It’s no secret that I’m addicted to Diet Coke. The taste, the carbonation, the slight burn at the end of a satisfying gulp: I love it all. And no, Pepsi just doesn’t cut it.
So I guess it’s also no surprise that I’ve managed to make a trip down to Atlanta specifically to visit Coca-Cola’s World of Coke almost every year since my first visit in 2009.
Having had so many good times (and tastes) in years past, I made the day trip this year with my sister, Tiffany, and college roommate, Sadie. I’m pretty sure Tiffany’s favorite part was the 4D Movie, while Sadie loved getting familiar with the history of advertising and branding. In my opinion though, the tasting room can’t be beat. For my third time, I tried ALL 65 flavors available for testing, plus a handful of make your own coke flavors. Sadie and Tiffany might have suffered a slight Coca-Cola bellyache afterwards, but not me.
And now that I’m several weeks and way too many miles removed from that delicious experience, where can I get a Coke?
