Dr. Pepper In Panama City

I have been searching for Dr. Pepper in Panama since I heard that it was in Panama City. I originally heard that El Rey carried it, but I have looked in two El Rey stores in PC and neither had it. Today I received an email with the names of the stores that do carry it. Here is the email.

Dr. Pepper is sold here in the Capital at FOOD MART for $2.95 6/pk 12oz can from the USA. Food Mart as two stores, one on Via Brasil down from Price Mart, their telephone number is 214-7039 and the other store is located on Tumba Muerto (Via Ricardo Alfaro) in the Plaza Mirage and their telephone number is 236-9164.

Now that I know where it is, I will stock up on my next trip to Panama City.

Thank you to the individual that sent me the email.

  1. Hi Don Ray,
    The Shopping Diva here – I know that in my travels throughout David, I have seen Dr. Pepper. When & where, I can’t recall, but I have seen it. But now, that I know what you’re looking for, I’ll keep my eyes peeled! And none of that nasty “Diet” stuff, either – am I right?

  2. Great – now I’ve got the jingle for Dr. Pepper running through my head. “Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper, too!” Thanks alot!!!!

  3. Actually, I prefer diet (always watching my figure), but for Dr. Pepper, I will take whatever I can get.

    Better a Dr. Pepper jingle than than a jingle for Camel’s cigarettes or some such thing.

  4. Whats up with Cokes dominance in central America? It was almost impossible to find Pepsi products in Costa Rica?

  5. Can’t speak for Costa Rica, but Pepsi seems to do well in Panama.

    I made a trip to Peru last year and the big drink there is Inca Kola. It completely dominates the Peruvian market. It was so dominant that Coke could not compete and finally bought the company. If you drink Inca Kola now you are drinking a Coke product.

  6. I actually liked Inca Kola. I would buy it here in David, if it was here. I doubt that it had Cocaine in it. Seems like there are laws about. You can just name drinks Cocaine. Do you think the new “Cocaine” canned drink is going to be pulled from the market? There is sure a firestorm brewing about the name.

  7. I still haven’t figured out why people will pay for Red Bull… a can half the size of a 12oz can and 5 times as much $? Pay MORE get LESS, wonderful concept, what is this stuff like liquid gold?

  8. Like P.T. Barnum is quoted as saying, “There is a sucker born every minute”.

    I agree with the statement even though Barnum never really said it.

  9. Were you able to find Dr. Pepper at that store? Just moved here from the states and I have been DYING for some Dr. Pepper.
    Thanks
