I don’t know about you but I love my cold icy drinks in the Summer. I especially love cola slushie from the local 7-11 and Iced Coffees. What’s your favorite Summertime drink?

Take any bottle of soda, and get it to freeze on command! This “super cool” trick works with cans of soda as well

WARNING: Leaving soda in the freezer too long can result in failure of the container, and a big mess. Glass bottles are not recommended, as the ice expands when freezing and can shatter the glass explosively. Use of video content is at own risk.

The anomaly of “self freezing soda” has been observed by many people, usually by accident. Some people put a soda in the freezer to chill it, but then forget about it. When they’ve remembered and gone to get it, it’s liquid until they open it, leaving them puzzled. Some people have noticed the effect by leaving the soda outside in cold temperatures.

There is a vending machine in Hong Kong that sells supercooled Coke bottles, and the instructions to trigger nucleation is the same as in this video, however they recommend taking a sip when the cap is on. I believe this is to increase the chances of impurities being introduced into the liquid, making nucleation more likely.

In this video, you’ll learn how to turn any ordinary liquid soda into instant slush like magic!
