Thread: Coca Cola's new 2-quart plastic bottles!

    Default Coca Cola's new 2-quart plastic bottles!

    Coca Cola's new 2-quart plastic bottles!

    The new bottles are shaped like overgrown coke bottles of old rather than the
    straight shaped cylinder.

    A problem I encountered with the new one is that it's taller and won't fit on
    any fridge shelves that I arranged to my liking ages ago. The quickest fix
    was to adjust a door shelf were it fits very nicely.

    So the problem actually backfired into a better solution, freeing up more
    shelf space.

    At first I was mad, now I'm glad. ))

    I use old Gatorade bottles, wash them out really well and fill them
    with good old STL tap water!!

    STL has among the best tap water in the nation!

    An even better solution? Give up drinking soda. Keep cold water in a
    bottle in the fridge.

    It's better for your health, cheaper, and non-addictive.

    What'll you do when they begin making the 2 liter size, those extra ounces
    may require further adjustment.

    There were two spare "rungs" at the bottom of the door (side by side) that I
    didn't feel like using so I wouldn't have to bend down that far for stuff.
    The door shelves housed all the many bottles of condiments, dressings, etc.,
    which I did have to re-shoehorn around, throwing out some really ancient
    stuff in the process to make room.

    Only wish I'd thought of it sooner. :-/

    gloria p,

    I drink water all day long! A few chugs of coke every so often relieves the
    boredom that is H2O.

    Me too, if soda consumption depended on me the factories would be
    shuttered. About the only soda I ever liked was ginger ale once in a
    great while and is impossible to find one that actually tastes like ginger.

    I never have. I'm quite aware of the temporal nature of old Gatorade
    bottles. I buy a quart of Gatorade every once in a while to get a new
    one, and wash my two existing bottles that I use at least once a week
    in hot spapy water, very thoroughly.

    If I'm really bored, I'll make some Solar tea with one of the many
    selections of Celestial Seasonings and refrigerate that.

    I gave up soft drinks over 20 years ago and seldom need any help at the
    dentists office.
