Complain about it by sending them an e-mail or a letter. Many large corporations actually appreciate and encourage feedback from their customers rather than shunning it. At the least you might get a free Coke or two out of it!

Quoting CaptOveur (Reply 3): I am guessing the caps are a cost saving measure. The new caps look like they involve a lot less material than the old ones.
i wonder about that. i work in the injection molding industry, but i haven't seen the new caps yet. I'll have to check out some of the recent magazines to see if they mention this. It really doesn't look like they got rid of that much material. But it does look like the manufacturing has changed. It looks like there isn't that ring that stays on the bottle anymore, correct? I wonder if it was more a manufacturing issue.
edit: nevermind about the last part. found some other pics that show it still has the ring.

I just noticed on my Dasani that it appears to have the cap. I didn't find it any different than the old ones to open. The difference is more pronounced in the picture above than I find it to be sitting in front of me.

Quoting FXramper (Reply 15): but most people that do will usually consume the 12 oz can in one sitting. Marketing bomb.
That depends. I know quite a few who won't finish 12 ounces. It is one reason they have been doing the 12 oz plastic bottles, which aren't much good for keeping the soda fizzy or retaining cold, which the cans are much better at.

I bought some Mexican Coke at Walmart a few months ago. It is made with Cane Sugar instead of that HFCS crap, but even though is was marked only as Coke, it had a Lime flavor to it, just like Coke with Lime. Now if only I could find it as plain old Coke with Cane Sugar. Maybe I'll hit our local Jewish supermarket.....
