What happened to the Coca Cola sleek cans?

I remember buying one a gas station a few years ago but can't seem to find them anywhere now...are they still available in Canada?

If you mean the 310ml cans, there are many that can be found at gas stations and corner stores, but the ironic part is that they cost more than the 355ml cans.
Not just pennies either.
I don't get why it's a dollar (including tax) for the 355ml can, but yet for less pop, it's $1.29 plus tax for the 310ml can...at least in places where I've seen those cans lately...

Yeah actually found one today at a gas station. Must be only certain stores that carry them. It was $1.39 but I like these cans better than the 335ml shape.

One of the corner stores I visited recently tells me it actually costs the store more to carry the 310ml cans. It is doubtful they will continue carrying them when they can get the larger 355ml cans for less.

I think diet coke is only made in the sleek (310ml) and mini (222ml) cans now isn't it?

I am trying to find a place you can buy the sleek cans in bulk and it seems Coscto business centre sells 24 pak: https://www.costcobusinesscentre.ca/Coc ... 83423.html

I don't have a Costco membership so have no idea if 24 pak is available at regular Costco.

Special pricing is given, depending on the store and the contracts between them and distributors. So not all stores pay the same for their product.
That's my 2cents worth

Canco, I'm in BC so not sure if that will help you or not? But they did just show up in the last couple of weeks

It might also depend on who owns the cooler. If Coke owns the cooler, they are also controlling the price. (store is free to charge less if desired, but Coke still takes their cut no matter what)

Wow I can't believe the people actually like this Sleek cans of Coke. Why do you like them? They don't have enough liquid to satisfy my thirst and they are more expensive. I don't know where you guys get the idea that you cannot find them when every gas station it's all they have.

If coke owns the cooler then the store is for sure getting special pricing for the product.

I remember seeing the singles at the Sobeys on Stonechurch Rd E (Hamilton) last year. They were at the front cash endcaps at certain tills. I have not checked my Sobey's Extra Ancaster recently but I think I got the 4pks there (at least once).
2019-roll out the gold carpet! Wins to date: a t-shirt, too many Spotify playlists (not claimed), $25 Indigo gc, $5 Starbucks e-gc

Yeah I have found where to get them. Circle K convenience stores sell both singles and 4pks. Walmart sells 4pks. The 4pks go for about $2.50.
