Pete,
I think I just had a "wet" soda pop dream. LOL
Have you tasted the Soho Blue Berry soda pop yet,
it looks awesome.

When did you have time to get married, your new soda pop additions must have been just as thrilling. LOL NOT!!!!!

Super nice pics, your bride is very pretty. smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif

Thanks Zabe! I appreciate it! No, haven't tried the Blueberry. I usually buy one to drink and one to keep but couldn't here. The car was FULL! As you can imagine.

Those were 23 oz. cans of SOHO for $.99! I wish I had room for more!

Pete, what an awesome findings!

The first thing that impressed me is the american Fanta Splash Bottles! It's good to know that United States and Mexico have the same Fanta bottle...

The glass Coke/Pepsi products bottles they're also cool, but I think they're not from here... maybe they're from another latin american country... maybe they're peruvian

Wow, those pictures of the Fresca billboard, the vending machines, the Coke fountain and the Coke cart are awesome! With only seeing that pictures I feel like if I were in North America!

And what a wonderful wedding! that is the greatest wedding cake I've ever seen!, in the future when I get married, I want a cake like yours (but maybe my future wife wouldn't let me) well... first I need to find a girlfriend so it's better to not think about my wedding right now... but anyway. Congratulations Pete and my regards and congratulations to your wife too!

Those aluminum can bottles look cool!
If my wife ever thinks I'm nuts for my soda searching, I'm sending her to this thread!

Congratulations Pete!

What was better: the marriage, or the soda?

Wait, don't answer that.

I use the computer at my parents house since I don't own one. I had to show my father this (plus wonkapete's other photos on bevnet) so he knows I am not the only one who comes home from road trips with this stuff (minus a new wife), or has a shed/garage with old bottles (although my otow shelves do not come close to wonkapete's stash).

wonkapete, where did you manage to find the glass Pepsi, 7UP and Coke? I live about 25 miles north of Orlando. That is one heck of haul you made there!

Haha, funny SEV.. yea, I don't have to answer that!

Keith, I found the bottles in Kissimmee at some small foreign gas station\food mart on 192, maybe a mile or two down from Siesta Lago Drive, that's where we stayed.

Thanks. Next time I am down there I will look for them.

How did the big Gulp sodas taste? I noticed a couple of unique flavors.

I haven't tried the Big Gulps yet. However, I remember a while back there was a thread on here and seems a lot of people liked them. Maybe others can chime in that have had them.

Pete, in what part of Orlando you took the picture of the Coke cart?

If I go someday in the future to Walt Disney World, I would take a picture with that Coke vending machine instead of Mickey Mouse...LOL... that vending is awesome!

The Coke cart picture was taken at Universal Studios. They had several throughout the park, selling Coke.

What does your wife think of all this?

wonkapete
11-10-2005, 04:14 PM
She loves it.. She knew what she was getting into when she met me smile.gif . She is very intrigued by it all. She has never seen all of my collection because it's packed up at so many houses. One day she'll see it all.

It's been a few years now man. All still well? My wife still puts up with all the soda stuff from me!

01-29-2007, 04:42 PM
Oh yea, all is well. She knew about my soda obsession before we married. Only comment I get now is, I need to hurry and get a museum built since I have my rental house full of bottles now, which means there's no $$ coming in from that property. I'm trying though..

Build it and we will come and throw a massive grand opening parting for you. (Said in a serious tone. smile.gif )
