Unboxing the McDonald’s 2014 Coca-Cola Glass Collection

Something awesome landed on my doorstep the other day. At first I didn’t know what it was because all I saw was a huge black box, but as I got a closer look the excitement was pretty immediate. It was a collector’s edition box of McDonald’s 2014 Coca-Cola glasses! The box is a smooth, simply-designed lightweight black box with embossed silver text. Even the box is a beauty.

It has become quite the yearly tradition (7 years running!) for McDonald’s to release these gorgeous glasses in collaboration with Coca-Cola. A lot of people look forward to collecting them every year, but I think this year they came up with the best ones yet.

The set this year is called the Coca-Cola Modern Glass Collection— the perfect name to describe the look for this year’s collection indeed. The design screams contemporary, and each of the six glasses in the collection have distinctive patterns: diamond, linear, mosaic, pixel, ripple, and steel. The glasses are all a light grayish colour as opposed to the previous years’ more colourful offerings. They’re both classy and a little rugged at the same time, and I love that they all have very different surface-feels when you hold them depending on the pattern.

The best part? Just by adding Php 25 to any McDonald’s Extra Value Meal, you can get one of the six Coca-Cola glasses already! This also applies to the BFF Burger or Chicken Bundle, and the breakfast Extra Value Meals. That’s a great deal, methinks.

I’m a fan of the Coke glasses in general because I think they are great collector’s items. We have gathered a few over the years and most of them are not connected to McDonald’s, so I was so so happy to get these glasses! (I actually drink from a really tall green Coca-Cola glass with a handle every single day.) Anyway like I said, I find this particular set from McDonald’s really classy and gorgeous, so I decided to shoot them up close for you all to see. It’s a bit tough to pick a favourite so it’ll really be easier to just collect them all, right?

This Diamond one is the one featured on the box they sent over. It actually kind of sparkles when it catches the light.

Mosaic looks like a turtle’s shell. It’s not my particular favourite but it is an eye-catching design nonetheless.

The Ripple pattern is my second favourite because it looks just effortlessly classic and simple but it has like an endless effect of circles that makes it look so pretty.

The Linear glass is the opposite of the glass above in that its lines run vertically instead of horizontally. It reminds me of those tall sundae glasses. I have a photo of it filled with Coke below if you want to see how it looks with a drink in it.

The Pixel glass kind of reminds me of a disco ball. I don’t know but I get retro vibes from it, and for some reason it is my personal favourite.

Lastly, the Steel design is probably the coolest among the six and the most suited to the Mr. Tough Guy who wants to own one of these. I love the feel of this glass in my hands.

Thanks to McDonald’s for hooking me up with these pretty glasses! I’m sure they’ll be making regular appearances on food photoshoots from now on. 🙂

And since we’re on the subject of McDonald’s, I’ll take this opportunity to mention this new burger McDonald’s recently introduced on their menu. Filipinos love the McDonald’s cheeseburgers, with its 100% pure beef patty, slice of American cheese, and all the necessary add-ons like pickles, minced onions, ketchup, and mustard, sandwiched between toasted buns. But now this signature burger has something else in the mix that will surely make Filipinos love it more: bacon.

For a limited time only, McDonald’s will offer its Bacon Cheeseburger– essentially their signature burger with the crunch of savory bacon. Pictured on this post is the Bacon Cheeseburger Deluxe, which has lettuce, tomatoes, and a special dressing added to the mix.

When I told him about this new creation my brother was immediately curious so he walked to the nearest McDonald’s and bought himself the Bacon Cheeseburger Deluxe. That’s his giant hand you see there haha! You can opt for this burger when you get the BFF Burger Bundle with your friends, just so you know.

    Getting this right now in Canada and we don’t have to pay extra for it at all. Down side is that we don’t get the mosaic cup which is my favorite and the ripple cup. It was a happy surprises when I went there today and I got the free steel cup with my mcchicken meal.
