I'm pretty sure CCE has finally bought out Central Coke (Whose territories included areas of VR, WV, MD and my home state of PA)

The reason I think this: The Caps on some of the 20oz Coke bottles here in York now have the 1/12 chance win game. Central Coke never did this. But CCE does!

Central has been buying from CCE and CCBCC here of late to fill in gaps in production of 2L/20oz.

And since Mid-Atlantic Canners closed down, they have to buy all their cans from CCE and CCBCC.

We are actually winding down the 1 in 12 promo. Our Classic is now coming with plain caps and plain labels. Same with Fanta Orange and Nestea Cool. I'm actually surprised they didn't jump right into holiday labels on the 20oz.

The papers haven't been signed yet (as far as I know). We've been told to expect it to happen either the end of the month or the end of December. Hagerstown production is still running, and as far as I know they're still making Coke 20 ounce. What is the plant code on the bottle?
