I always prefer to drink my coke in a glass even when it comes from a can. Somehow it taste different to me.

my imagination or do you think it really taste different?

not really, but it tastes much better when it's made from cane sugar than corn syrup...

Yes, it does.

Want the ultimate Coca-cola experience?

Me too. It annoys the wife that I prefer a "glass" glass instead of a plastic one.

I always hear that, yet I've never noticed even the slightest difference.

I think it tastes different yeah. And +1 on the styrofoam and ice!

Supposedly there is some increased Alzheimers risk from aluminum cans too. *shrug*

I've noticed most pop tastes far better in a glass or a bottle than from a can, much like beer...

I would rather not drink beer than drink it from a can or from a tap. Long necks are the only way for me unless I'm so drunk I can't taste it anyway... lol

I also seem to recall that the old steel cans were much less intrusive than aluminum as far as affecting the taste of the beverage they contained... Was it just me?

The little 8 oz. bottles taste alot better than the can. I also will not drink milk unless it is in a "glass" glass. IMO everything is better out of glass, soft drinks, alcohol, milk, even water. Probably just a mental thing.

+1

I can not stand drinking any beverage from a can or plastic bottle.... be it a soda, beer, etc.

But, if I pour a Coke into a glass with ice, it's world of difference.

And a ++1 on Coke served in the 8oz bottles. I've only bought them a few at the supermarket (way over priced).

When I was a kid, Coke in an 8oz or 12oz bottle was the norm.

IMO in order of best taste to least.

Glass > Can > Plastic

This is correct, but only if the Coke is from the fountain.

Does Coca Cola taste different when drank in a glass then can?


Yes!

I used to like when it came in glass bottles.

Hecho en Mexico, and damn tasty with REAL sugar.



The only reason they use REAL sugar is to disguise the urine from the workers relieving themselves in the vats.

If it came in a can, it's been sitting there for however long having it's taste be affected by the can, pouring that into a glass wouldn't make any difference.

However, drinking from a glass vs a can or bottle allows you to aspirate the flavour as well as taste it, enhancing the flavour.

I don't drink the stuff anymore - but I can tell you that it is much better in New Zealand and Brazil than the US.

Much different. Pouring canned beer in a glass has the same effect. It lets the beverage air out and release it's flavor.

Damn, now I want a beer.....

....in a glass.

I was watching a news story on champagne today, and one of the winemakers from Moet was on.

He said you should always drink champagne from glass and not plastic because the bubbles react to the plastic and get bigger, thus changing the taste.

I'd imagine it's sort of the same thing with carbonated beverages. Glass seems to be the perfect container for them, whereas aluminum and plastics seem to each taste different as well. In the can I imagine the bubbles are much smaller than when pured out and exposed to air.

sprite from mcdonalds is 10x better than from a can. not to divert the question too much.

The Mexicans won't drink Coca-Cola unless its from their motherland. Darn if they're not smart enough not to go for the corn syrup junk we get.

And since Cola is "American Champagne" your contribution couldn't be more relevant.



I like it out of the can better and also:


DOWN WITH THE HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP!!!



WTF is this? This is supposed to be AMERICA! Coca-Cola is an AMERICAN contribution to the world, and yet we are reduced to endure this crap while the rest of the world gets the REAL Cola???

Coke changed to corn syrup in 1980, before the New Coke was marketed.

Yes, Mexican Coca Cola is the best. Another invader from the south but this is one that business doesn't like......ay!

I prefer it in a glass with ice cubes... tastes kind of metallic out of the can or something to me.
Link Posted: 4/4/2006 6:38:34 PM EDT
High fructose corn syrup is not easy for the human body to digest.
So what happens?
The body turns it into fat.

You'd be surprised how much of that crap is in the everyday food that we eat.
Next time you're in the market, take a close look at the ingredients.
You will be pissed.

The best part is that the reason we have to use corn syrup in America is because the price of sugar is kept artificially high by the Government through agricultural subsidies, thanks to lobbyists from the big farm corporations.
