Spoon University[4] posted an article explaining that there is a reason McDonald's Sprite tastes different than Sprite from other establishments. Writer Ellie Gilchrist that McDonald's Sprite "uses a higher ratio of syrup concentrate to carbonated water," filters their water more than other establishments, ensuring that the Sprite is "gold standard," and keeps both the syrup and water in its soda fountains chilled at all times. Over the following two years, Twitter users have continued joking about McDonald's Sprite. On June 14th, 2019, Twitter user CapTn0Cat[5] tweeted a picture of a deceased alligator, saying "McDonald's Sprite got him," gaining over 40,000 retweets and 140,000 likes (shown below, left).
