U-Fizz Makes Anything Fizzy and Bubbly

by Paul Strauss

Can’t drink any more Coca-Cola? Pooped out on Pepsi? Sick of soda pop? Thanks to the miracles of home carbonation, you can turn anything you want into a fizzy lifting drink (lifting not guaranteed).

Just get your hands on the $6.95 U-Fizz kit, a box of baking soda, some vinegar and a couple of soda bottles, and you can make everything from carbonated juice drinks to more offbeat concoctions like CO2 loaded Jell-O. Hmmm… That gets me thinking… I wonder what would happen if you dared to put some Diet Coke and Mentos in this contraption? Maybe the world would explode.

Now from what I can tell, the U-Fizz (aka the Soda Shaker) looks like about 50 cents worth of plastic tubing and bottle caps, so the markup seems a little excessive. But who among us has time to run out to the neighborhood scientific supply store to buy all the stuff you need to make your own? I certainly don’t.

So head on over Edmund Scientifics and tell us about the craziest carbonated concoction you come up with. Me? I’d like to see what happens when I make my own Starbucks bubbly half-caff no whip 120-degree grande macchiato mochacinno- extra bubbly, please.

For those of you science geeks out there, here’s a handy presentation on the subject called “How Carbonation Works“. I’m definitely using that PowerPoint deck at my next business meeting.

    I made carbonated coffee in ’94. It’s an experience drinking a hot flat white with bubbles but I’d recommend carbonating the coffee *before* adding milk.

  2. niels2k says:

    Warm drinks don’t carbonate well. The cooler the drink is the easier it is to ‘dissolve’ the carbon acid. Opposite what you normally learn about solubility

    This product is a start. For a really good natural way to carbonate see video for My Pop Soda Shoppe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoGalIrET4w

    one word… SODA STREAM!

  5. Mike H says:

    This is the least expensive alternative for carbonating drinks I have ever seen. Personally, I think it’s worth every penny. Way to go, Bob!
