Can't Beat The Real Thing....

Coca-Cola built a new headquarters in downtown Atlanta.

The old one was near Underground Atlanta and the new one is next to the Georgia Aquarium.

If you are offering tours to the public it makes sense to position yourself among other attractions.

I'm not sure what the tie-in is with the i-pod but it appears in the new section of images and marketing Coke.

Did not see ANY mention of early-Cokes containing controlled substances but there were claims of it being a curative and tonic for good health.

A sign stated the "popular Coca Cola Polar Bear" would pose for pictures with children in a designated setting.

Saw an historic picture of Betty White in an ad for Butter Nut Coffee, a Coke Company product, dating back to the 1970s.

After her Super Bowl ad for Snickers, the public started an online petition and she soon will be the guest host for a Saturday Night Live.

Guess Abe Vigoda, her co-star in the commercial, will have to wait his turn to be on SNL.

Hmm, I never noticed before but polar bear claws do NOT retract like a cat does.

A huge room had a bottling operation behind glass on one side and several multi-fauceted dispensers so you could taste a variety of Coca cola company beverages including Hi-C and other fruit juices.

The machines were marked Asia, Africa, North America, Mexico, etc so you could taste how the mixtures, colors and tastes of the products vary around the world.

You also were given a Coke bottled right there as a reminder of your visit.

Like most large scale attractions, to reach the exit, signs direct you through the souvenir shop. A really BIG store. Featuring all things Coke.
(Like always, click on the photos for more detail. Thanks.)
