“What is a chef’s favorite soft drink?"/"Baking soda.”

A chef riddle is:

Q: What is a chef’s favorite soft drink?
A: Baking soda.


The riddle was posted on Reddit—Dadjokes on April 4, 2022.


Wikipedia: Sodium bicarbonate
Sodium bicarbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate is a white solid that is crystalline but often appears as a fine powder. It has a slight alkaline taste resembling that of washing soda (sodium carbonate). It is a component of the mineral natron and is found dissolved in many mineral springs. The natural mineral form is known as nahcolite. It is also produced artificially.

Since it has long been known and is widely used, the salt has many related names such as baking soda, bread soda, cooking soda, bicarbonate of soda. Colloquially, its name is shortened to sodium bicarb or bicarb soda. The word saleratus, from Latin sal 忙ratus meaning “aerated salt”, was widely used in the 19th century for both sodium bicarbonate and potassium bicarbonate. The term has now fallen out of common usage.

Baking soda.

Edit: Thanks reddit (just my second post). Kids are a tough crowd, so I’m not used to this kind of response to a joke. I tip my chef’s hat and raise a glass (of baking soda) to you all.
