Coca-Cola celebrates the company’s 125th anniversary this month, and to mark the occasion the soft drink giant is releasing a torrent of new soda flavors available on its Freestyle vending machine—including 19 brands never before available anywhere.
Each of the more than 400 outlets that feature Coca-Cola Freestyle dispensers will offer 125 brand options in celebration of the milestone.
New Coca-Cola Freestyle brands include: Coke with Raspberry, Coke with Orange, Coke with Lime, Coke with Lemon, Cherry Vanilla Coke, Diet Cherry Vanilla Coke, Caffeine-Free Diet Cherry Vanilla Coke, Cherry Vanilla Coke Zero, Sprite with Orange, Sprite with Vanilla, Sprite Zero with Orange, Sprite Zero with Vanilla, Barq’s Vanilla, Diet Barq’s Vanilla, Seagram’s Lemon Lime Seltzer, Minute Maid Fruit Punch Lemonade, Minute Maid Light Fruit Punch Lemonade, Hi-C Raspberry Lime, and Hi-C Orange Vanilla.
“Thinking of new ways to please guests and help operators deliver a better beverage experience is at the very essence of who we are as The Coca Cola Company,” says Gene Farrell, vice president, Coca-Cola Freestyle, Coca-Cola Refreshments USA. “Coca-Cola Freestyle’s 125 brands honor a 125-year legacy of creative development and give you a glimpse of where we’re headed in the future.”
I don’t know…standing in front of a soda machine with 125 different options sounds like a recipe for what we at CultureWaves® call “choice choke.” With so many to select from, I would expect an overflow of indecision. Then again, most people will probably just choose a plain ol’ Coke.
