Does Coca-cola still manufacture stoney ginger beer( Tangawizi if you’re Kenyan or Tanzanian) in two litre bottles? My guess is they don’t, because I’ve been to five different major super-market chains and numerous corner stores and I didn’t find any. You might be wondering what on earth was I searching for 2 litre stoney? why didn’t I buy a normal 340ml can, well I feel like typing today so I’ll tell you. I had recently bought myself a 750ml bottle of Klipdrift premium export brandy, you know to celebrate spending one year in this Zeus-forsaken town without going all Columbine on everybody, I wasn’t feeling brave enough to enjoy it straight so I wanted a good soda to mix it with. If you’re South-African you’ll know that brandy, especially Klipdrift, is usually mixed with coca-cola. But I’m not your average Copper stilled wine drinker, I find coke+brandy nauseating. I like my mixture to have a little kick.
It all started in High-School really, every Friday one person would bring alcohol to school and just to be safe we would mix it with Stoney so that when we get caught we would pretend that it’s home made cough mixture( Now that I think about it, that was one dumb ass idea). Ever since then, I have mixed all my spirits( with an exception of Vodka, which i mix with fanta Orange) with Stoney Ginger Ale, anywho, There I was excited that I was about to taste my first Brandy in three months. I went to the nearest Super Market and they told me that they don’t sell Stoney in two litre bottles, and the next one told me the same thing and the next one and the next. Needless to say I had to settle for Brandy + Coke*sigh*, I feel so South-African right now.
My advice to Coca-Cola: START MANUFACTURING STONEY IN TWO LITRE BOTTLES OR YOU’LL HAVE THE BLOOD OF A THOUSAND SPRINGS RESIDENTS ON YOUR HANDS!!!!!
