Why Does McDonald’s Coke Taste So Good?

by Shane McGlaun

McDonald’s isn’t exactly fine dining, but they have two things on the menu that are fantastic. One is the french fries – they’re not too crunchy and not too soft, with plenty of salt. The other are their fountain Cokes. I know I’m not the only person who wonders why Coke taste so much better at McDonald’s than just about any other place.

The reason is simple – apparently it’s because McDonald’s follows Coca-Cola’s exact handling directions, and also uses metal containers for the syrup. MickeyD’s has its syrup shipped and stored in old school stainless steel containers rather than the plastic ones so many places use these days.

It also pre-chills the water and Coke syrup before they go into the drink machine. The entire fountain drink system is cold and it uses proper filtration. Plus, that wide straw also allows more to hit your tastebuds at once. Damn, now I want fries and a Coke.
