So, this seems to be the second time I had to clean my refrigerator due to “coke can” exploding its guts out. Last time it was nothing similar to what I have to show you. Do note that there are three other cans sitting right beside the can that went kaboooom overnight, leaving an ugly mess for me to clean ! Some images are not sharp enough but still gives you an idea of what happened.
The top of can shows you exactly what happened, and do look at the amount of coke left inside the can after the lid got popped out ! Lid/top was bent as if it was run over by something, at the bottom of can you can see that it tried to expand but thanks to weaker lid at top bigger mess was avoided, because if the bottom had ruptured it would have spilled all the coke inside the fridge. For those wondering that, yaa maybe the can was chilled before putting it in, well that would be incorrect, all cans placed inside are at room temperature prior to their storage and above all none of them are shaken before they get stored. So to conclude, what happened overnight was due to following reasons :
1. Cheapness of Coke Can (who is responsible ? The makers aka Coca-Cola) [NOTE: IT was not in FREEZER, other Cans were not affected]
2. Bad Karma !
It’s up to the users reading this post, to come up with their own reasons as to why would the can would rupture the way it did. For me this is not the first time, and till i keep drinking coca-cola zero and storing it at work like i do with all other drinks, it wont be last time either. Next time I will try to get temperature of inside the refrigeration unit and that of the can that ruptures leaving nothing to drink, and lots of mess to clean up. Do share your horror stories if any of such a similar incident.
