Coke is out in full force with their trademark Santa, and for the first time, 8oz bottles are wrapped in plastic (like the Powerade Nitro and Matrix flavors), rather than ACL.

Pepsi is pushing Cat in the Hat, and Canada Dry is pushing Liquid Loot.

Our sales center only received one pallet of the 8oz 6 packs, from Needham Heights (NH), and they were gone in 3 days! I hear we aren't getting any more, which is really a dumb business move, imho.

Coke had 8oz glass bottles shrinkwrapped in plastic in the US last year.

Blank 6 pack holders, that is really lame.

I have a 1997 X-mas bottle from FW, it's good to see they are still producing glass. East cost CCE divisions have Needham Heights (NH) and Marietta (MR), and Philly (PH) produces 10oz deli glass Coke/Sprite/Diet -- they buy their 8oz Classic from NH.

I've seen glass Schweppes from HO (Indy, right?)

When I was in Kentucky, I bought deli glass from MK (Middlesboro) and I think EH (Coca-Cola United, Birmingham AL).

Now where I am confused is code WK. Ale-8-1 uses this code for their stuff (Winchester, Kentucky), but it's also used on 8.4oz KMX.. I really doubt they are the same plant, though.

yeah middlesboro does have their own deli glass line, they make an almost full line of products in that size and sell em for like 35 cents at c stores sometimes during the summer. i've got pibb, mello yello, coke, diet, diet cf, sprite, cherry coke all in deli glass from MK

Indy (HO) makes 10oz deli glass, although the 8oz line was shut down in the spring of 2003.

Canada Dry Lemon Ginger Ale was discontinued around 2000, at least around here. I haven't seen it anywhere I've traveled since then, either.

Oh okay, I thought it was just no longer sold around here.

While checking a list of Canadian Fantas, I found Fanta Spruce Beer listed. So, I called the 800 number, & found out it was a discontinued Winter Holiday flavor. ;)

hacksaw, what's that site that listed the canadian fantas? i'd be interested to know where to get some wierd ones. i know in certain areas there's still indie canada dry bottlers that bottle full lines of crazy canada dry nonsensical flavored beverages.

Canada Dry around here carries those crazy flavors.

Black Cherry
Wild Cherry
Island Lime
Pineapple
Vanilla Cream


That's all I can think of off the top of my head. They used to all have pretty interesting labels, but then when Cadbury moved all their products under the 78000 UPC family, they revamped the labels and they now have that boring crest logo on the front.

Wish we had those here. Who bottles those? They sound like some interesting new flavors to try.
