That’s what Coca-Cola’s spokespeople say, anyway. “The great taste of Coca-Cola is the same regardless of the package it comes in,” they insist. Rather, they say, “the particular way that people choose to enjoy their Coke can affect their perception of taste.” Sure, most people would agree that the cola is indeed delicious and refreshing, and pouring it into a glass or serving it over ice could influence the sensation of its flavor. But is it possible that the subtle variation in taste that some notice among aluminum cans, plastic bottles and glass bottles is more than just a psychological effect of their soda-consumption rituals?

Given that the formula is always the same, yes, according to Sara Risch, a food chemist and member of the Institute of Food Technologists. “While packaging and food companies work to prevent any interactions, they can occur,” she says. For example, the polymer that lines aluminum cans might absorb small amounts of soluble flavor from the soda. Conversely, acetaldehyde in plastic bottles might migrate into the soda. The FDA regulates this kind of potential chemical contact, but even minute, allowable amounts could alter flavor.

Even that’s not a sure bet, though. Coca-Cola maintains strict uniformity in processes in all of its worldwide bottling facilities, but it concedes that exposure to light and how long the product sits on store shelves may affect the taste. So yeah, the packaging might mess with Coke’s flavor, but we’ll still take it any day over New Coke.

As it happens very often, when it’s original, it’s very simple.
You just need eggs (2 for example) and other elements you like to put in your omelette (to each his own recipe) + a zipper storage bag.
Now, the method: put some water to boil in a pot while you crack the eggs in the bag and mix with the other elements. Shake it, get the air out of the bag and zip it up.
Put the bag in the pot, make it boil the time needed (around 13 minutes) and when it’s ready, just enjoy your new shaped omelette. The bigger the pot is, the more omelette bags you can prepare at the same time.

Energy drinks might be all the rage, but not everyone wants an instant pick me up; or rather, there are just some people that shouldn’t have one. With this in mind, a new company has created the anti-energy drink to help tone down the hyperactive.
