Reports of a dead fish found in a Pepsi bottle by a woman in Xi’an have been making the rounds in Chinese media outlets recently.

Reportedly, the woman, surnamed Wen, bought a 600ml bottle of Pepsi from a supermarket on June 4. When she got home and took a gulp, she suddenly spotted a gold-colored object floating in the fizzy black abyss. After taking a closer look, Wen noticed that it was a dead goldfish.

Sickened, Wen then rushed back to the supermarket to tell the staff. The staff declared that the fish had in fact been dead for some time, though were pretty perplexed as to how it ended up in the bottle. Netizens have expressed equal surprise, with one user joking, “It must have been the work of Liu Qian!” (a famous Taiwanese magician). Some have also speculated that it could have been a ploy by a rival supermarket, though as of now, no one really knows the answer.

Pepsi already had someone claiming that they found a rat in a bottle of Mountain Dew. The rat would have dissolved into jelly due to the chemicals in the soft drink, as would the goldfish.

souds like a hoax you would notice sth solid in the bottle just by holding it. you would definitely see the colors before taking a drink. she wants money and china is on a quest to muddy the reputation of foreign brands.

Mmmmm I never tried to put a gold fish in coca or pepsi for more than a day but I guess it would quickly be melted out. Most likely between the time the bottle is filled in and it has been open by a customer quite a few days or weeks minimum are gone. That fish seems in a perfect condition...
