    they don't normally do it.
    but it never hurts to ask.

    i managed to get the leeming iga to get in 2l bottles of UK dr pepper for a while simply by asking.

    they've stopped that now though. maybe they weren't selling enough. they still have cans though and the occasional bottles from the netherlands.

    hating reading through this thread and finding out about all the cheap places to get dr pepper in melbourne and perth :(

    cheapest i can find per can in adelaide is $3 in blackebys or the new james place convenience store.

    blackebys and james place convenience store also sell slabs of 12 for $24 (not great value). these are the american ones.

    I got a 6 pack of 600ml bottles at a supermarket in Zermatt for $2. I'm guessing the lady scanned a bottle's individual barcode rather than the one on the plastic wrapping. :leet:

    aren't they still sold in all of the shops over there anyway?
    unlike here where they're only sold in a few spots.

    Not quite, they are still imported mostly from the uk or usa, have never been produced in nz. Some of the larger supermarkets are getting large stocks of the cans now so you see more around.

    USA Foods has another Dr Pepper special.

    2 Slabs (48 Cans) for $40 + about $11 postage.

    So that's about $1.15 a can.
