    considering the "litros" and "azucar" - I'd say there's a good chance it is Mexican.

    That's a returnable 2 liter bottle, it may be from Argentina, Bolivia or Chile, here we have 2 liter Coke zero bottles but non-returnable... but we have regular Coke in that returnable 2 liter bottle too...

    A returnable 2 liter bottle! Interesting.

    I think the user who posted the picture may be from Chile.

    Speaking of two litres, how come here in the US Coke does not produce contour bottle 2 litres like in some other parts of the world?

    1.5 liter "Smooth Serve" bottles are contour.

    Thanks, but it's still not a 2 litre, which has been the same shape, well, for more than 25 years here in the states. So, again, why no 2 litres in contour shape in the US?

    Just a wild guess.
    Maybe it's due to the fact that
    a great deal of the core 2 ltr business is
    for loss leader. The extra touch of a contoured
    bottle is not needed to sell a 2 ltre on sale for
    89 cents. The core mass market consumer buys
    2 ltrs on hot sales. If the 2 ltr bottle had boobs and
    and a duck's ass on it, IMO only the one's on sale would sell.
    Don't worry, be happy. Meher Baba

    Mr. Zabe,

    If that is not the answer, I'd be shocked. That sounds like good logic.

    Question

    i can't be certain. but i'm pretty sure that coke was selling contour-shaped 2-liters in ohio at one time... maybe in the late 90s. can anyone back me up on this?
