Have you tried hot non-carbonated Coca Cola before? Well, I did today for the first time. To experiment the intrinsic taste of Coca Cola, I boiled a can of Coca Cola to remove all the dissolved carbon dioxide present in it.
Anyway, don't bother trying and wasting a good can of Coca Cola like I did. Hot non-carbonated Coca Cola tastes like, well, medicinal herbicide. It seriously tastes horrible. It's amazing how the fizz in Coca Cola can overpower the intrinsic taste of Coca Cola. Well done to Coca Cola!
