The World of Coca-Cola Museum

by Leeya

In June, I visited Atlanta for the first time. While it was a brief trip, it was definitely a memorable one!

During our trip, we visited the World of Coca-Cola museum. It was clearly a popular tourist destination as the museum was packed. The museum had many interactive exhibits including “Scent Discovery” and “Taste It.” In “Taste It,” I could try over 100 types of Coke products from around the world. My favorites were the Watermelon Fanta from the Philippines and the Moldovan Coke. The worst one was the Sour Plum Coke from China which tasted like barbeque sauce.

What stuck with me the most from this museum was the international symbol of Coke-Cola. It is truly one of the most powerful and recognizable logos in the world. In a way, it is applicable to the topic of the magazine because it serves as a representation of the US. Overall, it shows how US projects can become a global icon, one that a lot of people associate with the United States.
