I have a bone to pick with the Coca-Cola company today.
It was really cold yesterday morning, and I was sleepy, so stumbling out into the garage to obtain my diet coke for my caffeine starter for the day was more of a shock than usual. I grabbed two cans off of the refrigerator shelf – we have an extra refrigerator in the garage we use for storing drinks and other stuff – with my eyes half-open, stumbled back into the house and got ready to drink my drink, when I discovered that the winter design for the Coca-Cola can was too similar to the Diet Coke can. I know this, because I had grabbed one of each.
Here is a picture of the “normal” Coke can:
And here is a picture of a Diet Coke can with the winter Coca-Cola can:
That is just too much alike for people who are sleepy in the morning! Even half-asleep, I can tell the difference between the silver Diet Coke can and the bright red Coke can, but the silver and the white, not so much. I am hereby pleading with Coke to revert to the original red can. Does anyone think they will listen?
I hope so; we have a whole shelf in the refrigerator full of white Coke cans. I can’t decide if that was by design, or if someone else in my family also thought that the white cans were diet coke cans and not regular Coke.
Have a great day !
