  1. 1
    Start by carefully pealing off the wrapper around the bottle using your fingers and the box cutting knife
    Make sure that you save the wrapper for later.

    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.

    Once your gelatin is mixed well, place it in the microwave for 1 minute
    After you've microwaved the gelatin, it should have a more liquid like consistency.

    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.

    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

    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.
