I am setting up my own soda fountain in my apartment. I have all the machinery and items I need
except for the frickin' syrup. Can you guys help me in some way?

What I want:
Pepsi syrup in a 5 gallon Bag in Box maybe once a month.
Mountain Dew syrup in a 5 gallon Bag in Box maybe once a month.

Where I want it:
I want to be able to pick it up from somewhere within 25 miles of zip code 21209 (Baltimore MD).

What I have tried so far:
Talked to the local Pepsi bottlers and distributors and they told me they are not "setup" to
exchange boxes of syrup for US currency directly. They suggested that I contact a restaurant
and ask them to order me some, then pay the restaurant.

I talked to a store manager (and her supervisor) for the local Long John Silvers/A&W restaurant
(closest Pepsi selling place to me). They said there is no way for them to ring me up for the
syrup properly and that it would screw with their inventory.

I then talked to a local restaurant that is a "mom and pop" type operation. They sounded like
they might deal with me but then they gave me some bullshit about how they are going through
some changes right now that would make dealing with me impossible. These "changes" are
also secret because they won't tell me what they are.  :tickedoff:

Now I will guess I will have to find another "mom and pop" restaurant that is not going through
secret changes. Unless... you guys have any ideas.

Other facts you should know:
Sam's Club and Costco do carry Coke and Generic BiB products, but not Pepsi.
I will pay slightly more for the BiBs than what the restaurant pays the distributor.


Cliffs:
I want Pepsi and Mountain Dew syrup in 5 gallon BiB.
No one will give me the syrup in exchange for money.
Please help me figure out how or where to obtain the sweet delicious syrup I crave!

    I've wanted a soda fountain for years. Its my favorite way to drink soda along with the bottled ones  made in Mexico...love those.   Syrup is the cheapest way to drink it too,which is probably why Pepsi wont sell it to the average consumer.

some people rob Mc Donalds for the money but mentok used his super uber powers to rip out the soda machine and carry it to his place.

How are you going to get the CO2?  Just wondering.  I like Coke so that is good news if I ever want to set one up.  Except the bag would probably only last a couple of days.  I have a bit of a problem...

That is what I am looking for, but it is twice as expensive as it should be. It should be between $50-$60. Weird. All of their BiB syrups are like $40 too expensive and it does not seem to be a shipping charge.

I have a CO2 tank that I got filled with CO2.

One 5 gallon box of syrup makes 30 gallons of drinkable Coke. I hope you don't drink that much every couple of days.

30 gallons is a bit outside of my ability in that amount of time.  Probably best not to have the temptation.  It would probably be gone faster than would seem normal.  Good luck.

You need to get a man on the inside at a restaurant and arrange to buy it from them for cost or at a slight markup.

Mentok, You might also try working out a deal with a local theater. Especially if you have a Pizzeria/Theater in town.
