Thanks to copious research by JennAnn (poor thing, what else does she have to do while on bedrest!) We located one of the beta sites for the new Freestyle Coke machines in Atlanta.
We drove 40 miles I'm embarrassed to tell you how far Willy's Mexicana Grill is from my house, but anything for the pursuit of science, no?
The machine is beautiful; all slick and shiny with a touch screen and a dispenser for ice and soda.
The selections are endless. There were some versions of coke products I've never seen before-diet Fanta, etc.
What to choose, what to CHOOSE?
The kids went with Coke the first round. (No surprise there, as this is normally forbidden fruit!) There were 5 flavors you could add if desired-vanilla, lime, orange, black cherry or grape (ugh.)
The kids all played it safe; Coleman and Carolyn picked Vanilla and Christian tried the Cherry.
The screen was a little high for some!
Several rounds later, everyone was happy, happy, HAPPY! And highly caffeinated.
As a nice surprise, the food at Willy's was really good, too!
Will you be ashamed of me if I tell you that I had...Diet Coke? JUST Diet Coke?
