The tricks of Coca Cola

They are selling the 45cl bottle at the same price as the 50cl. Just saw it today. They thought the consumer would not notice. These US Multis are criminals!!!

Pretty good, I did not really expect you to take note of this before they're down on 30cl.

Hot off the press.

Looks like at least one consumer didn't notice for nine months or so.

Re: The tricks of Coca Cola

Coke is poison and it shouldn't be a part of anyone's diet, not to mention all the plastic bottles it injects into our ecosystem.

They did that only in Switzerland. One fell for it - an Australian. Next time they'll do it there - 95% success rate to be expected?

You've just noticed because you've been here too long, 22yards, lucky devil, things here start rubbing off on you.

No. Just noticed because I always buy the 50ml.


It's another example of my highly developed observation skills!

I think you are onto something there. They appear now also to remove some essential ingredients from the coca leaves before adding these, reducing the beneficial effects of this drink, but still OK I suppose if you only want some sweet, brown coloured fizzy water.

Re: The tricks of Coca Cola

There is around 40g of Carbohydrates in that smaller bottle. The recommended dietary allowance for total carbohydrates is 130 grams daily. So almost 1/3 of your daily allowance.

Not only did these bar-stewards hijack Christmas, they are killing us.

So by diminishing the content of the bottle, they actually do us some good. Now how do you like that, omtatsat?

Life is all about perspective, mate.

You don't seem to have observed the content of the bottles very closely.
