Thread: Interesting New Container

  1. #1

    Default Interesting New Container

    I recently found a small aluminium container in a local Triathlon shop (which I wandered into by mistake, don't worry)

    You get a power drink and the pot for 1.85p!

    Here is what you buy in the shop:

    And here is what it looks like after paint-stripping.

    These are very light, slightly narrower and a bit taller than a film pot and, as you can see by the insert picture of the lid it has a heat sealed rubber seal as an integral part of he lid. I have left one completely submerged for 48hrs with ZERO ingress of water or dampness.

    That's it.
    (so far!)

    Very impressive, and so much nicer than a film can!

    It tasted like 'pink grapefruit' obviously.

    The question is: Can you swim, cycle, and run any better?

    Any other flavours apart from grapefruit? Can't have grapefruit with my meds.

    Not really a problem as I cant say I am over keen on grapefruit.
