    Default Double Cola products in Kentucy or Tennessee

    Hello everyone. This site is a virtual wealth of soft drink information. With that in mind, maybe some of you can help me out.

    Later this summer I'm driving from Cincinnati OH to Louisville KY via I-71, then down to Nashville TN via I-65, and finally to Memphis TN via I-40. Is there anywhere along my route I can buy Double Cola products? I'm primarily interested in Double Cola, Diet Double Cola, and the various Ski formulations, not so much the Jumbo flavors, though I'm sure those are good as well. I'm willing to go a few miles from the interstates if necessary. Also, I'll be spending a few days in both Memphis and Nashville. Any helpful info will be much appreciated!

    Frontier Distributing in Nashville distributes Double Cola and Ski in the surrounding counties. You can find it in Nashville but it's usually sold as a discount brand and major chains rarely carry it.

    If you go to Frontier, I believe they still sell directly to the public.

    Do a search on this site for "Frontier Distributing" and you can find one of my earlier posts with more information about other distributors.

    Thanks, Cheer-wined. I went to Frontier's website, on which they helpfully list the soft drinks they distribute. I sent them an email asking about specific stores that carry the stuff. Hopefully they'll respond, but if you or anyone else know of any specific retailers that carry the stuff, please post them.

    Hmm, major chains? Kroger definitely counts as one. Wonder if any discount chains, such as Save-A-Lot, would carry Double Cola in Nashville.

    When I was in Tennessee a couple of years ago the only stores I could find Double Cola products in was Food Lyon. At the other major grocery store chain (I forgot the name) no one even knew what Double Cola was. Funny this was in Chattanooga and I had just passed a billboard advertising Double Cola as a home town drink.

    When I was in Chattanooga, I found it at Bi-Lo and Food Lion. It was very under-represented in Food Lion, though.

    In the one city Bi-Lo I went into, they had a bunch of Jumbo as well.

    Sad--people not knowing about Double Cola in the town of its birth.

    Yeah, most likely Food Lion is one of the few sizable chains to carry it--hopefully they do around Nashville!

    When you say underrepresented, are you referring to shelf space or sizes available for purchase? I know when you could still find it in Cincinnati, it was only in 2 liter bottles at a few supermarkets, or 20 ounce bottles at scattered convenience stores. I'm hoping to at least find some 6 packs or 12 packs, and not have to search every convenience store in central Tennessee!

    I would consider finding Jumbo flavors a bonus. If I can get Double Cola, Diet Double Cola, and Ski, I'll be happy.

    Shelf space - I'm taking 2 facing each on two shelves for the 2 liters.

    At the new Bi-Lo in Red Bank, I did find Double Cola, Ski, Cherry Ski, and Diet Ski in fridge pack form. They had an insanely huge soda aisle. And Coke United had all eight varieties of Dr Pepper when I was in the store last October.

    In 2005, I stopped at a Bi-Lo that was right off of I-24 in Chattanooga, and they had a cooler full of 20oz Jumbo.

    You may have to check a few grocery stores to find Double Cola.. or email/call the distributor and ask who they deliver to. The time I saw it in the Nashville area was at a c-store - they had 10oz glass bottles and 20oz PET at a Raceway gas station in Murfreesboro.

    They are really nice at Double Cola and would be happy to give you any type of information to find it in your area.

    Wink Double Cola in Nashville

    Double Cola is available at almost any grocery store in Nashville and in nearby small towns. Grocers such as Kroger, IGA, Publix, H.G. Hill, and many gas stations carry Ski, Diet Ski, and Double Cola. You could probably call ahead to stores along your route.
