1. Fountain (assuming the ice is good and mix is right, etc)

2. Can - needs to be ice cold, but definitely tastes better than out of a plastic bottle

3. Bottle - I was assuming plastic when I read the poll, but a glass bottle would vault it's way up to #2

Sodas are evil.

Since Woot is also located in Texas, we all say Coke instead of Soda or Pop when referring to carbonated soft drinks.

Cokes are best served from an overinflated old tire. Shotgunning of champions.

1) Home made root beer
2) fountain drink

tolerance: a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one's own.
BOC: 4 Including the very last Woot!-off B)C. One of the lucky few.

Can, bottle, and fountain. If I'm getting a fountain drink then it must be Coke, other wise I prefer Pepsi out of a bottle but usually drink it from a can so I waste less.

Soda by the glass, specifically a soda glass.

I love my SodaStream, especially Diet Cream and Diet Rootbeer.

SodaStream! Make your own soda. When is Woot going to have SodaStream?

It is soda. The two largest producers of soft drinks call it soda.

Cans are where it's at! I am FLOORED that bottles are getting this much love!! Plastic bottles SUCK.I'm a little torn on fountains. We all tend to drink more when we have this huge cup and wide straw. And, somehow like a fine scotch, the melting ice adds some deliciousness to the mix.

But there's just something about cans I'm in love with. Icey cold and great tasting. NOTHING beats Mountain Dew out of a wide mouth can. NOTHING.

Yeah and you probably call them buffalo wings but trust me, they're chicken wings.

Soda Stream! Love to make lemon and orange soda with the fruit from my yard when it's ripe. Otherwise it's wine, definitely from a bottle. BTW, where I grew up it's tonic--not pop or soda...

pop vs soda debate is all about where you live: http://www.popvssoda.com

Pop:137109
Soda:139512

The US is pretty much divided 50/50.

...which means that half the country is wrong. It is Soda or we will accept SodaPop, but it is most definitely not Pop.

Pop is what a balloon does.
Pop is your dad.
Pop is a type of music that I like yet despise.
Pop is not a beverage.

All about the SodaStream too. Folks who want to spread out from the company's gross official flavors should check out the syrups from lots of sites. (Woot has sold some and maybe this thread will inspire them to bring them back or sell more.) Check out Jo Snow, Pittsburgh Soda, P&H Soda and others.

It's also pretty easy to buy parts that modify your SodaStream so you can use larger CO2 tanks. The guy at Pittsburgh Soda reviewed one very favorably but there are a few options at (somewhat) different price levels. (You're basically getting custom-machined pieces so you're not going to get an economy of scale on these.)

And yeah, for the commercial stuff, it's all about the ginger beer and the dry cucumber soda. The Dry Soda Co. also makes a good blood orange that's my second choice when cucumber is sold out.

Fountain is best when it's done right. The brix has to be balanced, crushed ice if you can get it, and most important, decent water. If you get a fountain drink in Appleton, Wisconsin, it's like drinking cola flavored Clorox.

As for SodaStream, I just can't see myself paying $150 for what is essentially a seltzer bottle. Not when you can get one for five bucks at the Goodwill store, or free, if you look around your grandparent's attic.

Metal can leech into acidic liquids. Glass, not so much. Before aluminum, canned beverages had a distinct "tinny" taste. Aluminum isn't as bad, but some folks believe consuming even tiny amounts of aluminum is very bad for you.

Hope that answers your question.

Fortunately Bed Bath & Beyond has the $99 model that's $79 after the 20% off coupon that no sane person ever enters the store without.

All cans are lined.
