Coke wins Cedar Fair

I posted this over on PointBuzz already, but I heard from a Pepsi distributor that their Cedar Fair contract was not renewed. I'm pretty confident that Coke has in fact won the contract for a great many years.

And there was much rejoicing.

Good news indeed.

Boo. Hiss.

BUT...and that's a big "but" (just like mine)...set up at least one of those Freestyle Coke shops at each CF park, and I'll be on board. Big time.

Fruit Punch and Cherry Fanta Zero. Minute Maid Light Orange Lemonade. So many choices. So little time. Mmmmm...

Glory be! Now I'm totally happy with my decision to purchase a 2013 season pass.

I hope you're happy. On the rare occasion I see/hear that phrase, I think of the 70's pop tune "The Night Chicago Died." Now it's stuck in my head. Thank you, sir.

That sucks.

Fever I really enjoy the Simpsons. It's just a shame that I am starting to LOOK like Homer.

I HATE coke! Give me Pepsi!...though on a side note. I'm amazed at how many places have made the switch to Coke around these parts of the World. Either Pepsi better be signing a lot of other contracts, or they are taking a big hit lately.

I prefer Coke to Pepsi, but like both. Cedar Fair could serve me generic no-name cola and I wouldn't give it a second thought. I don't really care.

As long as Minute Maid is a choice (and not the "light" crap), its ok since I really only drink water at parks unless I want a lemonade.

I just hope that there are more "diet" options. I hate hate hate Diet Coke.

People actually buy the grossly overpriced drinks at CP?? :P

I usually just get water, so it won't affect me one bit. The only park I buy drinks at is Universal/IOA, as it is a respectable $3 or something (if not less). I have no problem as long as it is in the $3 range... But they charge that for a 20-oz at CP. No thanks... I will have to look what they charge when I go later today, as I am guessing in the $4.50 or $5 range.

So long as they still have water, then I'm fine.

Bottled, from the tap, or drinking fountain, is just as good. I'm not picky when it comes to water. Well, maybe when I have to fork over some kind of ridiculous price for a bottle.

The new Dasani will run about $4.50 to $5.00 per bottle experts predict.
