Pop Top Cans

Postby Rainier70 » Fri May 03, 2019 4:50 pm

It sure seems like every manufacture has jumped on the band wagon and is making their canned foods with pop tops. I find these to be a real pain. Not only can't you stack them, but even with lots of cushioning between, a good jostle will pop some of their seals.

Admittedly I do travel a lot of very rough roads, but I would rather carry my glass canning jars than the pop tops. With cushioning the glass jars do fine, and inevitably the pop tops pop! :shock:

Out of curiosity, have you tried carrying those pop top cans on their sides? If so, did that help?

:lol:

You have a good point, and the same grill I have. And that is why I have a freezer with me too. :)

No, I haven't tried that. I'm not sure it will help. It will make more of a mess though. :shock: :lol:

I try not to include them at all, but sometimes at little country stores where I resupply, it maybe the only kind they have in something like tomato sauce etc.

I'd like to throw a caution out there to others so that you would check the seals on your cans carefully if you carry them in your food supplies.
