Scotch Broth and Pepper Pot are still being made by Campbell's but a lot of
major stores don't carry them because the distribution center decides that
it can't sell them because nobody buys them (just check the sales figures)
because they aren't on the shelf (Catch 22). I buy mine at a local budget
grocery that carries a lot of thing the big chains don't handle and is
roughly a price match for WalMart.
If you buy by the case, you can probably get one of the chains to order it
for you and if a store is selling that much, the distribution center may
take to stocking it. Margaret once got a grocery store manager to order a
case, half for her, half for the shelf. When the store sold out a few hours
after stocking the half case, the manager was able to get the distribution
center to add Pepper Pot to the regular stock.
