The question is: Why are drinks being targeted as a way to
kick extra cals? Well, soda and other sweet drinks are a serious source of
empty calories. There’s nothin’ nutritious about fizzy, sugary water that packs
as many calories as a cookie, especially when it doesn’t make ya feel full. You
may not realize it, but if you’re drinking a flavored iced coffee, for
instance, you could be takin’ in hundreds of calories.
This ban will affect everything from flavored iced coffees
to lemonade to sodas. There are a few exemptions, though. Milk-based beverages,
fruit juices and alcoholic drinks will be excluded from the ban. Businesses are
already thinking of ways to get around it, too, with deals like free refills or

This is so right! Americans have no self limitaions and really don't know when to stop. If they really need that 72 Ounce Big Gulp, they can buy 2 mediums. They aren't saying you CAN'T drink gallons of pop, they're just making it more difficult to get. No one needs gallons of High Fructose Corn Syrup.

Doesn't this seem a little gestapo to anyone? The local government telling you how much of something you can and can't have seems a little off to me. Shouldn't it be your own choice how much soda you drink? Oh wait maybe I'm confused which country we're in. I really thought this was the USA.

This new law can easily lead into communism. My parents came from a once communist country so I know. Those of us who do not have that problem should not have to suffer. I can limit myself in the amount of stuff I take in and I don't need someone to help me. I for one had been underweight for a while (now I am normal, but otherwise healthy as can be. Just because I needed to gain weight does not mean others do as well. We all have personal problems, however others should not have to suffer alongside us if the issue does not concern them. There are professionals who can help and family to support, but forcing it down our throats will do no good. There was a ban on alcohol ("Prohibition") in early 20th and that failed (increased crime rate and the alcohol was smuggled in "speakeasies")so this will too. The more freedom we have the better life is for all. If they want to live an unhealthy lifestyle, it is by their doing because in the end it is our own decisions that make or break us.

Do I think obesity is a HUGE problem in this country? Yes. But do I think that this law is the best way to solve it? I'm not so sure. I feel like it's a law that is easy to get around, and won't stop people from drinking as much soda as they want. I think the only thing it could do is make people aware of how much sugar they are consuming. However, I do think that Bloomberg is in the right for trying to face obesity, and it's not entirely correct to say that obesity only harms the individual. It can cause a lot of health problems, and cause people to be hospitalized..which can affect others if those hospitalized are uninsured. But that brings up other issues. Anyway, I don't think this ban will be very effective, but if it's the first step on the road to other, more effective laws, then I'm all for it.

Flavor: This flavor combines the best of both worlds—fruity strawberry and sweet vanilla.
Fab Fact: This blended treat is new this year in the Strawberry Lover's bag.
When you swallow chewing gum, it takes seven years to digest.
