A report by Spoon University tried to decode the real reason why McDonald’s Sprite may taste different and has been resulting in the meme trend. “McDonald’s uses a higher ratio of syrup concentrate to carbonated water so that you get more of the delicious flavour you want. It also amps that sugar content up, making your body crave it more,” said McDonald’s management.
