As a kid growing up, soda was my fuel. Coke, 7UP and Fanta kept me going for hours on end during those hot summer days when all we needed was a soccer ball..

The past
As long as I can remember, I’ve collected things.
Comic books, action figures, trading cards; you name it, I collected it.
Eventually, becoming a soda can collector was inevitable.
It was an easy way to collect something, because I loved soda and there were all sorts of cool cans available back in a time when I didn’t have a clue what Michael Jackson meant with “shamone!”..
It didn’t take long before people around me were aware of my new collection. Family, friends, neighbors; everyone helped me in my quest to become the soda can king.
It took some time, but I succeeded. After a few years I called it quits however.
The cans were taking up too much space and I decided they needed to go.
Foolish little boy.
The present
As of today, I still get a kick out of soda cans that feature nice graphics.
I know I’ll never collect the empty cans in the same way I did before, but I still save a few cans here and there.
Last week, my heart skipped a beat when I saw 7UP had decided to bring back some of their old designs.
I have to confess: within two days, I collected all six different designs..
Still got it!
My favorite design?
It starts with an ‘F’ and ends with 'ido Dido’..
Now, run along children and find those great designs for yourself!
“It’s cool to be clear!”
