Ice Cold Soda!

Have you ever noticed that the very first sip of an ice-cold soda is the absolute best?

For years I have been popping my fridge cold pop into the freezer for 5-15 minutes before I drink it, to make sure it is just slightly icy. Unfortunately there are times when I forget the soda is in the freezer and the whole thing freezes and that's no fun at all.

I guess that's why I like slushes/slushies/slurpees so much...soda that is practically frozen. One thing I'm looking forward to in our trip up north this weekend - a better variety of slurpees! When I lived there - we could get slurpees that were Dr. Pepper, Cream Soda, Root Beer, Grape, Orange - along with the usual stuff like Coke. I know Sonic sells various flavors - but those are not TRUE slurpees, so I don't even count those.

If I want to chill my soda fast, i put it in a bowl of ice water and swirl it around for 2-3 minutes... there is a you tube video about it somewhere...

I *love* those Cream Soda slurpees. Have fun on the trip!

I stopped freezing sodas when I opened up my freezer once to find that it had exploded and there was soda ice all over the inside of the freezer...

That is an excellent idea. I should only do it when my husband is home though because I would undoubtedly forget the can in the freezer. But, I'm trying this tonight.
