Anyone know anything about promotional labels for the 20oz. Coke products?

Last summer cherry Coke and Vanilla Coke had special graphics. Anything planed this time?

I have not found any summer Coke bottles yet, We still have the ESPN ones here, unless those are the summer graphics for Coke.

I found some wraped 1L PET Coke Classic with a nice Nascar theme from (SL) Saint Louis.

The ESPN/Coke thing is three phases. The first phase (we had NCAA final four labels) had the yellow caps, now we have the funky neon green caps (baseball labels around here, though there are also Nascar labels). Classic, Vanilla, and Cherry. So, I doubt you'll see any special cherry or vanills labels this summer.

Sprite has promo graphics and a silver cap.

1L Classic in the Baltimore area is wrapped with an Orioles 50th anniversary wrap.

Pepper has S2 wraps.

I guess we have the same promotions going on here too then, except the 50th anniversary Orioles bottles.

Sounds like Coke is very regional with their promo packaging.

In south Texas 8oz Coke bottles still have NCAA final four plastic wraps with 8oz Sprite bottles still celebrating the Spurs 2003 NBA championship.

8oz Cokes in Abilene, TX have the 100th Anniversary graphics on the glass for the local Coke bottler. Another current variation for 8oz Coke are bottles carrying 'Class of 2004' graphics on the glass.

The midwest has been blanketed by 1L Cokes with the Nascar promo label.

Sierra Mist has Shrek 2 cans and bottles available and as mentioned in a previous post Dr Pepper is all Spiderman 2 on every size except 8oz cans.

We have the Class of 2004 8oz as well. Dr Pman also mentioned Coca Cola 600 bottles in the Carolinas.

It seems like we are getting fewer and fewer promo 8ozers every year. I remember when they used to do full runs of all the racing family drivers. That stopped two years ago.

they switched to a different 8oz, not the clear label anymore in michigan, well, lack of label, anyway, you prolly know what i mean. but the lack of promo 8ouncers sucks hardcore. coke's really killing what sold those things - collectors and novelty drinkers.

Fusion, they did have Nascar 2003 bottles. I never found them but have seen them on ebay. Check out item 3681903494 or 3681904388. I have no idea where these were released.

Are you talking about how the labels had just a cherry for Cherry Coke and a "V" for Vanilla Coke, XLS?

yes i am. i was wondering if something like that would be done again this summer but aparently not.

i also notice in other countries the major soda companies do alot more special packaging than they do here.
