Coke fans are only just realising a major change to bottles – and they’re furious | The Sun

COCA-COLA fans are only just realising there's been a major change to bottles and they are not happy.

The fizzy drink giant rolled out new bottle caps across the country from October last year.

The caps are attached to 1.5L and 500ml bottles and don't come off when you open your drink.

The change can also be spotted on Fanta, Sprite and Dr Pepper bottles.

But Coca-Cola lovers are furious and many have only just noticed the change.

Disappointed shoppers took to Facebook to share their thoughts.

One wrote: "This is the actual worst thing about modern Britain."

And another commented: "I thought I was going mad! This has just started happening right?!"

While another person had just thought it was her not having the strength to take the lid off: "This is why I love social media, I had no idea this was a thing.

"I just thought I’d gone pathetically limp-wristed and was unable to open a bottle these days…."

Though a few said the change was good.

One said: "I actually love when this happens. Means I never have to worry about losing the cap, and I can still screw it back on."

Coca Cola started rolling out the cap change back in May and said the switch is set to be completed on all plastic bottles by early 2024.

It isn't the only change made that has upset customers lately.

Some supermarkets have launched vacuum-packed meat products in a bid to be more sustainable.

Sainsbury's revealed it would be vacuum-packing all of its beef mince products in February.

In April, it then removed single-use plastic trays from its whole chicken range.

But shoppers were unhappy with the move and slammed the change, complaining that now the meat sticks together in a lump.

In a review on the Sainsbury's website, one customer said that it was "not mince at all now" and that it "comes apart in lumps".

And last week Co-op said will be vacuum packing all of its beef mince products.

The amount of meat in each packet will still stay the same so shoppers won't be missing out.

In less disappointing news, Lidl announced it would be changing the way it packages junk food in a bit to make them seem less appealing to little ones.

The move is aimed to reduce kids nagging their parents to buy unhealthy products due to the appeal of the packaging, otherwise known as "pester power".
