    Default Canned Dasani?

    I saw on a soda collecting site, I think it was USASodas or something, but they had canned Dasani. I would imagine that it tastes disgusting.

    Why do you assume it would taste disgusting?

    After Hurricanes here in Florida and after Katrina a couple of years ago the AB bottler and Lite bottler would produce "emergency" rations of water and put them in cans.

    I agree, Dasani water in a can would be very cool.
    I do not know of any other Big Three 12oz caned water that is
    available for the traditional can vending machines.

    I would go ga for a 12oz can of carbonated Dasani via a
    traditional can vending machine. My gut tells me that it would
    be a vending big seller. I see more and more 12pks
    of seltzer water being sold at the grocery stores. Thoughts?

    Years ago when I worked for PBG in Denver we sold a canned water, it was even flavored. It was WAY Before its time. Didn't do well, mostly because no one could figure out if it belonged on the water aisle or on the soda aisle, so it was relegated to a "floating" spot in between.
    I can't remember if it was carbonated or not, I don't think it was.

    I can not remember the name but if I come with it I will share it with you all.

    I would assume it would taste disgusting because of the can, it might produce a metallic taste.

    I regularly drink 12oz caned Canfield Seltzer Water.
    I do have a very sensitive sence of taste and to me it
    tastes just as good as drinking it from a 16.9oz bottle.

    IMO, going by your theory, soda pop would have a metallic
    taste. Which IMO is not the case.

    Canned Dasani probably would be okay in a can because they add minerals to it.

    Purified/distilled water without added minerals (like Aqua Fina), however, would quickly pick up the metallic taste.

    I remember reading that Dasani was produced in cans early in its run, and some people commented on the metallic taste.

    I remember canned Perrier on Amtrak trains in the late 1980's. I had one of the cans but gave it to someone else to drink as I'm not a seltzer fan...was rather odd looking.
    Drink responsibly....drink soda!
