NEW DELHI: Coca-Cola may stop selling soft drinks in glass bottles as they have become more expensive to produce compared to plastic bottles and cumbersome for most consumers to carry . The company is sampling Rs 10-12 small plastic bottles in Maharashtra, said people familiar with the development, and it may withdraw reusable glass bottles from most regional markets in the next three to four years. In its biggest market, the US, Coke stopped selling its iconic 6.5 oz (192 ml) glass bottles in 2012 due to similar reasons.
Most people stick to what they know when shopping for beer or wine, cautious to guess wrong and end up with a bottle or 6-pack they don't like. A new app called Next Glass is trying to fix that, and its solution works pretty well.

Keurig Green Mountain says it will start selling a machine Tuesday that makes single servings of cold beverages including Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper and flavoured seltzer waters. The machine is similar in concept to Keurig’s brewers, which let people make cups of coffee and tea by inserting a pod into the machine and pressing a button.
