I recall them still being around for the '92 Olympics, then disappearing soon afterwards to be replaced by the 500ml bottles.

As for CIH's post, if you go to a corner shop now you're lucky to get change from £1.50!
£2 if you get a bottle instead!

^ Also available in B&M and DiscountUK!

I go to too many cheapo shops...

Also Barr make 500ml cans of their own-brand cola. Pretty decent and only 49p each!

Fairly sure a standard 330ml has that amount of sugar, unless they put less sweet stuff in the scottish nectar ?

I remember the hulk-sized cans of Coke. Used to get them years ago, and they lasted me ages. I do remember paying roughly 60p for one. You can't even buy a 550ml bottle of coke for that (£1.08 in ASDA :shock: you can get a 1 litre bottle of Pepsi for a quid!).

^ That's nothing, I regularly buy 2 litre bottles of Pepsi for 89p each!

Cheapest I have currently seen a 500ml Coke bottle is 79p in B&M - however they sell cans for 39p each so get two for 78p and you end up with more (660ml) for less!

^ It's just the Pepsi that's two for a pound.
Best deal you'll find on the Coke is those share size bottles for a quid each.
