OK, so it's not exactly wine . . .

    Who cares?

    Coca Cola is not a beverage to be consumed by humans. Probably better for washing a car.

      The underlying science is as sound as it is for wine glasses.

        Hi, Robert:

        Is that why there are so many different ISO tasting glasses?

          Don't DO that when I'm drinking coffee at my computer!

            The soundness of the science underlying Riedel's plethora of wine glasses is indeed the reason there is only one ISO wine-tasting glass:

          Well, when I read the headline, I thought - "oh shoot (or similar), just when I had all of them, along comes another... "

          As I cannot recall the last time that we served a pop (or soda, or soft-drink) here, I think that I can safely skip this one.

            In Atlanta they all get called "Coke" or "Cocola."

            Hi, Jason:

            LOL, they claim it was designed only to work with Coca-Cola, not other colas or even Diet Coke. Riiiiiiiiiiight.

            What's next separate glasses for whole and 2% milk, so that the lactose "launches" onto the palate properly?

              I think I hear P.T. Barnum chuckling somewhere . . .

                I'm chuckling too...

                also about their extremely fine subcategories of wine that require special individual shapes.

                  Jason,

                  Will there be plans for a "Pepsi," and a "Dr. Pepper" glass, in the near future... ?

                    Well, duh! How could Pepsi and Coke share the same glass?!?!?!?
