    New Coke Machine

    I really want one of these... and I barely drink pop.

    Re: New Coke Machine

    how do you stock that thing? I wonder how much it holds...Easy to clean? Imagine that as a beer machine.

    Re: New Coke Machine

    Is that for home use? Why not just get a wet bar and choose exactly what you want.

    Re: New Coke Machine

    Sometimes too many choices is a bad thing. I could just see getting stuck behind the person who wants to click through everything just to see what is available.

    That said, it is pretty sweet, but I also wonder how hard it is to maintain and keep stocked. I am guessing that there is a basic drink (such as regular coke), and then they have several flavors (like peach or cherry) that they can mix with any drink.

    That'd be my guess as well, still, nice concept.

    So its like a Kum and Go machine with all those flavors to put in except internally? I would think it would need to be cleaned alot using the same valve though.

    I look at this the same way I see a redbox. They are great until you have 4 people in front of you.

    Or some kid that has to mix every flavor available to make the ultimate drink.

    Re: New Coke Machine

    My guess is it's just an automated "old school" soda fountain concept - water, CO2 tank, and a bunch of syrups - basic Coke, basic Diet Coke, basic Coke Zero, basic Sprite, basic Sprite Zero, basic Mr. Pibb, basic Barq's, and then plain flavored syrups such as cherry, vanilla, orange, etc. which are commonly used among the Coke family of products. For instance, if you wanted a Cherry Coke, it dispenses water, CO2, Coke syrup, and cherry syrup. Or if you want a Cherry Fanta, water, CO2, and Cherry syrup.

    This. But I could still see that concept doing well. Especially in tourist type places. Amusement parks, fairgrounds, that kinda thing.

    Re: New Coke Machine

    Here is a story about the machine when Coke started to test these in California.

    Picture 1374 Coca-Cola unveils the soda fountain of the future

    They are going to start rolling it out nationwide next month.

    Will there be a deposit on the machine?

    Re: New Coke Machine

    I thought it was going to be a machine that dispensed only New Coke. And I thought, "Here we go again."

    Seriously, though it's a cool concept.

    It would work even better for mixed drinks.
