Q:

Dear omniscient ones, since i've arrived at BYU i haven't been able to find my favorite drink (cactus cooler) anywhere, do you know anywhere i can get it?

- spartacus

A: Dear spartacus:

Cactus Cooler isn't sold in Utah because it's a "regional brand" and Utah is too far north to be part of the region. It's not even mentioned on the current version of Dr Pepper/7Up website. However, thanks to Google, you can see it referenced at

http://www.dpsu.com/brands_regional.html

though you can't obtain any information about it. And there are quite a few places you can buy it online. At about $1 per can plus shipping, it ain't cheap, but it at least satisfies the craving.
