Self-Icing Coke

From Shiny Shiny comes the news of the development of soft-drinks that will form ice inside the bottle–ice composed of the product, so that distasteful dilution does not occur. A dynamite idea…especially in hot places like Lake Havasu. Bring it on.


Coca Cola has found a way to make every bottle of fizz ice-cold, without the ice. The new bottles, which are apparently to be trialled with Sprite first, go ice cold when the cap is unscrewed without the use of water which could dilute the drink. In order to work they have to be stored at a particular temperature to begin with, so there are appropriate Coke vending machines being created for the bottles.

 If successful, the bottles might be extended to Coke and Diet Coke. Since warm Coke is just about as disgusting as cool tea, I’m all for it, but I hope the bottles are still recyclable.

WHAT!!!! Peanuts in coke???!?!

Never seen it, never heard of it….

Although, when I was a child, my FAVORITE after-school snack was a peanut butter sandwich and a bottle of coke shared between my brother, sister and me. And some chips if we could convince my mom that it went with the sandwich!


I’ll have to try that.


Jayleigh, what you’re saying makes sense to me. I’m not a chemist, though, and really have no idea how it works. I thought of that earlier. If I have the cans at home, do I have to get them to a certain temperature for the icing to begin? What if I then put them in an ice chest? Will it work?

We’ll see, I suppose.

Do you put peanuts in coke? I don’t, although I’m seen many people do it, and I have a time or two. Doesn’t really appeal to me.


Have you ever seen those “cans” of Starbucks that you can buy at the grocery store? You open up the can and it begins a chemical reaction (like those stick on heating pads) in the outer walls of the can. It doesn’t have anything to do with the coffee inside, just the oxidation of the ferrous metal shavings in the compartment in the bottom of the can.

That was nerdy, wasn’t it?

I love that they can make coke cold in a similar manner. MMMMMmmm.

But I have a question: if you have to store the drink at a particular temperature to begin with, then why even bother with the funky containers? Wouldn’t it be simpler to have that “particular temperature” be approximately 35 degrees fahrenheit?


Thanks, Jana. I was able to send pictures to Sharon later last night. I’m on wireless here in the RV park, and sometimes it’s good and sometimes it’s not. We’re across the street from a sheriff’s station with a huge tower. Lots of intereference.

I appreciate the suggestion. It’s always something, isn’t it.


Sis. Buxton – I have had trouble e-mailing photos and realized it was my Norton Security not allowing the pictures to send. I had to turn off the outgoing mail security scan. Afterwards, the pics sent just fine.


Sharon, I tried to email a picture earlier this evening, but it wouldn’t go through. Our internet service is slow sometimes, and the picture files are really big. I’ll keep trying, though.


It makes it a little hard to pour some good ole penuts into the bottle if there is ice in it. I will have to keep a few bottles of the original on hand for that purpose. lol
Your sweet friend wants your phone number, but I don’t have it. You might call her and yes, she does want a picture
