Pop @ McDonalds

I noticed yesterday that the Mall of America McDonalds serves Pepsi, not Coke. It seems like McDonalds always serves Coke, and the odd shift really threw me for a loop. My grease-soaked food wasn’t quite the same without a watered down Coke. That’s how deeply ingrained brands are.

I can only guess that Pepsi has some kind of strangle-hold on the Mall of America. There are giant Pepsi placements in the food court area. Though the Baja Tortilla Grill (aka Baja Sol) sells Coke products. Must be some weird case of brand funk for people like me who actually notice these things.
