As I promised... here's a front and back pic of the Coca-Cola 400 ml soccer ball shaped bottles to conmemorate the 2006 FIFA Soccer World Cup in Germany... that Coca-Cola named here as "balonchesco"

they should sell those around christmas time and decorate them like tree ornaments. they'd be a big hit at parties and stuff.

I'm not sure... because in Cancun, their bottling group is completely different from the one that bottles Coke in my city... but probably you'll find it there...

I love unique bottle designs. Too bad it becomes a hassle when shelving them or trying to fit them into a standard size cup holder.
