Subject: Which types of soda/pop/coke do you prefer in a bottle or can?

Written By: Step-chan on 07/19/07 at 2:37 pm

For me, I like the way root beer taste in a can, not as much so in a bottle, also prefer Wild Cherry and Vanilla Pepsi in a can.

Some others(like Mountain Dew Code Red and Livewire), I'm not too picky about.

I am pretty picky about drinking pop from a can...I really don't like that tinny taste. The only kind that I really don't mind drinking from a can is gingerale, or even Sprite/7-Up. All others I would rather drink from a bottle.

Root beer and Cream soda tastes great in a bottle. I don't mind soda from a can, though.

I don't like Pepsi or Coke in cans anymore. Use to drink them like crazy when younger.

I like my sodas out of the bottle, but I would drink it from a can if it's the only thing available.

Prefer my Coke or root beer in bottles (plastic or glass).  If acan is the only thing available, I look for a glass.

My post on Friday didn't make it through(because of high stress).

I do notice that some types of pop(Regular Pepsi and Coke) taste different in a can than a bottle.

Although the flavored ones(like the Cherry and Vanilla ones), don't seem to taste any different(at least to me).

They have 12 oz plastic bottles of Mountain Dew. I prefer these over the can of MD mostly because they are cute.  For awhile Kmart was selling them at the same price as a 12pk of cans and I cleaned them out... now they raised the price to $1.50 more than it cost to buy the cans  >:(

I'm trying to think if plastic is cheaper or more expensive than aluminum(I'm leaning toward cheaper though).

Bottles are better for pretty much anything, IMO. I know it's just an illusion, but it seems fresher that way. I usually like "clearer" ones like 7-Up and Sprite, although I've never been that much into soda in awhile. I had enough from age 4-11 to last about three lifetimes. ;D

If I buy soda for home, it's usually in cans due to space in the 'fridge, but I perfer diet coke in the 20oz bottles.  Coke in a glass bottle seems to me to be a little bit flat.

Can only get pop here in refillable glass bottles and it all tastes better.  Nothing like a coke in the contoured glass.

I pretty much don't mind drinking soda from a can. The only one I like drinking better from a bottle was Pepsi. It just don't taste the same from a can then when it was in a bottle.

I generally prefer plastic individual bottles over 2 liter bottles or cans if they're chilled in a cooler like at a gas station. The carbonation and taste change in the other forms.


For me:

These are fine in cans: Wild Cherry Pepsi and Vanilla Pepsi, Barqs Root Beer, Sprite and 7up.

But these are usually better in bottles: Mountain Dew Code Red/Livewire/Game Fuel.

When I'm at home, I like to drink Waitrose Diet Cola in cans. If I'm taking away a salad or a sandwich from Quadruples in North Finchley or a sub from Subway, then I prefer to buy Diet Coke and Pepsi Max in bottles.

I like Mountain Dew in a can, although I tend to chug those.

A couple weekends ago my sister had some Cokes from Mexico in the glass bottles.  Those were awesome.

For the most part, I don't really care one way or the other. However, to me root beer is best when it's in a glass. (Of course, it was likely bottled or canned to begin with, but I don't drink it directly from either container.)

I prefer soda in a can because most of the bottled stuff is in plastic bottles. And I don't usually buy 2-liter bottles because the pop goes flat after about two days.

Coke in a bottle.

I prefer Coke in a bottle over can.  It tastes different to me.
