A LIttle Too Cold.
If you like soft drinks, you presumably like them cold. But you don't want them too cold. At noon today I bought a couple of donuts from Safeway at the Mall at Lawson Heights. I then went outside to buy a Coke Zero from a vending machine they have sitting outside, since it's 40 cents cheaper than buying a bottle in the Safeway. But when I went back into the mall to eat and drink I found a bit of a surprise. The Coke Zero was half frozen. The frozen bit had a texture close to that of a Slurpy. In retrospect I should have considered that there might be some ice in it, given that it's -10 C during the day. I suspect the soft drinks inside might end up totally frozen when it gets even colder.
