Walk in to any number of fast food restaurants and your likely to see a fountain soda dispenser. Order a drink and you get to chose between about eight drinks. To put that a different way, if you go into that restaurant every day it would be just over a week before you would have to repeat one of your choices.
Coco Cola is testing a 100 flavor fountain. When a restaurant has one of the new machine you would have to eat there daily for more than three months before you were forced to repeat a flavor. It may actually be longer than that with swapping or adding flavors as easy as swapping out print cartridges.
"Atlanta-based Coca-Cola Co., the world’s largest beverage firm, is working on a proprietary fountain system that can dispense more than 100 beverages from a single unit.
The new dispenser, which fits in about the same space as a current eight-valve machine, uses high-concentrate ingredients to store more beverages. Adding a new brand is “about as easy as changing a print cartridge,” the company said in a press release."
