Big Apple Bans Big Sodas

NYC will ban the sale of sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces.

The New York City health department has approved the proposed ban on the sale of high-sugar drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces. The size limit does not apply to water, diet sodas, or drinks sold in retail food stores. Customers who insist on dosing themselves with super-sized sodas will have to order more than one! Restaurants have six months to adjust their menus and container sizes.

PositiveTip: Find a place other than New York City to get your super-sized sodas.
