[D+147] – Working on a Sunday Afternoon with Coke

As I said in my post yesterday, I have recently started working on my internship report, which represents a good amount of work, although it is not so hard.

I bought some Coke earlier in the afternoon, and as you can see normal-sized Coke bottles are 65 cl ones (~22 oz), which is huuuge for us, Frenchies. I don’t know if the size in the USA is similar, so I hope some of you will share their knowledge about Coke bottle sizes by leaving a comment on this post !!

I have to say that, apart from the Casino, you can’t buy bottles in Poite-Noire. Well, I assume some places do sell them, but it’s rare. Actually, bottles are recycled. For instance, I brought 4 empty bottles to a restaurant I know and they gave me 4 Coke bottles bottles instead, for 2400 XAF. Bottles are interchangeable, which means that you can give some beer bottles and buy Coke.

As the bottles are recycled, you often find bottles which seem to be kind of old, often with oldish worn labels. One may think he’s drinking Nuka Cola, hopefully not the Quantum one… (I know this is a video-game reference but I know some people know what I’m talking about).

Keep in touch for more news soon, and don’t forget to leave a comment to tell the price and the size of Coke bottles in your country… !

    I think the normal sized bottles in the USA for single person is 20oz. Then anything above you would get in a fountain cup, which go up to 64oz in some places. Those are a lot of drink. Most people go with the 44oz fountain drink. Then when buying in big family bottles, you get 2 litre bottles. Sometimes you can get three litre bottles. Although I’ve not lived in the USA in six and a half years, and I’ve not been home in two, so things have probably changed! In France it took me awhile to get used to the 1.5litre bottles. Even in the UK I bought 2litre bottles. I think cans are pretty standard everywhere. Oh love the fallout Nuka Cola pic!

  2. México:
    Plastic PET presentacion: 500ml, 600ml, 1L, 1.5L, 2L, 2.5L and 3L from 0.34 € to 1.44 aprox
    Glass bottle(rare to find): 600 ml and 1.5L from 0.57€
    Can: 250ml 0.23€ and 600 ml 0.46€

      Wow that is so cheap! I wish it were that cheap in France. 1.5 litre of coke is 1.46€ – 1.60 I think, and 2litres is almost 2€

    • This is really cheap indeed. I agree with Stacey’s French prices, totally accurate of course !!
      Man i’m coming to Mexico lol =)

      • Soda gets an increment of taxes very often so they raise the final price as well, and people complaint a lot about it. Anyway, it records high sales.

        I would never pay 2€ for a soda!
