Why does Coca-Cola taste so good at McDonald's?

March 04, 2021

There are many reasons the Coca-Cola® tastes so great at McDonald’s. We simply follow the guidelines set by Coca-Cola® and take steps to ensure that we serve a high-quality fountain beverage.

The water and Coca-Cola® syrup are pre-chilled before entering our fountain dispensers with the ratio of syrup set to allow for ice to melt. We also keep our fountain beverage system cold so your drink is always refreshing. In order to ensure our drinks are always meeting a gold standard, we filter all the water before it enters fountain dispensers.

There’s also our straw—it’s slightly wider than a typical straw so all that Coke® taste can hit your taste buds.
