"OddPop" is a healthy alternative to sugary drinks, featuring carbonated flavoured coconut water sweetened with imperfect fruits. The concept aims to reduce children's sugar intake and combat food waste. Its unique packaging design incorporates interactive, stackable elements to engage kids, utilizing eco-friendly aluminum cans. The tagline "Not Your Average Fruit" and artistic fruit graphics, combined with informative dielines, create a distinctive, eco-conscious product.
