here's the link (it's a bevnet story):

coke consolidated is a bottler, so does that mean none of the profits go back to the mother ship (coca-cola co)?

i guess it's good that they're buying something, but... cinnabon? do they really sell that much canned coffee?

also, there are rumors coke may buy arizona iced tea. i'd rather see them buy snapple (or is that already owned by pepsi?). but... at least it's a start. coke needs to play catch-up in the non-carbonated beverage category... fast.

I tried cinabon when it first came out.. but at $2 a can, I wouldn't make a habit out of drinking it.

Cinnabon rolls are sooo delicious! tongue.gif , I had the fortune to buy a roll at the Las Vegas International Airport

There's also some Cinnabons here in Mexico, for example there's one in Leon, but unfortunately there's no Cinnabon here in Aguascalientes :(

Orville Redenbacher had a Cinnabon flavor here, but I think it's been discontinued. I still have a bag of it, and it wasn't bad, not something I'd want to eat on a regular basis.

cinnabon seems small potatoes. but, maybe coke will start selling the brand in convenient stores.

I just wonder if Consolidated will franchise it to other bottlers.

I picked some up when I was hanging out with a fellow boardie - I have to say I didn't care for any of the flavors.

They're very metallic tasting. (I was the boardie that was with fusion). I only had the espresso kind so far though.

I can only find them at one food lion in courtland, VA.
