No need to dig deep! This experiment is as easy as [banana] pie. Save paper and leave messages for the kiddies on their bananas.


After freezing a bottle of soda for three and a half hours, twist the cap to release some pressure, then flip upside down immediately into a frozen glass (that's, yes, made specifically out of glass).

The soda remains a liquid because of a process called supercooling, or when a liquid being cooled below its freezing point without turning into a solid. Opening the bottle creates carbon dioxide bubbles, allowing the soda to freeze.
