Would You Rather Drink Soda From the Can or the Bottle?

Recently, a friend told me that she only drinks soda from the bottle, not the can, because it tastes better. I don't drink enough soda to detect a difference, but since then, I've been trying to compare the two to see if there is any variation in taste. I've never tried them side-by-side, but honestly, I think they both taste great.

How about you? Do you think soda from a can tastes different from soda in a bottle?

Since you gave us the other option I will vote for drinking it from a glass, glass

Don't usually drink it, but if so I would prefer fountain or glass bottle.

I agree, glass bottles are the best. The first time I drank Coke from a glass bottle I thought I was drinking an entirely different drink. So much better!

if i ever do drink soda which isn't all that often, i would rather have it from a bottle than a can. i don't like the metallic taste from a can, and to be honest, i prefer flatter soda which i feel you can get from a bottle than a can. i actually like a 'fountain' soda that weird?

I prefer soda from a can because it's colder and fizzier. I absolutely HATE fountain soda though...I've had too many bad experiences with the syrup running out or the carbonation being "off".

Yeah - gotta have a straw so my lipstick doesn't get all over the bottle and my face.

if forced to choose between the two, i choose can (colder!) but if given the option of anything, i pick a mcdonalds glass, fountain diet coke, with ice and a straw!

I'm not much fo a soda fan...BUT, I would opt for the bottle for the sole reason that I don't know what little critters have been playing tag on top of my can in the warehouse.

I like glass bottles the best, they don't change the taste at all and they are just the right size for me. I also love the chic cans Izze comes in.

In a glass, filled with ice. Has to be drunk from a straw as well.

Can tastes better to me - although I have been on a coke strike for a little over a year now, and they taste sick now. I can't handle a whole one on my own, after two sips I'm done!

Poured from can into giant glass. Add ice. I need the bubbles to pop before they go into me. For some reason, I can't get bubbly stuff down. The bubbles don't pop! This is why I can't drink shakes. They won't stay down. *ahem*

I very rarely drink soda, but when I do I prefer bottles. Not sure why.

I love soda from the fountain, especially coke or Root Beer. But I do love soda from glass bottles (like Fanta Orange) and soda from a can taste so much better then from the bottle. I have stopped buying soda at gas stations that are in bottles because it tastes bleh, so it helps me be good and buy a bottle of water. I am actually drinking soda from a can as I post this!
