For those who have everything: Coca-Cola + Riedel Glass

It sounded like a joke when Riedel claimed it had created a glass that turns drinking a Coke into “a magical sensorial experience.”

Yes, it sounded like a joke when Riedel claimed it had created a glass that turns drinking a Coke into “a magical sensorial experience.” But we were “pleasantly surprised” by the Coca-Cola + Riedel Glass when we tested it against five simpler vessels. Riedel has for decades sold glasses that ostensibly bring out the best in individual wine varieties, from burgundy to sauvignon blanc. For Coke, trial and error led to a shape that redistributes the soda’s bubbles in such a way that the imbiber isn’t “greeted by an onslaught of fizz.” The Coke “didn’t just taste better”; drinking it “was just a generally more pleasant experience.”
