Ebay the thing for a couple hundred bucks. Some idiot will buy it. :lol:

Empty sealed pressurized pensi cola can!

That's for sure, if I were Zepher I would give it a try, you never know, just place it as a very rare collector's item, with a long auction, and I'm sure he'll make some nice money out of it.

At least this can was empty, as in nothing inside... Remember the incident several years back involving a hypodermic syringe supposedly found in a sealed Pepsi can?

According to Snopes.com (external link) that was just the rumor mill, no one ever actually found a needle in an enclosed can.

"In 1993 Pepsi was producing 2,000 cans a minute at 150 plants on high-speed canning lines in which cans were inverted, shot with a blast of air or water, and then turned right side up and filled. Since the cans were open for only nine-tenths of a second, someone would have had to be awful quick to get a syringe into any of them."

That's a Mr. Rogers special I didn't get to see.


Thanks for looking!

I found the same issue with a mountain dew ice cherry. I contacted the company. They ought to learn: don't screw up

Did they give you a replacement 12-pack that was full of it?

I used to design planograms for a home improvement chain. We had fixtures set up in a warehouse and would do the work there, not in a store. We used to get empty packages from most of the vendors for the set. Never thought of keeping them to get stuff though.

A few years ago I bought a 12 pack of Diet Coke from a market. All was good until I opened one can - it didn't taste right.
I looked at the expiration date on the can's bottom, and it had expired two years earlier. All the other cans in the package
had the current expiration date. Strange how that one old can got in the 12 can package.

I sent an email to Coca-Cola and got a reply. They could not explain how a 2 year old can of Coke got in the package.
But they sent me a coupon for another 12 pack.

Wow!! this guys do really want to uphold the company's name.. all the positive responses and the
respect they have shown is just out of this world given that it is an international company..
Many would not even respond to your email....
I should also give it a try on some expensive drink.. some Remy Martin .. and see how they would
respond..say it exploded on my face while opening the bottle or something..
