TSA lifts ban on Star Wars Coke bottles
(CNN) – Bright suns, Star Wars fans: The TSA has lifted a ban on thermal, detonator-shaped Coke bottles, which were originally considered the agency as an explosive replica.
The bottles, which are sold exclusively in Star Wars countries in Anaheim and Orlando, are in the shape of small spheres that look like either a droid or a thermal detonator, depending on your point of view.
Disney and Coca Cola have teamed to make these special beverage cans for the new Star Wars country.
@Ask TSA replied, "Replicas and inert explosives are not allowed in carry-on bags or in checked bags." Items might reasonably be seen by some as replica hand grenades, "but that the agency would go on to review the problem."
Well, this review is over and it's good news for Disney, which is currently on Thursday opened the second Galaxy's Edge location in Orlando.
In a reverse, a TSA spokeswoman said in a recent statement to CNN, "We completed our review and instructed our officials to use this as an oversized liquid to treat. Because these bottles contain liquids that are larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters). they should be stored in checked luggage or emptied for take-away. "
At $ 5.49, the bottles are among the cheapest souvenirs available at Galaxy's Edge, and they're popular: Disney has limited guests to three bottles per transaction to prevent hoarding." 19659011] TSA routinely confiscates toys that look like weapons. “/>

In April, CNN Business brought out the exclusive message that Coca-Cola and Disney A partnership was formed to create the bottles, which were designed with logos of cola, diet cola, sprite and dasani water in aurebesh, the fictional language of star wars.
Susan Propp, vice president for Coke's strategic partnership marketing, told CNN, "I think the guests will probably drink one to stay hydrated or enjoy it in the country, and then probably one in their Ruc throw ksack and take it home. "
