    I've never been one to collect SW food premiums but when I saw Pringles cans with names like Boba Fett BBQ and Chewbacca Cheddar Cheese at Walmart I just had to scoop them up! So my question is: Do I eat the chips and save the cans or just keep everything mint? If I keep them as they are will they eventually stink or anything? And will that make potential value go up or down?

    Thanks for any help! :)

    Most of the suggestions I've read over the years say to take any food product out of the packaging and that's what I've always done. And in this case you can easily remove the product (i.e. eat it :p) without doing any damage to the packaging.

    And if you branch out into collecting soda cans, be sure they are empty. Many collectors have found out the hard way that they can leak or explode with age. If you don't empty them at least store them where they can't do any damage if the inevitable happens..

    Thanks for the advice, I don't plan on continuing food premium collecting since I already have too little space but I'll be sure to empty any SW soda cans I come across! :)
