I'm sorry, what chemicals will Keurig be using again? I'm just the doofus so how could I possibly be an expert. You let us know what chemicals they're going to use when you've made the decision on which answer will fit you best my friend. You can do it, I have much faith in you. I'll even get that Google search engine started for you with a hint: Molecular. Graciousness is the word of the week!
How dare you Bcart? What personal attack are you speaking about. My name is most certainly, as certified by the government, Golden Doofus. Under this factual representation, he has never attacked me or called me names other than stupid, uneducated liar, moron and thief. No, but seriously the gentleman in question has some severe issues. But at least he has made a good friend in iggi. We can all use a good friend from time to time.
So tell us what chemicals are being used to produce Co2 as a byproduct. Tell us since you state they are using chemicals to produce Co2. What are these chemicals? Don't make a claim and not support the claim with facts my friend. Just for the record, I know you haven't any supportive understanding to your claim, but just as with most of your name calling and outlandish comments; this is just one more. AMD, go ahead as the floor is yours to tell us the chemicals being used to create the Co2 byproduct. Try to do so without name calling too as every time you come on this board you feel the need to denigrate others.
And here I thought I gave you both kudos and a pat on the back. And I thanked you for reading and drawing inaccurate conclusion like you did during your google search. How gracious can I be my friend? Oh well, I win some and I win some, you lose some and lose some more. I'm aware of your time restraints as you must return to the CO2 focus. Actually if you look at the PEP vs. KO portfolio of beverages KO is more diversified away from those pesky chemicals, but that is just another falsehood you've decided to throw out there instead of actually looking into it. I agree that PEP is the better partner and yes they have been the Johnny come lately...hey you are getting it here. Sorry, SBUX is an acquirer of the major trends as that is an evidenced forced position because their products are quite unhealthy, laden with sugars, HCFS, chemicals, preservatives, food colorings omg the list goes on and on. It's ok not have read the bottles on their Pressed Juices either. But go back to google and actually get it right this time my friend. Again, kudos and thank you. My admiration is boundless!
Mr. AMD, I thought we are only supposed to focus on CO2, yet, there is no mention of CO2 in this comment. Can't break your own rules now, let's not lose faith.
First, who said anything about a powder. Second, thank gosh you finally finished with your google search. I thought 45 minutes was exorbitant, but you gave it the college effot. Third, kudos for the "never give up, never surrender, above and beyond Buzz Lightyear efforts", even if you still lay a goose egg my friend. And thank you for reading all my articles and consistently misunderstanding points of fact in favor of illogical conclusions and distortions. Had I blue ribbon to offer I would, instead kindly receive my pat on your back. And as always, be well!
Graciousness, not bad! Facts only except on price still do be determined:
1. Mix permits the carbonation of any recognizable liquid, flavoring etc. KK permits carbonation of 26-30 supplied flavors alongside simple seltzer.
2. Mix employs touch-screen interface with wifi capabilities. KK, simple, does not.
3. Mix takes up to 60 seconds to carbonate liquid which is not simple H20, 30-40 seconds for H20 carbonation. KK takes up to 45 seconds to produce beverage.
4. Mix offers multiple servings per active carbonation. KK offers 8-10oz drink per active pod use for still and/or sparkling beverage
5. Mix permits data storage such as drink recipes, contacts and connectivity for increased developer applications already in the works. KK, simple, does not.
6. Mix requires limited maintenance for aerator in dishwasher if desired. KK requires frequent descaling and does not permit inner tank accessibility.
7. Mix does not require electricity whereby rendering device completely mobile. KK must be plugged and requires 60 seconds to boot system upon first interaction.
8. Mix, aesthetically... KK, need I say more. Award winning vs. box, just a fact.
9. Mix, permits total customization of beverage. KK permits moderate customization
10. Mix will price $189.99-$229.99 with applicable subscription availability. KK will price $159.99-$199 with applicable subscription availability. (MSRP subject to change)
11. Mix will include several licensed brand offerings, KK will include fewer licensed brand offerings.
I'm afraid in this single post you are 0-2, but my Yankees aren't doing much better. Whether in the air or in a cylinder, it remains a chemical compound composition. Don't worry, eventually it is placed in an aluminum system, therefore it becomes bombarded with additional ions, which are as safe for consumption as what you drank before SodaStream and what Kold Karbonator will also safely have consumers consume. The falsehood here is the premise your using to assume that anything can be done in the category that doesn't emit some form of chemical reaction. But it's ok, you can be as wrong as you want to be today, tomorrow and then on. We all enjoy your rants, truly. There is no getting beyond the fact
I hate when people create doubt about their level of intelligence and then open their mouths, speak and sub sequentially remove all doubt that they completely lack the necessary attribute. When CO2, which is the compounding of two elements, carbon and oxygen, decides its not a chemical reaction, please report back to us. I would be of the opinion that without that understanding, it would serve to prove there are a great many things complicated to you sir. SodaStream's flavors and pods have chemicals, so will Kold Karbonator so the point I think you are hopefully and erroneously making is wrong... as usual, but thank you for trying. I'm not sure when you can find an opportunity to add value to the conversation in a way that supports factual representations rather than biased denigrating falsehoods, but whenever that time should come, again kindly let us know.
Yea, my Yankees are probably gonna stink up the joint again this year. At least my Celtics made it into the playoffs even though they will likely get bounced by Cleveland quickly. Quiz POP: First ever team/pitcher to lose a game in which pitcher threw a no-hitter? No google! Honor code! :)
Every time he rants I get the vision of George running out of the bathroom with his pants down screaming, "Say Vandelay Industries, Vandelay Industries"!
Cold is correct, Free in some regions are Naturals here and vice versa. Every market has a different consumer purchase intent so the marketing is respective of the consumer in the region.
That's the "Free" Line, naturals are similar but not branded the same way and have differing ingredients. So Free line up top, ok we are clear. Thank you. Play unfortunately doing quite poorly even with respect to its former positioned Genesis at retail. Something not quite right there as the lesser price and Skynz should be appealing but consumer is still in favor of the Source model. Could be branding because very, very, very little branding for Play (Splash) presently. Many stores do have the new Splash packaging now by the way.
Just got off the phone with him. Doing well for those who remember and care. Former head of SodaStream Americas. Vetting CEO position in CPG industry, has turned down a couple thus far that were not the right fit and currently sits on the Board of several companies. Good guy, built U.S. from $20mm business to $200mm so he is highly sought after.
Thanks epb2, I think that is my point though the Free have 4 flavors 2nd shelf usually and positioned next to SG whereas the naturals, natural cola and the like (6 skus or so) are at the bottom. But Yes if you could next time.
Naturals or Free, different no? Naturals bottom shelf Free I believe on second shelf in most stores presently.
