Sodas are about to get a lot smaller in New York City as Bloomberg's soda ban was officially approved. Several businesses will not be allowed to sell sugary beverages over 16 oz soon.
On Thursday,New York City's Board of Health approved Mayor Michael Bloomber's plan to ban large sugary drinks. The proposal was approved in a 8-0 vote. One member, Dr. Sixto Caro abstained from voting.
The unprecedented regulation, which was proposed in the spring, will apply to all restaurants, fast-food joints, delis, movie theaters, Broadway theaters, workplace cafeterias, sports stadium and food carts. All of these businesses will not be allowed to sell sugary drinks including non-diet sodas, teas and even certain coffees that are larger than 16 oz.

Next we’ll have a soda speakeasy in every neighborhood.
“Who sent you?”
“Come on in.”
They think 11 is old enough and mature enough for sex, but not for soda
Just popped the cap on a liter of Root Beer....Now, where’s that Vanilla Ice Cream...
You'll notice they didn't limit the size of malt liquors.
“Just popped the cap on a liter of Root Beer....Now, wheres that Vanilla Ice Cream...”
really, we NEED a like on FreeR
About 500 people, with 2 liter, sugary soft drinks...soak the streets with the soda all around the city hall. If the flies and ants don’t get them, the stickyness will.
So if it self sever will the person you pay need to taste the drink to see if it is self diet or not?
The proper response to this is for businesses to openly and publicly defy this law. Hang a sign out saying we will serve any freakin size drink you want to buy, up to and including a 55 gallon drum. Any regulators want to come in and stop us? Just remember who signs YOUR paycheck you jackasses.
Can’t wait to sell my bathtub cola.
Does NYC tax sodas? Because if it does, the last laugh is Bloomburgs when folks simply start purchasing two sodas instead of one. The city is now collecting double the tax revenue on sodas!
You nailed it! ~ NYC does tax bottled soda, so two 12 oz. = two times the sales tax...
I’m glad Bloomie realizes his people can’t think for themselves when it comes to nutrition.
Unfortunately I’m afraid he will still let them vote.....
You voted for MARXISM New York. Now enjoy it!
“New York City’s Board of Health approved Mayor Michael Bloomber’s plan to ban large sugary drinks. The proposal was approved in a 8-0 vote.”
That’s all it takes for the nanny statists to impose its will on 8 million people. 8 unelected bureaucrats.
That was my thought, too. All the fast food places are self-serve on the drinks. If you order a large are they going to watch you to make sure you only get Diet Coke?
NYC has plenty of money, right?
They can hire a couple thousand city soft drink monitors.
Helps the unemployment rate too.
When is Bloomberg going to ban buffet restaurants??
Ooh,now thats a treat I haven`t had in a while
Wrote them down on the grocery list for tomorrow
there is no prohibition however on selling you three drinks and giving you a large empty cup
What's not to like. Think of the exercise you will get running back and forth to the bathroom.
