I was making a joke about how the taste difference is between drinking soda with and without a straw, only to find out that there really is a taste difference, I tested this on Coca-Cola and Pepsi only, so far. Go ahead, and try drinking them with and without a straw.

So, UG, which do you prefer, with, or without a straw. And "Because its less messy" is not a reason, its purely taste.

I like my POP in a bottle...

I prefer a bottle or can with no straw....in an ice filled glass I like a straw but I can manage without....

I drank a Diet Coke through a straw the other day, it tasted horrible.

Without ftw.

Man that's badass.

Are we talking straight straw, bendy straw, or one of those sick curvy straws? This is critical to answering the question. I prefer without because it's more convenient to just crack it open with the tab, but I'm a big fan of straws when other people take the time to place them in my beverages.
Unless it's in a fast food cup, with the lid and whatnot, I never use a straw.

Edit: Apparently not. Don't know where I heard that.

Is it true?

Mmm-hmm! I do, I do, I doooooo!
Without. I prefer to drink my soda without a straw, and without ice. If I go to a fast-food place and sit-in, I do use a straw, but otherwise it's without. And I never get ice, if I can help it. All it does is dilute the soda, and doesn't even keep it cold. It just makes more water and messes up the flow of beverage.

Heyyyy, look at that, the use of "soda" or "pop" by people in this thread seem to correspond to their location!
