Coke and Pepsi have signed a mutual agreement effective immediately to terminate all current and new packaging designs now and in the future. AP News wire has confirmed that across the world Coke and Pepsi will no longer be available in assorted sizes and containers. In fact "All manufacturing of PET bottles for Coke and Pepsi including the popular 20. oz. and 2 liter bottles has been discontinued." According to Doug Meir spokesperson for Coke. "We regret having to make this decision at this time, but we felt the time had come." According to the USA Today Coke and Pepsi will only be available in a small 8.3 oz. tin can. "We looked at the leaders in our industry and responded to public outcry and came to the conclusion the 8.3 oz. can served the public's needs." Dan Davis the Vice President of Customer Relations with Pepsi added "We can now go on with the business of bringing our product to even more people and focus on other aspects of our business now that we have shed the dead weight and have the backing of the 8.3 oz. can. McDonald's, Wendy's, and Burger King will continue to serve fountain Coke and Pepsi until it runs out some time next week and then they to will convert to the convenient little cans. Jill Langheart from McDonalds says, "We are aware of the challenge ahead but we feel in the long run our customers will be better served, and ultimately we can now downsize the size of our straws." "How these changes will effect the markets is anyone's guess," says Tony Mellini a broker with Merrill Lynch. "If I were a betting man I would say the markets and the economy as a whole will grow substantially now that Pepsi and Coke have streamlined their business and its operation. After hearing the news the President has notified the 3 major stations and will make a public address tonight at 8:35 pm. proclaiming this day a new national holiday claiming this day to be a second Independence Day! Governor Jeb Bush added. "All Americans will share this day as we walk away from the past and the plastic bottles and look to the future with the 8.3oz. tin can at our side."
