Fun Fact – On the can design: “The colorful can illustration, created by Moxie Sozo in Boulder, Colorado, depicts a southwest scene of a cluster of prickly pear cacti in bloom, nestled in the midst of several sharp, spikey creatures. A desert wasp, a scorpion, a lizard, and even a cleverly hidden boot spur all pose a perilous situation and threaten the airy balloons floating overhead.
