Where to find VitaMalts in North Carolina/Tennessee?
July 30, 2010 1:38 PM   Subscribe

A while ago a trip to the Bahamas ended up with me hooked on Vita Malt. Are there any brick-and-mortar sources in West North Carolina/East Tennessee I can try?

Vita Malt is this quirky beverage brewed from hops. It tastes like a sweet beer but without the alcohol. Once you get past your first bottle, it can be addictive.

I've been scouring the local markets for the stuff since I got back from a trip to the Bahamas, but I have not found it (or anything like it) yet. When I was in Texas, a few specialty markets carried it, but Tennessee and North Carolina have been less forgiving.

I found one online retailer who sells it, but as much as I love the drink I can't bring myself to pay an arm and a leg (note: it comes in glass bottles by the case).

Any ideas or suggestions?

The US brand Malta Goya might be easier to get. Also check Hispanic groceries.

Try any west african store you can find. (I'll ask my sister to text me the name of one in NC when i get home from work).

I came to suggest Malta Goya as well. Even in small towns in East TN, it is readily available in the grocery store's Hispanic section.

Yup, Malta Goya. It was also called Vita Malt in Germany.
