I see there is new plastic 1,5l coke available at my local spar.
Haven't seen it before. Was on special for 8,99.

Was at a takeaway joint today...their fancy instore menu had 500ml cooldrink on it...but they only had the new 440ml versions in their fridge. Made me wonder how many joints now have to change menus and instore signs at a cost. And how many complaints they get in the meanwhile advertising 500ml but giving the customer 440ml.

never really understood why we stopped using glass bottles? maybe its all the swimming pool regulations?
We never stopped.

You just don’t find them in the big supermarkets but rather just the corner shops.

Didn't you get cans that were 440ml?
So basically they selling now cans for the price of bottles?

I still can't believe their isn't a Facebook group complaining about this entire thing, seems very unfair.

Wait till people have to fork out R20/440ml at the R21 One Stop.
