Where is the Coca-Cola Christmas truck going in 2017?

COCA-COLA has revealed its famous Christmas truck tour dates – meaning the holiday season is well and truly on the way. Now in its seventh year, the iconic tour will kick off in Glasgow, Scotland, on November 11 and visit 42 locations across the UK. After snaking its way across the country, the truck will make its final stop at Essex’s Lakeside Shopping Centre on December 17.

At each stop, fans can project festive selfies across the side of the vehicle. They will also be able to enjoy a 150ml can of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar, Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Classic in a ‘winter wonderland’ setting.

In a statement to Mirror Online, Coca-Cola said : “For those visiting as the sun sets, the truck really comes to life with a special animation celebrating the magic Coca-Cola brings to Christmas.” “Every truck stop will also include a recycling call-to-action, encouraging consumers to recycle bottles and cans in line with Coca-Cola’s recent ‘Love Story’ recycling advert.”

Over the last seven years, the truck has travelled more than 730,000 miles – the equivalent of 29 times around the world. Featuring a whopping 8,772 fairy lights and playing the ‘Holidays are Coming’ jingle, it attracts fans from across the country.

A spokesperson for Coca-Cola Great Britain said: “The tour is now in its seventh year and each year we receive hundreds of requests to visit, something that we take into account when creating a route which has a good geographical spread. “People will have the opportunity to see the truck up close, have their photograph taken and enjoy a choice of a small 150ml can of Coca-Cola Classic or one of our zero sugar options Diet Coke or Coca-Cola Zero Sugar.”

Aedamar Howlett, marketing director for Coca-Cola Great Britain said today: “Coca-Cola is synonymous with the Christmas season and it’s no secret that our much-loved Christmas Truck Tour marks the unofficial countdown to Christmas.
