We’ve been obsessed with brain teasers and puzzles lately, so when we found out that there were a couple of hidden symbols on our Coke cans, we jumped at the chance to figure it out. If you’re a Coke drinker, you might know already that the soda company recently released new winter-themed cans, designed with adorable polar bears. But it’s not so obvious that these too-cute cartoons are hiding a couple of secrets.
One eagle-eyed Coke fan shared the hidden symbols with fellow fans on the website Reddit. The fan, under the username sunkist268, explained that the limited-edition cans are hiding Coke-themed products on the polar bears themselves. Take a look at the image below and see how long it takes you to spot them!
The eyes on the Coca-Cola bears are bottle caps, and the shine on the nose is a bottle. from mildlyinteresting
If you were able to locate the bottle caps on the polar bear’s eyes, we’re pretty darn impressed. But if you also eyed the small Coke bottle on the polar bear’s nose, we’re even more floored. Confession: We certainly wouldn’t have thought to look for these objects right off the bat. We’d be too distracted by how adorable the polar bears are — hidden symbols or not — and then be too enthralled by the taste of our carbonated beverage of choice.
In short, sunkist268 definitely deserves some major props for being so observant. Thanks to this image, we’ll definitely be on the lookout for these symbols the next time we grab a Coke. In fact, maybe we should keep an eye out for other hidden symbols in other cans, bottles, and cups out there. You never know where the next puzzle will be hiding, so it never hurts to take a closer look!
