Christmas is just around the corner. But for me, it’s not the only thing I’m looking forward to this season. This is also that time of the year when I haplessly plan out my meals at McDonalds to get a piece of their featured Coke Glass Collection.
It’s been a couple of years since I started collecting these limited edition wares from the much-loved restaurant, and I found myself ogling over the posters each year. Dismayed when they run out of stock with the color or design I’ve been eyeing, and giggling in silent glee when I take it home to unbox. In a sense, this becomes no different from a scavenger hunt that when it’s not available in one branch, I skip on to the next until I find that one piece I’ve been after. Yeah, yeah, I sound like a crazy old coot collecting coins (LOL), but to me… it’s love. Hahaha
As McDonalds marks its 8th year in the program, they’re making 2015’s collection extra special. While the collection still features Coca-Cola and is exclusively available at McDo, there’s something really cool about these glasses. I mean, just look at these babies!!!
No, I wasn’t born between 1899 and 1961 (defensive much?). This collection is extra special because the design is inspired by the image and advertising slogans for each stamped year. It’s like a walk down memory lane, proving that Coca-Cola has been around that long, and continues to bring so much joy to people all over the world. Oh, and before I forget, these glasses come in the original Coca-Cola bottle’s Georgia green color and are modeled after the bottle’s contour.
Imagine this: having all six in your collection is like having a piece of Coca-Cola history. Thanks to McDonald’s for offering this to the public, we now all have the opportunity to have them.
I’ve been a batang McDo all my life. Feasting on their fries and burgers even when I’m in a time crunch is like sipping warm soup on a cold rainy day; frankly, I’d rather have hot, crispy fries on a rainy day, anyway. As a child, and occasionally as an adult, I’d still flash a toothy smile when getting toys with happy meals. But as an actual adult, having a Coca-Cola glass during this season gives me the same delightful effect.
You can get your hands on these beautiful glasses from October 30 for just Php29 a piece with every Value Meal. Unfortunately though, this doesn’t apply to any Fries N’ McFloat combos or Happy Meals.
But wait! If you feel like you can’t get out of the house or would rather not squeeze in with the lunch or dinner rush, you can still get them via Drive-Thru, McDelivery via 86-2-86 (8-MCDO), www.mcdelivery.com.ph, or the McDo PH app, all day, including breakfast hours.
Share your collection at McDonald’s official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/mcdo.ph, or by tagging @McDo_PH on Twitter and Instagram.
