While walking down the carbonated beverage aisle at my local Jewel, I noticed a new package option for Coca-Cola, an eight pack of 7.5oz Coke cans. I'm calling them Wee-Coke. Though Coke already makes an 8oz can in the more traditional size and shape of its 12oz brother, the new Wee-Coke can looks like a shrunken version of the 12oz as opposed to the stubby 8oz. Apparently Coca-Cola is experimenting with "portion-control" sizes, each single serve can is only 90 calories and is part of a "broader effort to adjust to the demands of consumers trying to make better decisions about their health." I've also seen Coca-Cola's new 8.5oz aluminum bottles the Chicago area as well, but I don't know how available those are as of yet.
