    Abarta Coke owns the Bethlehem PA operations as well as Buffalo, Cleveland and Coatesville PA. They recently upgraded their Buffalo facility (code TW.. it's actually in Tonawanda NY) to produce 24oz 6pks. They ship them to the Bethlehem and Coatesville warehouses - I've seen them in Walmart and Turkey Hill Minit Marts (c-store chain).

    They are also spottily available in Maryland and probably more available in Virginia.. from CCE's Richmond VA plant (code RM).

      Thanks for the additional info fusion...I thought these were Abarta products, but the caps are marked "Bottled by a member of the Coca-Cola Bottlers' Association," which I thought was the mark of CCE. The code is, as you note, TW.

      Turkey Hill was the store I found these in.

      I remember buying 16-oz refillable Cokes in this market in the early 1990's. The crowns were marked "Bottled by Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Bethlehem/Cleveland/Buffalo (Tonawanda)". I don't think I've seen the name Abarta on anything but cans.
      Drink responsibly....drink soda!

        No, that is not a mark of CCE. All caps say "Bottled by a member...." on the top, atleast all the caps I've ever seen unless they have their own custom caps.

          CCB is an association of all the Coke bottlers in the US (plus a few other countries). Within the past few years, most, if not all CCE cans and bottlecaps have switched to identifying the bottler/canner as "a member of the Coca-Cola Bottlers Association." Most of the other bottlers have switched as well. That is actually part of the reason why I've done so much research on the production codes, since you can't tell from looking at the package as to who filled it.

                            they actually used the mycokerewards banner on the main graphic of the bottle? the coke classic bottle is filled too high? this must have been rushed and a last minute edition.
