New York City patrons, say goodbye to your beloved large, sugary soda. Yesterday, The Bloomberg Administration decided "to enact a far-reaching ban on the sale of large sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, movie theaters and street carts." So what does that mean exactly? Basically, if you want a 32oz soda, you can't have one, but if you want two 16oz sodas you can. Makes perfect sense, right?
Obesity has become a very controversial issue and the fact that it now comes down to the banning of large sodas is just sad, but it doesn't apply to healthier options. Per Mayor Bloomberg's official announcement, "The measure will not apply to diet sodas, fruit juices, dairy-based drinks like milkshakes, or alcoholic beverages."
It's like The Prohibition all over again. What do you think will be next?
