I was wondering, because I haven't read much about this topic.

But I'm sure it's a nationwide thing.

Have you noted in your area, that for several weeks now, flavor sodas, say,

Cherry Vanilla Coke
Vanilla Coke,
Vanilla Pepsi
Mango Pepsi
Dr Pepper Cherry
and so on.....

Have been out of stock for weeks, actually now for more than a month?

I understand, several bottlers stopped production of many flavors, since the pandemic, and that even some whole bottling plants have been closed.

My local hangout sells 20 oz. singles and can only get Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, and Sprite. Their deliveryman said the situation would not change until at least the mid to late-fall and was due to shutdowns at the plastic bottle factory. He said the situation would be similar with the 16.9 oz. six-pack bottles and the 2 liter party size bottles eventually, but not with cans, but I have not noticed a shortage yet at my Kroger. He said the imitator was doing the same thing, but I would not take any of the imitator's swill if free.

Well, now it's kinda more official, and sodas are now just part of a list.

Recent article around the web mentions shortage of aluminum cans, and other items,

I remember couple of months ago, reading about shortage of aluminum for cans, and also the carbonated ingredient for sodas.

I found the same thing yesterday, in two different stores. No Zero anything.

Oh well, back to my Southern Sweet Tea. Dentists love it. For YOU to drink! :D

Today at the commissary, very very few zero drinks left. No bread flour. Very little AP flour. “Fresh” chicken rationed, as well as a few other things. Not as much pork as usual. Seafood counter closed. So no fresh, but some frozen available.
