New "designer" Coke cans

Filed in: Misc.

This morning I discovered all the Coke cans at a petrol station near work had been replaced. Instead of the usual standard-sized cans, they'd turned into tall thin things, which looked like slightly larger energy drink cans. Whereas the old cans held 355ml, the new ones held 300ml but were more expensive. After a spot of googling, I found this article.

Consider me boggled. Is it possible for a soft drink to jump the shark?

This is a scam. A blatant scam. But not unique to NZ. I have a Coke can from Malaysia or Thailand or some equally humid Indo-Chinese nation that is 'energy drink' sized. Of course, the answer to this obvious bullshit corporate-fascist trickery is to buy the 1.25 ltr or 2 litre bottles. Cans suck unless you're thirsty.
