    In case you were not able to buy the single serving packets of gelatin from the "Knox" brand, note that we used 56 grams of gelatin (equivalent to 8 single packets)
    .
    As long as you mix 56 grams of gelatin with 100 mL of water you will be fine.

    Use the box cutter knife to cut a slit down the middle of your empty coke bottle
    .
    Start near the top of the flat portion of the bottle, then stop once you reach the bottom portion of the plastic that curves out.

  10. 10
    Use some duct tape to seal the cut we made
    .
    Make sure that the duct tape seal is done very well because if it's not properly sealed, you will experience some messy leaks in the fridge.

    Screw the cap back on your bottle, give the bottle a slight shake then place it in the fridge for 1 hour

  13. 13
    After the bottle has been in the fridge for an hour, peel off the tape and rip all of the plastic bottle so we can retrieve the coke gummy inside
    .
    I recommend using the box cutters and your hands to peel off the bottle gently.

    At this point, if you want to make your coke gummy look realistic, you can place the wrapper and cap back on for the fun of it
