Nothing is worse than a lukewarm drink. Chill-Can from The Joseph Company aims to change that with their new self-chilling cans that will be distributed by 7/11.
The cans are simple to use: turn the can upside down, twist the base off to release liquefied CO2 that acts as the active coolant, and wait only 75 to 90 seconds for a nice and refreshing drink. The drink, which is stored in a 100% recyclable can, is lowered to about thirty degrees.
Part of the reason that these cans are gaining traction is that people don’t like to wait. Self-chilling cans eliminate the need to wait for your drink to get cold, whether it is via refrigerator, freezer, or ice cubes. This means that you no longer will need ice cubes watering down your beverage.
The demand for self-chilling cans are on the rise, and The Joseph Company is opening a new production and distribution plant in Youngstown, Ohio, along with their current plant in Irvine, California.
The self-chilling cans can have a significant impact on the beverage industry and could push competitors to start manufacturing their own self-chilling cans, whether it be for soda, sports drinks, alcohol, or more.
