Looking for a Pop/Soda Named Wink

estufarian | Jul 14, 201101:44 PM     57

Can anybody help slake my thirst for information on the possible whereabouts of a pop/soda/soft drink branded as “Wink”?

In Canada, this was last marketed as CPlus Wink, although it may exist in both North & South Carolina as ‘Canada Dry Wink’ – the corporate umbrella is Dr. Pepper, but their 1-800 number leads to perhaps the least helpful customer service department I’ve ever encountered.
“We’re NOT ALLOWED (my caps) to tell you where you can get Wink. Go into your local grocery store and ask them to order it”! (and by the way there are no supervisors available right now).

I’ve posted on this search several times (in Canada e.g.
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/100674 ), and along the way got various feedback (several years old now) that the Carolinas were the last bulwark of supply.

I will be visiting NC (and bits of Virginia) in about a month, arriving/departing from Charlotte and passing through Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill – and probably Lexington. But this post is strictly on Wink.

Has anybody seen this product – as much detail as possible please (e.g. if a chain of grocery stores I can also check other outlets)?

My most recent search found a Wikipedia Wink page which cited my own Chowhound posts as links – so if I’m the expert-of-record, please join my team of Chowhound Investigative Assistants and help me track down this elusive product (cans and/or bottles).

Thanks all – expect a separate post to narrow down my dining options – I’m still researching.
