    Put My Short Back On GMCR

    You're thoroughly wrong.
    Actually, the only hope SODA has is renewed interest in home soda making and it isn't SODA that's going to get that done. It might be GMCR/KO. Guess who gut's carried along in the wave if that happens?
    If it wasn't for Honda, Harley would be long gone and you know that's true.
    So, wish GMCR the best if you ever expect SODA to recover.

    If a person holds SODA, they need to hope that Kold is successful. The problem is that no one seems to hold out much hope for Kold. The Motley article at least mentioned that people were still thirsty sometimes.

    FWIW I've been buying about 4 six packs of 16 oz soda when I go to Kroger lately. Let's see 4 times 6 x 16 oz equals 24 lbs. This seems like pretty good exercise versus just moving that machine into place just one time.

    $1.25 for an 8 oz. coke sounds a little pricey, but if I had one of these machines I could spend the first few months of ownership showing my friends how absurd it was. That many laughs is an added value some of you aren't recognizing.

    I just heard Rand Paul rattling off a bunch of ridiculous expenditures that the US government makes. That's fairly easy to explain. Can anyone explain GMCR doing this and being backed by KO?

    Is it sinking today because they forgot to fire Birnbaum, too, or is it that human beings no longer get thirsty? Which is it?

    Not that it matters, but what will PEP learn from 50 stores? I would guess that there are enough SODA shareholders in these communities to buy out the stock of PEP SODA caps pretty quickly.
    I suppose my point is that the plan makes no sense or at the most not enough sense to base any significant business decision on.
    I might even suggest that the plan has more to do with perception than reality. Perhaps PEP wants to benefit another negotiation for example.
    What Daniel has to say is most likely irrelevant because he probably doesn't really know what's going on anyways. He has clearly demonstrated his ability to not know what's going on for a couple years now.

    How much capacity do they have and how much could be made available if they wanted to max it? Your answer might be technically correct, but still doesn't deal with what I said. They could, I suspect , have gone a great deal further.

    The rumors of PEP were in June of 2013. Rumors moved the stock price as much as $40, maybe more that morning.
    You gotta wonder what is going on here. Would PEP try out a new product in such a limited market?
    Doesn't a limited market eliminate all the synergy that goes with a nationwide effort?
    I think they know this and this lack of seriousness suggests something, but I really don't know what.
    Perhaps it was a little reward for closing the West Bank plant.
    Maybe they'd go nationwide if they fired Birnbaum.
