Fizzy Fruit | Kitchen Science Testing #2

Fizzy Fruit | Kitchen Science Testing #2


– Have you ever wanted to
taste a fizzy strawberry, a carbonated grape or even
a tongue-tangling yoghourt? Well hopefully today I’m
gonna show you how, hopefully. Hey everyone, hope you’re well. Welcome to My Virgin Kitchen, its Barry. This is the second video in the kitchen science testing playlist. If you missed the snake thing that I made, check that out after this video. Some comments on that, not
only was it about health and safety, don’t worry, I’ve upgraded. There’s no naked flame today and I’ve got some decent gloves. Also you guys suggested
something called fizzy fruit and we are trying that
today for two reasons, one because it looks awesome. There’s a video that
you guys pointed me to from people called ChefSteps. Amazing channel, check it out. Go have a little ganders
and more importantly, was this Halloween I ordered some dry ice. I wanted to do a cauldron thing. It didn’t arrive in time. It’s arrived now so we’re
gonna do some fizzy stuff. Fizzy fun. (exhaling deeply) Looks cool, don’t it? See? Intentionally bad ice pun. Alright, I’m going to show you something. When dry ice melts, it
does something different to normal ice and I’m not
the smartest tool in the box. I didn’t do very well
at science at school. Which somehow makes me the
perfect host for this, right? When normal ice melts it
turns to water, as you know. When dry ice melts,
hence the cauldron thing I wanted to do, it turns
to CO2, carbon dioxide. So it’s like what’s in
fizzy drinks, basically. So this spoon is actually,
that’s cold, right? It’s quite cold in here
but this is warm compared to dry ice, which is
actually minus 70 degrees. Hence my gloves. I don’t know if you can see
the smoke coming off of that. They’re actually dancing
a little bit on the spoon. It’s like the Riverdance, spoon edition. So by putting this into some water, you get a pretty cool effect
and that was basically what I was trying to do with the cauldron. (dry ice bubbling) I’ve kind of made a
poor-man’s cauldron, right? So what’s happening is
rather than it melting, this is, wooo, I feel like a witch! Aah! (laughing) It’s carbon dioxide. One thing I don’t know, if I. (inhaling deeply) Nah, I was gonna see I’d burp a lot, but, it looks pretty cool. Oh my gosh, (laughing) is that cool, Rob? – [Rob] That’s cool. – Rob’s watching, going, I’m
glad he’s got the gloves on. Look at that! (dry ice bubbling) – [Rob] It’s instantly froze on the spoon. – Yeah. That is proper Doc Brown with
the DeLorean, right there. Holy shmoly. Alright, the gas has got to stay in there, ’cause that’s what’s
gonna give it the fizz. I’m not gonna tell you about everything I’ve got on the board but
basically, to make this work, you need a high water content food. So on this board here, as you’ll see, there’s some that aren’t
gonna catch you by surprise but also a few quirky
ones like applesauce. I think that’s gonna be amazing. We’ve got some ice lollies. Not gonna be rocket science if it works and also yoghourt, which surprises me. It has a high water content,
so it’s got a high milk content so obviously there’s water in milk. Let’s do it. Here’s a cool box that I’ve got off Amazon for a very, very cheap amount of money. Now I don’t think this
lid is gonna do much but it doesn’t matter. We’ll come on to that in just a jiffy. Let’s get it off. Obviously this is designed
for like a cool box, keeping your food cool. The dry ice is gonna be a lot cooler than what normally goes in here. I don’t know how much to add. I’m just gonna make my own cauldron. Basically cover the bottom. Scary thing is, now I can’t
actually see the bottom. (giggling) Aaah! Little bit more for good luck. So we don’t want the fruit, wow that mist is cold, baby! We don’t want the fruit
touching the ice directly, otherwise it’ll probably cling to it and do nasty things. So we’ve put down a tea towel. I’m gonna take my gloves off, ’cause I’m feeling kind of protected now and the fruit is gonna go in. Gonna nestle the sauce in
there and the yoghourt. I’m gonna try find somewhere where it can, do you know? Kind of like on the sand and you put your deck chair in there? This is kind of weird. Pineapple slices. It’s cold in there. Celery. I think I’m just gonna get creative and just chuck the rest
in and the ice lollies. (laughing) This is so weird. Right, let’s get that sealed up. Lid goes on, apparently, and even with the expensive,
Amazon-inspired locking device, it’s definitely not sealed enough. ‘Cause those gases can seep out, okay? So we want to really seal them in. You guys know how terrible
I am with cling film. I’m gonna wrap this,
not just around there, lots of times, all over. So I’ll make sure I’ll do it carefully, so I don’t spill me yoghourt. It proper is falling out. If you’ve ever wondered
what it’s like to receive a birthday or Christmas present from me, this is pretty much it. (laughter) Nearly wrapping Rob’s fingers to it. (laughing) – This is gonna look
awkward on camera, isn’t it? – Yeah, yeah, yeah. (laughter) – Oh, that hole in the
bottom of it’s cold! – Is it really? – Yeah! Now you’ve got it. – This is like a really bad
version of the scene from Ghost. (laughter) Gotta really, yeah,
that’s pretty good, man. Don’t think much gonna escape from that. (Barry huffing) Here we have it and as
I showed you earlier with the water and the
dry ice going in there, the gas, that’s basically
happening right in here and the only way it can really go, apparently, is into our fruit. So we’re just gonna leave this overnight and see what happens and I’m gonna take this wig off for the tasty bit. See you tomorrow! Ouch! (rooster crowing) Oh, morning guys. I’m excited. I’m not gonna lie, I ain’t
bothering about the wig. It’s not about that today. I am so excited to open this. I’m not wearing my gloves because I’m actually
booked-marked a recipe that’s coming up next
week, a new playlist. Hopefully you’ll be excited for that. As we left last night,
the gas or some air, maybe, just a big air bubble
was bulging out of this and Rob and I kind of had this feeling. We were like, is this gonna explode? Is that actually the CO2 escaping? We’re not like, burping. So hopefully it’s still in there. I’m generally really excited. So let’s open this up. If you guys have enjoyed the video, don’t forget to subscribe
for regular recipes and food fun and of course
if you like the science experiment stuff, let me know down below any cool ones that you know. We could have actually done
our own homemade dry ice. I kind of avoided that. I didn’t know if you guys wanted to see it but, being in England,
it’s really hard to get it. So maybe I could show you how to get it, and this is quite expensive. So, any ideas, let me know. It’s not cold. It’s like, it’s warm. I don’t, you gotta see this Rob. I don’t know, I can’t work
it out if it’s worked or not. Well the ice is gone. I think it’s worked, you know? – The. – The yoghourts like– – They look weird. They look different.
– They look weird. – They look different. (coughing) – Oh my gosh, there’s still
a bit of gas in there, but all of the ice has gone
and it is, it’s touchable. So, Rob, come have a little look. We’ll peruse before we get it out. – [Rob] That looks frozen. – [Barry] Yeah, that is really cold. – [Rob] Odd. – [Barry] The yoghourt is like, curdled. I don’t know if the yoghourt
has taken all of the, because that’s like, that’s rock-hard. – [Rob] Is that rock-hard? – Yeah.
– It looks rock hard. – [Barry] It doesn’t look
frozen though, does it, as much. So I guess, oh look, what’s
happened to the lolly? It’s kind of– – Disintegrated.
– Disintegrated. – [Rob] It died. – And this other one’s shrunk. I dunno. I hope this has worked. (upbeat music) Oh my god. That’s like eating a SodaStream. (laughter) – Ahhh! Oh, that’s got it. That’s really got it. – These are going to taste grape. – Mmmm. – Yeah, it’s sort of.
– Really fizzy, it tastes a bit like gardens. – It’s made them sweeter, but it’s like yeah, sweet gardens. Yeah, sweet gardens. – This is literally all I
have left of the ice lolly. Oh wow. That’s blimmin’ amazing. (sproinging sms tone) Woo! (laughter) – Whoa! That’s in there, that’s in there. – Oh my god.
– Whoa. (discontented groaning) – So strong. – That tastes like fizzy mud. – It’s the weirdest dessert ever. – An extremely limp piece of celery that somebody’s already had a bite of. – I already like celery, anyway. – Yeah, you put a bit
of ice lolly with it. (laughter) It’s like summer. – I hate cucumber. – Oh, that’s cold. That’s actually solid. Oh. – That’s disgusting. I can’t eat it. – Some fizzy applesauce. Oh, hoh hoh, that’s actually really good. It’s really good. It sort of like, and again,
it’s like it makes it into some sort of pudding or something. – Ooh, that’s nice. That’s turned into like apple sherbet. – I’m gonna have a big spoonful. – Mmm. That’d be really nice with ice cream. – Yeah. – It’s just cold stuff. – It’s very cold. – Wow, think I might go to the dentist to get my teeth checked,
’cause that is, hey, whoa. – Strawberry. Ah, that’s nice. That is, I think that’s the fizziest one, for me so far. Again, it doesn’t taste
like strawberry anymore. It’s like totally something else, but yeah, that’s really interesting. – You can feel it’s gonna be fizzy. It feels funny, don’t it? – They’re, um. – Feels all– – Squidgy. So cold. – It’s like eating a cactus. – Wow that strawberry is like
eating a stinging nettle. It doesn’t even taste nice, so it’s taken all of the strawberryness out of it and just shoved it full of carbon dioxide. – Would you like a blueberry? – Thank you. They look completely normal. Wow. – Cool, yeah. – So fizzy. I like that.
– You get a hit afterwards. – It’s weird, it’s weird but it works. Looks like it’s got frostbite. Smells like cheese but
let’s try the yoghourt. Oh good gosh. Urgh! It’s like eating fizzy baby food. – Anything left? Would you like to try the yoghourt or not? – Well I dunno if you wanna try a bit of this sweet ice lolly. (laughter) Mmm, I love ice lollies. – Thanks for watching then, guys. I hope you enjoyed the video. Don’t forget to check out
that sugar snake video, if you haven’t seen it already. If you do try this, in all seriousness, please, please be careful. It is very dangerous
stuff but it’s very fun. So, I’ll see you next time
