Looking for blood orange soda (in which I reveal my first pet peeve)

bloodorangeAnyone know where to get this? Or another brand of blood-orange soda? 

Please don't say that such and such a place is likely to have it, or that we might try looking for it somewhere. Know that they have it.

Ah, I've revealed a pet peeve. There will be more.


Thanks, I confirmed that Trader Joe's has it, under the own brand, and so does Whole Foods.

Wegmans probably has it.....ahahahahahaha.

Or maybe you can find it at Grauls.....ahahahahahahaaa....

I haven't bought it in a while, but I have found the Archer Farms brand, ala target and Trader Joe's has been known to carry it as well. Both in large glass bottles.

thank you!

Whole Foods has 365 brand Italian sodas in large bottles. I've purchased the blood orange in the past.


What, you're too busy building your throne to Google it?

Safeway's delivery site has it, which is the one on Harford Rd. Given what a crappy area that is, I'm sure other tonier 'hoods would carry it, BUT I'm NOT SURE!!!!!

O Organics Blood Orange Italian Soda - 1 Liter $3.29

Carbonated Water, Organic Blood Orange Juice from Concentrate, Organic Sugar, Citric Acid, Natural Blood Orange Flavor, Black Carrot Juice (for Color), Natural Orange Flavor.

Now, if it pleases you, I have to get back to feeding your iguana and then I have to pick up Erik's cataract drops.

I got a voice mail l from some sweet-sounding lady who needed it for a recipe, the kind of call I probably will probably delete when I get all jaded. I called her back and she was so grateful.

Anyone know where to find blood orange juice (not soda)?

Try Ceriello's.

That specific brand's (San Pellegrino) blood orange juice is banned in the USA...So everyone please tread carefully when publicly posting where to find it.

Orangina used to sell blood orange soda in Europe, but I think they discontinued it several years ago- which is a shame, because it was damn good!

It's probably because of the article featuring blood orange soda recipes in the Supplement yesterday

All Safeways carry it. It costs $2.99. It's O Organics Blood Orange Italian Soda as Billy references above. I buy it all the time, but I get the Cranberry Acai and Pomengranate flavors. I frequent the Safeway in Owings Mills and see if often. Sometimes it's on sale 2 for $5.

trader joes has blood orange soda in a litre.

For Blood Orange Juice, you can get it on Amazon... it's called Italian Volcano Orange Juice. My lovely wife considers it an essential ingredient in her Pomegranate / Blood Orange Cosmo.

hey owl meat, lay off the harford rd safeway and figure out where it is before saying its a "crappy" area, thats between mayfield and lauraville and hamilton, right next to the chameleon cafe, chef mac's AND koco's so i wouldnt say its a "crappy" area.
id say youre a crappy area :p

I always felt less safe in that area than downtown, hence my feelings.The area that I mean is broader than the little suburban enclave surrounded by mean streets and ghetto beats. I hated being there; felt trapped and alienated.

A supermarket that doesn't have fresh ginger or shallots, but has 36 different kinds of barbeque corn chips? Sure, sociological analysis of an area by supermarket inventory is a new field, but it's more promising than neighborhood phrenology.

It makes me angry that THAT is the central delivery source for their delivery service and not, say, Canton.

Um... I've bought fresh ginger and shallots at the Harford Road Safeway. Several times. You may be confusing it with the Family Dollar up the street. And I have to add that if you think THAT is a crappy area, you have probably seen less of Baltimore than I would have imagined.

Lindsey left out Red Canoe, one of the Best Places Ever in Baltimore (just ask Richard Gorelick). Also, the Tuesday Farmer's Market that takes place right next to the Safeway. And Zeke's. Etc.

AND if, per your suggestion, we're expanding the area beyond the "little suburban enclave," than I guess we'd have to include the Hamilton Tavern. And Lake Montebello. And Herring Run Park. And Clementine. And etc, again.

Also, take a look at this map. If you really feel safer downtown than in the Greater Lauraville area, you are either misinformed, delusional, or afraid of trees. (A note - the shooting reported on 10/3/10 involving a school officer has mistakenly been placed in the neighborhood. It actually took place in the 2000 block of Harford Road, which is, am I'm sure you're aware, much closer to the safety of downtown -

Your post is Fail.

My link is also Fail. So it's a fail-fail situation.

Regarding safety of neighborhoods, we (I own Clementine along with my partner) haven't had any bad things happen to ANY of our guests when they arrive or leave our place. Not a single time. I cannot honestly say that about lots of other places I've worked that were more in the center of the city. A cop that often comes in for breakfast has seconded that notion and his territory rotates every six weeks from neighborhood to neighborhood so I think he has the skinny on safety. Just sayin'.

In response to Lou's comment, I was just wondering why "(San Pellegrino) blood orange juice is banned in the US". And does anyone know if the Trader Joe's own brand that Richard mentions tastes very similar to San Pellegrino?
