I'm on the Hunt for Mello Yello

We just got back from our trip to Virginia.
On the way down we stopped at a rest area in Maryland and were pleasantly surprised to see them serving Mello Yello.

We used to have Mello Yello in my area (NY) years ago but not anymore. My kids first tried it last year when we were in DisneyWorld and loved it !

We bought 2 12-packs in a Food Lion in Virgina and figured we'd pick up more on the way home in Marlyand or Delaware. We checked 2 Super Walmarts, 1 Giant and 3 Food Lions on the way home and none of them had Mello Yello in stock. All said they carried it but were out.

Do you have Mello Yello in your area ?
If anyone in NY, NJ, CT, MA or NH has Mello Yello in their area let me know 'cause we're running low !

http://www.cocacola.com

Mello Yello is made by the Coca Cola company. You should be able to find out where it is available on their site.

I gave up, it's all flash. Maybe you will have better luck actually finding information there.

$20 for a 12 pack? That site has a good scam going.

I tried sodafinder and coca cola site.
$20 for a $12-pack is robbery and coca cola site doesn't list where it's available.

No offense but Maine is too far.
I have an uncle that lives on the border of MA and NH.

I've seen that site before. I was looking for Sprite Ice that I found up in a Canada a couple years ago, and they want $175 for a 12-pack! Yikes!!!

EDIT: Now it's up to $180!

I'm in South Carolina, and I can't remember ever not having Mello Yello readily available. I prefer Mountain Dew, but I'll switch it up and get the tangier Mello Yello every once in a while.

I don't remember ever seeing it here in MA anytime within the past few years. I'm very much enjoying Vault as an alternative to Mt. Dew.

They call me Mellow Yellow.
They call me Mellow Yellow,
Quite rightly.
They call me Mellow Yellow.


Gotta love those vacations when you find a long lost junk food you used to love.

Same here and every once in a blue moon I'll get a Sun Drop for a trip down memory lane.

What does this Mello Yello taste like? I'm assuming it's a lemon lime thang....
