Making Coke Ice Cubes

This post may contain affiliate links.

Last week’s Tips for Tuesday was about turning flat soda or day old coffee into icecubes for your soda or to make iced coffee with.  I was really eager to get that almost empty and very flat bottle of Coke out of my fridge this week so I went ahead and tried the Coke ice cube experiment.

After about 4 hours the ice cubes were formed but slightly mushy- like an icee that’s left in the freezer too long. (they never froze any further.  I was able to easily pop them out using my fingernails (yes I washed my hands first) and put them into a plastic container to store in the freezer.  I found the “cokecubes” not only fun to snack on, but the perfect solution to the watered down coke problem.

After the “cokecubes” melted into my half empty glass the coke taste still prevailed and was only slightly flat tasting.  I was surprised, given the fact that I had filled my glass with the “cokecubes” instead of my usual 3 or 4 pieces of ice.  I will definitely be doing this with all my leftover sodas or nearing their end date sodas.  Very easy and a great way to not waste something I’ve paid good money for!

It was such a nice treat that I did it again the next night and took pictures for you :-)

    Sounds good to me. I want to try it. Can I come over for a coke?

  2. LOL, assuming that I have actually met you in person before then yes! However it might be 2 or 3 weeks before I have another one. I tend to be a water only girl.
