Moderators' Note:

Thoughtful concerns have been raised about this thread....

After due consideration, we've decided that in the interest of a) not creating an opportunity for post-padding -- intentional or not -- (barred by FT Rule 14); and b) having a thread that is not unintentionally dominated by a small number of people (giving space for other voices), going forward there will be a two-post-per 24 hours rule in place. We hope that this will give more diverse voices the opportunity to chime in.

We'll be merging or deleting posts that don't follow this rule.

Thanks for you understanding.

I didn't spill a drink, but did drop a glass jar for recycling, causing it to shatter.

It is hit or miss on whether I'll find it at the grocery store. They usually do not have the 12-pack cans. They usually do have the 2 liter bottles.

Yesterday they had neither.

Boggie dog has posted elsewhere that fresca couldn’t be produced during pandemic because certain ingredients weren’t available. So all existing inventory in stores is from pre-April productions. Eek. We got our 4 cases at Target. A very gross target in sf where social distancing needs to be the permanent rule :-)

Apparently that's incorrect. They claim they never stopped making it but it appears that there was an aluminum can shortage due to people buying beer in quarantine, and the Coca Cola Co limited production of other soft drinks to ensure that Coke was still everywhere.

But I haven't seen Fresca at my local grocery store in a few weeks.
