    Can soda in care packages???

    Advertisements
    So my DB loves this special soda and I am sure he would like to have it. But I am not sure if it will be okay to pack. Anyone ever pack soda in a CP before???

    I think people have, but even with wrapping it well it has the possibility of breaking open and spraying the package. I know the post office will ask if there is anything liquid inside the package and may not let it be shipped. It can delay or potentially not even be allowed to continue to it's destination if it breaks open.

    I had the same question when I first started sending CPs! The answer is do not! If it gets too hot it will explode. See if they make it in a powdered form. Sorry

    I sent DH canned energy drinks. Wrapped each can in a paper towel and then placed them in a ziploc bag as well. He never had an issue with them leaking/opening.

    I sent bottled Fanta in each and every CP, never had a problem. It wasn't in cans but plastic bottle, but if you put the cans in zip lock bags or something, it should be fine. I also sent them during the summer, when it was hot.

    Totally fine just stick them each individually in gallon zip lock bags and pad the box. I mailed DH cans and cans and cans of monster no problems.

    I think I sent DH monster during the cooler months. I did the same thing with the paper towel and ziploc.
