So, we’re not generally in the business of promoting marketing gimmicks from giant multinational corporations. But darned if Coca-Cola’s (NYSE: KO) new fountain drink machine at Mr. Goodcents in the Village Shops didn’t proved irresistible.
Here’s the gist: It’s called “Coca Cola Freestyle.” It looks like some weird Star-Trek-replicator-esque deal. It dispenses more than 100 beverage choices. And it’s kind of like a video game:
“It’s been really popular since we installed it,” said Goodcents owner Ron Cheema. “The kids like it especially.”
We tried the strawberry lemonade. It was really good. But I can’t remember exactly how you navigate to it… (Start with Minute Maid, maybe?)
Anyway, take that, QuikTrip!
