Holidays are coming… How to pick up a free can of Coke and see the Coca-Cola truck this Christmas

You know the build-up to Christmas has begun when you see the festive Coca-Cola advert. And this year, like many before, the Coca-Cola truck from that famous advert is going on tour around the country giving out free Coke and festive cheer.

This year’s tour is fairly lacklustre compared to recent years, making stops in 22 towns and cities, as opposed to 42 in 2017. That said, if there is one close by to you, it would be a fun free day out.

At each stop there will be photo opportunities, festive carol singers and a free 150ml can of either Coca-Cola, Diet Coke or Coke Zero Sugar for every person.

While this is obviously just a big PR stunt from Coke, many people do look out for it each year, with kids enjoying seeing the truck from the telly all lit up and there are always freebies up for grabs, so we thought we’d share it with you.
