Hi Ramon - I notice in your signature on here that it's Coke's 80th Anniversary in Mexico. I was wondering if you have any photos of the commemorative Coke cans that are out to celebrate that event and have you seen the commemorative Coke bottles out in Mexico for the 80th Anniversary?

If you have any photos that you could post to share on here, I'd love to see them. Thanks!

Mr,
Were those old "odd" shaped bottles sold in your local stores? They look so cool!!!!!

Here's a pic of the conmemorative bottles (the one at the end is the regular 8 oz. bottle) they're replicas of the different bottles that Coca-Cola used during the end of the 19th century and beginning of the 20th century...

Hi Ramon - thanks! Are those cans and bottles still out in stores or is that promotion over now? What a great idea to package the Cokes in 'old' bottles to commemorate the anniversary!

This promotion started in the beginning of september but this bottles are still available specially at supermarkets like Wal-Mart and Soriana, and some grocery stores... actually I have my own bottles but I don't have the package cause I bought them separately in the grocery store... and the cans are still available, if you want to check the different designs, they're in the wallpapers at the section 80 AÑOS in www.coca-cola.com.mx (http://www.coca-cola.com.mx)
