Why Coke Tastes Better At McDonald's

It’s not a myth, and we’ve got the evidence to prove it!

There is a subtle difference in the taste of fountain soda that differentiates it from its other counterparts. People who don’t notice it tend to disagree by saying ‘Coke is Coke’, and while that may be true, they tend to ignore the fact that many fountain soda connoisseurs end up at McDonald’s just because of the soda. Now we have definitive proof that fountain soda is slightly different, and this is why it is so alluring to a vast number of people.

For all the naysayers, and especially for all those who knew the difference, there is something different in all fountain sodas that gives them a slightly different taste.

This internationally beloved drink tastes better at McDonald’s and here is the reason why.


Firstly, while many chain restaurants tend to have their Coke delivered in bags, McDonald’s has it delivered in stainless steel containers.

This is pivotal in preserving the ingredients and helps keep the Coke fresh.

Water plays an important role in a fountain drink.

85% of a fountain drink is water, so if the water is terrible, you are most definitely going to notice. McDonald’s is meticulous about their water, and each location has a reverse osmosis filter, which provides the best water possible.

This is the #1 reason why their Coke tastes the best — they have the cleanest water you can get.
