Fake Pepsi Products Being Made at Dirty Factory Actually Look Like Real Softdrinks

These days, a lot of counterfeiters are so good at copying various products that the fakes now look nearly the same as the original! Many people who are not experts in a particular product could easily think that the fake is actually an original.

Sadly, counterfeiters are not just copying bags, shoes, toys, and other non-food products, they are also producing fake food products as well! What’s sad is that these items might not even be fit for human consumption but easily pass off as authentic because they look and smell like the real thing.

Photos taken inside a dirty factory shows how some unscrupulous individuals are profiting off fake Pepsi products. In the factory that is believed to be somewhere in Iraq, some people could be seen refilling bottles of Pepsi with a dark liquid of unknown composition.

According to Ur Daily Journal, kids were paid to collect used Pepsi bottles wherever they could find these. Then, the bottles are crudely washed and filled with the black liquid seen in the photos.

Amazingly, these people even bought compressed gas to put into the bottles to simulate the bubbles that come out from the liquid when you shake the bottle or open the cap. Used caps were also used to cover the bottles.

One photo shows someone showing off the finished products – and these actually looked like the real thing that many would have surely purchased these fake Pepsi products without knowing these are not real.

It is also possible that many of those who bought the fake products had no idea what the real products tasted like; thus, the fake ones are actually thriving in the country.

The licensed Pepsi bottler in Iraq is applying for copyright on the trademark to prevent fake products from entering the market again; however, it is likely that counterfeiters could still find ways to sell their products. After all, authentic Pepsi bottles are being used to package and sell these products!
