Found a pic of a Diet Coke plus in the new 20 oz. bottle at flickr... it looks similar to the one we have of 600 ml Coke Zero... does anybody have the new bottles in your area?

but we are going to them on all flavors. Its sorta like a Vault bottle, but a little more squatier. I believe its going to roll out in the fall. We had to get a list of stores together that still had necktracker, because the bottle will not fit in them.

From the pics it does not really look like the contour bottle anymore, it looks like the bottom is smaller than the top. We will get used to it though i'm sure. It was the same way when the plastic contour bottles first came out in 1993 or 1992 I forget. Kinda looks more like a sports drink bottle.

We have had the new 20 OZ. bottle in Portland OR. for almost two months.

I was in L.A. last month and was surprised that they did not have the new bottle yet

In addition we have had a new cap on the 20 OZ. and 1 LTR. Bottles that looks like an old bottle cap.

It is plastic of course and a little shorter in profile to the old style cap.

The cap showed up several months ago on the regular style bottle before the new bottle came out.

They are probably similar to the new plastic bottles that Nestle-Ozarka water are now using. They had a big ad printed on the shrinkwrap on the last 24 pack I bought saying these new bottles use 30% less plastic than their older bottles. I like them, they are easier for kids with small hands to get a grip on.

Coke also uses grip bottles for Powerade now.

Same with Seattle; our 20-oz Coke comes from Oregon.

We've had those new caps since December. Another thing about them is that the inside threading is different. Forget about using one to replace the missing cap from your Pepsi bottle becuase they'll only work on certain Coke bottles.

Swire has had the new bottles for about as long as Seattle. They also changed to the new caps a couple months ago, but only at the Idaho plant from what I have seen.

Lehrkind's Coke in Montana switched to the new bottles and caps just a few weeks ago.

Silver Spring, MD (SS) just started using the new bottles. Still using the old caps, though.

We had Classic new bottles rolling of the trucks today. Is this going to be for all flavors?

Here in Mexico, the new caps has been arrived but only at Mexico City...

here's a pic of a Diet Coke plus that I found at flickr, with the new bottle and the new cap:

I would think it would be in most flavors, I would doubt it would be in Sprite and VAULT and maybe not Fanta because they use their own bottles.

it's kind of ugly...

I have to say, the pictures so far don't do the bottle justice - it does look a lot better in person.

It's also lighter than the current 20oz bottle - you can tell the difference right away.

I'd say we'll see all the colas and diet colas in this bottle, not sure about Sprite and the other flavors.

i like the idea of a "grippy" bottle. the only thing is... i don't really hold my bottle at the bottom... where the grippy part is. i generally hold it in the middle. am i alone in this?!?

Yes, I hold mind in the middle as well. I just think Coke is trying to do this "bottle change thing like Pepsi did but trying to do it better. It's a great change and I'm proud Coke did it. It's the first change to the contour bottle since it came out in '94

The label change is independent of the bottle change for Coke Zero - we've had those new labels for a few weeks, and the new bottles just showed up today.

It's called "Grip It Bottle", which saves the company 4 cents a case.

I finally got to see one of these for real, from Coke New York (Maspeth.) I was a bit surprised by the "plain" top above the label, without the grooves. Looks a bit unfinished. I do like how "Coca-Cola" is embossed in the lower part. Overall, an interesting interpretation of a bottle that first appeared in 1915 :).
