I'm trying to translate the phrase "Tastes great warm too!" as for a drink that you can have warm as well as cold (think tea and iced tea). Someone suggested I use

"Tout aussi bon chaud!"

Is that a good translation for what I am trying to convey? The language choice can be "youthful" but I want to avoid slang (especially since it needs to be properly understood in Quebec). If it is not a good translation what should I use instead?

    As a francophone of Quebec, this is a correct translation. Another idea could be: ''C'est (or Ça goûte) bon, même chaud''! – Archa Jun 29 '15 at 2:02

    @Archa "ca goute bon" may be correct in Quebec, but not in France. – Steven Jun 29 '15 at 4:31

    You can express it as "tout aussi delicieux chaud que froid"/"aussi bon chaud que froid" . thats a bit different from your original idea but something that you can see on french products at the supermarket for example. – Steven Jun 29 '15 at 4:33

    The following advertising uses the (very "advertising") sentence : "Toujours un délice, chaud ou froid". Could be a good inspiration in your case... – Laurent S. Jun 29 '15 at 9:01

Your first idea is usable as it is. Let's see the possible variants :

(I assumed that in your case, the cold way is the normal way to have this beverage)

Se consomme/boit également chaud (rather neutral)

Peut aussi être consommé/bu/pris chaud (a bit less formal than the first)

A essayer chaud / A essayer chaud (slightly playful)

Servez-le froid ou... chaud ! (playful)

And if you don't need to be laconic, you can even introduce these with something like Pour varier les plaisirs, ...

(and I didn't want to "steal" Archa's suggestion in his/her comment, but it also seems a good variant to me)

Well, taking off from what we see on some drinks cans, se boit frais ou chaud ?

  • Good point here : depending on the beverage, frais can be prefered to froid, mostly because in french it not only means "cold" but also conveys a "freshness" connotation. – RomainValeri Jun 29 '15 at 15:43
