New Coca Cola Jan. 3rd, 2012 @ 07:53 PM Reply

I've been an avid Coca Cola drinker for 15 years, so I know when it tastes different. I know whether it comes from a can, a bottle. a glass bottle, or a fountain.

When Coca Cola released these new cola cans with bears on them, I knew something was wrong. Something is off about the taste.

First I thought it was just the different can that tried to persuade my mind. They changed it back to the red can but with polar bears still on them. It still tastes different.

Am I the only one who thinks so? Am I the only one who thinks they probably use polar bear blood as the secret ingredient?

You've been hanging around too many conspiracy theory-making polar bears.

You need help, friend.

Yeah, I noticed that too. I wouldn't be surprised if the recipe was changed.

Coca Cola is sort of taking a stance to defend polar bears, actually, which is nice of them.
But yes, it sort of tastes different this winter.... Subtle, but there. Still yummy, though.

Many "secret" recipes here, although I don't know how many of these are accurate. The Coca Cola recipe intrigued me. >->

Bottles taste horrible, and always will.
Cans taste amazing, even if it's hot.
Crystal bottles taste nice.

I haven't tasted new coca cola yet.

Nah I think it'd been changed a few times and I never heard of them going back and just no one cared too much because it's soda and it was a slight change.

Once a corporation full of morons, always a corporation full of morons. I have to buy my coke from the fountains at a local gas station, which I don't usually like to do. The cans are just too off from me to tolerate it any longer.

Mcdonalds changed the way they made their friends half a dozen fries. They make it great then fail the next then bring the old way back. They keep making the same mistake, as so does Coca Cola.

Mcdonalds fries now suck and Coca Colas Coke now sucks. At least the ones from the bottles and cans do.

Although, I will say this, the glass bottled ones are ok too. The cola that comes from Mexico is the best though.

Wow that sentence is off. I meant "they changes the way they made their fries half a dozen times."

But maybe the first way I said it is correct too lol

I haven't noticed a change in the cans but i'm in Ireland so maybe they haven't changed over here yet. If there is a change in the taste I will definitely notice. I will be very annoyed, I like my coke a lot. Get's me through the day.

The taste, to me, tastes the same. Apparently when they released the can, a lot of people thought they were diet Coke instead of the original because of the can, and some cities actually changed it back to red.

If I remember from a highschool field trip (must be about a decade ago) Coca Cola is effectively made by two companies: The first makes and distributes the Syrup the 2nd uses the syrup to make drink. Thats partly the reason there is a slight variation in taste in different countries.

The other partial difference if the interwebs is to be trusted is that plastic bottles and cans of coke made in the USA are made with a different sweetner. The sweetner in Glass bottles to sensitive taste buds tastes sweeter and hence why glass bottles are generally accepted as being better.

You know, I've never had a soda from a glass bottle. It looks like Coca Cola brought back their classic glass bottle, which must have pissed off collectors.

Also, I totally forgot about seltzer plus soda syrup. Cheeburger Cheeburger has an awesome choice of syrups, and if you're with someone who ordered on for themselves, mixing them can be fun. best burger place I've ever been to. The selection of cheeses and sauces for your burger is awesome. Next time I go, I want to try a burger with mozzarella and marinara sauce. I bet it will be like eating the world's largest and most delicious meat ball.

None of those recipes are actually true. They're all urban legends.

Yeah I know what you mean. The taste became different. Its like something is a little off. Ive been drinking coca-cola like 5 years old, and the coke right now tastes a little differently. Its like back then it was tastier. But at least, it's still yummy!

Also, the polar bear design on the can. We dont have that here...

I'm pretty sure youre making your mind think it taste different when really it isnt different at all.
Or maybe your body is say lay off the coke and drink some water.

I can't imagine Coke ever messing with the recipe after the New Coke bombed in the eighties. People are pretty serious about their soft drinks and you don't fuck with people's cola of choice. That's just common sense. Maybe it's just psychological. There have been studies about different packages causing people to respond differently to the same product.

The best coke I've had, was a glass bottle from England. Coke in America just isn't the same.

I don't know if you can't read or if you're just totally retarded, but I DID state that I had thought that the new design may have made me think it was tasting different. But once I had tasting the red can again, it still tasted the same. It's not the image, they clearly changed the recipe. It's not the first nor the 50th time they've done so. This time it's a big change though.

And I drink 60 oz of water a day.
