Coca-Cola Japan Launches Frozen Coke and Fanta Pouches You Can Drink On The Go

A post shared by Markie_devo (@markie_devo) on

Frozen Cokes hit the spot on a hot summer day, as you can typically run down to 7-Eleven or a movie theater and chug one of these cold slush drinks.

While we love them here in the U.S., they must be more of a hit in Japan, because Coca-Cola announced it will be releasing Frozen Lemon Coke and Fanta pouches you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home.

The Frozen Fantas will consist of the orange and grape flavors, and all the drinks will be available frozen or unfrozen.

This is basically Coke’s version of Capri Sun that you stick in the freezer until slushed up, which is what many do with Capri Sun, as well.

According to the Independent, these pouches have been in the works for eight years, as they tried to get the formula right. Someone should have told them that they can just leave a bottle of Coke in the freezer for 45 minutes and get the same result.

It’s early, so there’s no word if this could ever reach the U.S., but until then, you’ll have to walk to 7-Eleven, or like, just use your freezer and do it the old fashioned way.


Nigerian Court Claims Sprite And Fanta Are Potentially Super Poisonous

Popular Coca-Cola brand soft drinks Sprite and Fanta may be a little worse for you than you think, according to some recent findings in the country of Nigeria.

According to CNN, a court in Nigeria ruled that the two carbonated beverages sold in the country are “poisonous” when consumed alongside victim C. The court is ordering the manufacturer, the Nigerian Bottling Company, to place warning labels on their products indicating so.

It seems the two drinks allegedly contained a dangerously high amount of benzoic acid and sunset yellow (a food coloring known in the US as Yellow 6). When mixed with ascorbic acid, it potentially could become a high health risk for humans, forming carcinogens.

The Nigerian Bottling Company, however, is challenging the ruling. They state that the levels of benzoic acid in the drinks are within the levels approved by international food standards body Codex Alimentarius as well as the national regulator.

While the case is still ongoing, such public attention has left Nigerian consumers wary of the two sodas.

How To Make A Soda Fountain At Home Using Cardboard [WATCH]

Is this project necessary? Absolutely not. Is this project awesome? Hell freaking yes!

Using the type of engineering skill that I wish I had growing up when I was consistently losing in my school science fair, The Q YouTube channel put together a soda machine using soda bottles, cardboard, a 9V battery, some tubes and wires, a push button switch, and a DC6V mini air pump motor.

After tying together some wires, gluing the cardboard, and sticking some tubes inside the soda bottles, the end result was a DIY tap, kind of like the ones you’d see inside fast food restaurants.

Yeah, it takes a little more effort than my oversimplified description, but with a little help from the video above, this could be a fun science project or just something to do if you’re bored at home and happen to have a mini air pump motor lying around.


Is this the real life?

This Cool Trick Will Help You Unpack a Soda Box In Seconds

We’ve all been there, just home from the market, fresh pack of soda in hand, then comes the tedious first-world problem of having to unpack each can, one at a time into your ice box. By the end of the process, your back is in shambles, and you’ve somehow grown a disdain for your mother for not having shown you a better way.

Fret no more, tear open both perforated ends of the box, put your box on the level of the fridge you want to fill with soda, and push all the soda through the back end while pulling the box back onto your arm like a glove (see video).

Remember, unpacking soda the old way will guarantee you waste time and contract scoliosis:



Instead, do it like this:
