For cola bottles, it's back to '50s

It's the real thing. Coca-Cola is bringing back 8-ounce contour bottles -- made from "Georgia green" glass and featuring the raised Coca-Cola script -- which have not been used since the late 1950s. The bottom of the classic bottles also will carry the names of various cities around the country, as they did when the first bottles came on the market in 1915. No, you won't find Baltimore. But you will find Cokeville (Wyo.), population 490.
