Never used them but the general rule of thumb is if a highly carbonated beverage was in them originally then they should be fine. If you are overly concerned try one and go from there. If not, body armor could be in your future.....LOL!

I think the cap would blow off before the bottle broke.

My uncle told me about the root beer my grandma used to make and naturally carbonate. He told me if they overcarbed the cap would fail, not the bottle. That was just the old returnable soda bottles. The only Jolly Pumpkin bottle I have is at least that tough.
