    The price of coke

    I just got lunch from Buns Bakery, and opted to buy a 1.5K bottle of coke for $2.50, rather than pay $2.80 for a 600ml bottle. This pricing seems a little retarded to me, but hey I'm not complaining about getting more for less.

    Do you see much of this? Why are 600mls so damned expensive nowdays?

    Because they are probably the most conveniently sized drink for when you're out, meaning people would probably pay more just to be able to carry it around.

    It's like that EVERYWHERE these days, $2.20 in Dunedin for a 600ml yet $1.70 or something for a 1.5L

    Lift+ is the same...$2.50+ per bottle yet you can get the 6 packs for $9

    Heh, if I actually drank that vile stomach & teeth rotting filth, I'd just carry around a big bottle seeing as you get more for less money.

    I was with one_red_god one time years ago, driving around on the north shore. We stopped at a servo, and he did exactly that, bought a small bottle for more than I paid for a big bottle. (This was that purple grape fanta stuff.)

    I thought I was all clever, but then I got a massive headache from all the ****ing sugar in it.

    Moral of the story, don't drink shithouse coca cola company fizzy drinks They ruin you.

    Some guy used to drink an entire 1.5L bottle of Fanta/Coke every day in my classics lecture.

    He was a big fat American as well.

    I drink a shiteload of diet coke at work.

    It gets really hot in the kitchen, and I have the choice between diet coke, full sugar crap, or water that tastes like lead mixed with arse.

    I don't drink coke but I do buy it for my b/f in the weekly shopping. I'm a tight ass and refuse to pay for a small 600ml bottle.

    I drink sprite zero.

    Most of the time I drink water.

    Also, it's Coke that screws over the little guy as their wholesale prices are in fact more expensive than they sell to supermarket chains and in fact, it's cheaper to buy from the supermarket than directly from Coke.

    Good ol' buy in bulk.

    What Coke gets in exchange for giving you a free fridge is that you must ONLY buy Coke products to put in that fridge to sell.
    Frucor have more flexible policy.

    That's only true when it's on special, hence corner shop owners buy their supplies from supermarkets during specials. It's not screwing the little guy asshole - Coke aren't going to have the same wholesale rate for an enormous buyer like a supermarket as for a little corner shop.

    There was one of those fat people programs on Aussie tv not so long ago, was about fat children or something. I only watched on episode, some girl was given a 600ml coke and a pack of arnots biscuits every morning for breakfast. I couldn't watch anymore, had to turn it off.

    Did you read the next bit I posted 'Good ol' buy in bulk'.
    And yes, they do with the way they approach things.
    My family's been in business down here for over 15+ years. I'd think I'd know more than you.

    And even if it's not on special, it's still cheaper from the supermarket.
    Any smart small food business owner knows that it isn't profitable to offer drinks to sell in the long run.

    Then explain why every small food business offers drinks for sale? Ever stop to think that your parents are complete retards, too stupid to realise that if it's cheaper to buy from supermarkets, perhaps that's where they should source their drinks?

    As a compliment to the other food they sell.
    The mentality of 'I'm buying this food from this place, they got drinks, I might as well buy a drink too'
    Also accounting for the running costs of the fridge and the bare minimum profit you get from selling a drink = non-profitable/ very bad in terms of cost effectiveness.
    The only reason peope sign with Coke a lot is because of that free fridge as buying/ hiring one is expensive for a small business owner.

    The only reason small food businesses sell drinks in because only as a compliment to the mian income that is their food they offer.

    LOL, so in other words, what you're saying is that selling drinks makes your business unprofitable, but you do it anyway? Man, you're as dumb as your dumbwad parents.

    That why we don't sell drinks.

    Nice try though. Next time don't jump to conclusions.
    Or yeah, a better insult would be nice too.
