Bottle Tops Review
Bottle Tops is perhaps one of the coolest As Seen On TV products in history. I know what you are saying. "There's been a lot of As Seen On TV Products and How can Bottle Tops be the coolest?" Well, maybe it's a stretch, but my Bottle Tops Review might answer that question.
First, the thing that makes these stupid products cool is that each one attempts to solve a seemingly simple problem which faces us in our normal everyday lives. When one of these products turns out to be something so simple that we say "I could have invented that thing", then it becomes cool.
In this case Bottle Tops is exactly that. What a simple solution to a common problem. We all have left cans half full and ended up tossing them out wasting it's contents. Or, we've left them sitting around too long only to take a sip and our drink is flat. If you throw in how easy it is to spill cans and make a mess because there's no way to top a can, then you realize there is a problem that needs solving.
But, who would of thought of turning your can into a bottle? Me neither but it's awesome!
Let's watch the Bottle Tops commercial below and while we're laughing at the As Seen On TV sales pitch, let's take note of the how helpful this product is.
Bottle Tops As Seen On TV
I know, I know, the bottle top commercial is ridiculous but remember it is an As Seen On TV product. Oh, I guess this bottle tops review wouldn't be that good if I didn't point out that the manufacturer actually refers to their product as Bottle Top and not Bottle Tops.
Anyway, my favorite part of the commercial is the Snap noise dubbed in for effect. But in fairness to the producers of this commercial when you snap a bottle top onto your can it really does make a loud snap, just not the one you hear above. Now the commercial itself is pretty stupid.
I don't know many people dumb enough to put an open can in the refrigerator door but I suppose it could happen. I was never really concerned with spills in the fridge because I think leaving an opened can anywhere in the fridge is kind of gross, but my kids seem to love knocking over cans just like the kids in commercial. But I guess preventing refrigerator spills is a bottle top benefit.
My need for Bottle Tops was strictly the need to curb my soda wasting due to not drinking the entire 12oz can I would open for my caffeine fix. I can't remember ever finishing an entire can but I hate the taste of soda in a two liter plastic bottle. By the way there is NOTHING better than soda in a glass bottle but you don't see them packaged that way anymore, and if you do, they are really expensive.
I tried buying those tiny little cans for awhile but they're pretty pricey too. Bottle Tops provided the solution for me. You really do just snap them on and then your can turns into a bottle. It's almost impossible to shake a bottle top loose and they will not fall off under any circumstance. In fact, the only negative thing I have to say in my bottle tops review is that it's really tough to get the bottle top off the can after it's empty. You really have to develop a style to remove these little buggers and my kids cannot pry these things off by themselves. If yanked, slammed and twisted off the bottle tops but I'm learning.
The good news is that no matter how tough I am on the bottle tops, I've yet to damage a single one. They're Great.
One thing the commercial pointed out was how handy Bottle Tops are for energy drinks. I never thought about it, but many energy drinks come in cans and if you want to take them with you while you are on a bike ride or a hike you're pretty much out of luck unless you transfer them to a water bottle or canteen.
For some energy drinks that's fine but the carbonated ones will go flat quickly in a plastic bottle. Bottle tops allows you to leave the energy drink in the can and bring it along anywhere you want to go.
So I'm sold on these things and I enjoy using them but the perhaps the best thing to come out of my bottle top purchase was the bonus gift. The Commercial above did not mention the bonus so I've included the newer bottle tops commercial so we can see the gift in action. It's called the Can Top Popper and it's a life saver. I would have bought one of these on it's own. The Can Top Popper is the perfect little tool used to pop the tabs on cans instead of breaking your nails or searching for some weird utensil to pry off the tab. I've spent my entire life asking people to open my Diet Cokes because I can never do it by myself.
So when you buy bottle tops you get this Can Top Popper as a bonus gift but you also get 6 additional bottle tops for a total of 12. That's not a bad deal at all. It probably wouldn't be necessary but you could actually pop the tops on a 12 pack with your Can Top Popper and then but a bottle top on every can. Not very likely unless you live in a Frat house, but you could do it.

Buy Bottle Tops
So what if you want to Buy Bottle Tops, are all offers that same? Well all I can say to that is, "who knows?". Every time I go to buy an as seen on TV product, it seems I never get the latest and greatest offer. But as far as I know, the Bottle Tops offer is standard.
6 Bottle Tops
- Bonus Can Top Popper
- Plus 6 Additional Bottle Tops
- Cost: $10 for six bottle tops plus $6.99 shipping and handling
But Wait There's More (lol)
There's an additional $6.99 Shipping and handling charge for the bonus 6 bottle tops so the entire deal will cost about $24. Is it worth it? You'll have to decide for yourself but as I've said in this review, it was worth it to me. These things are pretty sturdy so I doubt you'll ever have to buy another set of bottle tops and the conversation these little things will generate is probably worth the price. I'm telling you, they're cool to have around, your friends will love them.
