The latest in a line of healthy-eating initiatives during Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s administration, the beverage rule bars restaurants and many other eateries from selling high-sugar drinks in cups or containers bigger than 16 ounces. Violations could bring $200 fines; the city doesn’t plan to start imposing those until June.

Which doesn't stop anyone from drinking more than 16 ozs of liquid diabetes, it just forces them to get off their ass and walk to the counter/soda machine for the free refill OR buy another cup.

Bloomers nem meant well with this legislation, but they executed it pitifully.

Ppl need to learn that soda is an occasional treat, but its no substitute for water.


This is not a generic soda ban that NYC is proposing. It is a ban on oversized drinks being sold when bigger than 16oz. If a store wants to sell one bigger than 16oz, they need to be prepared to pay a fine.

As a point of reference, most bottles of soda are 16oz. The medium sized drink from Mc'D's is 16oz.

So it makes the NAACP's claims of disproportionately affecting minorities sound even more ignorant.

I can't speak to other cities, but in NYC, try to find a grocery store that DOESN'T sell fresh fruits and veggies?! I live in a west indian/hispanic neighborhood, and of the 4 grocery stores that are within walking distance of my apt building, ALL of them have pretty decent sized produce departments. So, even when the NYC NAACP leader Hazel Dukes said she has places in Harlem with no produce departments, I'm side eyeing her.

NYC has a ton of ethnicities - people recently relocated from their home countries. So, pretty much every grocery store in our city ESPECIALLY the ones in urban areas have very big produce departments, often carrying ethno-centric fruits & veggies.

IMO the NYC health initiatives are being aimed at QSRs that have little nutritional values. Most bodegas & delis I visit don't sell fountain drinks, everything is bottled.

NAACP should be ashamed of themselves.  Considering the rate of diabetes in the black community , does anyone need to drink more than 16oz of sugar water in one sitting?  The ban would force people to consciously seek out the additional 16ozs rather than just mindlessly gulping down 30+ ozs.  Not to mention that most of these sodas aren't even sweetened with sugar, but with corn syrup.

It might be able to stand up, since it does not stop the individual from consuming as much soda as they want, it just prevents mindless consumption.

Herein lies the problem. Personal accountability has almost all but disappeared now-a-days.



if that's the case, then everything should be legal.

there is produce in black neighborhoods but it damn sure ain't fresh...maybe it's different when u go to african or west indian neighborhoods but african american ones?  nah...and all of the food is processed and limited brands.  for example, this one african american community where i'm from fought for a fresh produce and real supermarket for YEARS...they finally got a Fresh & Easy(think whole foods junior) when they started developing condos...condos which yts moved into.  now that they are on a full scale to gentrification they're building a Whole Foods.

this reminds me if how the war on drugs targets users and dealers... aka the low end on the totem poll.
instead if focusing energy time money etc on stopping that sh*t from entering the country.

the problem is high fructose corn syrup. not the size of the drinks.
this bill is an empty gesture. smoke and mirrors.
