It's Mine

We got our shipment of beverages for the break room at work yesterday and I did my normal scan for new cans.  That's when I saw these colorful Diet Coke cans.

I looked it up online and found Diet Coke has a new promotion called "It's Mine."  It's a pretty lengthy article, but to sum it up Diet Coke created 36 base designs for their new 12 oz glass contour bottles.  Using some fancy HP software, the base designs were used to automatically create millions of new graphics.  A select number of designs will appear on their other items such as 12 oz cans, 16 oz cans, etc.

So if you're really into collecting, have fun.  Go out and see how many of those bottle graphics you can find.  I'll stick with collecting cans.

Kickstart Valentine's Day (year 2)

I knew the fourth round of Mtn Dew Kickstart energy drink flavors recently launched, so I've been patiently waiting to find them and buy them.  And then I got my chance yesterday while running around with the family.

The new cans are 12 oz slim cans, the same as the last batch of flavors.  These four are:

     1. Blueberry Pomegranate
     2. Blood Orange
     3. Watermelon
     4. Pineapple Orange Mango

I normally don't drink energy drinks, but I'll have these on standby in case of emergency.  I'm curious to try some of these flavors.

02/22/16 Update
I made a mistake.  In the above post I mentioned Pineapple Orange Mango was one of the four new flavors.  NOPE!  That was a flavor from the last round of flavors.  The 4th one is actually Midnight Grape.  Someone gave me the grape can over the weekend, so now I have all four new flavors.

But with answers come more questions.  The three new cans I bought were 12 oz slim cans.  The fourth flavor is in a 16 oz can.  Does that mean there are two sizes for each flavor?  The search continues...
