notice no locations listed for Wyoming. I'll have to resubmit I guess) But I notice that both locations will have it for a while, then run out and I won't see it for a long time. The last time I was in Denver, i bought a couple of 12 packs at CompUSA. I was hoping they'd have Guarnexx, the diet version but they didn't. (but I broke down and bought a tin of overpriced Bawls Mints they had at the checkout stand. Tasted okay) Then right after I get back here to Douglas I find the grocery store down the street has a stack of 24-pack cases sitting there when I walked in the door. Oh well...
