The Sims 2: Apartment Life

“After a long day of shopping or working out, everyone enjoys a nice cold refreshing drink. Take a break and quench your thirst with a chillin’ soda from the ‘Kooler than Ice’ Vending Machine. Aaaaah… burp… Now that’s a soda pop!” — The Sims 2: Apartment Life

The blue variation pictured below is already in the archive, but I thought I’d post it again alongside its “Kooler than Ice” brethren. [Source]

Apartment Life’s vending machines even showed up as a feature on its packaging…

The Sims

Not long after The Sims launched, Maxis partnered with Pepsi to deliver this soda machine as free DLC. This entry wouldn’t have been possible without fan-driven efforts to preserve the Pepsi machine DLC and patch the game’s launcher for Windows 10. Thanks, everyone!

The Sims FreePlay

My Simlish is a little rusty, but I’m pretty sure that translates to “soda.” Thanks, @cthulhu8books!

Sadly, The Sims FreePlay’s discontinued predecessor, The Sims Social on Facebook, didn’t have any soda machines. The closest it ever got was this Dr Pepper toilet.

Product placement at its finest.
