Gecko in a can

The "gecko in a can" was given out during the Fallout 2 launch party. The side of the can includes serving suggestions, tips, and an ingredient list. Many are still unopened in fear of what may be inside.

The item was originally intended to be "dog meat in a can" but when plushes were sought out, the only ones found had a big red ribbon on them and were deemed unsuitable. So the geckos were chosen instead. The label on the side of the can reads:

Tastes great hot or cold, breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

Gecko in a Can™ is the meal for you

Serving Suggestions: open can using pull-tab (Tip: save razor-edged lid for use as a nifty survival weapon).
