No Coca-Cola today

16 Sep 2007 56
Translation: "Dear customer, Coca-Cola has increased extremely the cost price of the 1.5 litre Coca-Cola and Fanta bottles without a demonstrable reason. Albert Heijn does not want to increase its prices as a consequence. Therefore this product is temporarily not available in our range of products. As an alternative we offer you one of the other Cola brands and a special offer of certain 1 litre Coca-Cola & Fanta bottles. You can recognise these from the shelf cards. Coca-Cola & Fanta 1 litre, several varieties, 3 bottles now € 2,79 Albert Heijn" Note: Coca-Cola had already increased its prices from about € 1 to € 1,50 for 1.5 litre to let the customer pay for a new kind of bottle. My advice: don't drink it, it is bad for your teeth.
