Love at First Sip...

I think it was sometime last year (or maybe the year before) that I started seeing things appear on my OC friends' blogs about the new fountain drink dispenser at Pei Wei. I knew I had to experience it for myself. So on this last visit, I went.

So, it all starts with you placing your cup inside the machine and getting some ice. Next, you go to the screen...

You see that there are many options of drinks. All you do is touch the one you want, and it opens up flavor options for that drink. (Like folders on a computer.) For instance, i clicked Diet Coke, and I was presented with the options of Diet Coke with Lemon, Raspberry, Vanilla, Lime, and Orange. I chose Orange and loved it!

I also chose (as my refill later) Sprite Zero with Grape. I did not love it. I couldn't even finish it. Which is strange, considering my universal love for purple flavor.

As I understand it, the machine keeps track of what drinks people are ordering and reports back to Coke HQ in Atlanta. That way, they know what people like, and whether to mass produce it.

Here's hoping bottled Diet Coke with Orange will be in my fridge soon...
