Coca-Cola Recently Launched Self-Freezing Bottle in Japan
We’ve all tried those horrible Cola slushies in gas stations and 7-Eleven’s around the world. They tried to mimic the flavor of the real Coca-Cola but failed miserably.
Now you no longer need to settle for second best. Well, at least in Japan.
Throughout the northeast of Japan, over 1,000 machines have been set up in various 7-Eleven shops which have magical,Coca-Cola self-freezing beverages. But don’t get too excited. Coca-Cola has shared no secrets on their future plans with the freezing bottle, so many Japanese and those living in other countries will simply have to wait.
Since these bottles need to be stored at special temperatures, you can’t simply walk in and grab a bottle from the shelf. To get your hands on one of these drinks, you must purchase a drink card from one of the participating 7-Eleven stores and insert it into the vending machine. Once you’ve done this, you will receive a regular looking bottle of coke and must follow the three crucial instructions.
2. Take a refreshing sip
3. Turn the bottle upside down
Almost instantly the liquid in the bottle will begin to thicken and freeze, turning into a slushie which remains frozen for around an hour if kept in the bottle.
For all those science lovers out there, here is a little explanation.
Inside the vending machine, the bottles are stored at temperatures below 25F (-4 C). Once the seal on the bottle is broken, bubbles of carbon dioxide are created, which then turn into ice crystals and freeze the liquid.
So that’s it folks, better book your tickets to northern Japan.
