    That's bad news for me. I'm diabetic and I only like one flavor of Safeway brand diet soda, Diet grapefruit, and it's cheap, usually about $2.50 a 12 pack. I usually only drink it at night before I go to bed and have a can open for when I wake up and my mouth is dry.

    A carbonated drink cuts the thirst better than anything else and also helps with occasional heartburn or acid reflux. I'll have to go to the store today and stock up on it.

    Here's hoping Safeway's contract with the soda company keeps them stocking your favorite.

    Well I couldn’t get a set of spark plug wires for a 74 Chevy. Not even generic.

    I'm told many local craft breweries had to skip their seasonal beers to focus on their core line due to a shortage of cans and bottles. Even a lot of the macro brewers didn't make their summer seasonals this year.

    In my area there is a 5 cent per can/bottle return program along with other recycling. Since the CHINA virus hit, the local supermarkets, (Fareway included) stopped taking the cans back.
    If you calculate each household, (even just in my neighborhood, roughly 200 homes) with 3 months worth of cans, imagine that city or community wide.
    Just recently Hy-Vee started taking them back so we were able to return a bunch.

    Let the sodas flow people.
