Any discerning oenophile will tell you that the shape of a wine glass can make a huge difference in your imbibing experience. On the other hand, that could just be a bunch of bullshit. Either way, Riedel decided to do for Coke what it's spent decades doing for pinot: design a glass scientifically optimised for taste. We decided to test it out for ourselves.

I'm taking the last sip of home-brewed purple liquid. It's sweet yet balanced, fizzy yet quenching, smooth yet these words look a bit blurry. It tastes like a dangerously well-mixed drink. And just 48 short hours ago, it was Welch's.

Food, glorious food! For a while, anyway. Or if properly refrigerated. But when food goes bad, it goes bad - as demonstrated in this time-lapse video of the rotting flesh of dead animals and fruits we call dinner.

Equally important to the food you eat is how it's presented. Especially if that food is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and baby carrots, and you're carrying it to school day after day. That's the importance of the all-mighty lunchbox.
