Answer: canned fresh air
A Chinese millionaire named Chen Guangbiao is reportedly selling "fresh air in soft drink cans" for about 5 Chinese Yuan ($0.80) per can -- and the canned air is said to come in various flavors, such as "pristine Tibet" and "post-industrial Taiwan," the Huffington Post reported.
"Every day, we are inhaling the exhaust fumes of cars," Chen told China's Sina News last year, as news of his canned air idea began circulating in the media. "And now we have pollution-free air to sell -- a benefit to everyone's health and longevity."
According to the Huffington Post, Chen has been selling his product since September 2012. At the time, he told reporters that more than $800 worth of canned air was sold in Beijing on the first day alone.
