NEW YORK- September 9, 2015 (Gephardt Daily) — Coca-Cola’s Surge soda has returned to selected store shelves.

A year ago the soft drink company began selling the popular ’90s drink on the Internet realizing a loyal base of hard-core fans for the citrus-flavored soda with a kick still exists.

Coke began selling the drink on Amazon in 2014, and it promptly sold out in one day, even though the price was an incredible $14 for a 12-pack of 16-oz cans.

A Surge website currently shows where the product is for sale in the Midwest, South, upper Great Plains states, as well as some eastern states.

The site also contains a map of independent re-sellers all over the USA where Surge can be purchased.

Die hard ‘Surgers’ started an internet campaign called “The Surge Movement” to convince The Coca-Cola Company to bring it back.

It’s page on Facebook has attracted more than a quarter million “likes.”

The group initially raised $4,000 and bought a billboard across from Coca-Cola’s Atlanta headquarters that read: “Dear Coke, we couldn’t buy Surge, so we bought this billboard instead.”
