>>7037139 I don't know if it tastes better, but the texture is definitely better. The ketchup in the plastic bottles is a little bit thinner and smoother than the glass bottled ketchup but who cares, fuck ketchup
that's only mexican coke. My favorite coke is actually the tiny bottles (8 oz i think) that uses HFCS. But the regular (12-14 oz dunno) the American one... its also better then mexican coke and also uses HFCS
>It's long been known that infinitesimal bits of plastic get into our food from containers. The process is called "leaching" or "migration." The chemical industry acknowledges that you can't avoid this transfer, noting on its web site that "[v]irtually all food packaging materials contain substances that can migrate into the food they contact."
>The amounts are small, says Laura Vandenberg, PhD, postdoctoral fellow in biology at Tufts University in Boston. "But almost any plastic container can be expected to leach trace amounts of plastics into food," she says.
TRUFAX: the 8oz glass is the original. My pappy owned a garage in Vicksburg, where the first bottled Coke was sold, that had a vending machine that still provided the original size bottles for a $0.25. He kept it from when he first opened the place in the 50's.
>tfw when you realize 8oz of Coke was the amount people wanted originally. >tfw when you can't get a coke less than 20oz in most stores and gas stations >tfw when we're all fucking fat as fat ass nowadays
god damn, America, we really fucked up somewhere along the way. Nobody needs more than an 8oz Coke at one time, it's a fucking treat, like candy and now we swig it like it was the cure for cancer
yeah, you know! i've seen those machines before. They have the little like... doors that open, right? I've used one at another place that had it restored. You put the money in and then you like open a little door thing?
And yeah i know about the portion size... if you've ever been to Europe all the "large" sizes are smaller then the "small" here. (like 16 oz)
but don't call me "we". I'm not a fucking american. I just live here and make money so I can make fun of you later from a nice house in a real country. America is the Black Friday of countries - fucking NUTS but you can get a deal if you know what you're looking for.

>>7037162 This is most prevalent when it comes to beer. Drink a Pabst Blue Ribbon out of a bottle and then drink one out of a can.
I rarely eat ketchup (when the burger lacks tomato, meatloaf glaze, thousand island dressing, etc), but I've been wanting to get my hands on some sir kensington's or other ketchup that isn't heinz, delmonte, or hunts.
>>7037162 >But why? Ingredients are the same Glass is extremely non-reactive. That's why it's used to store acids and such. It's stable and what goes in will come out virtually unchanged by the glass itself. Plastic can bleed flavors into the food, especially if exposed UV light, which can break down most plastic(slowly and microscopically) and that can get into the food and change the taste. Metal can also bleed a metallic flavor, even when given a plastic lining. Especially with acidic foods and drinks.
>>7037201 >try it with champagne, it tastes better from a champagne flute than from a similarly shaped child's plastic cup, for the same reason. >>7038499 >Champagne uses that cup shaped that way to minimize the surface area and reduce the loss of gas.
I believe there is a slight texture difference between the plastic and bottled ketchup but the real difference for me is the applications.
Unless the plastic bottle is almost brand new you tend to get farts of watery ketchup dirrhea all over the place. Of course, the bottle secretly says shake well to prevent this, but who the hells remembers?
The glass bottle, on the other hand, is the reminder. If you don't shake it, you aren't getting shit. And then when you do, instead of a few stringy line of ketchup all over the fucking place, you get big, thick globs right where you aimed for.
One of my favorite parts of the experience of eating a hamburger is to lift up the bun and unload those thick, juicy globs of ketchup right in the middle of the burger. If you do it right, the top bun should be almost frictionless, making you lose control of thr burger and spilling ketchup everywhere.
If you don't have a ketchup slip and side you haven't applied enough.
>>7037273 You're a retard. The first poster you replied to commented how acid wouldn't react with the plastic in the bottle. He's right. The leeching is a separate issue unaffected by the presence of acid.
