    Whatever you call it this was tasty. Went into a noodles n company and they had one of these new touch screen soda fountains. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coca-Cola_Freestyle

    Bottom line was it was neat. Mixed flavors into whatever you wanted. I had a vanilla diet coke. It uses a different means of flavoring than conventional boxes of syrup.

    Yeah Burger King around here has them now along with a local pizza chain.

    Novel idea, but poorly executed when kids stand there and play with the darn thing for 10 minutes because they have useless parents.

    We're finding them locally at 5 Guys. If you're going to have a $9 hamburger, might as well have the soda made to taste.

    LaRosa's in Dayton has them, but you are handed a Soda Menu to design your flavor and your waiter brings it out. I would imagine the Cinci area would have them too.

    I ran into one somewhere in Miami but now cant remember. I am sure it was either a BK or McD's.

    The Moe's in Clemson has one, as does the Wendy's in Pickens. Pretty cool. I haven't seen the kids playing with it much but I think the whole idea was born from kids mixing 8 different kinds of soda at the machine (don't tell me you never did that).

    I assume the actual Coke/Diet Coke/etc is fed in from tanks outside the machine and the flavorings are in the actual machine.

    I've found them at Five Guys. I've made some questionable combinations...those choices are dangerous.
