So my Coca Cola Freestyle App buzzed me again!  This time it was with a Star Wars mix called “Desert Scavenger”. While I have to admit I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a Star Wars movie, I thought maybe I’d give it try as my 2nd Freestyle attempt. Then I saw it was Coke Zero with both orange and vanilla mixed in…that reminded me too much of the Boo Brew I tried back in October which I really didn’t like.  I did want to try the Freestyle machine again, as I felt it defeated me last time, so back to Walgreens I went!

I started the soda mixing process and when I saw this screen on the machine, I opened up the Coca Cola Freestyle App on my phone and selected “Connect”. Then I used my phone to scan the QR code on the bottom right hand corner of the machine’s screen.

And what do you know?!…the mixes I had saved on my phone magically appeared on the soda machine!  I selected a mix called “Hoppin’ On One Foot” which is 50%  Vanilla flavored Root Beer and 50% cherry flavored Diet Coke.  I put some ice in the cup and pressed the push button…no worrying about percentages this time and…

Viola!  The mix came out no problem!….

…except for the fact that I hated it. First and second sip both left me with a powdery Necco Wafer taste in my mouth…remember these:

 

 

 

I was so bummed to not like it, which is why I gave it a second sip – but I honestly could feel a filmy coating on my tongue and it was so gross!  Not to say I didn’t like Necco wafers growing up – I did, especially the chocolate ones, but this soda was just not for me.  After my sips I looked back up at the screen and saw this:

Do I dare give them a try?  We shall see!
