Fans of the highly sought-after drink Prime can now track stock in shops with a new app. There have been chaotic scenes across the country when shops get the viral beverage in stock, notably at Aldi stores between Christmas and New Year, after the retailer put limited stocks on sale.
The drinks first went on sale in the US back in early 2022 and the UK didn't receive its first batch of the drinks until December - but they sold out almost as soon as they arrived. It was exclusively sold in ASDA, however, other outlets - such as corner shops - have started selling them.
There have also been stories of people paying tens or even hundreds of pounds for bottles of Prime. Now, a new app promises people looking for stock, a chance to catch a jump on others.

As reported by BirminghamLive, the Prime Tracker UK app shows branches of Asda, Aldi and Spar where the drink is in stock. It says it will tell users of changes within 30 seconds of stock updates.
According to the description on the Apple App Store, a team monitors and contacts the three retailers to create an accurate database of where Prime is stocked. It also sources information from a Discord server with other 12,000 users and regularly post updates on its Twitter page.
Users can find the shops closest to them with Prime available, as well as any online stock via the news page. People can also submit stock updates themselves, adding locations and pictures of Prime drinks they come across.
The app's creators believe Tesco will start selling the viral drink soon, too. They claim to have launched the app because "we're in the same boat as many other people".
Prime has been in short supply ever since it was launched in the UK. Aldi, along with Asda and Spar, are the only official outlets to sell the drink in the UK. Prime Tracker is available to buy for 89p from the Apple App Store.
