Hello all, Im new here,from the UK.

I have a small collection of Coke cans and bottles from all over the world, my sister went to France on a school trip in 1987 and brought me back a glass coke bottle which was different to the UK version, after that i was hooked.

One of my favorites is a Diet Cherry Coke from the US in 1989, I was so happy when Diet Coke with Cherry got released in the UK but was very disapointed when it was black chery flavour instead of the regular Cherry Coke flavour. I love Cherry Coke.

I also have cans from japan, china, africa, austrailia and a Coca Cola Raspberry from New Zealand. I got a Coca Cola Zero last year from the US and look forward to its launch here in the UK in june.

Im always on the look out for new drinks here, this last week I bought a Fanta Grapefruit 2ltr bottle and Spite 3G 4pack.

I look forward to posting here.

If you are looking to expand your Coke collection you should drop me a line, as I am in the process of selling my collection. I have been collecting since 1985, and I am also in England.
