Looking For An Old AskMe Thread May 11, 2007 12:17 AM   Subscribe

I'm looking for a post that I swear I saw on AskMe a while ago. It was a long discussion of why pop (soda, fountain drinks, etc) taste better out of Styrofoam cups than waxy paper or plastic (more inside).

There was one poster in particular who was naming different specific gas stations or restaurants in his/her area that had great tasting Pepsi (or Coke, or whatever). It's not this thread, and I've looked through all the threads that came up when I searched "Styrofoam". But I'm sure I saw it here. Anyone else remember it?

Don't know, but I do know that the root beer in the styrofoam cups at Governor's (Stillwater, ME) back in the day was to die.

Mountain Dew bottled in New York tastes better than Mountain Dew bottled in West Virginia. Just like Olympia, "It's the Water."

Did you try searching for the non-trademarked term - polystyrene?

Are you sure it wasn't just a comment in that thread?
