MINUTEMENT UPDATE: Because eight pop choices is not enough

coca cola
Have you ever gone up to a self-serve soda fountain and thought that the six to eight choices typically offered are insufficient?

Well, neither have I.

But one of the great things about America is that deep the the research labs of our big companies there are thousands of scientists finding solutions to problems we didn’t even know we faced.

The Flat Bottom Taco Shell from Old El Paso is a great example. Did I realize my old, curved taco shells were insufficient? No. Is my life now better because of the hard work of the men and women of Old El Paso? Yes.

Yesterday came word that the consumer scientists behind America’s great food companies have done it again.

It seems the good men and women of the Coca-Cola Corporation have solved the problem of not enough pop flavors being offered at soda fountains. Coca-Cola has developed a new “smart” soda fountain that can deliver up to 100 different flavors of pop, water and juice from a single machine.

InformationWeek has the full story with photos.

No longer will the sparse offerings of our soda fountains be reminiscent of Soviet grocery stores. No longer will we have to settle for the limited choices of Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Dr. Pepper, Fanta Orange, Dasani ect.

100 flavors here I come!*

*I just hope all 100 flavors use high-fructose corn syrup.
