Prices of drinks

Post by Antti » Fri Sep 27, 2002 2:43 pm

We had a short discussion abou this in another forum, but I would have gone too far there and so it's now here as its own topic.

The "drinks" in the original posts ment soft drinks (Coca-Cola etc.) and that's what Iwas mostly interested in, because on my holidays in southern Europe I've noticed soft drinks are much cheaper there than in Finland. Bur I don't know about central Europe and I'm not too sure about the general prices in southern Europe and thereforth I wanted to ask you where are soft drinks the cheapest and where the most expensive.

My prices are: at my school 1.30e for a ½litre bottle, in stores that could be 10c cheaper, and in some places much more expensive.
A 1½litre bottle costs something between 1.80e and 2.50e

Those are only my prices and someone else could have different prices, even in Finland, and I'd be interested in hearing them too.

P.S. Does anyone know a word for soft drinks, that would be a little easier (=shorter)?

Where is that location you tell us, Francky? Or is it a big secret?
Soda would be nice, we should propably use it instead of soft drinks, which propably is a very official and formal word, since it's that long it can't be anything else.

at my school a can of soft drink (in the netherlands it is frisdrank of fris wich isn't much shorter) of 0.33 l is 0,85 € a bottle of 0,50 l is 1,25 €

At my work in a supermarket we also have a machine. ther the cans are € 0,45.

a 1,5 l bottle is about 1,10 - 1,20 €

9.99 € for a crate with 12 one liter bottles Coca Cola is quite usual in Germany, but I buy only on special offers for 6.99 €. This is why I have approx. 50 liters of softdrinks in my cellar.
If I want something special, I buy a can of Dr Pepper's for 0.55 €. Public places and vending machines are more expensive.
Since many distributors raised their prices with the introduction of the Euro, I make more use of special offers.

8O That was expensive. I have never seen ½liter bottles more expensive than 2e

And about the names, in Finland soft drink is officially virvoitusjuoma, but as you can understand it's too long for common use, so we use words such as limonadi or shorter limsa.

Btw, here in Finland you always pay for the bottle too, you'll get refund when you take it back. That's for shops and machines, in restaurant you won't take a bottle with you :)

Btw, I think I've never paid more than 0.75€/l in 1.5l bottles (emergencies excluded 8) ), but that's the only size I buy and of course not at normal price :) Here discout prices are usually 2.5-3€ for 2* 1.5l (incl. 2* 0.40€ refund).

Are the prices for other countries with or without refund?

In my school I pay 0.40 euro for 0.20l Cola/Fanta/Sprite.
Nestea is a little more expensive: 0.50 euro.

I don't know the exact price of bigger bottles in shops, because I never buy them...
But I think it's about 1.25 euro for 1.5l or even 2l, I don't know exactly...

In the netherlands the refund for a 1,5 l bottle is € 0,25 (before the euro it was fl1,00 = € 0.45).
When I buy a bottle of 1,5 l Coca Cola I pay 1,13 for the cola (I checked it last week :lol: ) and 0,25 for the bottle to a total of 1,38.
thats the normal price but there are a lot of special discount prices with prices like 0,70-0,80 € for 1,5 l

What always makes Nestea etc. more expensive? I've tried to figure this out, but I don't think it could more expensive to make. Or is it?
This thing just annoys me, because the price usually makes me buy a cola or something, although I would prefer an ica tea.

I only can explain for Germany: Nestea comes in 0.25 liter bottles, while CocaCola is bottled with 0.2 liter. Don't know if it's the same in Finland, check out!
