According to the fast food chain’s website, there are several reasons why the Coca-Cola from McDonald’s is so good. It comes down to temperature control, water filtration and storage:

“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 can always be at the peak of refreshing. In order to ensure our drinks are always meeting a gold standard, we have proper filtration methods in place.”

Another possible explanation? The straw, which is slightly wider than other fast food chains, McDonald’s said.

Whether you agree with the claim that McDonald’s has the best fountain drinks or not, the chain says its goal is to ensure that its Coke tastes the same as when you buy it in the bottle.

As of April 2017, McDonald’s is offering any size soft drinks for just $1.
