One of the items I always bought on my visit to the grocery store was a six pack of Diet Coke in 24 ounce plastic bottles. Since the middle of September the two grocery store chains that I usually shop at no longer offer Coke products in the 24 ounce plastic bottles. They still offer the two liter and six packs of 12 ounce plastic bottles.

Is this because of NYC Mayor Bloombergs recent ruling outlawing 24 ounce drinks in NYC? Is it nation wide or just in my local (Lincoln, Nebraska) stores? Have any of you in other parts of the country noticed this?

My guess would be that they did not sell well enough to justify the shelf space.

Man, I can't even drink 24 ounces of soda anymore. I remember as a kid, though, I could have easily. We used to go to AM/PM and get a Thristy Two Ouncer Suicide (mixed soda with at least a few ounces of each flavor).

Maybe they will carry the 16 oz size - or you may be able to get Pepsi

I will check the soda isle the next time I go to the grocery store here and see if they carry the 24 oz size 6 pack

The NYC law applies only to NYC and only to restaurants/delis/fast food places. Larger sized sodas are still available in supermarkets here.

Most of my family shops at Sam's and Costco now, but here in CA they still sell them via supermarkets and drugstores.
