Friends and family on the list for new Share a COKE® bottle

7 November, 2012

Friends, family and fiancés-to-be on the list for new ‘Share a COKE®’ bottles

Amanda is the girl people said they most want to ‘Share a COKE®’ with when they voted for which names should feature on a new release of 600mL COKE® bottles to share.

Last month, COCA-COLA invited Kiwis to have their say on which names should appear on COKE® bottles next, and more than 30,000 nominations and votes were submitted to decide the final 50 new names.

Amanda received the most votes, with Vanessa, Kayla and Samantha close behind. Michael was the most-voted-for boys name, rounding out the top five. The full list of new names will be revealed at www.shareacoke.co.nz this evening (Wednesday 7 November, from 5pm).

Some of New Zealand’s most popular first names first appeared on COCA-COLA bottles and cans in August as part of a spring-summer campaign to inspire people to connect and ‘Share a COKE®’ with friends and family.

“Share a COKE is all about inspiring moments of happiness between friends and family. Since names first appeared on COKE bottles in August, we’ve had hundreds of request from people looking for their name and the names of others special to them, and so who better to tell us who should be next,” says Brid Drohan-Stewart, COCA-COLA Sparkling Beverages Marketing Manager.

“When people first nominated names, we also asked them to tell us why that name or person was special to them, and it was a real treat to see the many reasons Kiwis wanted to nominate their nearest and dearest.”

Amanda’s around New Zealand were nominated by someone wanting to celebrate a reunion with their sister, someone wanting to surprise their girlfriend, and someone wanting to brighten the day of their unwell mother, for example.

Meanwhile, others wanted to share some happiness with their “cool” mate Michael, say thanks to him for being such a great dad, and to share with him as a reward for being so hard-working.

“There were also a few names in the final 50 that were requested as props for some very special marriage proposals, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed for them!”

The 600mL COKE® bottles featuring these 50 new names, as voted for by New Zealanders, will be available in store within the coming weeks and will gradually replace the original 150 names released in August.

For more information and more ways to ‘Share a COKE®’, head to www.shareacoke.co.nz or the COCA-COLA New Zealand facebook page.
