Here's more pics of some novelties we had here in the last months in Mexico, first here's a pic of four new sodas that were released a month ago: Fanta Zero, Manzana Lift Zero, Fresca Zero, and Sprite Zero (actually this one was on sale before as Sprite 0, but it was renamed Sprite Zero, and now we have it in 600 ml size, we only had it in 12 oz. cans before ), all four taste great and the taste is too similar to their regular versions, all of them have aspartame and ace-k, no cyclamates... like in U.S., U.K. and Germany, now we have our flavored Zero sodas!


And now here's a pic of some stuff I got from Queretaro, here's a 3 liter bottle of Coke, this size is only available in few areas... OMG, it's sooo big...


also I brought this tiny 250 ml bottle of Coke with plastic cap... at first sight the bottle looks like made of glass, but actually it's made of plastic too...

Also I brought from Queretaro this local sodas that had been a tradition for more than 50 years in Queretaro.... Victoria sodas and Victoria purified water, that are also on sale at mexican grocery stores in U.S., here's three bottles: Pineapple, tangerine and orange flavors; there's also lime, sangria, grapefruit, and diet versions...


I went to Leon,Guanajuato too, and I brought this: the first one is a bottle of Ciel finamente gasificada (sparkling) with a hint of Mandarin (sweetened with Splenda as you can see), the second one is Fanta Pineapple and the third one is Fanta Grape (both are so cheap there!) between 3 and 4 pesos! (30 and 40 cents)


Here's a can of Seagram's Ginger Ale, now by The Coca-Cola Company, previously Seagram's mixers were bottled by PBG Mexico, but now is produced by the Coca-Cola system at Mexico, while PBG Mexico now bottles Canada Dry mixers...

Here at Aguascalientes, it was released last friday Sprite, Fanta, Fresca and Manzana Lift in half liter plastic bottles, here's a pic of a 500 ml Manzana Lift bottle (empty BTW), now with a new label... and now it's Manzana Lift Classic, amazing!.


Here's two grapefruit drinks: the first one is Fresca Lado B (B side), specially made for mixing it with tequila or rum, and the second one is Ciel Aquarius grapefruit (now called just Ciel grapefruit)


But not everything is Coke, here's two cans of mexican Dr. Pepper now with the awesome new logo, they look exactly like the american ones but you can see they're mexicans because of the "Cont. Net. 355 ml" legend, now we have the diet version too, but it's so hard to find it... both are kosher...


that's all for today, more pics soon, any comments or questions will be welcome, regards! :D

Ramon - Nice pics.

I have a question - do they still have the Pepsi 1-liters in glass down there? Someone gave me one a few years ago. Reminded me of the Canadian "bullet" 1.5 litre bottles from the mid 1980s. Here's a picture of both:

Thanks Andy!

No, here in the city where I live, Pepsi never came out in 1 liter glass bottles, probably it was released at some areas from the north of Mexico; although Pepsi used to had a returnable plastic liter bottle but it was discontinued here, I think it's still available at Guadalajara...

In fact, the only returnable size available of Pepsi products here is the 12 oz. glass bottle, and it's only available at restaurants.
