Yeah, if you're looking for someone who isn't afraid to criticize, Food Snob is your lady! In fact, she introduces her blog with a statement that largely mirrors your feelings:

"No doubt about it: Durhamites love their food. But sometimes they love it just a bit too indiscriminately. The food snob is here to provide a little critical judgment, a little sarcasm, a little mockery, and hopefully a fresh perspective on food life in Durham."

So I WAS right. It tastes EXACTLY like Squirt (nowadays, at least). Sorry for your loss, lol!

Dining near South Point or between there and Chapel Hill?

"You really should check out the intersection of 54 and 55, if you've never been. There are seveal other interesting ethnic eateries there."

T-H-I-S!! Excellent advice from Tom here. The Jamaican restaurant near Big Lots has the best jerk chicken in the area, imho.

I LOVE the Massaman at Thai Cafe, but no potatoes in it. Just cashews and avocado.

I checked the Kroger for you - no cans. What they DO have, though, are cans of Squirt. Squirt and Wink taste identical to me. Would that work?

Yeah, the Kroger on Hillsborough in Durham ALWAYS has the 2L in stock. Can't say I've ever seen cans...
