  • I'm mostly a can person, but certain situations fountain is good too! Get it where they don't have gross city water taste, and if you're lucky where they got the blend perfect, it's really good and bubbly.

  • Yea in Florida we call it fountain drinks

  • McDonald’s is in plastic bags. I worked there 1x

  • Oh my goodness**

  • There should be another couple of these two doing Good Mythical Night 🌃 That would be great. Lol Just a thought.

  • Mexico Coca Cola in the glass bottle is the best.

  • All the drinks are poured into a glass cup... of course everything tastes like glass

    • Hahaha

  • I would win at this. I drink so much soda

  • 1. Glas, then can and then plastic

  • Taco Bell has the best Fountain Dew. McDonalds has the best CocaCola.

  • Rhett had to much fun lol

  • Glass bottled soda often has cane sugar instead of corn syrup. So it can taste "funny" if your not expecting the difference in sweetness

  • 3,400th comment

  • Its all the same to me? 🤣

  • I have the impression you guys taste these drinks and they are not cold at all 😔

  • Call me crazy, but I’m a plastic bottle man. I’ve grown up with bottled soda.

  • You cannot drink Dr. Pepper without ice. Sorry, I'm a Texas girl and cold DP is best. That's sacrilegious y'all.

  • Never heard of Topo Chico before today, but I'm sorry Link didn't get it.

  • I used to work at McDonald's.

  • McDonald's only ships and stores Coca Cola syrup in stainless steel vats. All other flavors are in bags.

  • The glass bottles they have at Anna's burritos are the bom, by the way so is your podcast!

  • Okay but McDonalds Sprite when they get it right is the best Sprite I've ever had!

  • Can for soda is just superior

  • My girl thought I was crazy that cans were better, she said there is no difference!!!! Total Can Man!!!!!!!

  • Can for the win

  • Can all day for the most crisp taste

  • I dont know why but I've always liked fountain water

  • Y’all forgot glass Fanta

  • I love Dr Pepper everyway EXCEPT from Taco Bell, Taco Bell's DP tastes like ass

  • When they used to serve still fanta in McDs I used to get that as it was by far the best choice.

  • What on earth is LINKS accent?!!

  • where can i find a man exactly like Rhett damn

  • Always loved the can better

  • Hold up! Why don’t we have glass option for Fanta? That’s the best glass soda?!?

  • Link being devastated by not getting the topo Chico was so funny to me

  • McDonald's fountain Sprite is the best Sprite on the market. Fight me.

  • Wait... you guys can't get glass bottles of fanta an America?

  • McDonald's has a strong game, BUT!!! My movie theatre here has great fountain drinks. I will say this may not be a fair judgment because fountain drinks lose their effervescence quicker than "contained" drinks. In my opinion, nothing beats a good fountain drink straight from the source.

  • Where is the glass bottled Fanta???

  • I worked at McDonald's it comes in plastic bag in a cardboard box

  • The questions that need answers.

  • Glass bottle everyday.

  • Glass bottle definitely tastes better BUT green glass bottles tastes better than clear glass!

  • I am so glad this was done. I have been telling friends and family for YEARS!!! that can is just vastly better and they tell me I'm crazy. thank you for justifying what I have known all along!!!

  • People don't say fountain outside of the south?

  • I think they're can men

  • theres additional syrup in the mcdonalds cup

  • Theres 4 kinds of people. Bottle, can, fountain, or none.

  • Jarritos Mineralagua is the fizziest beverage

  • The infamous roast intialy force because mascara methodically replace beyond a tiny kangaroo. ruddy, roasted sofa

  • I prefer cans for all sodas except root beer. Root Beer is best In an ice cold glass.

  • Should’ve done root beer!

  • So glad these guys are from the south! Makes them very relatable😂😂

  • I grew up on gmm

  • It’s polar pop for me 😂

  • But glass is its own thing

  • Burger King - no comparison

  • You guys should do fried foods boiled vs boiled foods fried

  • Fountain drinks are calibrated to be served with ice

  • It varies from drink to drink

  • There's this asian buffet place near me that has the BEST fountain sprite, best sprite i have ever had in my life.

  • no slander formed against MCDONALDS SPRITE!!!

  • I still prefer glass bottle more

  • Fountain is far superior!

  • Get the Coca-Cola from Mexico

  • I love soda from the bar.

  • Noggqa

  • I like glass bottles just cause they make me think of beer and I feel special ✨

  • Mexican glass bottle tru!

  • Glass bottle soda or a can soda are my favorite.

  • Glass bottle is absolutely the best tasting for soda

  • I was confused the entire time tryna correlate which letters and order correlated from one side to the other

  • I can taste the glass aren’t you drinking from a glass.

  • Shoulda said, “bottle lovers, can huggers, and soda jerks” see how many people understand the joke lol

  • Soda in a cup with ice and a straw can't be beat. It's just colder and better.

  • Can is my favorite :)

  • I'm just sitting here like "I don't like carbonation" ._.

  • I always thought McDonalds fountain Sprite was the best Sprite. Now I want a canned sprite.

  • No Irn Bru?

  • Am I the only one that thinks the labeling in this was confusing?

  • I dont understand why link hates Dr.Pepper is good stuff

  • sometimes I just feel like gmm makes important videos. this is one of them.

  • I do prefer the can because the carbonation is a lot crisper for the most part.

  • Mcdonalds fountains are deliciously better than any other form

  • For me the can is always better with the exception of Fanta for which I enjoy the fountain drink best oddly enough.

  • Ice cold can or glass bottle all day any day. Fountain pop is always hit or miss

  • Despite everything presented to me in this video I am still a proud fountain person

  • Glass yum!

  • They should do it with beer

  • Rhett says “Don’t ya think you can taste”. Link says “Sunkist”. Lol!!!

  • As a former McDonalds employee I can actually deny all this 😂 the “soda”( it’s literally just all the sugar ) is literally in a bag that we put into our filter in the back which is connected to our fountain which is connected to the carbonation tank

    • I need a bag of McDonald's Dr Pepper then please 😂 fountain Dr Pepper is top tier

  • Ice also plays a big part on making fountain drinks so good.

  • plastic bottle soda is not good imo

  • Glass bottle all the way!

  • I love your beard

  • Why are you not using glass bottles for all drinks?

  • I’m so glad somebody else can taste the can 😂

  • TRUE!!!!!

  • Glad to see some new can men, nothing better than a cold can of pop.

  • This episodes fan made outro was absolutely _A DORA BOWL!!!!_
