Pepsi fan breaks world record with 12,402 can-collection

Talk about a true Pepsi fan. 

A man in Italy was recently recognized for the second time as having the most Pepsi cans in the world. 

Christian Cavaletti, 50, of Milan, Italy, has 12,402 cans of Pepsi, the world’s largest Pepsi can collection, according to Guinness World Records.

Cavaletti held the previous record, which was made in 2004. At the time, he had 4,391 Pepsi cans. 

His collection was recounted in March and he was awarded again by Guinness last week, according to a press release.

Cavaletti – whose favorite Pepsi flavor is the wild cherry edition from the U.S. – started accumulating Pepsi cans in June 1989. 

He keeps his collection on shelves in his basement organized chronologically and by country, Guinness reported. Cavaletti has Pepsi cans from 81 countries.

His collection includes the first-ever Pepsi can edition from 1948, a 1960s prototype, and a reproduction of the "space can" which was made in 1985 for the STS 51-F space mission, also known as Spacelab-2.
