And for good reason. Family pizza night? No 2-liter bottles of soda for you!
Nanny Bloomberg knows best, you see. You poor dears can’t be trusted to make your own beverage decisions, for goodness sake! Nanny Bloomberg unveiled his plans to further deprive New Yorkers of some yummy eats (or drinks) last year. Twitter users were, of course, outraged. Now comes news that the soda ban has quite a few surprises.
Birthday party for your child? No pitchers allowed.
More from The New York Post:
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.
“I really feel bad for the customers,” said Lupe Balbuena of World Pie in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn.
Priorities! During a time when many families are suffering and pinching pennies, let’s make things harder and more expensive for them, says Nanny Bloomberg.
A super-sized Nanny State. We’ve said it before: New York is no longer the Big Apple; it’s the Big Brother.
Now with more pain in your wallet.
