Diet Ski is great and is widely available in stores throughout Green and Taylor Counties. Does anyone know if the old Double Dry ginger ale is still being bottled and distributed ANYWHERE?

most of your SKI sodas are going to be founddown near greensburg and campbellsville and columbia Basically this general area around here because it was created as the local drink. i have seen both SKI and DOUBLE COLA(when it was still being made ) up around the radcliff and e-town area,but it was very scarce up there. only a few certain stores carried it. there is a shell store right at highway 220(Rineyville-big springs road) and 447(wilson road) that i know carries the SKI because i would buy two or three of them before i continued on my trucking runs.
boy it sure is a great tasting soda pop! that's for sure!

I was informed at CVS in Cville that it was very difficult for them to get the Ski product in their store and they might have to quit stocking it. I don't think the Coca-Cola people want to stock it much...too much competition locally. Maybe if we called them and begged for it in other locations, it would help. My fear is that they will quit stocking it anywhere!

Diet Ski is the ONLY diet drink that I have ever had that don't leave an after taste in your mouth.
Also they(ALL soda companies) said they would not jack the price on diet drinks as they wanted people to eat & drink healthy...Guess what...Diet prices went right along with the rest..Diet ski has been almost 5.00 a (TWELVE) pack...double what it was.Last week they finally brought the price on diet ski's at Wal-Mart to 3.59 a 12 pack & the shelves were empty over night.They don't even make the diet ski's in 24 pack.
Why would Coke not make their most popular diet drink available.
My family lives in Nashville,I buy their diet skis for them.They don't get them either.
How dumb of the Coke company.
Buy something & then don't make it available.Diet Cokes are plain nasty.

Double D & withdrawl,
Double Cola (in cans) is available online at www.double-cola.com & www.favoritesof.com . Ski is also available from those sites (also in cans), and is advertised in glass bottles at retrosoda.com .

If you have a Cost Plus World Market nearby, Double Cola is also supposed to be available in glass in a special 12-pack "Nostalgia" package, along with three other drinks (I think Suncrest, Frostie, & Bubble-Up). 3 bottles each.

I have seen diet ski in Hodgenville, KY at Houchen's, and have seen both diet and caf-free in many places in Albany, KY.

Supposedly, when the coke distributor took over greensburg's distribution area, they didn't want to distribute double cola as it was a direct competitor. But ski was so much more popular than mellow yellow, they continued to distribute it, but in some markets better than others.

If you live in a place served by RC-Evansville (Tri-City Canning), you are lucky as they still distribute both ski and double cola. I guess they don't care if a bottle of Double sells instead of RC because the money still comes to them. Too bad the coke guys don't see it that way.

I believe that Double Dry is no more. It didn't become Ale-8-One, though. That is a totally different beverage.

Nothing could taste worst then diet ski. I used the grossest analogy I could come up with. If you didnt laugh at that comment, then it's very sad. It's just an opinion. Think of it this way, one less diet ski consumer leaves more diet ski for you!! So drink up...
