Does everyone have these? They're new here, and only available in a few places so far.....
Lipstick on a pig.
I like that they combine the quicker cooling of cans with recloseability. The bottle shape is cute but not really practical. What would be slick is a stubby shape that is closer to a can's proportions, where the cap would nest in the indentation on another container's underside, so you could stack two high in the fridge.
Kind of a non issue for me. I used to drink a lot of soda and have recently limited myself to maybe one a week. Even when I did drink a bunch I wanted it cold, very carbonated, and with lots of ice, still do. The thought of nursing warm, flat soda from one of those 20 ounce plastic bottles all day just seems gross to me.
Coors does the same thing.. And Bud too I believe.
why cant they be carbonated or chilled?
i dont get it.
a container that cant be chilled or hold pressure is a huge fail
Yeah, I first saw them 4 or 5 years ago at a concert: Coors, Bud and Miller in reclosable aluminum bottles...I opted for a Vodka and Tonic in a plastic cup instead...
Been out for a long time, not available in a lot of places. I could only find them at some hotel in Atlanta ( years ago ) and a cupcake shop that used to be in the mall here.
I think they're cool, but nothing beats glass.
These are 8.5 ounce....
These can be chilled, and they hold pressure. They're like an aluminum version of the old original Coke small bottle.
aluminum beats glass.
no light or oxygen can get through aluminum.
aluminum cans are the best way to store beer
these aluminum bottles are almost as good as cans
except O2 can get in under the caps even when sealed.
im not sure soda oxidizes as quickly as beer though
so aluminum may be overkill.
but the fact that they are lighter than bottles is a great thing.
these new aluminum cans/bottles are coated so no beer/soda touches
the metal which used to create can-tinge back in the day.
a lot of people wont touch aluminum because of their experiences in the 1970s and 1980s.
especially the 12oz Mexican coke. Real sugar.....no greasy tasting HFCS
You could bottle it in a gold-lined mason jar.....it's still poison.
Ever drink a beer from a metal bottle? Yes, it's possible to make Bud Light or Miller Lite taste WORSE!!!
That stuff was made to be bottled in a glass bottle. If you go down south (Memphis for example) you can still get a 16oz bottle of Coke made with real sugar and not artificial corn syrup sweetener.
Of course it is. So is beer.
But every now and then, an ice cold Mexicali coke just hits the spot.
I tried one a couple of these and didn't like it at all. I don't know what the difference between it and the can are, but it was almost like I could taste the aluminum.
Both bottles were terrible.
The only Coke made with real sugar in a glass bottle I can find here in the South is made in Mexico. You can find real sugar Coke in two liter bottles around Passover but why bother when half an hour after opening a two liter starts going flat.
I'm waiting for New Coke to make a comeback.
You can buy Mexican coke all over the US.
Me, too....that was the only period of time when Coca-Cola actually tasted good (except for when I was a kid and Coke came in the small green glass bottles, but I think that's mainly nostalgia....)......
