Coca-Cola’s iconic Christmas truck could return over the festive season after the drinks giant dropped a cryptic hint.

For years, the Real Magic Christmas Truck has brought cans of the fizzy juice to fans across the country as part of its winter tour.

The first sighting of the lorry has become a bit of a tradition ever since it first appeared in Coca‑Cola’s famous Holidays Are Coming advert.

For many, the TV commercial remains an iconic signal the festive season has arrived.

It was cancelled due to strict Covid restrictions in 2020 but made a return last year with Glasgow announced as its first stop in November.

Celebrating its return tour, the Christmas truck set out to visit as many cities around the UK as possible

Anticipating the 14-tonne decorated truck’s arrival, an eager Twitter user asked the company directly: “Is the holiday truck, coming this year?”

Coca-Cola responded: “Christmas is coming but is the truck tour? You will have to watch this space.”

The drinks giant is currently sponsoring the COP27 global climate summit in Egypt where First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and Prime Minister Rishi Sunak have been speaking with representatives from other countries.

Coca-Cola have been the world’s biggest plastic polluting company for the last four years in a row, producing a staggering 120 billion plastic bottles a year, according to campaign group Break Free From Plastic.

In May, Coca-Cola announced it was introducing attached caps across its entire drinks range in an effort to boost recycling and prevent litter.

The move by Coca-Cola Great Britain, which it said is a first for a major soft drinks company, aims to make it easier for consumers to recycle the entire package.
