Everybody have a nice holiday weekend? Want to stand around the water cooler and compare firework scars in a little? Cool. Coca-Coca recently sold their soda in special limited edition bottles made out of ice on the beaches of Colombia. I would have liked to try one of those bottles. And not just because that would mean I'm on a beach in Columbia, but I would be and I'd be wearing a banana hammock. One hand on a hip, ice cold Coke in the other -- just like the cover of a romance novel but with one ball hanging out.
To make the special edition Coca-Cola bottles a reality, teams created a new packaging design and production process to manufacture the ice bottles and transport them to hot Colombia beaches. The process starts with pouring micro-filtered water into silicone molds, then freezing the water to-25 °C and filling the molds with Coke.
Promising "Fria hasta la ultima gota" or "Cold to the last drop," the frozen bottles continue to make quite a splash in South America and throughout the advertising world. Beachside, drink servers have sold 265 frozen bottles an hour, on average.
You know what would be awesome? If you had a bottle made out of ice but other people couldn't tell it was then you bit the end off and chewed it while staring at them. It's the simple joys in life, you know? Like convincing everyone around that you're a psychopath. Bonus points if you follow it up with a handful of sand while yelling 'COOKIE DOUGH.'
