    Weird Drinking out of the wrong instrument?

    Is it weird drinking out of something that the particular drink wasn't intended for?

    Is it just me or does it feel weird drinking water, juice, beer, cordial out of a coffee mug. It feels just as weird drinking coffee out of a normal glass. Even when they are heat tempered Latte glasses, different story if it's a Latte though..

    Thoughts?

    At Costa we have to now serve latte's in a glass, I don't do it out of principle, and because I am old school.. And I don't want customers to see that they are paying nearly £2 for a glass of warm milk..

    I'm not really fussy what I drink out of usually though..

    It does seem a bit different. Like when you dye water blue or something, and it seems to taste different.

    Anyone had Hungry Jacks "Green Ketchup"?

    Tasted the same, but seemed to be horrible just because of the colour

    They sold green ketchup at the supermarkets here.. Was a novelty item for the kids..

    I personally didn't notice any difference..

    But I did notice huge differences with the food colouring in water.

    We had Pepsi Blue.. It was just weird.. Not what you'd expect a blue coloured drink to taste like..

    It probably tastes like water mixed with food dye. Unless you dye it with paint, in which case it probably tastes like you shouldn't be drinking it.

    As insignificant as it is, Shounak has got this 100% right. I can't drink things in the wrong type of cup/glass. Also, I always have to eat my ceral in a particular type of bowl, same with yoghurt.

    For some reason, this thread has me thinking about Pizza in a Cup...

    It's true, I had soft drink out of a coffee mug and it seemed a bit weird, sort of like.. you know when you go to the toilet, and you forget to put the seat up... nah Im joking, seriously, who does that?

    Also - I've had green tomato sauce, it tastes no different but it seems disgusting (as Rich said).

    They taste exactly the same, but generally you expect tomato sauce to be red.. haha it's funny because most tomato sauce is probably a weird grey colour until it gets savaged by artificial colour additives.

    At first I read that as "You know when you go to the toilet and you forget to put the seat down."
