Subject: grey market coca-cola
I had noticed this phenomenum independently, and stumbled/googled across your (3yr old) blog entry on the same subject
currently, macedonian (from skopje) coke is everywhere in the city of london.
german, spanish, dutch, and french are also common place.
no-one seems to bother with ingredients labels in english anymore.
my previous distance record was held by Nigerian coke (in a 350ml can?), only to be smashed yesterday when i got hold of some originating from.... Singapore!
this beggars belief... i.e. that it can be cheaper to buy and transport coke from almost half-way round the world, than it is to ship it from 20 miles up the A40
