The end is near for a white can that has many Coke drinkers seeing red.

Coca-Cola Co. is switching back to its time-honored red just one month after rolling out its flagship cola in a snow-white can for the holidays. New seasonal cans in red will start shipping by next week, as white cans—initially expected to be in stores through February—make an exit.

I am glad they are going away. I work in a hospital with diabetics and when they want a drink it has been confusing because the Diet Coke AND the winter regular coke are both silver.

It was really stupid product design. It looks just like Diet Coke.

I love the "Others thought that Coke tasted different in white cans." Give me a break.

That said, when your branding is as universal as Coke's, it's stupid to mess with it. Like it or not, predominantly red can = Coke.

Why undo a tradition? Coca-Cola is packaged in red, so it should stay in red.

I got my 12 pack home and paniced thinking I had accidently bought Diet Coke. Used to the can now and it's actually quite pretty. I still prefer the more recognizable red can. I confuse easily the older I get and prefer not to have curves thrown to me.
