Self heating cans pulled

BevNet has an article about those calcium oxide based self heating cans we took apart, despite our best efforts we couldn’t get them to be very dangerous – “Once considered the “next big thing” by excited coffee lovers and technology buffs alike, the Wolfgang Puck Self-Heating Latte is being withdrawn from shelves because of concerns that many of the innovative cans are defective, and possibly dangerous.” – [via] Link.

  1. Thank god. You know what’s even better than a recyclable aluminum can? A big lump of disposable concrete. Whoever greenlighted these things really needs to revisit their idea of waste management ethics.

    Then again, maybe they just have.

  2. Agreed, I hope this ruins Wolfgang Puck. I am a big fan of coffee and I’ve tried just about every canned coffee on the market, but I could never bring myself to buy one of these.

    It’s funny that it’s called ‘Once considered the “next big thing” by excited coffee lovers and technology buffs alike’ — I’m both and I’ve hated idea of this product since the day I first heard of it.
