Diet Coke, 24 or 30 can boxes...Where are they?

Seems to be a dearth of these items. I use them as a mixer for my spiced rum and my stock is getting low so when we were out and about yesterday we checked Tesco, Morrison & Farm Foods....not one fucking box of either to be had. Plenty packs of 8 but buying them is far dearer. There is also plenty of the ordinary coke or that zero max stuff (I think that is its name) but Diet Coke.....nup! Apparently it's something to do with a lack of co2 being produced because the plants that do produce it for use in various products have all shut down for maintenance at the same time ? Something fishy if you ask me! Anyway, I thought co2 was bad for the environment (NO....I am not a believer in climate change/global warming) but appears we actually do require it.

Yeah I don't beleive in this global warming nonsense. I've been buying it for the ship, the 24 and 30 cans of diet coke. There is a shortage of fizzy drink due to the CO2 shortage so i'm guessing it will be back soon enough.

Diet coke is awful.

Coke Zero is my drink of choice.

Shortage of that too!

To you. I only use it as a mixer mind. Wife managed to get a 30 box this afternoon in Asda for a tenner....not bad but I'm looking for around £8.50.
