- Product Type: At-Home Soda Maker
The Keurig company is relatively good, so it was kind of shocking to see one of the most infamous failed tech products in recent memory come from them. The company introduced the Keurig Kold in 2015, which was meant more for making sodas than coffee. They even had a deal with Coca-Cola to sell their pods for the device. Yet the Kold had several issues that made it a failure. First, it likely did not sell very well to start with due to the high asking price of around $370. Second, many felt it was often too big, loud, and inconvenient for making soda. Plus, it was often unreliable when making sodas and could even make them taste kinda off. It made more sense just to buy a Coke. On top of that, American soda consumption has been going down for many years now anyway.
