When it states the date of "supersession" so definitely it leads one to question it. Are there really no soda fountains left? I doubt it. --Daniel C. Boyer 18:32, 17 September 2006 (UTC)

What is it?[edit]

As a non-American, I have difficulty figuring out what a "soda fountain" actually is from reading this article. Surely it can't just be the drink dispensing machine that they squirt a Coke out of whenever I go to McDonalds, as indicated by the second picture in the article?

In one of Bill Bryson's books, where he talks about his childhood memories from the 1950s, he talks about sitting on a twirly stool at a marble-topped counter at which soda was served to him - that is what he described as a soda fountain. 19:21, 7 November 2007 (UTC)

Right, a "soda fountain" can mean both the machine that makes sodas and an establishment that sells sodas. The article does say this, although suggestions about how it can be made clearer are welcome. —Chowbok 18:16, 10 March 2008 (UTC)

So it's something that makes fizzy drinks; a fizzy drinks machine. Calling it a "dispenser" is a bit misleading. (talk) 15:17, 6 April 2010 (UTC)


Do these things usually filter the water? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:21, 15 January 2009 (UTC)

More clarity needed[edit]

As mentioned above by another editor, this article is unclear. So what exactly is a soda fountain? This is an American term. It is unknown elsewhere yet this article doesn't properly tell us that it is simply a drinks dispenser. That's right, isn't it?--ЗAНИA talk WB talk] 08:12, 8 September 2012 (UTC)
