 Coke or Pepsi in Cans Versus Bottles

I was talking to two of my neighbors the other day and both of them said that in each of their homes that they prefer coke or Pepsi in a can rather than a plastic bottle.

Their preference is so strong that if they only have bottles left over from a party, they won't drink it, and will drive out to get the canned version.

I have no preference one way or the other, I only like the plastic because it is resealable.

I drink more of the stuff than I should, has anyone else come across this bit of trivia?

 Coke or Pepsi in Cans Versus Bottles

Some how there is a slight difference in taste between plastic and aluminum due to percieved lower temp. of drinking from an aluminum can or so the theory goes. I have a buddy that will not drink his beer from bottles.....only from a can. He says it taste better from a can. Can chill faster too. I prefer cans unless we are having a large group over and then use the plastic bottles. The soda goes flat pretty fast even if you reseal it.

 Coke oe Pepsi in Cans Versus Bottles

My employees are real particular... if you put it in front of them they drink it.

Seriously, the crowd is split between Coke & Pepsi, the coke guys won't drink Pepsi and vice-versa, there's always an ice chest full of both (and LOTS of cold water, too) on every job.

However, I have doscovered that they won't drink pop from a can WHILE working, only a bottle. The logic is that a bottle cap keeps out the ever present dust. Besides, if they're on a machine closing the lid keeps it from splashing over everything, and believe me, dried pop full of dust is nasty stuff, it turns into a sort of tar-like substance.

Best of luck.

 Coke oe Pepsi in Cans Versus Bottles

Bottles are much better on Tractors and in cars for all the reasons mentioned already. But otherwise, for some reason I seem to like the cans better. Maybe its the cold feel of the can if you aren't going to let it sit around and get warm.

On a side note, except for the sub-compacts most tractors don't seem to have drink holders including the Kubota B7800.

I was thinking about a swinging style drink holder from a boating supply house, but I don't really want to drill the ROPS to mount it. My 1st idea is a few hose clamps holding a board in place and screw the mount to that.

I bet many other board members have already found good working solutions to this problem.

How about some other ideas for me to choose from?

Thanks in advance.

Plastic bottles leave a little to be desired. If water become warm in the bottle then I can taste the release agent from the bottle. The material is non toxic but? I have found that reuse makes it better but not something the drink companies do.
Similarly the older plastic coatings on the cans would impart a taste from the coating. I have never compared canned water so I am not sure how bad it is relatively. I believe the coating have improved as they have higher solids and likely UV cure today. I could taste it in beer so stick to the glass bottles.
Like anything you can get accustomed to the taste and then think it adds to the flavour. As I work in plastics I know what the materials are and am not to keen to flavour my food with them.

We buy all our soda in cans and all our beer in bottles. Nobody in our house cares for soda in plastic bottles. Especially those stupid 2-liter bottles that lose carbonation after pouring a single glass. The only way to drink a beer is in frozen mugs and pilsner glasses, and we have a freezer full of those.

And, many or most JD CUTs have cupholders that work great. I usually pour a soda into a no-spill travel mug with ice and it's good to go.
