Coca Cola Factory Trip

Our trip to the Coca Cola Factory

Over Spring Break vacation, my family and I took a trip to the Coca Cola factory in Atlanta. It  was quite a caffeinating experience!!  From the Pop Culture Gallery to the Happiness Factory Theater, there is plenty of fascinating thing to see and do.

After listening to the Coca Cola documentary and seeing what makes it so diffrent than any other beverage, we went to the Secret 4-D theater. Then it was time walk upstairs to the main event: The Tasting Station. There were over sixty different beverages, and one very overwhelmed palette. My kids were in heaven. They were given a cup and allowed to drink as much soda as they would like!  We were drinking sodas from Mexico to Australia, and noticed that each cola culture has it’s own spin on the original. Most of them were really good and made me wish we could bottle up and take home. There is one exception. We tried a drink called “Beverly” that was made in Italy. It tasted like watered down cough syrup, with a strong bitter aftertaste. I do not see how anyone could willingly buy that and be refreshed.  But if and when you go, it’s a must try. This is why the product works: it’s so awful that it’s the only drink you distinctly remember. What a great way of advertising!

Overall we had a lot of fun and it’s definately an experience the whole family will remember. My 3 year old is already asking, when we get to go back!

Since Easter is right around the corner, here is a great recipe for your ham. A friend of ours made this for us one year and we loved it!

I wasn’t sure at first, but wow this ham was really moist and yummy! For Easter I like to make deviled eggs so here is a quick and easy recipe to go along with the delicious ham!
