‘Tis the season…

Going Off the Menu

If you’re like me, you like coffee – and you like it a lot. However, you only like your coffee a specific way – for me at Starbucks, it’s a venti, sugar-free caramel soy latte (sometimes iced). Yes, I’m selective, but I keep going back to Starbucks. Why? My order’s not explicitly on the menu and it’s a little pricier, but it’s what I like – and clearly, I’ll pay the price to get a drink that I feel is the perfect cup of coffee (or three) for me. The best part of all? I’ve never had a barista tell me they can’t make that latte for me because it’s not on the menu.

Even Soda's Getting Personal

  
  
  
  

Little by little, Coca-Cola machines are popping up in restaurants around the United States. Near where I live, it’s in a Kelly’s Roast Beef –you pick the soda you want and dispense it yourself. Seems pretty ordinary, right? Not exactly. This carbonated think tank, the Coca-Cola Freestyle, was made in 2009 and is revolutionizing the way we pick our soda flavors. You have options; in fact, you have over 125 different flavored Coke products – Sprite, Canada Dry, Coke Zero, etc. to choose from. Pick a Coca-Cola brand, choose from a myriad of flavors, and taste your new concoction. Oh, and expect your mind to be blown – I haven’t had a bad tasting soda yet.
