The convenience chain has rolled out its proprietary Fizzics Sparkling Cold Brew Coffee in the self-chilling cans.

The Chill-Can has been developed by The Joseph Company International Inc., the special cans filled with Fizzics coffee are being tested at 15 Los Angeles-area 7-Eleven stores, Convenience.org reported.

The Fizzics Coffee beverages are available in Regular, French Vanilla and Caramel.

The cans are purchased at an ambient temperature and chilled when ready to consume. When the cans have activated the technology within uses CO2 and the can and beverage are automatically chilled.

To chill, the can is placed on a flat surface, turned upside down and the base turned to activate the technology. The process takes between 75 and 90 seconds, Convenience.org reported.

7-Eleven director of private brands Tim Cogil said: “Because the self-chilling can technology is so groundbreaking, we wanted to introduce it with a super innovative beverage”.

“Sparkling coffee sodas met all the criteria,” Mr Cogil said.

“Previously available in some coffee shops, a handful of exclusive canned carbonated brews began showing up last summer.

“Fizzics will be the first that can be chilled on demand, bringing a new level of convenience to customers who want to enjoy a chilled drink whenever and wherever they are.”
