Mayor Bloomberg tells state to follow city’s ban on sodas larger than 16 oz

NY Post: Mayor Bloomberg today called on the state to follow the city’s lead by banning the sale of sugary sodas in sizes larger than 16 ounces in all stores, not just restaurants. The city’s new law takes effect March 12 in food establishments regulated by the Health Department.
Supermarkets, groceries and shops where prepared foods constitute less than 50 percent of sales are not affected because they’re overseen by the state Agriculture Department and the city doesn’t have jurisdiction. Individual pizza parlors would have to obey the new law, even when it comes to deliveries.
At a press conference today, the mayor was asked why pizza shops shouldn’t be in the same category as supermarkets, where customers would still be able to walk out with all the two-liter soda bottles they could carry. “You have exactly the right question, but you’re asking it the wrong way,” the mayor said. “Keep in mind we’re trying to save the lives of these kids, particularly kids…The state should do exactly the same thing in stores.” Gov. Cuomo’s office said it was preparing a response.
Bars and nightclubs would also have to get rid of their large sodas under the city’s new policy. Bloomberg said he couldn’t understand how that could be a big deal. “If you’re going to drink more than 16 ounces of alcohol with something in it, you’re not going to get out of the bar,” he said. “Or maybe you’re going to go out on a stretcher.”
Large bottles of soda are usually part of the set-up when patrons at trendy bars shells out hundreds of dollars for “bottle service.”
The result of this ban?
And consumers, especially families, will soon see how the rules will affect their wallets — forcing them to pay higher unit prices for smaller bottles.
Typically, a pizzeria charges $3 for a 2-liter bottle of Coke. But under the ban, customers would have to buy six 12-ounce cans at a total cost of $7.50 to get an equivalent amount of soda.
How it could be a big deal? How about this Nanny Bloomberg  – let the customer decide how much soda they want to purchase and drink? You get what you vote for New York.

  1. It is not about saving the kids, it is about taxes. 2 1/2 times the $ for same amount of soda.

  2. Bloomie is nutty as a fruit cake. A short little man with a complex who thinks he controls everyone. Well what the state does vs. what the city of New York does is out of his jurisdiction. State lawmakers should tell him to go to hell, but we all know a good many of them are as nutty as he is.

  3. If it only saves one life… Bloomberg should shut up and stop aggravating people into having coronaries.

  4. I am totally against soda and the companies that push that sugary crap on people, but if your stupid enough to drink that crap, well then the health risks are on you not society.

  5. Thanks for standing up for the truth of the gospel! I’m trying to begin doing this on-line as well. The site I’ve set up has and will have many audios and videos on it to make learning what Christians need to in this present evil world as simple as possible. I think you’ll like it. Here’s the address: I’ve just started it last year and I’m trying to get this out to as many people as I can, so please pass it on.
    Thank you.
