    Red face Have you tried Coke Freestyle? What did you order? What are your impressions?

    I tried it at McDonald's recently in Manhattan and, like the other customers, was excited to use it.

    I tried Raspberry Coke Zero (for those who were wondering).

    It's very easy to use, and boasts over 100 flavors.

    My only criticism is that my concoction was a little sweet. And my buddy who was with me also thought his Fanta Zero was also a little too sweet. A bit too much concentrated syrup, perhaps? It was still tasty though.

    Perhaps too much sweetener. The bag-in-box part of the machine is the sweeteners - either the hfcs bib, or the zero calorie one (not sure of the formulation, but I'm guessing aspartame/ace-k).

    I've had a few of the fantas, grape vault, raspberry coke, orange coke, and some other stuff I don't remember. I didn't care for the lime fanta.

    I tried one over the summer. At a Firehouse Subs during lunch hour. My fear of people taking their time choosing their drink was unfounded, everyone knew what they wanted, filled the cup and moved on. I was somewhat underwhelmed, don't know what I expected, plus at that time I realized I was tired of carbonated drinks (was on vacation) so I chose Grape Hi-C which turned out to be an excellent choice.

    I got to try one a few weeks ago at a Firehouse Subs in VA. There was a backup at the machine which was a slight problem. The only other complaint I had was the machine didn't have Pibb, it had Dr. Pepper. Otherwise, fun to use, my Cherry Vanilla coke was good.
