I keep seeing these billboards around Chicagoland for Coca-Cola with the slogan that I think said something like "Get It In Glass". After seeing a few of these ads, I thought I'd see the product around in grocery stores or convenience stores but I have not. I would gladly get it in glass if I knew where to get it.

Am I not looking in the right places or does this product even exist yet??? Maybe a 2006 roll out?

Anyone???

I'd call the Coke bottler.

It could be the 8 or 10oz 6pks that Jewel,Dominicks,Wal-mart,Meijer and other retailers now sell.

Last week I saw a 6pk of Coca Cola Holiday bottles priced at $4.59. My Dad who loves Coke glass and I started to laugh. It was too pricey for us to even think about buying. LOL

Some gas stations in the northern subs of chicago have 11.8oz glass bottles with the white plastic screw on caps for $0.99 each. They had coke, coke zero, diet coke and they said there was sprite also but they didnt order it. I talked to my local coca cola bottler and they do have the products but cost to me was higher than $0.99 a bottle so I will wait till promo time.

CORRECTION: I saw another billboard yesterday and it says "GRAB It In Glass". It's not the Holiday 2005 Coke six-packs. It's a glass bottle with a plastic cap, like bardsny mentioned.

I appreciate the tips. I'd really appreciate exact locations as well or at least the name of the gas stations (BP, Mobil, Citgo, Shell, etc...). Thanks.

I think you can order them from a factory in Georgia for cheaper. Not positive though.

I can't believe no one has found this yet! This appeared to be a major step by Coca-Cola to produce another version of Coke in glass (8oz nostalgia version and now an 11.8oz convenience store version) and NO ONE HERE CAN REPORT WHERE TO GET IT????

I took fusion's advice and left a message with rep from the local Coke bottler. I do not expect a call back but if I get one, I will share the findings with the class.

Glass is great, but PLASTIC caps???

They can't do crown caps?

I've seen the 8 oz bottles at our 'fancy' grocer- just for Classic Coke, not diet though. As has been mentioned, they're quite pricey.

well from what i know of the american market 11.8 is the biggest american offering aside from the the what was in memphis,MO in hy-vee stores people in this board would talk about.the idea of that is better then the 8 or 10 ounce I can buy here it would be nice to get closer to one bottle being able to do the job for a drink when going for glass.so please update when you can find it and someone please offer me a good price so I can buy it.

I found some of these in Atlanta today. There's a lot more advertising out than there is product on the shelves. I did not see it in any of the grocery stores or c-stores, I found them at the international farmer's mkt. off Jimmy Carter Blvd. @ I-85.

They don't look much different than the plastic bottles.

I found one glass bottle of Coke Zero in Atlanta at a Shell station on N. Druid Hills Rd. The proprietor said he special ordered the glass bottles after a customer asked for them. It was the same price as a 20 oz, but being a fan of glass bottles, I had to try it. I couldn't tell any difference in the flavor, since Coke Zero already has the artificial sweetener aftertaste. If I ever see Coke Classic I'll let you know. Even in Atlanta, the glass bottles don't seem to be too common.

At the third or forth row of checkout stations (on the food side) there is a Coca-Cola cooler, and there you will find 3 shelfs of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, and Coke Zero in glass bottles as seen below. Enjoy!

They are not in Indianapolis, but they should be. There are gas stations here like Shell selling Mexican 435ml resealable (returnable if you were in Mexico) glass bottles. There would be quite a market for them here. I am going to try that gas station in Chicago later this week and see if I can pick up some. I would think the bottler here would want to sell in glass and stop or slow down the Mexican product here.

I haven't seen them yet in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago. I heard I should check out around the Skokie/Northbrook area, but I haven't made the trip.

Also haven't heard anymore on the Pepsi in glass. I'm sure that's going to be harder to find than the Coke.

They have lots of Coke in the glass bottle with a regular cap (not plastic) at the new BP gas station in Farmington Hills, Michigan on 13 Mile and orchard Lake (south-east corner).

They also have Jumex, Sidral Mundet, and all Crush and Faygo flavors, etc.

Jumex... good, Sidral Mundet... not good IMO, but Mundet tamarindo and pineapple are dang good!

BTW... Here in Aguascalientes arrived the new Coca-Cola 8 oz. glass bottles with embossed logo, without foam paper label... like the ones released in U.S. six years ago...

But I'm not so sure if they will be permanent, because I bought one in Wal-Mart and the cashier had serious problems looking for the price of the bottle, because it doesn't have any bar code.

I could be wrong but I think they were the 8 oz. coke classic in glass bottles. Im not sure. They looked really small. They might have had the 11 oz. there also.

The faygo at BP was in plastic; however, Faygo is availabe in glass bottles at Busch's supermarket in Farmington Hills on the north west corner of grand river and drake.

Sidral Mundet is made in Mexico and always gives me a case of "Montezemas revenge" so I don't buy it anymore. I love the taste of pure cane sugar and apples in Sidral Mundet though.

They also have Jarritos and other brands of soft drinks at the BP gas station.

OK. I just hit a few of the gas stations in the northern suburbs of Wheeling, Northbrook and Niles and I did not find any. This has become VERY frustrating.

Does anyone on here work for Coke or know any way of finding out where Coke distributes this product EXACTLY? I can't keep driving around to random locations hoping to find this.

BTW, I did get Kosher Coke today in 2 liter bottles and cans. Go to the Passover Coke 2006 post for exact details.

I picked up 6 cases of the 11.8oz coke from my coca cola bottler but the price is high now. Not selling that well, Coke Zero and Diet Coke have 1 month dating and the Sprite never came out since they were having troubles with the bottles. Also got my kosher for passover coke in cans in.

I went in to a local Mexican store this evening and picked up one Coke (16oz) and one Pepsi (12oz). They are in the fridge chillin...I'll try one later. That said, I am not sure if what I bought is HFCS of sugar. It says and/or. This was the first store I stopped in and for $2.41 out the door for the two, it wasn't a huge gamble to try it.

More imported Pepsi and Coca-Cola


I decided to go up to another Mexican market this evening and see if they had any glass product. I moved past the beer cooler on to the soft drinks. No glass. As I started to walk out I looked to see what interesting beers they might have when I spotted the glass soda smile.gif I grabbed two of each thinking they were all the same. The two Pepsis were both from Mexico and the one Coke was as well. But after I got home I noticed the 354ml Coke was more of a clear bottle, as opposed to being green tinted. It's white sticker makes no mention of sucrose, only corn syrup...and it's from Nicaragua :D

You're so right!, for example our Coke glass bottle doesn't have the Coke square printed in the bottle, although if you come to Mexico City or Leon or any city where FEMSA bottles Coca-Cola... you'll see clear bottles like that one from Nicaragua...

They also have all the new coke products, including coke blak and tab.

It's regular Tab from the old days (not the energy drink).

I found a Tab 12 pack (12oz cans) in a violet colored box at the Meijer in Brighton.

The Dr. Pepper in glass at the Kroger in West Bloomfield is just regular Dr. Pepper made with HFCS.

Is that the 12oz bottles originating from the West Jefferson plant in NC or the 8oz Imperial Cane Sugar version from Dublin, TX. To my knowledge, both use cane sugar though the 12oz bottle states "high fructose corn syrup and/or sugar" on the label.

I find it fascinating that Kroger sells this. Other than the Coke/Diet Coke/Sprite 8oz bottles I see at stores around Chicago (Jewel in particular), I've never seen the West Jefferson glass products (Dr Pepper, Orange Crush, Sunkist, A&W, RC, 7-up, Cheerwine, Nehi, etc...) in a major chain.

I'm not sure. It's been a while since I've been in that store.

If my memory serves me correctly, I believe it was 8oz glass bottle with a crown cap and the ingredient was HFCS with no mention of "and/or sugar."

I know the 8oz coke, in the similar packaging, only listed HFCS.

If I'm back in the store I will check it out.

I have seen Coke in glass bottles (from Mexico)4 sale in Las Vegas.

It seems Coke has put the clamps on Mexican Pepsi in the U.S.

I recently went in search of Coke from Mexico in 16.9 oz. glass bottles on the streets of LA's wholesale district's.

I was told they would soon B importing 16 oz glass from Mexico.

We have three sizes of Mexican Coca-Cola sold here in Indianapolis. We have glass 355ml, 435ml, and 500ml. Pepsi is only available in 355ml, & 500ml. The 435ml Cokes are thick glass returnables with a screw off plastic top.

Philadelphia Coke had a one-time run of Dr Pepper in angle glass bottles for the Army/Navy football game a few years back.

I believe Coke Sanford NC sells 8oz Dr Pepper.

The 12oz Coke glass bottles that were being test marketed in Atlanta are gone now ... checked a couple of places where I found them in January but no luck.

Union City Coke self-produces Coke, Sprite, Diet Coke and Dr Pepper in 8oz glass. They also had Coke, Sprite, Diet Coke and Mello Yello in deli bottles when I was there last October.

Hello All,

With help from another here, I found Coke and Pepsi in old-style bottles (12 oz.) in Imlay City, MI....they have 4 Mexican stores that supply direct from Mexico.
I bought 2 cases...and man they are GREAT!
The bottles were going for $1.25 each
I have one of the store names on a business card, he said call ahead and he can order as many cases as you want.
