World of Coca-Cola

This post was rescued from a sad life in my drafts folder… hence the summertime attire.

I relish the opportunity to do something one on one with one of the littles.  And since I spend most days with Whit while John’s at school, I jumped at the chance to spend an afternoon with just John at the World of Coca-Cola!!

He is a bit young yet to appreciate the memorabilia and history of the world’s most loved brand and, since I’ve seen it all a few times, we watched the Happiness Factory movie, met the polar bear, and then skipped right to the good stuff…tasting Coca-Cola products from around the world.  The kid was in heaven with the Freestyle machines too!

He adored the apple drink from China.

And we both gagged on Beverly from Italy.

We made a little pop art, checked out the vault and participated in the interactive experience when our tummies and taste buds needed a break.

And then we headed to the 4D theater!!

After another round of tastings, he proudly picked up his first very own glass Coke bottle, bottled right there in the world’s slowest bottling plant, and we hit the store.

A pretty penny later and he was decked out in Coke gear.  He spent his allowance on the ball and bag and I threw in the tee.  It’s hard to say no to a kid that loves Coke as much as his mama.

Now the baby is begging to go, so I suppose that visit will be coming soon!

  1. I was in a wedding over Labor Day in Atlanta and the groom was from Chicago. I laughed SO HARD when his sister walked in and asked why she was having the hardest time finding PEPSI. HA! Where do you think you are, lady? Welcome to the home of Coke. We get mad when a restaurant serves Pepsi!

    This was a fun outing for you two! I need to do more of that with my oldest.

  2. What a fun day out! My husband would love to go on a tour there since he is seriously obsessed with Diet Coke! We actually have cases of it in our garage. I don't drink much soda but when I do, I only drink regular Coke. I don't like the diet taste!

  3. Looks like y'all had a blast. I just wanted to POP by and say Thank you also for my beautiful cards they came in the mail . I will have your thank you card off VERY soon. Thanks so much and I will be taking pics of us using them at thanksgiving all Thanks to YOU !! GOD bless and I write this with a thankful heart. Thank you

  4. My children's favorite thing to do is to tell people, "When you go to the World of Coke, you HAVE to drink the Beverly and be sure you take a really big gulp—it is sooo good!" Of course, they know it is terrible, but they love to play that trick on folks!
