Does 6+6=4+8?

Is it just me, or would this make you uncomfortable about drinking the soda, too?  I mean, I don't see how that could have happened as an error in the normal packaging process.  (Yes, the 4-pack and the 8-pack were both inside the 12-pack, which is supposed to contain loose cans.)


  1. Yes, I would DEFINITELY be uncomfortable about drinking that soda! I assume the box didn't appear to have been tampered with?

    Very weird.

  2. It could be quite benign. Coke and Pesi have been experimenting with selling 4-packs and 8-packs for a long time, including "pilot" offerings at Wal-Marts around the country and Dollar stores. In fact, I think 4-packs have become common at various "dollar stores" as 99 cent offerings.

    It could just be that they are boxing stock prepared for Walmart--might be an exceptional case or an error, but seems like the kind of error that would be most likely to occur around Labor Day or July 4, or some holiday involving spikes in soda drinkage.

    That's my speculation!
