    ​So I had some strawberries in a cooler with dry ice all day, and now they seem to have a fizzy charachter. Am I just imagining stuff, or could they actually be carbonated now?


    I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.
    Lucky me. Lucky mud.

    I am aware that they can become fizzy if they ferment. I've never come across the situation you describe, but I suppose if strawberries spend a lot of time in what would be an almost pure CO2 atmosphere, the water in their tissues will be become saturated with CO2 at that temperature. Since the solubility of gases in liquids decreases with temperature, it might be that some CO2 would come out of solution when the cold strawberries warm up on your tongue, leading to a fizzy sensation.

    Sweet! Glad I'm not crazy. There were some grapes, they were fizzy too.
