    Coca Cola-why does it taste soo much better in glass bottles?

    Same recipe isnt it?

    And yet the stuff in the glass bottles is somehow infinitely superior to plastic bottles and cans.

    weird

    interesting-especially the bit about the glass bottles having cane sugar instead of corn syrup-never knew that.

    Aye, I agree it does taste better in a glass bottle.

    Also, you quite often get taint from aluminium cans.

    Edit: Whoops, just realised that the article goes on to explain that.:oops:

    I've always thought this too :thumbsup:

    i think the same about irn-bru!

    agreed-I only buy coke and irn bru in glass-irn bru in cans is revolting.

    I always thought the coke thing was my mind playing tricks but masterchiefs link makes me see there IS a difference.

    Stella brewed in the UK tastes terrrible, bottles or cans.

    It's a shame they don't get it imported like they used to - the Belgian stuff is really nice.

    You can buy imported stuff but only in 6 packs, the taste is more pure and less acidic.

    you see this works with normal irn bru, so mch nicer out the glass bottle, but diet irn bru which is my drink of choice is a million times better out a 2 litre plastic bottle than the can or the glass bottle.
