Not seen 2ltr for a quid since last year 😞
Iceland do 3L bottles for 3.50 for two as well, pretty much the same price.
Good price for these, however I hate the fact that these went up in price - coincided with the sugar tax, these don't have any sugar!

The costs in retail have increased dramatically over the last couple of years, a lot of the £1 promotions have become unviable and would have disappeared anyway
Farmfoods do 3 x 3L bottles for £5, so ever so slightly cheaper but this is still a good deal.

Care to explain why? - just seems artificially increased and using the sugar tax as an excuse to do so...
1.75l coca cola full fat £1 here in manchester - for those who prefer it over pepsi max

Competition and low inflation had kept £1 price point deals going for longer than was really viable.

Despite the headline rate of inflation being low to the consumer, cost inflation for retailers has been massive.

Living wage has increased staff costs by 30% (not a bad thing but the cost still has to be paid by someone)

Work place pensions a further 3%

Electricity costs up 60% in last three years

Business rates up 20%, a lot more for some.

Waste removal costs up 50%

The list goes on.....

The £1 price point had been King in retail for many years, but you are going to see retail try to move away from it as margins need to increase.

But full fat Coke isnt the same to Pepsi max. Pepsi max has no sugar unlike Coke. Personally I think the full fat Coke leaves a horrible taste in your mouth, it's just pure sugar!

A lot of the points don't quite add up. The raw ingredients for carbonated drinks remain the same, the price of electricity for consumers has risen, however industry prices have remained the same (and have been reduced in some cases). The only real factor to consider is the cost of oil - that literally drives everything else. Oil prices have actually halved since 2014.
I guess that leaves salary & pension contribution - there has been 1% change in the same period that oil has had a 50% change. Given that detail I conclude that the shelf price has been artificially raised - the excuse given to consumers has been put down to the sugar tax... (Why does 2L of sugar filled fizzy drink cost the same as 2L of sugar free fizzy drink?)
The evidence for artificial pricing is present (I think the last fine was £116M). The problem with consumer goods is once a price point is raised and consumption remains it won't come down again.
Anyway enough detail for HotUKdeals...
Good offer but same price as Iceland Food Warehouse normal price for the last year where they do 8 packs for £9.
Yes.
Always used to buy at 99p a bottle. Have been holding of due to recent price increase but this is the best option at £1.12 a bottle.
Can understand why costs could have gone up recently. Just wish companies like Pepsi stopped spending billions on advertising 😳
Then they could drop the price.
Surely a brand this big has enough staying power to continue to sell.
I would prefer no advertising and a much cheaper retail price
This still live at HB?
