    well i know you can get 4 cans for a quid at my local shop, but yeah i agree, cans have stayed quite low, maybe because at any higher price people would just go for a bottle?

    depends where, in supermarkets and bigger shops or small shops in less busy areas they are <50p but in busy areas and in major cities etc. i've seen them go as high as 80p and in one corner shop that is surrounded by offices in london and is used sooo much, cans of regular coke are £1

    i only buy them in bulk, and i get pepsi for 25p and other drinks are around 30 to 40p only, LIDL, tesco etc.!!
    i try to steer clear of corner shops unless they are less than 50p..

    ...as far as I am aware, and everything else has increased, like milk etc.
    Well 500ml drinks is sometimes £1. It used to be 80p and then it went up to 90p then 95p

    Average of 60p? I thought the vending machine at work was ripping us off at 60p a can, along with 50p for any chocolate (Twix, small bag of Maletesers, the standard vending machince snacks). The price has never changed in the 4 years I've been there.

    Until recently there was a vending machine in a local Tesco which sold them for 36p - sadly when they refurbed the shop it was removed.

    Tesco have 42p cans of coke I think...it's service stations that I find really rip you off.

    I guess prices aren't that high because there's not as much demand for them as there is in warmer places...up to 4 euros in cafes in southern europe, unless you go to the supermarkets/grocers where you can occasionally find them under a euro.

    you all are getting ripped off.

    25p =] from farmfoods and the like.
    Agreed. Don't be scared to buy the cheaper stuff, it's just as good.

    By the way, I think you stole my smile. :rolleyes:

    Cans are rubbish. Coke never tastes as nice from a can, and it's almost impossible to drink from one without making irritating slurping noises. I even annoy myself if I drink from a can.
