What's happening here? The soda has been cooled below its freezing temperature and there are no "imperfections" to kick off the formation of ice crystals. Opening the bottle unleashes a chain reaction, which leads to an "instant slurpee." SCIENCE.

You can pull it directly from the snow and eat it where you stand or you can take wooden kabob skewers and roll the syrup taffy around one end to make maple syrup taffy lollipops! Omnomnommm.
