Miniature Glass Coca-Cola Bottles Are No More

We love nostalgia don’t we?  Items we hold on to remind us of our youth and for most are attached to happy moments and/or reminds us of people we’ve lost or places we’ve been.  Whatever the case may be, we like to hold on by any means necessary.

But we’re going to have to let go of the old glass bottles of Coca-Cola…the 6.5-ounce bottle, that is.  A plant in Winona, Minnesota, had been recycling the bottles since 1932; refilling the bottles and sending them back out. The Vice President and General Manager for the company, LeRoy Telstad, said the last run was Tuesday, October 9, 2012.

There was a 20 cent deposit on the bottle and now they will be sold for $20 online starting Monday, October 15.  Wow! Doesn’t take long for consumerism to jump up on nostalgia and try to make a profit does it?  The company tried as long as they could to make the bottle, but now it’s old and they would have to replace the whole line.
