How To: Instantly Ice Soda into a Frozen Slushy

Instantly Ice Soda into a Frozen Slushy

In this Quick Clip, I'll be showing you how a supercooled soda is transformed into a slushy "slurpee" in under 4 seconds. I was inspired to do this little soda trick by The Super Effect's video on YouTube from a few years ago.

To get this effect, I put 4 bottles of 500mL (16.9 oz) soda in a freezer set at -24ºC (-11ºF) between 3¼ to 4 hours. The longer they're in, the more dramatic and solid the slushy freeze will be. However, anytime longer than 3 hours and 15 minutes, there's a chance of them freezing before you take them out.

WARNING: Leaving soda in the freezer for too long can result in failure of the container—and a big mess. Use of video content is at own risk.
