Ain't No Slushy

This morning, we opened the fridge to find a Diet Coke that blew up. The fridge is on the fritz, it is freezing things even though we turned up the temperature. So last night, this can of coke froze, and cleanly took off the top of the can. I've never seen this happen before.

Frozen Coke & Broken Lid

The top of the can cleanly just peeled off, kind of like when you use a can opener but even cleaner.

Too bad the fridge is now covered in Diet Coke. At least it is all frozen.

It is a good thing some of our clients sell fridges - I guess.

haha nice, I think Diet Coke is more likely to do it, I often put fresh cans of coke in the freeze to cool them quick but every now and then I forget but they've not blown up like that before, normally the top and bottom just push out - but thats normal coke.

Cool :) I've had the tops and bottoms push out, or even a gash in the side, but never anything like that! Maybe it is because it's Diet... We need to get Mythbusters involved!

This happened to me once in a soda I had in a vending machine. If I remember right (this was more than 10 years ago) the operator said that the sugar lowers the freezing point in regular coke, so the diet stuff blows first.
