Coca Cola issues statement on its Christmas truck tour 2021

Great news for Derbyshire fans of the Coca Cola Christmas truck as the drinks giant has revealed it will tour again this year. The tour did not happen last year due to lockdown, but Coca Cola has revealed it is back on. The tour locations are annually anticipated, with fans eager to find out where they can see the Christmas lorry.

Coca Cola updates the list of touchdown towns and cities each year to “include more and more locations”. And keen fans will travel far afield to grab a free bottle of coke and take some Christmassy snaps for social media. The truck, which is painted in the drinks giant’s trademark red hue, usually visits around 40 locations from the end of November.

Though it usually makes dozens of stops, Coca Cola is so far remaining tight-lipped about the full tour schedule for 2021. For countless families, the return of the truck marks the start of the festive period, reports The Mirror. Even the announcement of the tour has set social media ablaze, with many users unable to contain their excitement.

Others have quizzed the drinks giant on Twitter, and asked them to reveal more details. Though the brand is keeping many details secret, Coca-Cola GB has left clues and cryptic messages dotted around its social media accounts. It appears to be hinting that the Yuletide lorry will grace British towns any day now.

In response to one woman tweeting: “Patiently waiting for the Christmas @CocaCola_GB truck tour to be announced…” The drinks giant replied: “Keep your eyes on our socials…” Replying to another post, Coca-Cola wrote: “We’re just recruiting the last of our reindeer…”

Another concerned fan asked: “So not even a clue if it is coming back?” But Coca-Cola replied: “Holidays are coming…” with a Santa Claus emoji sure to send followers into a frenzy. Other hints include the brand writing: “We’ve spoken to Santa and he seems pretty eager to us.”

Excited Coke fans are hoping the grand reveal will come this weekend.

Others say they will put up their Christmas tree on the day its announced.
