Keurig is the number one maker of machines that instantly make hot drinks – primarily coffee. People love the SodaStream. So why couldn’t Keurig make an extra buck by trying to edge in on that instant soda market? That seemed to be the thinking that spawned the Keurig Kold.
But as we all know, when you mix hot liquids with cold liquids, you get something lukewarm, which aptly describes how the public received Keurig’s now-discontinued cold beverage system. Despite having a number of advantages, including a partnership with Coca-Cola and Dr Pepper Snapple and the ability to spit beverages out at “the ideal chilled temperature,” less than nine months after we first reported on Keurig Kold, the product has been pulled from the market.
