    oh God...countless clickings for zero results

    I'm a complete party pooper as I just walk past (don't like fizzy drinks of any kind, probably why I still have my own teeth :p)! But want to take my two nieces this year.

    In Glasgow it's usually at St Enoch, beside the Nando's/Tesco Express etc.

    Must remember to stay clear of Cardiff this year after the havoc it caused down there last time. 4 bloody hours I was stuck in traffic on the way home!

    when my mam died I found all this type of stuff in the loft it is now in my loft

    So why is it being blasted from the email thread. We know it's coming but need to find out where and when.

    It's a truck! It's there to prise money out of pockets! It's a promotion by a multinational selling drinks containg sugar or chemicals. It's promoting obesity. Stop getting sucked in!

    It's also promoting a festive spirit which seems to be wasted on you...

    Not in Nottingham??

    No northern ireland I see

    Can anyone actually explain what this is all about? A truck driving through your local town? Doesn't sound that exciting to me

    the furthest north is Dundee??? There is a lot of Scotland north of there!!! to get to.Dundee is about 2.5-3 hours minimum grrrrrrrr

    5 years looking for them dam Flamedeers even at 11-12 pm at night and Never been a winner not even £2 voucher

    Only 3 places in Scotland are we not getting a visit from Coca Cola lorry this year , we have had in previous years

    It is stationary... You get some free coke and a photo by the truck.. Its just to add to the festive spirit but don't go out of your way...

    Not stopping at bluewater???

    There must be two trucks not just the one

    I agree!! A few years back it came to Elgin. That was dropped but at least it still went to Aberdeen and Inverness!! Absolute disgust!

    no havant again and no havant last year why did they stop southampton is like 50-60 mins away

    Not in Nottingham??


    So glad it's not in Nottingham. It caused chaos and traffic standstill at rush hour last year.

    ​not necessarily. 2 yr ago it was at breahead

    Coca Cola in Ireland is a different division (CCHBC) to mainland CCE. We'll get the stupid walk in snow globe as usual no doubt but as CCHBC is Greek owned they can't even afford to wash their trucks, never mind run the Christmas truck.
    It's a 3rd world country you know (Northern Ireland I mean).

    Bah humbug.

    Is N.Ireland not part of the UK?
