My 3000th can!!!

On April 11, 2011, I began my can collection.  Less than three years later, I have logged the 3000th can on my main collection site.

I recently received a box of cans in the mail.  And it was that box that held can #3000.  Which can was it?

It was this extruded steel, pull top Sprite can from Israel.  Not only is it the 3000th can in my collection, it's also my 1st can from Israel.

One of the things I like about this can is the list of ingredients.  It doesn't speak of synthetic chemicals or man-made compounds, it simply lists: water, sugar, flavours, CO2 and preservatives.  But the most amazing thing is that it took this can around three decades to travel nearly halfway around the world just to end up on my shelf.  That's worth the "3000" title to me!

  2. Awesome!, congratulations, in toltol now, I have 517 woot!!

    1. That's a good-sized collection too! Just be careful, it's easy for it to get out of control, haha.

  3. I have your 3001 can, it's a coke can from Isreal. Mint
