When Cherry Coke looked like this…

This can takes me back. It was the mid-90s and I was just entering double figures. I was on my first away from home school trip and in the canteen area there was a vending machine. If I remember correctly it featured this same design.

Fizzy drinks were for me something I would only have as a treat, they were a real rarity. But here I was away from home, with spending money and sure enough by the end of the week I was hooked.

I can’t say for sure that this was my first taste and the flavour of Cherry Coke is definitely a bit Marmite, you either love it or hate but I am definitlely in the former and in my head I link it all to this can design.

A can of Cherry Coke

Why Coca-cola used such an off-brand design is a mystery but it certainly appealed to me at that young age and the vivid design is still sitting vividly in my memory today.

These days of course it is Coca-Cola Cherry and fits in with a ton of other flavour combinations all look the same and perhaps less appealing to the ten year old still in me.
