You pay more for the smaller soda because it is cold, you're paying the cost of the fridge. Same with the 2-liter, at the pizza store cold is like 3 bucks, at the market where it's warm it's like $1.25. (in AZ)

In New York a 2 Liter is $2/2.25
The Smaller one is $1.50
And the water is $1/1.50

Gee I don't know, probably because Coca Cola owns Aquafina and they want you to buy coca cola instead of aquafina?

It also has to do with the fact that the more there is at a cheaper price, the more willing the customer is to buy it. Granted Coca cola will make less of a profit, it will make up for it due to the fact there would be more sales of it.

then again I could be wrong, I'm no econ major here

maybe there's some kind of bohemian grove cult of people with good health who want to raise a select race of incestious non-diabetes contracting jews or something

You're paying for the bottle, not the liquid.

that makes no sense, the smaller coke bottle would cost less from your logic then.
User avatar #239 to #238 - Ottovan (05/22/2013) [-]

Doesn't matter the size.

You're paying for the manufacturing, not the drink.

"You're paying for the bottle" is a term meaning you're not paying for the food, but the way it's manufactured.
User avatar #225 to #221 - carfreak (05/22/2013) [-]
That still wouldn't make sense. Think about it before you saying some absurd comment.
User avatar #227 to #225 - Ottovan (05/22/2013) [-]
Uh, it makes perfect sense.

Most bottled water is just tap water.

You're paying for the convenience of the bottle, no the liquid itself.

Get educated.

So the 2 dollar bottled water, which is just purified water, is more expensive than the 1 dollar bottle of coke that has Carbonated Water, High Fructose Corn Syrup, Caramel Color, Phosphoric Acid, Natural Flavors, and Caffeine because you're paying for the bottle? Also, you're forgetting about the cost of the factory to make the water/coke.

Listen to me.

I agree that we shouldn't have to pay so much for bottled water but in no way is it a scam. You're paying for the the filtration process that the water has to go through. The bottle is the cheapest part about the entire thing.

Stop acting like a ******* child.

I went to Great America in Illinois last week and they charged $3.50 for a bottle of water.


Don't get me wrong - I understand that's how they make money, considering that people still buy it up - but it's crazy.
#207 - anonynot (05/22/2013) [-]
this is what my professor calls "fatty profits"

the average US consumer will look first at the smaller coke (1.75) and then compare it to the water (1.99). Although the water is better, healthier and worth the extra quarter, we want to go with the cheaper and " ******* " or "junk" food/drink and get the coke (1.75), but then we see the big 2 liter coke (0.99) and think. "WOW i can get more coke for cheaper! I'm gonna go buy more so im stocked up on it since it's such a low price."

I'd never buy bottled water, stuff tastes like stale ass.

Would much rather spend money on something that tastes nice on the spot, and drink water at home from the tap that doesn't taste abused.

1L of water is 99 cents

to make the consumer feel he's in for a bargain as to why the bigger coke costs less. as for the water much like evian it must have some purified mineralized element to it making the consumer think he's gonna be healthier when he buys the more expensive one

It's not about how much something is worth, it's about how much people are willing to pay for it.

Old news. eating and drinking healthy is ******* expensive.

why do you think the lower middle class tends to be fat? maybe because 2 mcdonalds burgers is cheaper than a salad.

Like I always say on posts like this, people forget what a convenience cost is. You want something quick, cold, and refreshing. So odds are you're going to buy the chilled bottle of cola than the large bottle of room temperature cola sitting on a shelf in a random aisle.

User avatar #219 to #215 - reaperssprint (05/22/2013) [-]
Exactly. I really don't know why people keep complaining when they'll keep paying for it anyway.
#189 - jonesglamorgan (05/22/2013) [-]
I have heared that coca cola is cheaper to make than the actual plastic it's contained in? Is this just a myth?
User avatar #188 - commanderbunbun (05/22/2013) [-]
drinks that are refrigerated are more expensive to pay for the electric bill. larger drink bottles like that aren't often in a fridge or cooler.

as for the water, it all depends where you are. pop can be the same price. i work at a concession stand, and the machine we have has both pop and water. $2.75 for everything.

and before you say thats outrageous, film companies demand 60% to 70% of all profits of theaters featuring their films. not just the ticket money. in order for expenses to be paid and for me to get a legal paycheck, snacks and such need to be that expensive.
User avatar #190 to #188 - SRsoccerstar (05/22/2013) [-]
Also in general the price of bottled water is inflated. It costs the water companies 10 cents to draw a gallon of water. after all overhead they're making an insane profit on each bottle sold, its almost robbery.
