Ask  the guys who sell the can holders/ condoms!

 

For me wrt soft drinks, is that they don't fit the shelf spacing in my fridge. For beer, I buy bottles.

hopefully Chang will leave things alone, so far so good, "if it ain't broke don't fix it"

They fit into shop fridges a lot better

...and you can fit more of them into your home fridge too.

Quite simply a device to make more profit. The amount of beer is less than before. 

Nope, as been stated several times already....taller and slimmer cans but SAME volume.

now have adopted a different can size, same volume but taller and a more child friendly circumference.

It is all to do with efficiency? Smaller diameter tall cans take up less space for shelf display etc.. and they chill faster.

Had not the volume decreased?

From 330 > 220ml and 500 > 490ml?

Or have I confused it with something else?

Too true any beer or piss water (larger) in a can is rubish any way and only deserves to be necked. No point in sampling pish now is there.

Watney's Party Fours and Party Sevens. Ah, those were the days!

Same thing happened with Coke and Fanta and Pepsi. 

Maybe cans that are more dick-shaped are more popular in Thailand?

That was Chang bottles.

The slimmer cans allow more to be stored in the same space, chill quicker.

Whatever the reason, when they were introduced 3 or 4 years ago, sales increased, was more accepted by the public etc.  Simple marketing letting the public drive the product.

I don't have a definitive answer, but what I do know is the soft drinks in the slim cans chill down much faster than the shorter, fatter predecessors.
