Dear LAist,

In order to properly celebrate Cinco De Mayo, we'd like to drink real Coke. You know, the kind produced with real cane sugar and bottled in glass bottles. What mom used to serve ya.

Where do you think I might be able to find a couple six packs (eight packs?) before Cinco De Mayo is over?


New To L.A.

Dear New,

We have seen Mexican Coke in lots of places around LA: Jon's, Gelson's, FoodsCo - but you never know if something is seasonal or a test or what.

SFist and Notcot are reporting that you can get cases at Costco. But does shopping at Costco say Cinco to you?

If you want to go somewhere smaller and you're over by the South Bay, check out Real Soda in Real Bottles in Torrance. And don't be surprised if you walk out with more than just one case of Coke.
