Do you drink soda faster if it's cold than if it's warm?

I've gotten used to drinking my pepsi & root beer warm so I don't drink it very fast. But I've noticed that if I have a cold bottle or can of it, I'll drink it a lot faster than I do the warm or room temperature ones. So do you drink your sodas faster if their cold than you do if their warm or room temp?

The answer to that is absolutely! I love a really cold Pepsi! Wow!

If it is cold, I drink it slower, but if it is warm, it is gone in no time. Of course this, I have to go back in my memory as it has been years since I had soda, but I remember when I was a kid buying creme soda from the corner store and drinking it on the way home. I could not stand it warm, so I wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible.

I sip it normally. Eating or drinking faster cause trouble at times.

I drink more slowly if something is cold typically, to avoid brain freeze. =p However, I can't drink most sodas warm at all. They just taste gross to me warm, especially Pepsi. About the only ones I will drink warm or at room temperature are Cherry Coke or Dr. Pepper, even though I drink a large variety of types of soda cold. Strange that it would seem to taste so different based on temperature, but warm Pepsi is just disgusting to me.

Well, I try not to drink soda at all anymore, but when I do, I would only drink it cold. So therefore, I would say that I would drink it faster if it was cold. I have had warm soda before and I did not like it at all! Ice cold is the way to go for me!

I really don't like soda unless it is REALLY cold and yes - funnily enough I do drink it a lot faster the colder it is!

The colder it is the faster I can drink it, provided I am very hot and this drink came in handy, just at the right time. Most of the times, I do not drink gassy drinks, especially if it is warm or at room temperature. If it is cold, there is still a possibility I may drink it.

I do the same. If I have my Pepsi at room temperature, it seems to last me for quite a while. If it is cold though, I usually drink it right away and it only takes me a few minutes to finish it off.

i drink it faster when it's cold because it refreshes me. when it's warm i find that it tastes nasty or maybe it's just me.

I've noticed that too. I prefer Coke but still... I usually don't bother putting my box of cans in the refrigerator, mostly because there's no room most of the time. But when I do happen to get a cold one I find myself guzzling it down. I'm not quite sure why but that's what works for me!

I can't gulp cold soda. I will drink it fast if it has warmed up. My hubby is opposite -- he can chug soda and does on these very hot days. I don't know how he does it.

I can't drink soda warm at all! Yech! It grosses me out! I love soda super cold, and it seems the best way to have it really cold is right out of the can. Gah, I luuuuuurve soda, but I have really "quit the sauce" lately because I know it is no good for me. But man do I love it, espcially Mr. Pibb....nice and cold..yummee!
