Why does coke in a glass bottle taste better?


Is this psychological, or is there a reason for this?

Coke in a glass bottle is more likely to be bottled using sugar instead of corn syrup. This is especially true for glass bottle Coca-Cola bottled in Mexico. There's a bit of a cult following for Coke bottled in Mexico, and there are even Mexican Coke fan pages on Facebook.

According to many people, this has a major impact on the taste.

Sodas, especially cola, are very acidic thanks to their use of phosphoric acid. Over time, this can dissolve plastic, changing the flavor of the drink. Aluminum cans also have a thin plastic coating on the inside to protect the metal, creating the same effect. Something similar happens to bottled water that's been sitting in the sun: Although the plastic doesn't dissolve as fast, there's no flavoring to cover the taste.

Fountain drinks don't have this problem, but they aren't mixed with the same precision as the bottled product. The water used can also flavor the soda, making for an inconsistent product. While it's possible to have a great fountain soda, you'll have better luck with a bottled drink.
