    Do you like ice?

    I don't like having ice in a drink. My teeth are very sensitive and I find it near impossible to drink it so cold, also if I'm in a place like McDonalds I find that half my cup is ice I didn't even want. I always ask for my drinks without ice.

    Yes, I prefer my drinks to be very cold.

      I agree with some drinks, but in a situation where I am paying I would rather not pay for half a cup of ice

    I agree, I don't like ice in drinks!  I pretty much only drink water.  I find when it has ice or is extremely cold that it is difficult to drink.  I think America is unique in this regard - other places tend not to serve ice with drinks (International hubbers - correct me if I'm wrong on this!)

      I'm in the UK and we are given ice with any cold drink, I have to make it clear to the person if I do not want ice... And even then they get it wrong

    I enjoy drinking ice cold water on hot days or after a long work out.  Otherwise, it doesn't really matter to me if my drinks are cold or room temperature.

      Ice water really does irritate my teeth, it almost hurts! I much rather drink a squash with water I keep in the fridge... That's just right for me

    I like to have ice in my drinks, especially tea.  Of course, that might have something to do with the 100 plus degree days here in Texas.  The question is interesting.  I am looking forward to the responses.  I heard someone say that hot tea will cool you down.  Anyone have any experience with that?

      I can see how hot tea could cool you but I don't see it works. On a hot day here (very rare) I avoid tea but I did have one the other day and was pouring with sweat... The temp change could cool you or even the force sweat would be the cooling method

      Thanks for the reply.  I still have some time to try out hot tea on a hot day.

    The only times in my life that I liked ice in my drink was when I was pregnant and really hot. Otherwise, the ice hurts my teeth as well. I use a straw if I do have ice in my cup. Normally, I don't drink sodas and mainly drink water without ice.

    I am addicted to ice. Especially living in hot Georgia, I consumer it in masses. I understand about the teeth sensitive issues. I particular love shaved ice.
