McDonald’s 2015 Coca-Cola Glasses: a tribute and celebration to the Classics

McDonalds 2015 Coca-Cola Glasses

I used to collect a lot of Coca-Cola memorabilia when I was growing up – cards, miniature bottles, and even their seasonal holiday-inspired drinking cans. But it has been decades since I last saw my stash and I honestly don’t know what became of them. My folks may have moved them out of my room or these got misplaced along with the various renovations our house undergone through the years.

This is why I was suddenly hit with a dose of nostalgia when a package from McDonald’s Philippines was sent to my doorsteps last week. I gingerly opened it and found out that it’s their 2015 Coca-Cola Glass Collection.

McDonalds 2015 Coca-Cola Glasses - six designs

Inside the custom-made canister are 6 bottles that show various embossed Coca-Cola logos, each of which reflect the imagery and advertising of the following periods – 1899, 1916, 1955, 1961, 1994 and 2015. The glasses also take the shape of the iconic and patented contour bottle and are offered in the Coke bottle’s original Georgia green color.

The 1994 is my favorite in the bunch, probably because it was just around this time that I began collecting all things Coca-Cola. On it are the words “THE REAL THING.” I could still remember some of the ads that run on that slogan, including one which featured the popular Coca-Cola Polar Bear.

I’ve been told that this unique partnership between McDonald’s and Coca-Cola is now on it’s 8th year. Aside from 2 Olympics themes (2008 and 2012), I can’t remember what the other glass collections were about.

I like the 2015 edition because it shows a sense of history of a softdrink brand that’s embraced by many generations, including the millions of Filipinos who always want a bottle of Coke with lechon, durian and especially with their favorite McDonald’s meals.

To collect the limited edition Mcdonald’s 2015 glasses, simply add Php 29 to any McDonald’s meal. Collect all six designs only at McDonald’s via Dine-In, Drive-Thru, or McDelivery via 86-2-86, www.mcdelivery.com.ph, or the McDo PH app, all day, including breakfast hours.

      Hey Carlo. Welcome to Baktin Corporation! Yes, I may still have some of those collectible cards. Those I hope are stashed somewhere in my room.
