Would you pay $20 for a Coca-Cola glass?

In case you're unfamiliar, Riedel is an Austrian company that manufactures pricey wine glasses. They claim that the design of their glasses makes a noticeable difference in how wine tastes when drunk from one. Now they have apparently branched out and designed a glass exclusively for drinking Coca-Cola. The glass, which retails for $19.99 each (or $29.99 for two), only enhances the taste of Coke, according to the company, and not Pepsi or other beverages.

I don't drink soft drinks very often, so I probably won't be buying one for myself.

Me neither (not buying one).
The fizz would go up my nose when smelling the aroma.

I didn't know a mass produced soft drink had nuances. I won't be buying the glass.

Niope, no glass for me, I'm a sucker for odd things, but this is waaaay out there.

I don't even notice the difference of the Moscato d'Asti out of a wine glass or water glass...

Yeah, I'm holding out for the root beer glass myself.

Although I think it would be tough to top A&W's classic frosted mug.

You should try it over ice in a McDonalds iced coffee cup, my mother recommends it...

She was lecturing her adult grandson about the dangers of becoming an alcoholic while holding this in one hand. She couldn't understand why he was laughing hysterically until he pointed at her hand.

Probably not. I wouldn't know if the flavor was improved or not. I don't drink sodas. That stuff rusts your pipes. ... except for root beer with a scoop or two of ice cream.

Nah, won't be purchasing one as I'm not a soda dranker.

But I can say that I <3 Riedel's stemless wine glasses.
