Back in November was our last episode of exploding soft drink cans, making a horrible sticky mess in the cupboard.
Then today we noticed it had happened again. In this case one of the Dry Ginger Ale cans had opened itself, as you can see, and the others have some sort of slow leak, so that the cans are only partly full. It didn’t happen to all the cans, just a small proportion.
These were kept in an air-conditioned room, so it wasn’t a problem of heat.
A few months ago I noted that there was a new shape, which you can see on the left of this picture as a can of soda water. This shape can seems to be fine, and we’ve had no problems with it. Almost all cans for sale of this brand are now in this new shape. If you have a choice I would buy the new shape.
I don’t actually drink these drinks so often now, so in future I won’t buy in bulk any more.
