Both cans do say Bio near the top. Maybe it’s just a new design.

What flavour is the one on the left?
I don't know ... I'd assume regular flavor, just as the one on the right.

Which ones do you have?

So far I have 3 only ... white (light) and two of those red ones (on my pic), white vs black letters.

Circle K has way more than that.

So which one do you have?


Today I'll stop at different Shoppers and see if they got any different can (somehow I doubt it).

Stopped there ... there was nothing different there. Same red and white cans.

Took one ... some stupid cashier is telling me I have to pay taxes ... 49 cents or something like that...

I go .. NOPE ... other stores don't charge you taxes ... and my mother redeemed it without a need to pay tax as well.

She just didn't do it ... Ended up calling some Front Store Manager or something like that ... who was as moronic as the cashier ... stuck up for the obese cashier basically ... and didn't let it go.
Her eyes didn't look very intelligent either ...
I started to lose my temper a bit ... then figured it's useless ... took my coupon and left ... ( my wife was at the dentist next door, so no issues (re: driving there specifically for this GURU for nothing :) ).

Told them as I was leaving, that I hope I won't need to return at their store in the future.

On the way back ... stopped at two more shoppers (that didn't visit before) ... and redeemed one at each store without any problems.

Nothing new though ... same red and white cans ... not even black letters GURU (as they carry at my mother's store) :)

No other shoppers has that Bio Organic one (with black letters on it), but the one near my mother's place.

WTF is Bio Organic ... and what is the difference between it and just Organic?

Actually ...the one that doesn't say bio ...has bio mention on top as well (in smaller letters) ...so maybe it's the same shit, just from different pile lol :D

Pic ....

I believe that the black lettering was simply an old design! Maybe double check the expiry date...
They refreshed the graphics (White Lettering) on all their products when they released the Matcha flavor.

Anyway, are you guys printing in black and white or color?
I print in black and white

Hmmm ... maybe you are onto something here ....

White letters: Exp. 09/2022

Black letters: Exp. 06/2021


Probably black letters from store near my mother's place = old(er) leftovers that they have in stock ... and soon they will switch to the white letters as well.

I got green can (matcha) , a full red can, and a silver can. Can't find any blue cans in Shoppers. But I see them at Circle K

Never saw Green can in any of Winnipeg's Shoppers to-date.

Having the one with Black letters now .... (exp. 06/2021) ... I find it a bit flat ...

Maybe because it's kind of old.

Probably good idea to try and get Red can with white letters instead of black letters ... it's more likely more fresh, more carbonated and therefore probably tastes better

I've been collecting at various parts of the city locations and its hit and miss.

Some stores, give it totally free. One store flat out said "we dont accept printed internet coupons". Other stores I have to pay the deposit and tax on it. I aint going to argue its 0.20 cents for a free product but just weird there isnt the same procedure across the board. But free is free. Got 2 in one go last night.

It's the matter on principle, lol ... It's like a game.

This chit, regardless, how much they sell it for ... is quite bad (to me anyhow), not sure if it's even worth 40something cents. I surely wouldn't pay 40 - 50 cents for it, lol :)

Besides ... I am not in Alberta ... we pay provincial tax here as well ... :) ;)

You say that but...

You seem to be going out of your way for it. Unless you are walking you are spending more than .40 cents gas.

Anyway you do you. :)

Picked one up today. Totally free, didn't have to pay taxes but had coins in my pocket just in case. I don't mind paying that little bit if needed.

close to 50 cents wasn't a little for this chit, lol ... I'd rather have a can of pop for same money or less already.

Anyhow ... all of those shoppers were not out of my way ... stopped at Circle K at first (also for freebies), the Shoppers is across the street there from circle K,

Went to CIBC after, Shoppers is next to it basically. On the way home later on, stopped at our local shoppers and got that 3rd guru there, as planned :)

honestly i am so tempted to try that new coke energy... it's right next to the guru's at SDM, but since I get guru's for free i'll stick to that

I think coke's most people's favourite soft drink
