    It's crispier?

    So if you didn't know, McDonald's Sprite is, well...different from other varieties of Sprite.

    I'll explain why in a moment.

    People describe it as...an experience:

    drank McDonalds Sprite and saw God

    And over the past few days Twitter has been blowing up about McDonald's Sprite...

    McDonalds sprite so damn strong you gotta be 21+ to drink that shit 😂

    There have even been some memes:

    Now I've had McDonald's Sprite before and I guess I didn't notice the difference immediately but there are THREE distinct reasons why it's better...

    First, there's more sugar and more carbonation.

    According to an article from Spoon University last year, McDonald's Sprite is better because there's more syrup (aka sugar) than standard fountain Sprites. Besides that BOTH the syrup and soda water are kept chilled.

    Secondly, Spoon University says, "McDonald’s filters its water twice as much as competitors, giving your Sprite that 'gold standard' quality every time, because better water means better Sprite."

    Finally, believe it or not the STRAW has a huge impact because it's wider than normal straws so more sugary sweet soda hits your taste buds at once.

    So, that's why your McDonald's Sprite sends a jolt through your body unlike any other Sprite.
