That's stupid, they couldn't at least make an exception for diet coke?
They did, if I understand correctly the articles linked in the OP.
The proposal would not include alcohol, fruit juices or any diet soda. Grocery stores and convenience stores would be exempt. Iced coffee and other beverages where the sugar is added by the customer would remain unaffected. Drinks are also exempt if they contain more than 50 percent milk, which would most likely allow Dunkiní Donuts to sell Coolattas, and Starbucks Frappuccinos, as long as they can prove the milk content is there.
This said... 16 ounces are almost half a liter, right? Who is ever going to drink that
amount of soda in one go? Is it even physically possible?
