My husband and I are going to be at CSA in 10 days. I am looking to buy Ting for some Christmas presents. Where can I buy Ting to take home? Thanks

We buy Ting at a place called Global Foods in our home town. You may want to check around your own city.

Depending on what part of the States you live in (assuming you live in the states) you may be able to find it here. We resupply weekly at Kroger.
Beyond that, take a cab to a local grocery store.

There's an importer here in South Florida that supplies Ting to various restaurants. They also sell on the web to anyone. Google Ting.
Boca Raton, Florida
(just a 75 minute plane flight from paradise)

Do I really have to pay those high rates to get some ting? I haven't found any local stores that sell it yet.

Just an FYI, though, the Ting in the US is totally different than the Ting in JA. The Ting in JA has real Grapefruit juice and real sugar. The stuff here is mostly artificial flavor and HFCS. (High Fructose Corn Syrup.)

We can buy Ting in St. Louis, but we were unable to find it at CSS when we were there last December. We'll be returning on Dec. 19th & we're hoping to have better luck this year. I believe I've seen some posts from people who found Ting at specific CSS bars. Can anyone verify this?

I am from Ohio and we have Kroger, but I have never seen it in the stores. I will just have to drink a lot while we are there.

We had it in our room at CSS a couple of weeks ago, but asked for it at a couple of the bars (Balloon and Beach), and they did not have it there. One bartender did make us his version of a homemade Ting though, and it was awesome!

Dang, the US ting isn't full of grapefruit juice??? Boo Hiss! I don't want it then. I drink San Pellagrino juice/soda, it comes in lemon and orange.. and has 10% juice.. closest thing I've found... it's pricey though.. $5/6 pack at the grocery, cheaper at Sam's club/Cosco.
Ting is on tap at the patio grille at CTI.. and I know they had bottles of it at the bar on Tower Island... so good!

Definitely no Ting at CSS, other than in the minibars in the rooms. It's "on tap" in the soda machines at CSA, I remember that for sure, but we were sad not to see in the soda fountains at CSS.

Does CSA serve Diet Ting?

If you can't find Ting, Squirt comes fairly close. BUT the OP wanted to know about bringing some back. If you buy it before your departure, you will have to pack it in your checked luggage. You may find it in a store at the airport after security. However, if you have a change a layover and change of flight coming home, you will have to pack it in your luggage once you claim it before going through immigrations.

Kwaters, the closest spot to Couples Negril to buy Ting will be (almost) across the street from the resort....walk 3-5 minutes up the road to the Petcom gas station (next to the craft market and airstrip)....you can buy it in plastic bottles...may be better to pack in the suitcases than glass bottles. A bottle will cost anywhere from J$60-J$80....less than a dollar per bottle.

Check the International aisle. There is usually a small Jamaican section, based on our experiences in the stores down here.

Tingsoda.com is the Florida distributer and it does have the real sugar and grapefruit juice...they sell both the glass and plastic bottles. You can also get a case delivered automatically once a month...not bad!

For those in the UK Lilt is a reasonable approximation to Ting - just make sure to avoid the diet version...
