Right, but it is all about getting you to buy more. It doesn't really matter if the sugar and water are even considered free. If they can get you to buy two cans of pop instead of one (by reducing the quantity in the can), then they just made more money.

I'm not saying that I wouldn't buy this product. I am just saying that consumers should be aware of when you are getting less of a product for more money. If getting cold soda in 3 minutes without a refrigerator is important, then this would be the product to buy.
