    I haven't seen any for three weeks now, granted this only covers three shops including two at the same store.

    I have noticed Walmart especially has been out of stock. Ask your local grocery store manager to order some in for you if possible. Sobeys did this for me when I was looking for a Canada Dry product (which surprisingly is distributed by Coke).

    I drink the PC brand of caffeine free cola, find it has less sodium (more refreshing than Diet Coke) and is usually in stock at Fortinos. Plus it doesn't disappear (with others drinking it) when its in the fridge

    Sobeys Ancaster has Coke Zero caffeine-free vanilla or cherry cases on shelves. Not many cases, but the stock is there.

    Shoppers Mapleview Centre (Burlington ON) Saw a few caffeine Free Diet Coke and Coke Zero Sugar cases. Do not recall seeing caffeine-free regular coke (just regular coke with fructose-sucrose).

    My local Shoppers had one case of Caffeine-free Diet Coke and one case of caffeine free Coke Zero. Try looking at independent grocers or Rexalls/Shoppers that aren't big. You never know when you come across a find!

    Just found these 2L bottles of caffeine free Coke and Pepsi on Longos.com for online orders! https://www.longos.com/search/caffei...=caffeine-free
    You see the cases of caffeine-free Diet Coke are out of stock.

    I have never seen them at the Ancaster store.

    Main West Fortinos in Hamilton has lots of the caffeine-free Coke Zero cases. Think it's because there's a university nearby and lots of other families with schoolkids in the area. 2L bottles too.

    Longos.com is still showing 2L bottles of Caffeine-free Diet Coke online. I have not seen them in the Ancaster store at all.

    https://www.longos.com/search/caffei...affeine%20free

    Voila.ca has the store brand Compliments 12 can case of caffeine-free soda
    https://voila.ca/products/search?q=caffeine%20free

    *Dec. 11 update-my local Shoppers in Ancaster (smaller one) has two Coke caffeine-free cases in the gold boxes. I believe the Coke Zero cases (red/black) were also caffeine-free. Will double-check when I return a beverage tomorrow for a refund.

    Caffeine-free Coke Zero Sugar 12packs are in certain Shoppers, Food Basics and other stores (Fortinos).

    Hmm...DH's favorite flavor of Lays PC seems to have evaporated from the stores we shop, and we've been searching for about a month. We finally saw a Lays fellow restocking the shelf at Freshco and DH asked him whether the flavor had been discontinued. He said, "no. But we're having production problems due to unreliable supplies. Everything will be back to normal soon but we might be short of some things for a while." I think this is going to happen a lot with quite a few products.

    Two weeks ago Bro was slow to realize why any Loblaw affliated store was low on Lays products-pricing dispute. ONce I told him, he understood. But other stores tend to have stock.

    Still seeing a few cases of Caffeine-free Zero Sugar Coke in area stores. Bigger Shoppers stores tend to have more variety in their Coke cases. I have to ask friend if we could check the Main St W Fortinos as the store has a lot more pop varieties than my local Fortinos does.

    @Ciel I had such a hard time finding diet coke or coke zero caffeine free that I switched to Our Compliments and PC Brand diet cola in the bottles. Both have less salt (which explains why I always wanted more diet coke while drinking it) and price wise .99 cents to $1.29 for a large bottle and I'm sold. While I do miss cans, I find regular diet coke keeps me up at night.

    I'm in Brampton, they have them at Walmart.

    In addition to the Frito-Lays disputes, aluminium prices had increased by 50% so it's just hard to even get the metal for the cans. Plus all the people drinking beers at home instead of getting drafts at the bar.

    Frito-Lays have been absorbing the cost by reducing the variety of products and distributing it across all their products. Instead of increasing the price of a can by 30 cents, they opt for increasing everything including chips by 10 cents each. I heard Loblaw group isn't keen on this.

    Grocery is a cents-game. They only make about 3% profit. I often forget how difficult it is to have so many products under one roof.
