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.
