The Coca-Cola Christmas truck, which has been gracing our streets since 1995, is back and embarks on its 2022 tour around the UK. To help spread cheer and excitement during the festive season, Coca-Cola has announced that it will return and will be handing out cans of free Coca-Cola from its festive truck.
The truck is planning to make stops at supermarket branches across the UK, as well as some shopping centres, however, these dates and destinations will gradually be announced. During the 2023 tour, the Coca-Cola Christmas truck will be making its way back to Scotland and stopping at Edinburgh’s Fort Kinnaird on November 25 from 11:30am, to bring plenty of festive freebies and joy.
Visitors will be able to get their festive fill of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar and Coca-Cola Original, as well as the opportunity for some seasonal selfies in front of the iconic red truck in a “magical winter wonderland setting”. The Snowglobe and Ho-Ho-Hoop Game Hut will also be available for guests to enjoy throughout the tour, as well as the Coca-Cola Christmas choir, as they perform a set of carols, filling the air with holiday magic.
This year, the brand has also teamed up with Neighbourly, a charity that supports local communities and inspires acts of kindness to those most in need. Visitors can donate both online and through a QR code on the spot.
Florence Wheatley, Brand Manager at Coca-Cola Company, Great Britain, said: “Coca-Cola has been spreading Christmas cheer for decades and, this year, we’ve added even more exciting elements to make it as magical and merry as possible. Alongside the beloved return of the Truck Tour nationwide and the much loved ‘Holidays Are Coming’ advert, we have introduced new elements like the ‘World Needs More Santas’ TVC and an interactive Santa Quiz.
We’re also thrilled to extend our partnership with Neighbourly, emphasising spreading kindness and making a positive impact across the UK. Together, we want to inspire year-round acts of goodwill and truly make a difference in all local communities.”
