Oak Hills, UT August 1958 J. R. Eyerman

I choose to go to Jordan Commons in Sandy, Utah because it is
different.  The within the complex serves to separate you from reality.  The mini-town square does this well.  The concessions are different and varied.  Pizza, salads and gelato are among the choices.  Popcorn is still the king of the concessions stand. 

I did not like the lack of choices in the diet realm.  Diet Coke, Coke Zero and bottled water.  Yesterday, Ellen and I had a new experience.

Enter the new Coca-Cola Freestyle Beverage System.  The self-serve fountain has a touch screen where there is a choice of more than 100 different drink combinations.  This includes waters, juices, teas and sparkling drinks that have never before been available in this country.  Several machines are working at the Jordan Commons as a test of the idea and to gauge customer reaction. 

From what I saw, the Coca-Cola Freestyle Beverage System machines are an instant hit with moviegoers.  Adults and children excitedly choose several flavors at a time.  The flavor most chosen so far?  Orange Coke.  My choice is Fanta Zero Peach.  This could be the start of something big.
