I got two cases with empty cans showing off previous Pepsi logos and designs, and then finally I got a case with six full Pepsi cans showing the new design.

They even sent me a DVD to show me some history.” “ What’s interesting to me is that they reached out to me as one of 25 people to get this news. They presumed (correctly) that I’d blog about it.
