    And here it is...The new Coca Cola Classic Can

    This is how I spent my Saturday, going from store to store looking for the new coke can! I found them hidden in a 12 pack fridge pack. The can looks great, and for the first time in a long time, 2 dynamic ribbons are on the can. Enjoy the pics!






    Vs. a 1976 can


    Vs. a recent can

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
