Stay Frosty with New Self-Chilling Cans of Coffee

Are you ready for the apocalypse? I sure am. I have essentials like food, water, and shelter prepared, but let’s talk about real survival: life without caffeine is no life at all. Now you can prep for the end times with the knowledge you’ll still be able to have cold iced coffee whenever you want, refrigeration be damned.

7-Eleven, purveyor of rotating hot dogs and mind-freezing Slurpees, is rolling out a ground-breaking product: Fizzics Sparkling Cold Brew Coffee. You may say, big deal, it’s coffee in a can—but hold on, because this is the very first self-chilling can available to the public in the U.S. and it’s currently being tested at 15 LA area stores.

Self. Chilling. Coffee.

The Chill-Can containers are room temp to the touch; the magic happens when they’re activated. The patented technology utilizes reclaimed CO2 and the process automatically chills the can and the delicious sparkling coffee beverage inside. In other words, it’s pure sorcery.

So how do we mortals go about performing this feat of caffeinated wizardry? Simply place the can on a flat surface upside down, then twist the base to activate. Don’t be frightened by the hissing sound; that’s part of it. Then have patience and leave it alone until the hissing stops, because the warmth of your human hands might inhibit the cooling process. When the magical hissing is over, then you can turn the can over (don’t worry it’s only about 90 seconds of your life) and pop a cold one. Literally. Literally cold. Do you understand what you just witnessed? Spellbinding java magnificence.

The coffee drinks come in three flavors: Regular, French Vanilla and Caramel, and are available exclusively at select participating 7-Eleven stores.

What do you think of these self-chilling containers of coffee? Are you willing to take it by the can and walk into the future? Let us know in the comments and and tag @nerdist and @justjenn on Twitter to show us if you try it out!
