It's the Can Can!

Did you ever notice soda tastes different from a can then a bottle?

I can’t pinpoint it other than to say perhaps the metal of the can alters the soda.

Whenever I get my drink of choice, Diet Wild Cherry Pepsi, it’s in a 16 oz or is it 20 oz plastic bottle. I get on in the morning & it taste divine. The right amount of sweetness, the right amount of artificial cherry flavoring. Of course, the exact right amount of caffeine to get me going in my morning work routine.

During the day if I get parched I will buy a bottle or can from the vending machine. Occasionally I get the can. I have to tell you, it’s a bit on the fizzy side, tart and not as flavorful. I drink it, it still tastes ok. My mind just wonders if it’s the metal of the can changing the taste. Not concerned about any long effects on my health as I have been drinking diet Pepsi pretty much since I was a teen & that was a looooong time ago.

It just happened to cross my mind.

So tell me, do you think soda tastes different from a can vs. a bottle?

Better yet, do you call it soda or pop?
