When you order a meal do you ask for no ice in your drink?or drink it with ice.Do you always drink it that way?I always tell them no ice,by the time im done drinking my soft drink lets say,its diluted too much from the melting ice chips/cubes and tastes watery.:)

I love ice. For one I'm aenemic and it's a stereotype that we chew on ice. This obviously being true for me. I love ice because I always chew on the ice. Even though it's just water there's just something about it. I'd never order a drink without Ice and I get real upset when the ice machines at fill your own drink stations when they are empty and not filling with ice. Ice rules!

Ha ha. Yeah. It's not the only reason people eat ice, but it's one reason. I just like having something to crunch on.

If im at home I dont put ice in it and on the rare occasion that its not cold enough and I do put an ice cube in it, yes I said one ice cube, I only put it in water. If its in a restaurant I just take it how it is, with ice. I always start drinking the new one they bring out halfway through your current drink to avoid the watery taste.

I like only hot drink as it could still retain the original taste until the last sip. Just same as you, I do not like cold iced drink because the melting ice cubes always dilute the beverage and turn it into different taste. I like iced canned or bottled aerated drinks just taken out from the fridge but not the one with ice chips or cubes in it. I believe no one likes to take any hot aerated drinks lol...

ITs depend on what kind of a drink. If it is softdrinks it should be cold whether with or no ice. No ice or with in water and so on..

Hi peanutjar! If I am home then no ice because I know the drink will be cold, but if I'm in a resteraunt then I ask for a little ice. I too have found if you don't say little ice or a few cubes they give you a ton. Love & Hugzz, Your Friend, PurpleTeddyBear

Well, i never take drinks without ice. There is something about drinks with ice and i love it only that way. I just dont like to drink anything without ice except for the hot drinks. Ice cubes are the best part and i believe that they give some sort of a different taste to the drinks which i enjoy more than anything else.

I am with you peanutjar, I like the carbonation, even though it is bad for me..lol I can't stand watered down soda, I think if I wanted flavored water, that is what I would drink, but if I am ordering soda, that my friend, has bubbles..;)

I always get ice in my drink. My husband doesn't seem to like having ice in his drink though for the same reason as you, and also because it seems like they put so much ice in drinks that you barely get any of the actual drink, lol. I still get ice though cause I like my drink to be really cold. :)
