    Coke is out in full force with their trademark Santa, and for the first time, 8oz bottles are wrapped in plastic (like the Powerade Nitro and Matrix flavors), rather than ACL.

    Pepsi is pushing Cat in the Hat, and Canada Dry is pushing Liquid Loot.

    Our sales center only received one pallet of the 8oz 6 packs, from Needham Heights (NH), and they were gone in 3 days! I hear we aren't getting any more, which is really a dumb business move, imho.

    Coke had 8oz glass bottles shrinkwrapped in plastic in the US last year.

    Blank 6 pack holders, that is really lame.

    I have a 1997 X-mas bottle from FW, it's good to see they are still producing glass. East cost CCE divisions have Needham Heights (NH) and Marietta (MR), and Philly (PH) produces 10oz deli glass Coke/Sprite/Diet -- they buy their 8oz Classic from NH.

    I've seen glass Schweppes from HO (Indy, right?)

    When I was in Kentucky, I bought deli glass from MK (Middlesboro) and I think EH (Coca-Cola United, Birmingham AL).

    Now where I am confused is code WK. Ale-8-1 uses this code for their stuff (Winchester, Kentucky), but it's also used on 8.4oz KMX.. I really doubt they are the same plant, though.

    Indy (HO) makes 10oz deli glass, although the 8oz line was shut down in the spring of 2003.
