[QLD] Fever Tree Tonic Water 200ml Varieties 24 Pack $5.99 (past Best Before Date) in-Store Only @ Sam Coco's Annerley

80

In-store only. Can't find an online link. Sam Coco's has pallets of Fever Tree 200ml varieties in 24 packs for $5.99. That's cheaper than they usually go for a 4 pack. The catch? They're past the best before date. Glass bottles though. Tasted great to me.

I saw Indian Tonic Water, Mediterranean Tonic Water and Ginger Ale. There may be others.

To round out your g&t's stock up on lemons for 9c/kg while you're there.

    What was the average best before?

      All the packs I saw were from a range of 2020 months, so well over. I didn't linger long though.

    Great! Set a reminder.

    Does tonic water expire?

      I've had Schweppes tonic water in plastic bottles go manky on me well past the best before date. The bottles kinda collapsed in on themselves, the liquid discoloured and lost its fizz. Didn't dare sample the taste. I've drunk a few bottles of Fever Tree though that were 12-18ish months past bbd with no discernible difference so I didn't hesitate in picking up a slab of these for a few bucks. Might go back for different varieties soon now that my sample checked out. YMMV!

      If you don't want to take my word for it, surely a random source on the internet would suffice?:

      Sounds legit. ;)

      It's a best before date, not an expiry date.

      Carbonated drinks (especially in plastic bottles) can lose some fizz.
      Shouldn't be a problem.

        Visited again yesterday to buy more fantastic Ginger Beer. Disappointed.

        Was told they sold 3 pallets of Fever Tree in days!

        My mistake the day before, was not trying before leaving car park! I usually do that with short dated purchases, & buy more if good.

        Grabbed bananas @9c/kg
        29c green mangoes.
        Plenty of free (soft) bananas.
        And a free milk crate.

    Just a heads-up that they do atm have a half a pallet each of the Indian and Mediterranean Tonic water. Exp 09/20. Wouldn't wait too long if ya want it. Is inside the store near the checkouts, rather than out front.

    Edit to add: No ginger beer that I could see.
