Good Friday, people! We are giving away the new Keurig Kold drink maker. This newly designed cold drink dispenser is unlike any on the market today, using a specially design pod that not only adds syrup from dozens of varieties of soft drinks, but also the required carbonation.
If that sounds a bit like SodaStream, that’s because it is, although there are a few key differences. The most important of which, for those who’ve grown weary of carbon dioxide refills, is that Kold uses “Karbonator beads” embedded in its pods to generate CO2. That means no canisters, and no confusion over just how many bubbles to add. That also means the Kold should be equally adept at non-carbonated beverages, including teas, sports drinks, and flavored water; in addition to its partners, Keurig will be offering its own brands in those categories. Regardless of fizz, as you’d expect from the name, the drinks also come out, well, cold, thanks to what Keurig describes as an “aerospace-inspired thermal transfer system.”
Keurig CEO Brian Kelley said in a statement that Kold “will change the way consumers enjoy cold beverages at home.”
In addition to Coca-Cola products, the company is offering pods of Keurig original flavors, and will soon be offering cocktail mixers.
We have sampled a variety of soft drinks from a provided machine and are pleased with the results. The drinks come out at 40 degrees on average and taste appropriate. That is the upside. The downside might be for some the attached price tag of the pods which initially will sell for $5 for a 4-pack. Each pod will make 8 ounces of product. You can be assured that these prices will drop as production continues, and there are some Keurig brand drinks that are simply delicious if you are not a Coca Cola fan, which is a brand partner and now a 10% stake holder in Keurig. Dr Pepper has also join forces along with Snapple and other drink makers.
You can try the Keurig in your own home if you are our lucky winner. Simply make a comment below and we will draw a random name Wednesday, October 28th. The prize includes the machine, several galsses that fit in the machine, and extra pods of assorted flavors. The value of the Keurig Kold is $365. Good luck and good sipping!
