Personalised Coke bottles have only arrived in Ireland in the last few weeks and they’re already incredibly popular. Whoever came up with the idea is a very smart employee — it’s such a simple yet effective way to really grab people’s attention. I’d been on the look-out for my own name ever since I found out about these so I was pretty excited to finally come across it today!
It’s lovely that they’re featuring Irish names and that they’re even including the ‘fada’. The best way to explain this to my non-Irish readers is that ‘fada’ literally means ‘long’ in Irish. In the Irish language, the fada goes over certain vowels to lengthen the pronunciation of that letter so in this case, the ‘e’ is pronounced like ‘eahh’ (I hope this makes sense. It’s been a while since I spoke as Gaeilge!).
Anyway, moving on from the Irish grammar lesson, I was really pleased to find this bottle. Although to be honest, I don’t drink regular Coke(!). I love Coke Zero though (I swear they do taste different!) so I’ll just have to keep looking out for my name on the black label. After this discovery, I’m sure I’ll find it soon! Have you found your name yet?
