Chicago is Spending the Holidays with #AMCandCocaColaFreestyle

A big thanks to Markerly, AMC Theatres and Coca-Cola Freestyle for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions and thoughts are my own.

At the days start to get chilly in Chicago, what better way to spend some family (or friend) quality time indoors keeping warm while watching a great movie. Join AMC Theatres and Coca-Cola this winter and experience the new Coca-Cola Freestyle Machine and enjoy your own custom Coca-Cola Freestyle drink.

I love going to the movies. And this past week a couple of friends of mine and I did just that. We simply visited and found out which theatre location had the freestyle machine. After all we wouldn't want to be disappointed if we got to the theatre and it wasn't available. You can also download the AMC Theatre app to your phone and find a location that way. We also visited the site in order to find out what movies were playing. We decided we needed a good laugh and chose to watch Horrible Bosses 2, which did in fact turn out to be funny. I'm sure everyone will have their own opinion, but I enjoyed the second movie much more than the first. Must have been the addition of Chris Pine.

When we arrived to the theatre we were able to see the machines as soon as we walked in. If you aren't familiar with the machine, it is kind of like a big ATM. You walk up to it and are greeted by the numerous drink choices. You can choose to be simple (choose one flavor), or be adventurous and choose multiple flavors to add to one drink. It really is a lot of fun to come up with your flavor. This mega-machine puts 100+ drink choices at your fingertips. So whether you’re craving a Sprite® Peach, Hi-C® Raspberry Lime or a Dasani® Lemon, they've got you covered. And when you purchase a large drink there are free refills!

My fellow companions were a bit weary about mixing up their flavors. But they were happy to see the many different drink choices they had.

My one friend stayed classic and went with a Coca-Cola.

While my other friend was excited to see Fanta on the menu. She opted for Orange and Strawberry.

I on the other hand wanted to see what I could really do with the machine. I saw that they offered Hi-C flavored drinks. I went all out and pushed just about every flavor there was! In the end my drink was yummy and sweet. Mostly it tasted like a fruit punch with a hint of lime. Definitely a satisfying flavor for this pregnant girl!

Now head out to the movies with family or friends. Try out the Coca-Cola Freestyle Machines and let me know which flavors you chose! Here's a $1 off coupon, enjoy!
