Adventures in Asia

Pull off tops

A few last tidbits from China…because, how could you ever forget China?

Throughout China they still use the ‘pull off’ tops on their soda cans.  I remember them as a kid from almost 20 years ago.  I thought they got rid of them because of the litter (people would throw them on the ground all the time).  Well, the good ‘ol Coca Cola company (and everyone else) failed to get rid of them in China!  Here is a nice reminder for everyone!

  2. They were also done away with because people would choke on them. They’d toss the tab in the can and then swallow it accidentally! I remember an episode of “Emergecy 51” (remember that show?!?) about just such a situation.
