Why is it that you get more fizz/foam/bubbles pouring soda pop from a 2-liter plastic bottle, compared to a can, glass bottle, or regular-sized plastic bottle?

I'm guessing that it has to do with the volume of soda (and the volume of CO2) in the 2 liter bottle. Perhaps the fact that it has to come thru such a small neck causes extra fizz as well.

I never really noticed that. I do know one thing, Faygo Redpop has more "zing" than any other strawberry flavored soda. Why?

mac's on the right track, I think. the amount of CO2 that's soluble in the liquid depends on the partial pressure of CO2 in the neck. the less room for gas to escape, the more fizz is in the soda.

this only works, though, if the product that goes into each bottle is equally carbonated, and i'm not sure how the bottling process works...

I've never noticed much difference between soda pop sizes in terms of carbonation....all I know is that those 2 litre bottles go flat a lot faster in the fridge. I don't drink soda, but sometimes we need it for parties and it always goes flat. Cans are better, single servings.

this i can assure you is directly related to the size of the bottle.



and they say size doesn't matter...

Sad, no Faygo lovers in here. Two sodas from Detroit that are standouts - Faygo and Vernors. I can find them here but rarely, and they don't taste quite the same.

It's a large, regional soda company. Their two original sodas are redpop and rock&rye. I think they put more acid and carbonation in their redpop than other strawberry sodas - it really grabs your attention.

The Vernors in CA just doesn't taste like it does in Michigan - not as much bite.

I'm a Vernor's ginger ale fan - just not into strawberry soda!

As I said Mac, Redpop isn't your average strawberry soda. It's the only one I'll drink.

I prefer ginger beer to ginger ale, but my choice for ginger ale is still Schwepps...

Shake a 2-liter bottle and slam it around as hard as you can. It won't pop or break.
Shake a 12-ounce can and barely drop it. The pull tab and the aluminum is very weak.

2-liter bottles are specially designed to tolerate very high pressure without exploding. Higher pressure = more CO2 in solution.
