Absolutely. Sealed or unsealed, it doesn't matter so long as it isn't glass

Yep! I understand completely too! If it was a Pepsi-land I'd have to bring in my own contraband too

I am a diet coke addict and I really like the diet coke at River Belle Terrace. For some reason it just tastes better than at other fountains in the park.

In the restaurant I own we have constant problems with the Diet Coke on our fountain. I've had numerous techs from coke try to figure out the problem. Turns out that Diet Coke must be served at a temp of 35 degrees, whereas Coke, Pibb, and Sprite can be served at temps slightly higher than that. The temp of the Diet Coke affects its' taste and how well it holds carbonation. That's probably why a chilled CAN of Diet Coke (metal which holds cold better), tastes better than a chilled BOTTLE of Diet Coke. Of course the calibration of the machine and how often the dispensing nozzles are cleaned have a lot to do with it. Keep in mind that the nozzles where the soda is dispensed can become completely clogged, therefore changing the how well the syrups are mixed with the water.

That is so strange! I mean it makes total sense as to why a can would taste better...but the fact that it needs to be cooler. Huh!

Right? If they Dr Pepper I'd be in heaven...I don't even know if they have Mr Pibb but I don't know that it would taste the same. LOL

When I worked at the restaurant we cleaned the nozzles once a week.

In the Blue Bayou it is the best for the following reasons:

1) fountain syrup to water ratio is right
2) it is cold
3) perhaps the most important, it is refilled constantly!

Outside, hard to say I would say either bottled or any counter service restaurant where you pour your own pop is good. I prefer to occasionally mix in some reg coke if the diet is watered down.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. I plan to order some for the hotel fridge or bring a case along. When I worked at the movie theater in high school we washed them everyday with soap followed by a sanitzer like rinse?

ewwww I washed them in hot soapy fresh water and then rinsed them in hot water and sanitized them. I felt they should have been cleaned more but I only worked 4 or 5 nights a week so I cleaned them once, I'm not sure if anyone else ever did it. lol
