Na, le explico a los extrangeros las diferencias entre los productos Coca Cola, que escribirlo
cada vez es muy cansino :). Sorry, solo lo hare en Ingles, esto de traducir
quema demasiadas neuronas.
Ei !! Si teneis informacion que me falte o veis algo que esta mal, decirmelo a ver si puedo tener una web con informacion real sobre todo este mundillo de las coca colas y demas. Ya se que el mapa de Espaņa esta mal (Cantabria), pero es lo que hay.
Hi, here I will explain, the differences that exist between every factory sign of every coca cola product crowncap, and the different regions that you can find in also every coca cola product.
First, say, which are the actual and past coca cola products that I can remember.
We can idenify easily a Coca Cola Product (now CCP), because they writte always the sub-company name and address in the cap. (Except in Burn that is a drink like Red Bull, and Aquabona or Bonaqua that are waters).
So, the coca cola products are in alphabetic order: (Latest version avaliable in Dec 2005)

Light al limon
Exceptions Burn and Bonaqua
It's good to know that Bitter Drim was changed in the year 2004 for MareRosso, Finley was changed at 2000 (???) for Nordic Mist, Fanta Piņa disapeared in 1998 (???), and I don't know if Frutopia is sold actually, probably were changed for Minute Maid in the 2003. And TAB I was surpised when I found this cap because I thought it disapeared long ago.
We can actually find seven different sub-companies that bottles Coca Cola, but it's botteled in nine different regions. In the past there were factories at least in 16 regions.
These are the factories that disapeared.
You have all the factories marked in this map (aprox).
The next step is to explain the "small differences" that we have between the same cap of the same region maid by different "Factory of Crowns". In Spain actually, the most usual factory signs (logos of crown cap factories) are three. E = Eurotap, U = Unic - Jose Combalia, Z = Zapata (two years ago TCI = Tapon Corona Iberica) But we can rarely find some other Factory Signs, P, n, CCC, R (I will search for the logos).
Look at these Coca-Colas from Barcelona
If you look carefully, you will see that all of them are different between all the others.
- The first two (E and U) for example, have the logo of the Factory Sign in the front face (the circled logo).
But Z and N doesn't.
- The letters of "Cobega" in Z (the small mark), doesn't start in the same line like "Envasado", and "n" one beggins like E and U but haven't got a logo in the front face.
- Letters of the street "Avda. Guipuzcoa", in Z cap is written C/GUIPUZCOA (in Italics and C/ instead of Avda.), and the numbers in E,U, and "n" you have 163-175 but with Z you have 163 AL 175 and also the postal code 08020.
- And if you look at them carefully in your hands, you will see that "n" cap is sensible darker than the others. And U letters are normally a bit more bold (and the paint in U normally is easily damaged).
It will continue in the next days ... :).
