    What is two or four more ounces? I seriously don't see the point of the 20, 22, and 24 oz. bottles. When are we going to see 21 or 23 oz.? THE NEGLECTED INCRIMENTS!!!

    No, anyway, I think maybe 30, or 40 would sell well, but who cares about an extra ounce or two?

    Bigger is not always better. I would rather buy smaller size bottles, like 12oz. I might drink more than one, but they stay chilled easier and get chilled faster. Why can't the big three bottle their stuff in long neck 12oz's like the beer companys do in 12 pack boxes?

    I went to a KFC on my lunch break today, and they've started selling a new size drink. I'm not sure what size it is, but the cup's almost as big as my head! Do you really want a drink so big you have to move it around with a furniture dolly?

    I believe that Consolidated is testing this out or will soon be with Fridge Packs of 12 oz bottles. They do have them in Dasani as it is.

    consolidated will be producing fridgepack 12oz bottles sometime in july. we were told we would have coke, diet coke, cf diet coke and sprite.
    we will also have dr. pepper and sundrop in the areas that we carry them. I believe they will be a limited time only package.

    Crap. I will be in Consolidated territory in two weeks, I guess I'll miss the launch of this package.

    I read somewhere where CCNNE launched the 12oz CSD package earlier this year. Never heard how they did with it, though.

    CCE is expanding the 24oz 6 pack testing into new flavors. Nestea Cool arrived in the warehouse this past week, and I believe that Vanilla Coke and Minute Maid Lemonade may be soon to follow.

    24oz have arrived in Springfield, Missouri, from plant CV (Cleveland TN). So far, only Coke, Diet, Sprite and Dr Pepper (no diet) are available at 2.50 at wal*mart and up to 3.19 elsewhere.

    The DP is in a 24 oz angle bottle as well, undoubetdly to counter Pepsi's 24 oz offering.

    Pepsi though did launch 12 pks of 16.9 oz bottles, and honestly they're not selling many of them. Coke is still kicking rear with the 24 oz bottles.

    I think CV runs most everything Coke has ever made or sold and in every possible size. I've seen 8 oz cans, 12 oz and 24 oz bottles from them.

    I have seen the 24OZ bottles from (CV) in Miami a few weeks ago at Publix. They were $2.50 but they did not have the rights to DP.

    Pepsi here sells 24 oz. 6 packs everywhere, but has 12 pack 1/2 liters at Wal-Mart only of just Pepsi, Mountain Dew, and Sierra Mist.

    Central still only has 1/2 liter 6 packs, of Coke, Diet Coke, CF Diet Coke, Vanilla Coke, Sprite, Seagram's, Nestea Cool, MM Lemonade, and Dasani. Although I swore I saw 24 oz. Dasanis here somewhere.
