Update March 23, 2022

I am way behind in updating this website - but have been very active on the POPCAN.ORG Facebook Group.  Please like that page for updates.

I did just update the Star Wars Cans Page - with a list of known Star Wars Cans, with what I have and NEED.  Please contact me on Facebook if you have an update on that list, or any for sale. 


(Update February 13, 2008)

Mountain Dew Green Label Art Series - 6 cans (Bottles) in the first series is out now!  YEA!  (Series 2 coming Aug 2008)  (Also in the last update, I updated the Pepsi Can Design list a little.)


Plus in more Dew News - I believe 1 of these will be the new Dew Flavor!  YUM!  Maybe they will be smart at make all 3.  HEY PEPSI - Send me some to try, I will be happy to be a taste tester for these


(Update January 12, 2008)

WOW - Almost a year since I last updated this website.  I haven't stopped collecting, but many other interests have come ahead of my collection.  A lot of my collection is boxed up in storage, while I still look & find new cans.... which I almost immediately box up and send to storage.  Hopefully some day I will be able to unbox everything and get "back" into my cans.

2007 was a busy year.  A SUPER thing has happened to popcan collectors like myself - Pepsi has been putting all kinds of special cans out.  I've been trying to keep up - I already have around 22 different cans.... but I already know I'm missing a lot.  I was trying to find a list or checklist of the cans that Pepsi put out, and can't find nothing - so I guess I better start one here.  PLEASE e-mail me at popcan @ coan.net if you have anything to add to this list.  Even though I would love to trade what I have for what I don't, I'm not setup to do that right now... like I said above, as soon as I get the cans, I have very little room so they are boxed up and sent to storage.  Anyway, here is a list:

  • #1 - Your Pepsi (have)
  • #3 - Emoticon  (also found in 8oz cans)
  • #4 - DJ & CD's (have)
  • #5 - Global Festivals (have no # w/ IN State Fair) (have #5 8oz can)
  • #7 - Racing (have)
  • #10 - Car Culture (have)
  • #13 - MLB Clutch Play (have)

Please note, I have pictures of the first 22 can designs as found on http://www.pepsigallery.com/ - but I'm unsure of the # - since either I have the can with no number, or don't have the can:

  • #? - Amusement Park (have no # w/ Holiday World IN) (have no # w/ Navy Pier, Chicago)
  • #? - Scoreboard (have no # w/ Ball St. Football)
  • #? - MLB Teams (have no # w/ Cin. Reds) (have no # w/ Indians Fireworks)
  • #? - Photo Booth
  • #? - International Travel
  • #? - Groovy
  • #? - Large Emoticon
  • #? - Tech Bits
  • #? - Guitar Rock
  • #? - China Circles
  • #? - Stars
  • #? - Video Games
  • #? - Summer Fun
  • #? - Winter Snowboard
  • #? - Dancing People
  • #21 - MTV / Video Music Awards 2007 (vma.mtv.com)

The following are even newer cans - most seen towards the end of 2007, and now into 2008.... none of which are listed on the http://www.pepsigallery.com website.

  • #23 - ???
  • #24 - BNR - Love Everyone (have)
  • #25 - I have an idea (have)
  • #26 - ???
  • #27 - Throw Back a Pepsi (have)
  • #28 - Move Along - smash.yahoo.com/AAR
  • #29 - ???
  • #30 - "shirt" - Pepsibydesign.com (have)
  • #31 - NFL.com - Rookies
  • #32 - ???
  • #33 - ???
  • #34 - ???
  • #35 - New Face of Art (have)
  • #36 - Impossible is nothing - Adidas - StartMyStory.com (have)
  • No # - City Year - YourCityYear.com (have)
  • No # - Winner Design - J.J. West Nyack, NJ - DesignOurPepsiCan.com (have)
  •  Thanks Justin & others who have helped me fill out this list some more.

PLEASE e-mail me at popcan @ coan.net if you have anything to add to this list.  I take what information I get and add to this list.


(Update January 20, 2007)

Wow - I've had my popcan site on the internet for about 10 years now.  Sometimes I "forget" about it for awhile (Like the last update was over a year ago), and I always have plans to do more with this site - but I have many "hobbies" and many times I just get out of "can" hobby for awhile and concentrate on other projects that I do.

But I was looking at Pepsi's website earlier today, and it looks like they are going to be putting a lot of special cans out in the upcoming months - so that perked my interest enough to make me come back and post something new here.

First - Go to the Pepsi website, enter to get a code - then watch Super Bowl XLI in February 2007 to see if you win.  What you win is the above can worth $10,000!  (Jewel & such).  Oh, and you also get free Super Bowl tickets for life - but who cares about that - what a cool can!

Second, Pepsi shows 22 special cans they are planning on releasing.  My guess, probable a new design every 2-4 weeks.  I'm sure we will know more soon.  Here are 3 of the 22:  (Looks like the "Your Pepsi" can might be the first out?




(Update November 21, 2005)

OK, everything got moved to a better server - domain name renewed - everything should be back to normal.  I have some plans for this site - want to open it up to more users - let "users" submit news and such, hopefully things to make this site better.  On to some news:

Coke announced 3 new energy drinks for 2006.  ADVANCE by POWERade, a second Full Throttle flavour (Fury), and Tab Energy.

Holiday 2005 - Coke is adding the Coca-Cola Polar Bears to their US lineup, which some in other countries have seen more of then the US has.  I have already seen the Coke Bottles, plus some of the Coke products with the holiday design on them.  The brands of Coke Classic, Caffeine Free Coke, Coke Zero, C2, Diet, and Caffeine Free Diet (should) feature the Polar Bears on the cans.  (I will try to get a picture up soon.)


(Update November 16, 2005)

I'M SICK OF IT!  A few year ago, I paid a site to forward the POPCAN.ORG domain name & mail and everything to a different site.  Since then, the site started to offer this service free BUT they also stuck pop-up ads on the forwarded sites.  Since I paid for my service, I do not think my site should get the pop-up ads.  They had worked with me for awhile to keep the ad's away, but it is a constant fight to make them stop putting pop-up ad's on my site.  SO, as of today, I will be playing around with moving the domain name / pointer and such so the pop-up ad's will not be around anymore.  So during the next few days, there might be a little bit of down-time for this site while the domain name pointer and such are figured out.  The true place of POPCAN.ORG is:  http://coan.net/popcan/

Hopefully if things go smoothly, the name POPCAN.ORG will continue to work and no one will see a difference. 


(Update November 4, 2005)

Coke will phase out Vanilla Coke, Vanilla Diet Coke, and Diet Coke with Lemon in the US by the end of the year (2005).  Vanilla Coke & Vanilla Diet Coke will be phased out in the UK early next year.

Coca-Cola plans to introduce Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke & Black Cherry Vanilla Coke January 2006

April/May 2005 - Pepsi Lime & Diet Pepsi Lime.  Pepsi can't let Coke have all the Lime flavored cola's.

Look for a new Mountain Dew Logo later in 2005.  Plus with the success of Code Red, Live Wire, and the so-so of the Pitch Black Mountain Dew - Expect more of the same in 2005!


Diet Coke with Splenda - 2nd Qtr 2005.  I've also heard of a Coke Zero as diet version of Coke, but not sure if these 2 are the same or not.

Is Coke going after Mountain Dew yet again?  (remember Mellow Yellow, Surge, etc..) - Well possible look for something called "Vault" in 2005

Coffee Flavored Cola's - Coke may try this again.  ("Blak" or "Makkio" ?????)

(Update February 9, 2005 - Updated Feb 14)

Sorry that I do not keep these pages updated.  I have some plans to try to make this into a "community" page where anyone will be able to submit news about new cans, etc...  Don't know when I'll do this, but it is planned.

Here is some "can" news.

Pepsi - With the success of "limited edition" drinks, for Halloween it brought out Pitch Black Mountain Dew.  For Christmas 2004, it is bringing out a holiday Pepsi flavored drink.  (I have tried it, and it's not very good in my opinion.)

Dr. Pepper is bringing out Cherry Vanilla Dr Pepper (and a Diet version).  I believe it is out in test markets now, and will be nation wide in Jan 2005.  This is the "first offering in the company's new Fountain Classics line." - as quoted from 7up's website.

Also in the 7up family of cans, 6 artist helped design special cans for the 2004 grammys. 
-- Michael McDonald for 7 UP
-- John Ondrasik for Diet 7 UP
-- Wynonna for Cherry 7 UP
-- Brian McKnight for Sunkist
-- Dave Koz for Canada Dry Ginger Ale
-- Randy Travis for A & W Root Beer.

I'm still looking for the Canada Dry can, but hopefully I should be able to provide a picture of these cans at some point.
