  1. I miss bottles. Tall icy bottles dripping from the cold. Sixteen ounce. Not those terrible 6.5. Do you remember 8 packs of 16 ounce bottles? When I was about 19 or 20 I had a source for 3 pack cases at wholesale prices. $2.40 per case; deposit included. Ahh

      1. I have seen some little bottles of coke around. I am not sure what they are trying to accomplish. They make about as much sense as those 6 oz. bottles of beer sold in the mid 70’s.

  2. I’ve never seen Sprite boy before. I thought he looked a bit creepy in this ad – reminding me in fact of the climactic scene of ‘Don’t Look Now’ – but checked out the other links you provided to see if I felt differently. Nope. Creepy. Coke wasn’t quite the institution during my Scottish childhood that it clearly was in the US. A drink of Coca Cola was rare for me. My big brothers would treat me yo an ice cold bottle when made to take me along to their snooker club. It’s not quite the same from aluminum or plastic.

    1. Hmm. I haven’t heard of that movie. He is creepy; I’ll give you that. What did you drink when you went out to eat? We either had Coke or iced tea. And the high school vending machine had Diet Coke for all the girls trying to stay slim. Probably best that you didn’t start drinking it young. When I get it at restaurants, I always get a refill during the meal and one to go, so probably 100x the sugar I need.
