A McDonald's in Lower Manhattan has set up new high tech drink dispensers that can provide an amazing amount of different drinks from a single small machine. Among the many drinks available are some Coke flavors I've never had before: orange and raspberry.
Orange Coke tasted like a bitter version of Fanta orange while raspberry Coke was not as bitter, but tasted more like a melon soda than raspberry. Although both drinks had that same brown color like regular Coke, you could see bits of orange or magenta liquid as it was coming out of the machine and mixing with the Coke. That was pretty cool seeing the fusion in process.
Both orange and raspberry Cokes are a nice break from the regular Coke we're all familiar with, but they're really not my cup of tea. They didn't taste as good as I expected. Maybe I need to drink more to get used to them. In the meantime though, I welcome potential new flavors of Coke to try out!
