I love the Coca Cola advert but when I see the truck it wasn’t all that but I’m sure there’s people and kids that will really enjoy seeing it.
The que for the free little can of drink is not worth the wait

Personally agree - I wasn't keen on it but it got the kids excited, we went early and had a picture taken and no queues.

good job, there isn't an obesity problem in Liverpool/UK - only 30% of our 11-year-olds are obese.

Only two Wales locations and both of those south, Swansea and Cardiff. Won't be travelling to Liverpool from North Wales to see it.

Pathetic.

Fake sugars are far worse.

Everything in moderation, and lets not compare ourselves to America, our sugars are beet or sometimes cane, America is full of corn syrup which is known to interfere with appetite control

Probably both the standard and diet i expect its those little cans you find for £1 for 4 in the booze section of the supermarket.

Pretty sure that truck is just a scania, peter builts aren't legal in this country really not for haulage use anyway without a lot of faff, the nearest would be the replica mini used to advertise bayformers. So its not really the truck its a truck that has a sort of similar shaped cab.

Bring back the pepsi challenge not only did you get free cans you got a bag of M&Ms if you got it right

Why? The truck used in the iconic advertising is illegal in this country, too long and wrong wieght distribution over the axel so crappy turning.

To have one of those yanky things you'd need to modify it and use only short trailers

Yer must be the coca-cola truck. Not the 3 Mcdonalds we have within minutes of each other. 2 of them are on the same street. Or the fact there seems to be a fast food reserant on every street corner these days.

And the fact certain people eat and drink everything they see. I firmly blame individuals - just don't eat and drink so much that you become obese.

Millions manage it.

Eat a well balanced diet, have treats and do some exercise, every excuse they can come back with is nonsense, Money - you can eat healthy just as cheap. Taste, healthy food tastes just a good.

Its on the person/their parents.

Kids I do have sympathy for.

No idea. The ones with the highest profit, &/or with the lowest manufacturing costs, if I was guessing.

I don't see the attraction to the promotional tour at all.
