Ice or no ice in soft drinks in fast food restaurants?
September 25, 2015 5:43am CST
When I order drinks in fast food places I never get the ice because without ice they fill the cups to the top with the drink itself. It is better value for money. The ice replaces the drink with frozen water which dilutes the drink as it melts. Also by the end of the drink it is hard to get to the last of the weakened drink because of the ice cubes and slush. If you try drinking from the cup rather than through a straw the ice hits you in the teeth and lips and the drink dribbles through. I’d rather go without the ice. Same with alcohol. I never order drinks on the rocks. I mostly drink beer which is served ice free anyway. How about you? Arthur Chappell

Yeah, I also order the servants not to add ice into my drinks when I consume in the restaurant. If I don't do so, they will add a lot of ice in my cup so that they could provide me with less drink. I understand that they wanna make profits by means of adding ice. But I don't like the way they don't directly ask me whether I need to add ice or not.

I share your opinion on this Arthur. It is a common trick to add plenty of ice in order to reduce the amount of drink. I often order coke or orange in a pub and every single time I am offered ice. Even at summer I prefer not to have ice, but often wonder why people insist on offering ice during the winter.
