(Newser) – Better drink up fast: Coke is experimenting with a bottle made entirely of ice, reports the Atlanta Morning Call. It's available only in Colombia for now, and there's no word on whether the company will roll it out elsewhere. (Coke swears it's a hit with beach-goers, though.) The water gets frozen into bottle shapes at 13-below zero, and the bottles have a rubber band that drinkers use to hold them. They melt into nothing when the drink is gone, but ABC News reports that critics aren't wowed by the seemingly green product—because of all the extra refrigeration required.
