When it comes to classic holiday drinks, is there a shortage across New York on this all time fan favorite?

Canada Dry Cranberry Ginger Ale Shortage?

No matter the store, gas station, convenience store, or shop we've stumbled into, we can not find Canada Dry Cranberry Ginger Ale. Seriously, where is it? It seemed most stores had bottles as early as October. Once November hit across Central New York, this author hasn't been able to find one single bottle. Where are you Christmas? Why can't I find you?

For Those That Don't Know

The Canada Dry brand itself has a long history dating back to the early 20th century. Canada Dry Cranberry Ginger Ale is a seasonal variation of the classic Canada Dry Ginger Ale that is released during the holiday season. It is known for its festive flavor profile that combines the crisp, refreshing taste of ginger ale with the tartness of cranberry.

Sure, There May Be Other Drinks

Of course you can find Schweppes version, but it isn't remotely in the same universe as Canada Dry. It's like comparing a grain of sand to the planet Jupiter.

Where Is This Classic Holiday Favorite?

Seriously, have you found it on Central New York store shelves? If so, where? Also, do you have photo evidence to send on our station app?
