Hadn't heard about these yet. :eek: I'd probably buy 9 cases whether or not I'd get one free.....

but knowing my luck, they'll not be produced within a few hundred miles from me. :rolleyes:

Classy! Hope the glass is decently thick. I'm sure real cane sugar is a pipedream though. Anyways I hope they show up around here.

We have a similar glass bottle here in England for Pepsi, available in some pub's and deli's.

So exactly what is Pepsi Direct anyway? I don't recall hearing about that part of the company before.

And how can I get them to "direct" 10 cases towards my front door?? :D

"Gimme, Gimme, Gimme - I NEED, I NEED, I NEED!" :cool:

I really hope these go nation wide. If they can just make it taste like AD Huesing used to do with their cane sugar 12oz bottles, I will be happy.

I think Pepsi Direct deals with retailers. If you look at the small print on the post card the offer looks to be directed to retail accounts.

Yeah, I figured it was a wholesaling part of Pepsi. I just never heard of it before, and I'm sure it wasn't around in the mid 90's when I worked for Pepsi.

It does seem maybe a little odd though, that the Pepsi Direct address is in Winston-Salem, NC - especially if this offer is geared toward Michigan accounts.

One question... they're returnable or not returnable?

Although the bottle deposit tells me that maybe it's returnable...

Pepsi Direct is a call center for restaurants etc. to call and order product through. The bottles are non-refillable but returnable, all Michigan bottles and cans carry a deposit so they do not up on the ground. They are all recycled. My wife ordered me a couple of cases of this, I will let everyone now the specifics and post pics.

The bottles are nice looking. Hopefully they'll be more reasonably priced than the 8-oz Cokes which are now going for $5 a six-pack in some stores in my area.

How can we order them without paying the huge markup from soda dealers? I can see certain soda specialty shops sucking them all up before everyone else.

In fact where can we get them at all?

Do not hold your breath abouot them being cheaper. Everything I'm being told is they are going to retail at about $28.00 a case.

BottleBoss

GAG!!! I'll buy them anyway though.

I think I'd just keep buying Mexican Pepsi, at that price! $28 a case works out to be $1.17 a bottle.

Anyone seen a 24 pack of 12-oz PET Pepsi bottles? I saw it as a Pepsi guy was unloading it for a small grocery store in downtown Seattle today. The 24-pack is shrink wrapped like the 6-pack 24oz Pepsi bottles. Wondered if it's new or been around in other states.

24 packs, nope haven't seem that yet. I think 12 packs are the most PETs I've seen together. the bottlers around here don't use shrink wrap for their 6/24oz's either.

12 oz pet 24 pack, 16.9 oz pet 24 pk, 24 oz pet 24 pack. I have seen them all, however they are encased in wrap like a case of Aquafina, the 6 packs here use belly wrap ringers.

I have seen the 24 packs of 12oz PET at various Wal-Mart locations. In a tray and shrinkwrapped.

I also remember on a previous trip to Ohio, there were 12 packs of 12oz PET that were belly banded.

24oz 6pks are banded here as well - no shrinkwrap. The only shrinkwrapped 6pks I see are 6pk 16.9oz from Davis (DPSU guys) because they tried just hi-coning them, and they were unstable. They still put the hi-cone on before shinkwrapping them, which seems odd.
