History of the Coca Cola trucks!

1995 – The Coca‑Cola Christmas trucks were first created by agency W.B. Doner for the company’s new seasonal advertising campaign. Known as ‘Christmas Caravans’, the illuminated vehicles were made even more enchanting with special effects by the world-famous Industrial Light and Magic – who had previously worked on Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Did you know? Three 18-wheel ‘props’, each covered in more than 30,000 bulbs, were used to make the 1995 ad and crafted to look like a never-ending fleet of trucks

Images of the Coca‑Cola Santa by artist Haddon Sundblom decorate the sides of the trucks. Just before the ad ends, the Santa on the back of the final truck raises his bottle of Coca‑Cola in a holiday toast.

1996 – The trucks returned in 1996 and helped to introduce the new Coca‑Cola Christmas packaging. The ‘Santa packs’ featured their heritage Sundblom imagery and were available in the USA, the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, South Africa, Singapore, and the Philippines.

1998 – The ‘Christmas Caravan III’ advert was broadcast in more than 100 different countries to millions of viewers. It remains one of the most widely-used Coca‑Cola commercials ever produced.

1999 – ‘Journey’, the fourth advert in the Coca‑Cola truck series, was released. The footage sees the trucks spring to life in front of a young boy and his grandfather as they sit at home reading a Christmas storybook. The advert was filmed in snowy Vancouver, Canada using three trucks (which computer generation later made look like a never-ending fleet of trucks), and a cast of 40 people.

This year, as a special celebration, Coca Cola’s iconic Christmas truck will be touring around the UK, bringing Coca‑Cola magic to people up and down the country. Covering 100 towns, cities and supermarkets across Great Britain and Ireland between 14th November and 23rd December 2011, the Coca Cola elves will be surprising consumers with a selection of festive treats. Check out the nearest place you can see it here!

Did you know? Each truck…

  • Weighs 40 tonnes max
  • Measures 16.5m in length, from the front of the car to the back of the truck
  • Is 4.1m tall
  • Is covered in 3,200 light bulbs

In total, the Christmas truck tour covers…

  • Approximately 5,000 miles in distance
  • That’s about 100 stops in total!

Bought this as a joke present for my 24 year old brother. The size pretty much fits all and the product is great for a laugh. Also I must say I’m very impressed with the speed of delivery. I ordered Friday 14th Dec and despite all of the weather chaos I received the product on Monday 17th. Very happy with this purchase.

Gorgeous Gifts For Marvelous Mums!

With Christmas shopping starting earlier than ever this year I am starting to feel a little disorganised when my smug friends boast about having all their Christmas gifts purchased and wrapped already for the arrival of the Christmas tree!

Fear not through as with TruffleShuffle’s new Gift Finder it couldn’t be easier! I decided to start with “Gifts For Her” as I never know what to get for my mum and with over 500 products to choose from I can’t go wrong. I can even narrow down my search to look for specific gifts for “TV Addicts“, “Movie Lovers“, “Wannabe Rock Stars” and loads of other suggestions to make Christmas Shopping even simpler!

Having browsed the different categories and decided my mum is definitely a bit of a “TV Addict” I have found the perfect presents for her, as a massive Coronation Street fan I have struck gold with some amazing stocking fillers! I know mum is going to love the Hilda Ogden Coronation Street Apron and the Hilda And Stan Ogden Coronation Street Classic Quote Mug.

While I was browsing I even found found loads of great gifts for the rest of my family so I am also starting to feel a little smug like my friends! My telly addict sister is going to be receiving the Retro Coronation Street TV Remote Control Holder, my aunt will be chuffed with the Bet Lynch Coronation Street Classic Quote Mug as she does love a bit of leopard! And then to complete all the female members of my family there are even gifts for my nan who will be unwrapping the Blanche Hunt Coronation Street Classic Quote Mug and my grandma (who insists on drinking tea from a ‘fine bone china mug’) will hopefully like this porcelain Hilda Ogden Commemorative Coronation Street Tea Time Gift Set just as much!

If the ladies in your family are a little less Coronation Street and a little more “sweet treat” you should check out the fantastic collection of sugary sweetness in the form of our beautiful jewellery including this Pink Gummy Bear Ring and the very realistic looking Flump Ring!

So, with my Xmas shopping such a breeze and nearly complete I might as well get it all sorted in one place and just sit back and wait for it all be be delivered to my door and get ready for a wrapping session! Plus, with free Recorded Delivery when you spend over £50 I am actually saving time and money by not having to visit a shop!

I am going to be taking some inspiration from Dave’s Great Gifts For Men and Simon’s Great Gifts For Dads posts to get my Christmas shopping all wrapped up this year while shopping the easy way, in the warm with a mug of hot chocolate in hand!
