New Aluminum Can Blends Pop Music And Soda Pop

Stuttgart, Germany -- A new type of energy drink is letting German consumers blend soda pop and pop music in the same can.

That's because the "PopMusic" brand of soda includes a built-in radio that uses the aluminum can as an antenna to tune into a pre-selected station.

The can is currently broadcasting "canned music" from a Munich-based rock station, but company spokesman Wolfram Juretzek figures sports, jazz and, of course, pop will also be popular formats for the soda.

So far, the radio cans are only available in Germany but Juretzek figures they'll be available in the United States by March, 2005.

Although the pop music cans are expected to cost more than regular sodas, Juretzek doesn't think consumers will mind since the batteries last for at least a year -- long after the soda has gone flat.
