Grabbed one today on it's own and nearly fainted at the price.

I often buy a bottle of diet coke with other bits of my lunch, so never noticed the actual cost of it individually.

1.18 in Boots

A can is cheaper..although it's less liquid, so maybe not

Not sure of the boots can price.. my local indep News agents is 85p but remember at Uni is was only 60p

I'm going to be looking very puzzled if I try to work out cost per ml everytime I'm thirsty

Being a dumb american, our coke bottles are 20 fl oz, which is just a tad over 590ml. They're $1.25 from the vending machine at work, so about 80p?

They are ridiculously overpriced.

I tend to get Pepsi max (prefer it to any similar drinks) and they are usually 2 litres 2 for 2.00 in Tesco (on and off) or Farm Foods do them 2 litres 2 for 1.60.

1.08 in Asda today. I was shocked at how much it's gone up

PS. Pepsi have started making 600ml bottles of coke. I've often wondered why ours are smaller!
