Yes. It's on the end of the box, so you can't see it from this picture, though. (I took this picture on Friday 10/31).

Yeah last year Coke Zero got the polar bears, which I prefer over Santa(too close to Satan). I drink Coke Zero so hopefully it gets it again.

Last year Coke Zero had the odd-looking Christmas ornaments on the packaging.

yeah. you're right. the coke holiday packaging last year was very underwhelming. they were going for that "sophisticated" look... but it just looked dull.

So that was 2 years ago with the Polar Bears? EDIT: Yes! BOOM!

the polar bears look great on the black packaging and are consistent with the "masculine" packaging. last year's "ornaments" were boring.

Fusion was talking about the Football packaging, and I was in Auburn, AL today and they've changed their packaging to match the two Alabama football teams: Alabama Crimson Tide and Auburn Tiger.

i guess they're going for the simple, sophisticated look again this year (except for Coke and Coke Zero).

the Coke Classic santa looks good. the others are kind of boring.

ps--thanks for the pics. :)

Wow! thanks amyers for the pics of the 2 liter bottles!...

BTW, where are those contour-bottle-shaped 2 liter bottles available?, because when I went to San Diego last august I didn't saw the 2 liter Coke bottles with that shape... only with the regular one...

and I think I already asked that question but... what shape have the rest of the brands?, also the contour-bottle one?

They were first rolled out by Coca-Cola United in Birmingham, AL and Chattanooga, TN but earlier this year Coca-Cola Enterprises decided they wanted to test them in ALL of Alabama. So, they're available in a market not too too far from where I live.

Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Coca-Cola CF, Diet Coke CF, Coke Zero are all in the contour bottle. Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper are in the new Dr. Pepper swirl bottle, VAULT is in it's VAULT bottle, Sprite, Sprite Zero are both in the Sprite bottle, and the other flavors such as Minute Maid, Ginger Ale, etc are all in the contour bottle I believe (I'll have to check that)

Looks like these 12pk have a gold border around them - is that just the picture? Ours don't have that.

It's caffeine free Classic. The regular Classic doesn't have the gold border.

Is it Super Bowl or college football? The 12 packs (wrap, not cans) here have a football theme that I think is for college football.

is there an email address i can write to at coca-cola, so i can state my displeasure with this?
