an iconic drink- and it tastes fantastic- especially from those glass bottles

Advantages: the design of the can's, the taste, everything
Disadvantages: 2L bottles are boring to look at, not as nice as the other bottle designs in their portfolio
what is it about those glass bottles that improves the taste of coke so much, is it the rarity? the novelty? the fact they're disappointingly small? they're more expensive? or do they really just savour the best to put in those bottles.
Even out of a can, a 500ml bottle, a 1.25L, 2l or 3l bottle it still tastes great though, sickly sweet caramel and a perfect level of bubbliness. The can's look great, so do the slightly larger bottles which emulate the classic shape of the glasses, the 2L bottles aren't so aesthetically pleasing, opting for the same flat sided shape as every other 2L bottle, I like the 3L bottles though for their sheer size and epic unwieldiness- try drinking straight out the bottle without pouring it all over your face.
Coke takes a while to go flat- so buy the biggest bottle you can and you won't need to worry for a few days.
You've no doubt tasted coke, so you already either like it or you don't- for me, pepsi is no comparison, and pepsi don't make me think of chrismas either, in fact pepsi just makes me think of being terrified on that big rollercoaster in Blackpool
Summary: coca cola- the 'real thing'
