Goodbye Honest Tea, Hello Bottle Green

Regular readers will know of my fondness for Honest Tea iced tea, and of my difficulties with finding a local supply.

I’m sad to report that it looks like Shoppers Drug Mart, the only local supplier of Honest Tea here in Charlottetown, has given up the ghost, as shelf space previously dedicated to Honest Tea has been given over to Bottle Green, a link of lightly-carbonated fruit drinks from the Mississauga-based Canadian licensee of the U.K. softdrink maker.

I’m drinking a “Cranberry & Orange Pressé” as I write. It’s certainly a cut above the common soda, but it is, alas, no Honest Tea. I purchased the entire fleet of flavours tonight, and I’ll report back once I’ve had time to sample them.

Lovely bottles…I assume they’re returnable?

If not, I’d stock up before they are banned.
