Looks like the plain red with the flat wave look is coming to the US...see the Coca-Cola Classic can in this pic taken from the Coke Zero web site:

http://www.66mustang.net/images/classic07.jpg

I really don't like the new "flat wave" design. I wish they would either use the original 1970's wave or the re-designed 1980's/90's wave.

When is Coca Cola going to lose 'Classic' from the name? After 20 years, there's really not a need for it. Secondly, no one calls it 'Classic' anymore. At least it's been de-emphasized over the years.

As for the 'flat' looking packaging, that's the trend right now. A solid color (or near-solid minimalist design) background with a solid-color logo on top. I've been seeing this trend in the design world over the past few months.

I don't mind the solid color (or near-solid minimalist design) background with a solid-color logo on top; what I don't like is the design of the new wave that does not have near the curvature as the original 1970's or revised 1980's wave designs.

Actually, in the industry, we still use the term classic quite a bit.

Great finding... thanks!... I see that the japanese folks from japantoday.com were not wrong... I like better the current logo, but whatever, the new logo will be welcomed too... :)

I wonder if this packaging change will apply for the Lime and Black Cherry Vanilla versions also... if they survive...

Did you noticed that the "classic" word looks different?

Here in Mexico there's no sight of the new logo, in fact the regular can design with the current logo returned after two years of special edition cans with graphics of "toma lo bueno" and "Coke side of life" campaign graphics...

"Classic" serves several roles for the company today.

- Within the industry, it is used as the name of that product. A store will order so much "classic", so much "diet", so much "zero" and so on. The alternative would be "regular". No company wants it product to be called "regular".

- As soon as they take the word off the can, the internet rumor passers and the other urban legend psycos will spew out that they had to do so because its "not classic anymore" with wild tales of what they have changed.

- It provides an easy way to say that "zero" has "classic" taste.

- It protects Coca-Cola as a brandname for a family of products. Coca-Cola Classic, Coca-Cola Zero, etc, etc. Otherwise its Coca-Cola (regular) and variants on that.

I think the "classic" branding only exists in the US and a few other markets. In most countries it's just called Coca-cola, or Coke (and is made with real sugar ;) ).

I could easily come up with a retort to every other one of your points. But what you said about 'regular' makes sense. 'Classic' has a far better connotation than 'regular' or 'plain.'

Still, my nostalgic side longs for the day when 'classic' disappears altogether. The fewer reminders we have of New Coke the better.

(Granted, I'll admit New Coke wasn't bad...it just wasn't Coke.)

IMO, Coke will always be Coke and not Coke Classic.
I'm guessing that most Cole lovers have gotten over the
Coke II fiasco.

i'm with you. i don't mind the simple design. i'd just prefer that the wave have a little more "curve" to it. at a lot of angles, it doesn't look like a "wave" at all... it looks like a smile or something.

also, why does the coke zero wave look different in that pic? it almost looks like it was drawn on after the fact...

as for losing the "classic"... there seem to be valid arguments for both. it does seem that the word keeps getting smaller and smaller over the years.

I don't mind the solid color (or near-solid minimalist design) background with a solid-color logo on top; what I don't like is the design of the new wave that does not have near the curvature as the original 1970's or revised 1980's wave designs.

According to wikipedia, in the bottle and logo section, says that Coca-Cola removed the "Classic" on its label in Canada... but I don't know if this is true...

"In January 2007, Coca-Cola Canada changed "Coca-Cola Classic" labelling, removing the "Classic" designation, leaving only "Coca-Cola". "

now that it been a while there is more then good reason to remove the classic.That being said at this point having over 100 years they prob love the fact that a word like classic can be tied to the old product to give it flavor since being old is not special but somethign old being a classic is something worth having so I think it was a big part of it never going away to this point.look at it like this a 1975 broke down ltd is old a 1975 mint mustang is a classic which would be the more desired.

I miss the old wave of the 80s/90s where it went thru the coca-cola wordmark, and was white and silver.
The basic one isnt too bad, but its slightly a downgrade as I liked the dynamic ribbon from 2003 - now.
Of course coca-cola cherry is now ribonless, whihc is odd, but I do love that it looks very different now.

With all that said, the new look from what I see isnt TOO BAD, the ribbon does need to be more curvy tho.

popologist
02-27-2007, 10:57 PM
yeah. that ribbon does seem to be missing something.

and i also would've preferred the ribbon on cherry coke & cherry coke zero as well. i mean, that IS coca-cola.

02-28-2007, 02:12 AM
The new can does not look too different than the current can. The only thing that is really different is the designs in the background is gone. and of course the ribbon is one color and flatter.

I honestly think most people (the general public) wont even notice this.

I'd like it if Coke dropped "Classic" for its flagship product, even though it's useful to distinguish it from of the other Cokes out there (Diet, Zero, Cherry, etc.)
For a while it looked like Coke was moving away from the "Classic" moniker as seen on the contour, "always" and "enjoy" cans pictured: http://i18.photobucket.com/albums/b118/nosoda/enjoy.jpg

And here are a few classic pre "Classic" cans...

The problem is the design of the wave. The wave has hardly any "wave" to it at all. I have no problem with retro packaging, but if they truly want it to look retro then they need to use the 1970's / early 1980's wave design, not the flattened version that is being introduced now.

Apparently 'Classic' is now written in lowercase - similar to 'cherry' on Cherry Coke.

Still - the more I think about it, the more I think 'classic' needs to go away. It was introduced to differentiate it from New Coke. And New Coke has long since departed. From a consumer marketing standpoint, I see no reason to keep it around. I know of no one who ever refers to Coke as 'Classic.'

I'm still waiting for the word "Coke" to appear on the can in a full logo. Ever since Coca-Cola CLASSIC was introduced the word "Coke" has kind of dissapeared in the US, unless it was a diet or flavored version.

If they really want it to look like "Coca-Cola" again in the US they should use the word "Coke" on one side of the can and "Coca-Cola" on the other and finally get rid of the word classic.

We wish Coke would re-introduce Coke C2 as COKE CLASSIC LITE----like Budweisier's "Bud Lite', and Miller's "Miller Lite" beer. We don't believe Coke designed the C2 can to really sell, and if you ever found a 12 pkg of C2 they were just "blurred" in beside regular Coke Classic, and nobody knew what C2 was because Coke barely even advertised C2.

Now that there is a huge trend toward saving calories (ie: Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem etc) Coke will reconsider redesigning the C2 can and reintroduce C2 As COKE CLASSIC LITE. "Half the calories and carbs, without sacrificing taste".

Fox News reported that soft drink sales were lagging. We believe a LITE Coke NOT ZERO (Coke already HAS Diet Coke) would sell as great as Lite Beer, if Coke redesigned the C2 can and renamed it Coke Lite.

popologist
03-12-2007, 09:59 PM
that actually sounds like a good idea!

the name (C2) and packaging was confusing to a lot of people, i think. to re-introduce it as "coke lite" might fix that problem. (of course, it might confuse foreigners, who already have "coca-cola light" as their name for diet coke).

Ram0n, thank you for the picture.

Couple of questions for anyone who can answer.

1. Is "Classic/Classique" "Original taste/Gout d'origene" still apear near the ingredent list. Or has it been completly dropped? As I was under the impression that Coke II was still sold in Quebec, or am I way off on that?

2. When can we expect the new Coke look here in the States? thought/read it was mid march, and have not see it, nor Diet Coke's new look yet either.

Ram0n C0keah0lic
03-14-2007, 07:45 PM
1. I think they dropped it, I posted before in this thread a pic I found at flickr where appears the lower part of the label of a canadian Coke (I knew it's canadian because it says only "591 mL" in the net weight legend), there's no "classic" word on it...

http://farm1.static.flickr.com/173/413227516_8759a68a9b_d.jpg

2. I'm not so sure... but something tells me that the new look will be released in april when the March Madness promotion ends... while here in Mexico, no sight of it yet... but it's OK cause I love the current look also...

I believe this new design brings us closer to pre-wave/new coke than any we've seen since. Granted, the "catch the wave" design was basically the original with stylized text and two-color ribbon. After the end of Coca-Cola (new coke) and the uninspired frenzy designs which followed on the Classic packaging, I welcome this new package.

Sometimes I wish I could just pick up a Coke and it say Coca-Cola/Coke... Nothing says more about the heart of the world's most famous brand and beverage than that. Pure inspiration.

i think they're finally on the right track with coke zero. they're stressing the "taste"... which is its strong point.

they're doing a good job with diet coke too though. it's more of a "clique" or "attitude"... so they're kind of reinforcing how people who drink diet coke think of themselves (fashionable, in shape, etc).

now, we just need to see coke zero in some outlets where men hangout. pull diet coke from the stadiums and arenas and replace it with diet coke. this will force women to try it (when they happen to tag along)... and, then, possibly, buy it for their husbands next time she's at the store... or the next time he wants to lose a few pounds. plus, it allows a guy to go low-cal without sipping "diet" coke. ;)

Mr R,
IMO taste was mentioned in the Coke Zero adds to a certain extent.
So I do see your point. My perception of at lest the sparse early
TV adds seemed to be more eye catching than anything else. They
did not "bring home" the unique "ground breaking" taste of this new
soda pop. (new no carb diet like). A great deal of core and non core diet
soda pop drinkers were reluctant to try Coke Zero at least in the first
3 quarters of it's introduction.

You're right... "Chilltop" (G. Love singing a new version of I'd like to buy the world a Coke" jingle) was one of that eye catching ads... but later they released ads making more focus about its taste... for example the one when the Coke classic bottle turns into a Coke zero bottle or the other ad when in the product line of Coke classic bottles a guy pushes by accident a button and the Coke classic bottles turn to Coke zero bottles, or the ad where two guys spray their friend with a Coke and a Coke zero and he doesn't notice the difference... that's the commercials I talk about...

Coke Zero has taste? I must have missed the 1000 post thread on the forum backing up the taste factor in Diet Coke. :rolleyes:


"TASTES SO MUCH LIKE COKE we should sue ourselves".

My personal opinion is that it tastes nothing like the original and it does not taste better than some cheaper alternatives on the market.



"Tastes nothing like coke I should sue my taste buds for being honest."


To establish whether big-name diet colas like Diet Coke and Pepsi Max taste better than cheaper alternatives, Choice conducted a blind taste-test among 277 Sydney shoppers. Rival brands included generics such as Black & Gold, Australia's Choice, Home Brand and You'll Love Coles.
Tasters were unable to differentiate between the 11 drinks.

No single brand tasted better or worse than average, even among label-conscious groups such as those aged 18 and under.
But big brands are more popular because of their advertising power.

yeah. it looks alright on cans, cuz they're silvery. but, on all other packaging, it just looks dull gray.

i think white, with red text and red ribbon would look good... maybe with some silver accents.

the gray just looks very dull on the shelves.


I agree, the gray background is dull.

I'm agree, I remember that 20 oz. Diet Coke bottles had silvered labels last year, and the 20 oz. Sprite bottles have silvered label too, but I don't understand why they didn't made the same with the other sizes...
In our case, the Coca-Cola Light labels of all the sizes are silvered: 600 ml, 1 lt and 2 lt (2.5 lt in Monterrey) and the label of Caffeine Free Coca-Cola Light is golden...

Here's a pic of the new Coke can in a Coke Zero truck billboard, it's really great, they made it like an attorneys firm ad in order to follow the "Coke sues Coke Zero" campaign...

I called the number on the side of that truck, (1-877-SUE-ZERO), and it is an actual number, with a recording of the ad for coke zero pretending to be a lawyer. you can then leave a message (i think).
