151. HumBugg: Fizz-loss January 30, 2007

Posted by Matt Fleming, PsyD in Food and Drink, IdeaSpark*, Product.

Two-liter bottles are cost efficient (typically at $.99 a bottle), yet the soda tends to loose carbonation as it is drunk. Here are some possible solutions to this annoying problem:

(1) Fizz-keeper Pump Cap.
(2) The Pump and Pour.

However, those two products, though they work, can require many pumps at a time, so here are some other IdeaSparks* (none are perfect):

(1) A cap with a tube and one-way valve to blow in. Due to sanitary issues, this product would be best for individuals and close families. Not good for parties.

(2) Effervescent tablets. For every quarter of empty space, add one tablet, which bubbles and pressurizes the empty space.

(3) Bottles with four quadrants. Access each of quadrants/sections one at a time.

(4) Collapsible bottles. Accordion-style, like in the picture. Make it twist, and with catch mechanisms, to prevent the gas pressure from making the bottle re-expand.

I simple squeeze the bottle and tightly seal it. This works down to half the contents — then it falls over.

Hmm…I will have to give that a shot. Thanks for the idea!

I thought this was a pretty good idea, and was surprised that someone hadn’t already done something along these lines. Then sadly, I came across a nice variation on the idea at Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Fizz-Keeper-Liter-Bottles-Jokari/dp/B000LPVRIS
