Coca de Mayo- 05.04.07
On the list of things i blame the internet for - add this case of Mexican Coca Cola - $17.99 for 24 at Costco, in those fabulously irresistible classic glass bottles - and REAL SUGAR. Not that i can’t get these at the corner store around the… corner. Or the little taco place less than a block away… but i blame Digg followed by YumSugar and also SFist. In one of those morning RSS skims i hear, “Digg says there are cases of mexican coke at costco!”… Figures that when my response is “But which costco, you don’t even know if they are in SF”, that the only ones the articles know have them for sure are here. So a day early - FELIZ CINCO DE MAYO. Costco and the marketing frenzy for this holiday are in full force, and between the “beers of mexico” cases and the bulk sized frozen burritos and tortilla chips… its true, you can find bulk cases of the *real sugar* coca cola bottles. More silly pictures below, couldn’t help myself - on design details, i love that bottle made of bubbles graphic.
