Soda one Soda all

Whenever I am on the road I only stop at gas stations, not because I don't like smelly rest stops (it's true though). It's because I like buying different drinks. No, really. If there is a gas station that I stop at and I don't go in to see if they have any crazy new drink I feel like I might have missed an opportunity to find my true love in the beverage world. (Surge was my soul mate until Coke killed it and replaced it with the impostor Vault... It's ok Vault I still like you, just not in THAT way.)

Anyways Coke has made a machine that is made of hopes and dreams:



Coke has placed a couple of these in the wild down in Atlanta, let's see what the natives think:



If there was one of these machines anywhere in Oklahoma I would make a pilgrimage to see it.

Peach Vault, you may still yet win my heart.

I don't really drink soda all that often. So I would probably see all those options and just pick seltzer water. yeah.

Did you see? They even have flavored water! It's a smorgasbord of drink choices.

Very fun soda machine. I'd have to try all the flavors not offered in stores just to try them.

I'm amazed whenever visiting North America at the popularity of Root Beer.

WTF???

It tastes like dental mouthwash.

Except worse.

You are probably way TOO young to remember this drink - Welch's Apple something or 'nother. (it was a fizzy apple soda) I use to get it from a Coke machine outside of a small town grocery - Cecil's. It was the stuff back in the day.

@ white rabbit - Good root beer tastes good, bad root beer is horrible. Try fresh A&W if you have it in your area, if you don't like that then OK, I'll let it slide. :)

@ Kimberly - Nope haven't heard of it before. Also, all the words that you are saying just sound like "Get off my lawn!" to me. :)
